Spurrier really upset, compliments Auburn OL coach

Spurrier was back at it again on Tuesday.

Upset with the play of his offensive line, Spurrier said, "Our line looks pretty good running out there. They look pretty good and then the ball is snapped and sometimes we just don't compete hard enough. But they're our guys and we're going to try to get them to play better."

He then indirectly gave a shout-out to Auburn offensive line coach Jeff Grimes.

Spurrier said, “Those Auburn guys played pretty well. Their guys could block. I don’t know who their line coach is, but he’s a hell of a coach.”

"When losing begins to hurt these guys as much as it hurts some of us, we'll have a good team here at South Carolina. But I'm not convinced losing hurts these guys much, or else they'd play better. They would really play their assignments and play better. They're either not smart enough to play or losing doesn't hurt - one or the other because they're big, strong guys.”

As far as the quarterback situation, Spurrier said Garcia will start in two weeks against Alabama, but he’s not too thrilled with Garcia’s two fumbles in the second-half at Auburn.
