Steve Spurrier, Connor Shaw call out South Carolina fans for leaving
South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier and quarterback Connor Shaw were not pleased with the Gamecocks' student section, calling out the team's fans for leaving early in their 35-25 win over Vanderbilt Saturday.
"First off," Shaw said. "I don't think there's any excuse for our stands to be emptying out, I was kind of disappointed in that."
Spurrier was disappointed in the fans, questioning the football culture of the school:
"I hope we're not reverting back to the days when football wasn't very important around here and the pregame party and the postgame party was more important than the game itself," Spurrier said. "I'm hoping the Gamecock fans will treat the game as the most important part of their Saturday football day. It didn't appear that way yesterday."
South Carolina held a 35-10 lead in the fourth quarter, but two early Vanderbilt touchdowns made it a 10-point game with around 14 minutes to play. The Gamecocks' next home game is on Oct. 5 against Kentucky.
