This is why Connor Shaw came to South Carolina.
He has been given a chance to lead South Carolina to new heights under the guidance of one of college football's all-time greats, Steve Spurrier.
Spurrier is known for his love-hate relationships with his quarterbacks, but right now, it seems like it's a lot of love for Connor Shaw right now from the head ball coach.
Shaw worked his way onto the field in 2010 behind former quarterback Stephen Garcia. His time to shine, though, came in the middle of the 2011 season. He proceeded to lead the Gamecocks over wins against Tennessee, Clemson and Nebraska en route to 11 wins on the season.
