SEC Media Days 2012: South Carolina Coach Steve Spurrier Likes His Gamecocks
South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier is never at a loss for words, and his appearance on Day 1 of SEC Media Days was no exception.
With running back Marcus Lattimore returning, quarterback Connor Shaw established at quarterback and a defense that is one of the nation's best, Spurrier thinks that his team could be the best team he's had in Columbia since taking over in 2005.
"We could potentially have a very strong team, but we could go the other way," Spurrier said. "I think this is the most talented team we've had at South Carolina."
Spurrier joked with reporters, saying that he's been three- or four-years from retirement for a few years now, and that he's making too much money to quit now.
"I guess I'm still on '3 or 4 more years'," Spurrier said. "It seems like it hasn't changed. After a while, you're making good money and you don't want to quit. I'd say I'm a good three or four more years away at this point.
He also has respect for the two new teams.
"It wouldn't surprise me if [A&M and Mizzou] are in the hunt to win the division this season," Spurrier said.
As for the defense, Spurrier is expecting big things from sophomore defensive end Jadeveon Clowney. Clowney burst onto the scene last season notching eight sacks as a freshman.
"I have full confidence and I like what we are doing on defense," said Spurrier. "We expect Jadeveon to play more than he did last year. We need to turn him loose."
That's a scary thought for SEC offensive coordinators.
