Steve Spurrier is an epic troll in his postgame pressers, and he's at it again after the South Carolina Gamecocks dominated the Arkansas Razorbacks. Josh Kendall at The State newspaper from Columbia, S.C. quoted him:

You'd have to think a 52-7 drubbing would be enough of a horror for the Arkansas fans to deal with. There's nothing worse than getting dominated at homecoming in your own stadium.

Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw, running back Mike Davis and the Gamecocks defense all performed exceptionally on the day. Shaw finished with three passing touchdowns and a rushing touchdown while Davis was able to give the Gamecocks a legitimate running threat to offset the passing game.

And the defense was more than stout enough to hold Arkansas to just seven points: Take out three runs that gained the Razorbacks 29, 45 and 50 yards, and the Gamecocks defense allowed just 124 yards on the remaining 34 plays. 

It was an embarrassing effort for the Razorbacks on offense, but at least Spurrier was nice enough to give Arkansas a backhanded compliment at the end of the day. 

But then again, he does have a point. Arkansas played Texas A&M and Rutgers tough and has still won three games. The Gamecocks went in expecting a fight from an Arkansas team that has a lot of natural talent. 

Unfortunately, they didn't show it today and got steamrolled. The head ball coach just loves to rub salt into a downed opponent's wounds, and today he deservedly trolled Bret Bielema's Razorbacks.
