When it was a 4th-and-2 from South Carolina's own 26-yard line, there was no reason for head coach Steve Spurrier to call two timeouts in the exact same situation. He should have either gone for it, had his quarterback attempt to draw the Vols offsides and then call one timeout, or just punt it.
The fact that he called two timeouts and still didn't go for it looked weak and took the wind out of South Carolina's sails at the end of the game. Spurrier is the reason why the Gamecocks were able to fight back, but his decision at the end is why they lost.
