Steve Spurrier made the long-anticipated switch at quarterback last week, handing the offensive reigns to Connor Shaw after Stephen Garcia had played himself out of contention. Shaw didn't disappoint in his first start in 2011, making the Head Ball Coach look like the Evil Genius from his days at the helm in Florida.
Shaw completed 26-of-39 passes for 311 yards with four touchdowns and zero interceptions, looking poised in the pocket and grew in confidence in his second start of the season.
The Gamecocks offense picked up under their new signal caller, posting a 51-point win over Kentucky and racking up a total of 639 yards of total offense on the day.
Shaw's output gives the Gamecocks hope for repeat performances in the future and these players are certainly happy to have him under center.
Here are five players that will benefit the most with Connor Shaw calling the shots.
