Head Coach Quotes

South Carolina 30  Florida 22
Keys to the Game
1. Visor Envy
Florida fans may want to get rid of AD Jeremy Foley now that their savior, Urban Meyer, was beaten by their former ball coach.   It was rumored that Spurrier left because of Foley in the first place and Foley wanted Spurrier to interview for the job last season.

2. Chess Game
Spurrier's smaller, slower chess pieces played bigger and moved faster than Meyer's on Saturday at crucial times.  
Florida did hold the Gamecocks to 246 total yards.

3. Finding the Mismatch
Spurrier made a living off doing this at
Florida; finding that weakness and attacking it until 50 points were on the board. The Gator D does have some holes in it, especially in the secondary.

Spurrier's offense was kept under wraps most of the afternoon, but they came up big when they needed too. WR Sidney Rice was the star with 5 catches for 112 yards.
4. "Play to your talent level"
Once again,
Florida was beaten by a more determined, more inspired team.  See Ron Zook Era

Keys to the Game:
1. 1-2 Punch

3. Off the Bench
Whitehurst played and showed no ill effects of a bum shoulder that has been bothering him for the second half of the season.   He was 21-32 for 269 yards and three touchdowns.
