COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- His team has talent, but South Carolina
coach Steve Spurrier says it's just a matter of getting his offense
in gear. The Gamecocks take a break from Southeastern Conference this week against Football Championship Subdivision member Wofford. South Carolina has lost six SEC games in a row, and the offense
is ranked 10th in the league.
Spurrier says sophomore quarterback Chris Smelley will start
against the Terriers, but says freshman Stephen Garcia is getting
more time in practice running the offense.
Star receiver Kenny McKinley will likely not play for the second
straight week because of a hamstring injury. The Terriers may not be a pushover. Two years ago they lost 27-20 to South Carolina, losing a fumble at the Gamecocks' 10 in the final 30 seconds.
