COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier is so
bothered with his offense that he's ready to get a whole new one.
Spurrier says no one's job on that side of the ball is safe this
week as the Gamecocks (2-2) prepare to play UAB (1-3).
Spurrier says he doesn't expect wholesale changes when he
announces his starting lineup after Thursday's practice, but says
he wants to shake things up with an offense that has struggled to
run the ball or throw long passes.
The coach says redshirt freshman quarterback Stephen Garcia will
play, but hasn't decided if he will start in place of sophomore
Chris Smelley. Whomever starts should have an opportunity for a big game against the Blazers defense, which is allowing 495 yards and 35
points a game.
