Shaw's status against East Carolina remains in doubt
AP Sports Writer
COLUMBIA, SC (AP) - South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier doesn't
want to hear about the Gamecocks' passing struggles, a botched
pass-interference call late in the game against Vanderbilt or whether
quarterback Connor Shaw's head-first slides led to the injury that might keep
him out of this week's game.
Spurrier said Tuesday what matters is No. 9 South Carolina played hard down
the stretch and opened Southeastern Conference play with a 17-13 road victory
over the Commodores.
Spurrier wasn't feeling too good about his team's showing until his friend,
Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops, called to congratulate him.
Spurrier says D.J. Swearinger played outstanding defense on Vanderbilt's
final pass, despite replays showing early contact.
Shaw's status against East Carolina (1-0) remains in doubt due to a deep
bone bruise. He hasn't practiced since the win.
