SOUTH CAROLINA QUOTES
South Carolina Head Coach Steve Spurrier
On Marcus Lattimore...
On importance of holding Georgia to field goals...
Sr. QB, #5 Stephen Garcia
"It feels good to get a win in a hostile environment, especially because first game ever won when trailing in the fourth quarter. The non-offensive touchdowns that we got were the difference in the game. Definitely, the most bizarre win I've ever gotten in college, but all that matters is that we got the win."
Jr. WR, #1 Alshon Jeffery

Sr. DE, #6 Melvin Ingram
On the fake punt...
Georgia Head Coach Mark Richt
"South Carolina is a tremendous team, and I think Georgia's a darn good team if we don't help the opponent too much. I saw an awful lot of fight from our guys, I saw some outstanding plays at crunch time, I saw banged-up guys sucking it up and going - all the ingredients of a very good football team. But very good football teams don't turn it over the way we did. So we're potentially a very good football team.
"I thought we kept fighting. We took the lead a couple of times and never gave in. The clock just ran out on us basically.
"We have a number of guys who are inexperienced, but they will get exponentially better. I think we can have a heck of a football team. I think this is a team that will get better as the season goes along. In time, we're going to shake off the mistakes and become a good football team.
"A lot of guys showed a lot of character. They played their tails off. We just can't make that many mistakes and expect to win the game. ... We've still got a lot of football to play, and I think we're still in the Eastern Division race.
"We've definitely been through some really tough games, games that take a lot of guts, energy and games where you need the majority of things to go right to get the victories. We lost and we understand that. But we're going to be a good football team. We're resilient enough to shake it off and make the corrections.
"We have a tight-knit group. Our guys love each other and believe in each other. We will tweak a couple of things and be in good shape. The future is still very bright. We've just got to do things to get results on the scoreboard."
