South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier met with the media Tuesday afternoon to preview Saturday's SEC East road game against Kentucky. The Gamecocks and Wildcats will kick off at 7 p.m. on ESPN2.
"They are a team that is very capable. I think we are better than them, but if we don't play better than them, they can certainly beat us. The team that usually plays the best wins the game. It's a huge game for us being a division game and hopefully we can go up there and play without some of the errors we had last week. Sometimes, you hopefully learn by your mistakes."
"We're on schedule right now. We are very healthy. Our (athletic) trainer, Clint Haggard, came in the other day and I said, 'Is everybody ready who was ready last week?' and he said, 'Yeah.' Everybody was fine. A player like Brandon Wilds, who played extremely well last year, if there is a chance to redshirt him, we may do that. Unless somebody gets hurt, Brandon will have another year to play and he is all for that, which is something that maybe hasn't always happened around here. Players actually look forward to being redshirted. They like playing for the University of South Carolina."
On the play of special teams last week
"Joe Robinson is an excellent special teams coach. I think the players really enjoy playing for Coach Robinson and he does a super job. Special teams was a big part of the game last week."
On the 2010 loss at Kentucky
"Personnel wise they might be a little below some of the SEC teams, but they are a well-coached (team)."
