Spurrier wants to see improved passing game vs. Georgia

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - When Steve Spurrier's favorite thing about South Carolina's offense is his quarterback's clean-cut appearance, the coach is not pleased.

Spurrier was glad to see Stephen Garcia freshly shaven and hair cut before the 12th-ranked Gamecocks defeated East Carolina 56-37 Saturday. As far as their offensive execution, Spurrier could do little but shake his head over the lack of production.

Spurrier says South Carolina has a lot of work to do as it opens the Southeastern Conference season at Georgia this week. Spurrier was especially disappointed with the passing game. Garcia and sophomore Connor Shaw were a combined 10 of 25 for 131 yards with one touchdown - Garcia's 3-yard pass to Ace Sanders. Spurrier says that won't cut it against the Bulldogs or any other SEC opponent.
