Gamecocks finally have chance to win SEC East — if they can change

COLUMBIA, S.C. — The first sign that something had changed at South Carolina came during last Saturday’s scrimmage, when the entire offense stayed at the line of scrimmage after a play to wait for the next play to come in from the sideline. It had to be a two-minute drill. Steve Spurrier wouldn’t just run no-huddle in the middle of a game, would he?
He might.
The second sign came when tailback Jarvis Giles took a handoff, scanned one side of the field for a hole, bounced outside and blazed down the field for a huge gain. The play looked less like something Fred Taylor might have run and more like something Steve Slaton might have run. Spurrier wouldn’t ditch his draw-oriented run game for a zone scheme, would he?
