South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier gives his thoughts on Joe Paterno and the scandal that is rocking Penn State.


HOOVER, Ala. (AP) -- Steve Spurrier finally has South Carolina near the top of the Southeastern Conference heap. He also believes he has the talent to keep the Gamecocks there.

One year after leading South Carolina to an 11-win season, Spurrier said Tuesday that "we're getting a little bit of a name out there.'' The 67-year-old Spurrier is entering his eighth season at South Carolina. After five mediocre seasons, he is 20-7 the last two years.

Spurrier said he expects junior quarterback Connor Shaw to be improved this fall after playing well late last season. He also expects star running back Marcus Lattimore to be completely healthy after a knee injury wiped out the last half of his 2011 season. The Gamecocks also have a senior-laden defense.
