• South Carolina football coach Steve Spurrier usually says what he thinks. We liked his comment regarding punter Joey Scribner-Howard following the Capitol One Bowl victory: "You never see me yell at our punter when he kicks one of those 25-yarders.

The incident led to a significant amount of publicity across the state, causing a black eye to CHS and the city itself.
