Letter from USC Coach Steve Spurrier

Via The Daily Gamecock

Nice letter from the Head Ball Coach to the Students a few weeks back. I agree with him as the Carolina Student Body did a good job in 2009 getting behind the gamecocks and making playing in Willy B truly a home field advantage for Carolina as they finished 6-1 this season at home.  Best home record since 1988.

Copy of letter below....

To The Carolina Student Body,

I want to personally thank you for the super support that you gave our football team this ‘09 season. Shepard Smith, a news anchor with Fox News and an Ole Miss alumnus, said that Williams-Brice was the loudest SEC stadium that he had ever been to after our victory back in October. This past Saturday, you and all of our other great fans made it very difficult for Clemson to hear their signals and try to communicate throughout the entire game.

We won six of seven at home this year, with our only loss to No. 1 Florida, and it was 17-14 in the fourth quarter. We definitely have a big-time home field advantage here at Carolina. This is “Our House!”

Our coaching staff and our players believe there is no better place to play college football than right here in front of our Carolina student body.

Thanks again and Go Gamecocks!


Steve Spurrier
South Carolina Head Football Coach
