Spurrier not sure what to expect from Gamecocks

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier's not quite sure what his 10th-ranked Gamecocks will do next.

Spurrier and his staff have preached that players must put aside the campus buzz over their first win against a top-ranked opponent last Saturday and focus fully on Kentucky this weekend. However, Spurrier hasn't seen anything yet that shows him the Gamecocks know how to handle prosperity.

The coach said Tuesday that South Carolina's game with Kentucky is the biggest of the season, in part to show if the program has grown into a championship challenger in the Southeastern Conference.

Spurrier says his Gamecocks haven't won enough yet to be considered an elite team, despite their first top-10 ranking in three years.
