Gamecocks Football: 9 Days Until Kickoff

061113_spurrier_hsml_12p_h2_mediumSteve Spurrier is excited as the Gamecocks are now just 9 days away until kickoff.

9 is the final ranking of South Carolina in last season’s AP Poll.  The Gamecocks actually finished higher at 8 in the Coaches’ Poll.  The minor disparity isn’t due to a disagreement among voters.  Southern Cal wasn’t allowed in the Coaches’ Poll.  Nonetheless, it was a consensus Top 10 finish, the first for the program and a great milestone to build on.
