Steve Spurrier and his Gamecocks face the seemingly impossible task of defeating the Georgia…
Thursday's Practice Report - Pre Georgia 2005
On the announcement of the home-and-home series with North Carolina: "Glad to see our athletics director and theirs got together on a game. Should be a good game for both schools. We don't have to worry about it for quite a while. I think it's good for both universities and both states. It probably makes more sense to play it on the campuses of both schools. I think it's a game the fans from both schools would like to see. Why not? We're South Carolina and they're North Carolina. It's like South Dakota and North Dakota, West Virginia and Virginia - they play each other. It's a logical game. They used to play all the time."
On Chris Leak breaking his consecutive pass record: "I didn't know it was still there. I had some good receivers - they caught everything. We had a lot of high percentage passes in the game plan, that's for sure. Congratulations to Chris Leak. He's a beautiful passer. He throws a much better ball than I ever did. His ball very seldom has any wobble on it."
On whether he has any records remaining at Florida: "Only as a coach."
"Mike Davis is scheduled to start at tailback. Daccus (Turman) can play some at the "one" back also. We've got all of them ready. We may see what Taylor Rank can do in live action."
"Our special teams play has to be better than it was last week."
On his expectations of what Georgia will do defensively: "I always expect them to do whatever they want to. If they feel like blitzing is what's best for them, they will, if they don't, they won't. We've got some sort of a plan for everything."
"If we're going to have any chance at all, the receivers and quarterbacks will have to play a huge part."
"Hopefully we'll come out ahead. Shoot, if we play our game and get a few breaks, anything can happen."
