The battle of Columbias, Missouri at South Carolina on Saturday, features a pair of teams in foul moods.

The Tigers are coming off a 31-27 home loss to Indiana, and the Gamecocks didn’t play well in a 48-34 victory at Vanderbilt.

At least, South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier didn’t think his team played well, and he shared his thoughts in the postgame news conference.

Some of the highlights:

“I’m the head coach of this embarrassing group of guys.”

“We got the voters fooled.”

“I’m taking over kickoff coverage.”

“I’ll try to get smarter in the future.”
