    I was down on the far end of the practice field, right next to the intial 7 on 7 drills and witnessed what I thought to be another classic, hilarious Spurrier-QB interaction. Shaw was at QB for a play and shortly after the snap Spurrier was right behind him yelling "THERE IT IS! THERE IT IS!". The play broke down, Shaw scrambled to the left, and the play was blown dead. Spurrier went up to Shaw and began talking to him (I couldn't make out the conversation). When Damiere Byrd came jogging back to the LOS, Spurrier said to him "Hey, tell him how wide open you were! Come over here and tell him how wide open you were!". Gotta love Steve. One of my favorite parts of being a Gamecock fan haha.

    Without a doubt the most frustrating thing for Steve is when QBs don't see the field the way he does.

    Which, I think, is about everybody.
    Always remember... stay Feisty.

    the case here. Byron is a big boy, with some great athleticism for his
    size.
    I'll believe we've "upgraded" when I see it. Now, I don't doubt that Jerideau will be good on some plays. What I question is durability - the ability to start and play most of a full game. In understand that he is, by all accounts, in much better shape than last year and ready to contribute more minutes/plays. I hope he is in good enough shape to be able to make that big play on the sixth play of an opponent's drive. I hope he dispels my doubts (and I reaffirm what I owe this board if/when he does)

    Here's the upside to this statement.
    For the first time in YEARS . . .he doesn't have to be durable enough to
    go long into games. We actually have another guy or two who can come
    in and give Byron Jerideau a blow if he needs it. . . . Kelcy Quarles is
    looking real good and improving with each practice. He'll see the field a
    lot this fall. We also have North Dixon and Phillip Dukes who are getting
    some work with the 2nd unit Line and have done some good things. We
    are deep and talented on our front for the first time in a while, and our
    starters don't have to run on empty like they did a couple of years ago.

    I'll stand by my statement however that when Byron IS in the game, He
    will make believers out of a lot of people. The guy moves and plays like
    he was half his weight, and I seriously doubt fatique will enter into the
    equation of whether he is a better player than Ladi was.
