Spurrier, South Carolina get off to slow start

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - It wasn't the crisp start to bowl camp South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier hoped for Saturday with several players finishing up final exams and not at practice Saturday.

Spurrier said there was confusion about when his team would be wrapped up with fall semester exams so he cut short the planned workout as the 11th-ranked Gamecocks (10-2) began preparations for the Outback Bowl.

Spurrier called it a "helter-skelter type practice" before he sent the Gamecocks to the weight room. Spurrier expected things to return to normal when the team practices again Sunday.

Spurrier said senior receiver D.L. Moore broke team rules and would not be with the Gamecocks when they face No. 19 Michigan on New Year's Day. Spurrier did not specify the reason for Moore's discipline.
