Gamecocks Deliver Rumors...Not Pizza


Even though I'm a USC graduate and live two blocks from 5 Points, I certainly wouldn't qualify myself as a Gamecock football expert. That said, it's difficult to miss the gossip about Moe Brown "throwing a punch" at asst. coach Steve Spurrier, Jr. Even the group in front of me in the Starbucks line was talking about it.

The blog post below should clear the rumors. Joe Person, long time Gamecock beat writer at The State Newspaper, seems to have some pretty accurate scoop. FJ

A story from Birmingham that’s been making the rounds on message boards is that senior receiver and team captain Moe Brown took a swing at receivers coach Steve Spurrier Jr. in the locker room at Legion Field after the game.

From what I’ve been told by multiple sources, the two had a heated argument about Brown’s role in the offense, but no punches were thrown.

The incident supposedly began when Spurrier Jr. approached Brown in the locker room to congratulate him on a good career. But Brown was having none of it, and started yelling at Spurrier Jr., upset that he was not featured more prominently.

Brown only had a couple of passes his thrown his way against UConn, one of which he dropped. He finished with one catch for 12 yards against the Huskies, and was USC’s second-leading receiver on the season behind freshman Alshon Jeffery.

Brown has been one of the Gamecocks’ best leaders and a great ambassador for the university, volunteering at community service events and never turning down an interview request – and there were many – from the media.

I’m sure Brown – like everyone else affiliated with USC – was frustrated after what had been a long, cold day in Birmingham.
