South Carolina has one of the best home field advantages in the SEC. The Gamecocks are 32-5 over the last five years, and Saturday night was no different, defeating the Commodores 35-25.

And as the senior leader and face of the program, Connor Shaw was none too pleased fans left early and made it a point to address it during the post-game press conference.

Davis was nice about it, but Shaw took it further, “First off, I don’t think there’s any excuse for our stands to be emptying out. I was kind of disappointed in that.”
The Gamecocks were throttling the Dores 35-10 late entering the fourth quarter, but a late rally cut the lead to 35-25.
Last year Spurrier called out the Carolina football culture after fans left early against ECU, via AL.com.
“I hope we’re not reverting back to the days when football wasn’t very important around here and the pregame party and the postgame party was more important than the game itself,” Spurrier said. “I’m hoping the Gamecock fans will treat the game as the most important part of their Saturday football day. It didn’t appear that way yesterday.”
Connor Shaw has quietly had another great season so far, but all anyone wants to talk about is Jadeveon Clowney and Mike Davis. Shaw continues to be the SEC’s most underrated player.
