Spurrier, South Carolina trying to take next step

HOOVER, AL (AP) -

South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier doesn't necessarily sit in recruits' living rooms emphasizing the chance to go 11-2.

The Gamecocks have posted that record three years running, but have still been relegated to spectators for the Southeastern Conference championship game. Spurrier said Tuesday at SEC media days he pitches prospects on the shot at playing on South Carolina's first league championship team.

Spurrier says, "I think we've been close but not close enough."

They won the SEC East title in 2010. South Carolina's No. 4 ranking in the AP poll last season was its best finish.

New starting quarterback Dylan Thompson says South Carolina fans and the team are "hungry" for a championship.

Now, Thompson says 11 wins is "not enough for us."
