Football: Taking the next step

Aug 8, 2010 9:08:00 PM - thestate.com

After the first week of preseason drills, Steve Spurrier is sure of one thing.

“Everybody’s on time now,” the South Carolina coach said Sunday at the Gamecocks’ media day.

Spurrier said freshman defensive back Victor Hampton is the only player who showed up late — and that was for a meeting that had been held a half-hour later the previous few days.

Promptness and regular attendance have not always been strong suits for USC under Spurrier, who said “in the old days” as many as five players would miss mandatory breakfast. Former strength coach Mark Smith would punish players with a Stairmaster workout, but there were more offenders than there were machines.
