Ahead of a must-win matchup for Clemson, we took some time out of preparing for Turkey Day to talk with the fine folks over at Garnet and Black Attack, SB Nation's South Carolina site. A big thanks to Gamecock Man for answering our questions and our answers to their questions will be up soon.
STS: Before the season started everyone predicted South Carolina would take a step back in terms of talent. What has happened to cause it to be such a drastic drop off?
GABA: I don't have a good answer to that question. It wouldn't totally surprise me if he retires after this season, particularly if he goes out somewhat on top with another win over Clemson. I don't think he's the kind of guy to leave on a sour note, at least not after a single bad season, so if Carolina loses this weekend, I think he'll stay. To be honest, though, it's really hard to say. Spurrier says the same thing every time he's asked about retirement, and it's hard to get a good read on how he really feels.
