COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Call it the Head Ball Coach media blackout.
South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier refused to take questions for a second straight session with the media, doubling up Sunday on the trend he began during Saturday's postgame session after the sixth-ranked Gamecocks defeated Missouri 31-10.
Spurrier started his regularly scheduled Sunday teleconference as always with about a five-minute review of the previous day's contest, an update on player injuries and a look ahead to the Gamecocks next opponent, Kentucky. That's when he said he didn't need to take questions and hung up before anyone could protest.
Spurrier seemed jovial Saturday as he spoke to media following South Carolina's victory. After talking for about 10 minutes, Spurrier said he didn't need to take any questions, got up and left.
