Shaw's status against East Carolina remains in doubt

COLUMBIA, SC (AP) - South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier doesn't want to hear about the Gamecocks' passing struggles, a botched pass-interference call late in the game against Vanderbilt or whether quarterback Connor Shaw's head-first slides led to the injury that might keep him out of this week's game.

Spurrier said Tuesday what matters is No. 9 South Carolina played hard down the stretch and opened Southeastern Conference play with a 17-13 road victory over the Commodores.

Spurrier wasn't feeling too good about his team's showing until his friend, Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops, called to congratulate him.

Spurrier says D.J. Swearinger played outstanding defense on Vanderbilt's final pass, despite replays showing early contact.

Shaw's status against East Carolina (1-0) remains in doubt due to a deep bone bruise. He hasn't practiced since the win.
