COLUMBIA, SC (AP) - Steve Spurrier has no time for motivational speeches, not with so many ball plays swirling around in his head.

The South Carolina coach rarely stops putting together the sixth-ranked Gamecocks offensive schemes, outlining how best to attack an opposing defense. It's made the one-time Heisman Trophy winning quarterback and national championship coach among college football's best big-game leaders.

And Spurrier's got another huge one ahead on Saturday when South Carolina (5-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) faces No. 5 Georgia (5-0, 3-0) at Williams-Brice Stadium. The contest will go a long way in deciding the SEC Eastern Division.

The Gamecocks have won 11 straight games against divisional opponents. They've beaten Georgia the past two seasons.

Spurrier said Tuesday he's not the guy for rah-rah speeches, keeping focused on his offensive schemes.
