South Carolina Game to be on CBS

It has been announced that this Saturday’s Florida-South Carolina game will be the 3:30 CBS game. It is not surprising considering the other games that CBS reserved for telecast were Georgia-Auburn and Alabama-Mississippi State. UGA-AU will go to Raycom, while I would assume Bama-Miss St. will head over to some flavor of ESPN network.

It will be Steve Spurrier’s second trip back to Gainesville as the Gamecocks’ head coach, and Urban Meyer is calling it a rivalry game. I’m not sure why he calls it a rivalry, but I guess it comes from Spurrier’s presence and the fact he lost this game his first year. It’ll be interesting to see if he still calls it a rivalry after Steve heads to the golf course for good.

Either way, this is good for viewers but bad for those attending the game as they will have to sit through CBS’s soul devouring TV timeouts, the longest in the industry.

    Didn’t know Urban is calling it a rivalry game. Spurrier is trying to downplay the significance of the game.

    Ever since Meyer got to Florida, he has tried to embrace UF’s past, not hide from it. That includes the Spurrier days. I think calling this a rivalry game is his way of continuing to do that.

    Sounds like a good idea to me. I know the Spurrier factor makes this game more emotional than it might be otherwise for some of the Gators fans, so I don’t see why Urban shouldn’t speak to that side of things.
