Confident South Carolina finishes quiet spring

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier didn't get a lot of answers out of spring practice, but for once he came in without a lot of questions.
Spurrier said after Saturday's spring game that he will wait until fall practice to name a backup quarterback.
Spurrier already knows Dylan Thompson will be his starting quarterback. Also, second-team all-Southeastern Conference tailback Mike Davis will get most of the carries and four starters return on the offensive line from last year's 11-2 team.
There are plenty of questions on defense because Spurrier won't let them loose on his offense in the spring. The Gamecocks must replace star defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and nearly the entire secondary.
