Quotes from Coach Crowe's OVC Press Conference

On any quarterback controversy:

"People have inserted their opinions into it; they need to save their breath. I recruited both of them. I love both of them. I'm going to do the right thing for both of them and first I'm going to do the right thing for our football team. . . . The rotation is going to be what I say on Saturday."

On Marques Ivory:

"A great game manager that knows how to win." Crowe also praised Marques on the 97 yard drive he directed against UTC and his play in the 4th quarter.

On Coty Blanchard:

"A young man that's as dynamic of a playmaker as I've been around . . . He's a baller."

On in-state rivals:

"Samford won't play us anymore."

Other notes:

*Calvin Middleton is banged up and may not be able to play this weekend. Crowe said the next option would be Jamal Young.

*Crowe said we will be at full strength on defense against Ga. State for the first time this season.

*A key early season test for the Gamecocks is EIU. They play Martin this weekend and will be without three starting offensive linemen.

  1. We can't play Troy, Samford doesn't want to play us...UAB and South Alabama are about the only ones left.
