Michigan State's offense hopes to bounce back

Q: Do you get involved with non-conference football scheduling or do you leave that to Steve Spurrier?

A: I was very much involved in doing the deal with North Carolina for the 2015 opener in Charlotte. That being said, I just went back to Coach Spurrier with another suggestion. Make no mistake, he is very much involved in what we do in non-conference scheduling.

Q: Steve Spurrier, obviously, has been very successful and has quite a big personality. Have you clashed at all or had any disagreements with him?

A: I really haven’t. The admiration that people have for Coach Spurrier and his decision to come to South Carolina are things our fans will always cherish. He didn’t have to come here, and his intentions are to remain here. He and I have been friends. You hear people say, ‘We’re family’ in athletic departments and a lot of times it’s rhetoric. It’s really true here.
