South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw (14) fumbles the ball when he gets popped in between East Carolina's Daniel Drake (59) and Terry Williams (54) during the first half of an NCAA college football game in Charlotte, N.C., Saturday, Sept. 3, 2011.

COLUMBIA, S.C. — When Steve Spurrier's favorite thing about South Carolina's offense is his quarterback's clean-cut appearance, the coach is not pleased.

Spurrier was glad to see Stephen Garcia freshly shaven and hair cut before the 12th-ranked Gamecocks defeated East Carolina 56-37 Saturday. As far as their offensive execution, Spurrier could do little but shake his head over the lack of production.

Spurrier says South Carolina has a lot of work to do as it opens the Southeastern Conference season at Georgia this week. Spurrier was especially disappointed with the passing game. Garcia and sophomore Connor Shaw were a combined 10 of 25 for 131 yards with one touchdown — Garcia's 3-yard pass to Ace Sanders. Spurrier says that won't cut it against the Bulldogs or any other SEC opponent.
