South Carolina quarterback Connor Shaw was not pleased with the Gamecocks' student section on Saturday, calling out the team's fans for leaving early in their 35-25 win over Vanderbilt.
"First off," Shaw said. "I don't think there's any excuse for our stands to be emptying out ... I was kind of disappointed in that."
Running back Mike Davis, who is described as angry at the fans by the video's title, was seemingly caught off-guard by the question and seemed to just be giving a plain, coachspeak answer.
Head coach Steve Spurrier, who's previously questioned the football culture of the school, cut the fans some slack:

Spurrier: "Our fans were super...to scream and yell when Vandy comes to town is good. I'm not going to chew them out for last night."— Michael Haney (@Haney1075) September 15, 2013
South Carolina held a 35-10 lead in the fourth quarter, but two early Vanderbilt touchdowns made it a 10-point game with around 14 minutes to play. The Gamecocks' next home game is on Oct. 5 against Kentucky.
