South Carolina coaches were working in the team’s football stadium studying film when they were told to leave Sunday morning.

Why? Flood waters.

“A lot of areas were being closed down,” South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier said on a teleconference with reporters on Sunday.

The Gamecocks have much more to worry about than their 2-3 record or facing No. 7 LSU (4-0) on Saturday afternoon. As of Sunday afternoon, four people had died in the massive flooding in South Carolina.
