Things are bad at South Carolina – and Steve Spurrier’s had it with his starting quarterback, Perry Orth.

He’s replaced him with true freshman Lorenzo Nunez, who actually looked like South Carolina’s most dangerous option – outside of Pharoh Cooper – in the Gamecocks’ 52-20 shellacking at Georgia on Saturday. Nunez will start against UCF.

Nunez went 4-5 for 18 yards and 76 yards rushing against Georgia, while Orth was 6-17 for 66 yards and 1 INT.

I think it’s the first true freshman quarterback as a coach I’ve ever started, but that’s just where we are right now,” head coach Steve Spurrier said in a press conference. “Lorenzo gives us maybe a little spark in there that we need offensively.

He added: “I don’t know that we’re a one-quarterback team completely, but if (Nunez) goes out there and plays very well and takes care of the ball we could be a one-quarterback team.

BOTTOM LINE: Spurrier needed to do something – and Nunez is probably the right decision.
