South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier says he is closing the rest of his team's practices because too much about what happens is being reported on Internet sites.

Spurrier says he is sorry the fans won't be able to watch the Gamecocks anymore, but too much was being revealed on the Web.

Spurrier made the surprise announcement Monday night. Practices were scheduled to remain open until the weekend.

Since he was hired before last season, Spurrier has held a number of open practices -- bucking a trend by most coaches of keeping nearly all their workouts closed to the public.

yeah, the Flordia Gators practices are supposed to be closed too, but as i drive by the feild on hull road (not the practice facility but a feild for intermurals) there they are with about 200 or so people trying to peak through the blue mesh fence. I thought it was funny.
