COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina football coach Steve Spurrier said Thursday he is positive university officials will revise the admissions process for athletes to his satisfaction.
Last weekend, Spurrier said the process left him embarrassed and angry after two of his recruits were denied admission to the university despite being cleared by the NCAA to enroll.
In response, the school has created a committee that includes president Andrew Sorensen, athletic director Eric Hyman, professors, coaches and other administrators to discuss the university's special admissions process for athletes.
The committee plans to have its recommendations to Sorensen and the university board of trustees by the end of September, according to the school.
Over the weekend, Spurrier threatened to leave South Carolina if things didn't change. He seemed much more optimistic Thursday.
``I feel positive President Sorensen and the university administrators will revise our recruiting process to where we're all satisfied and we can eagerly and enthusiastically go about our business in recruiting,'' Spurrier said in a statement.
