I am a Carolina grad and fan and don't really disagree with what you said. I do think you can't really discuss this topic without at the same time mentioning the childish, 10 minute video taped rant that Dabo had a couple years back when it was pretty well proven that he planned it and seeded the journalist that asked the question that began his rant. Talk about childish trash talk (USC is in CA and Carolina is in Chapel Hill, etc). Spurrier makes comments about actually beating Clem5on. Dabo makes comments that are immature 5th grade smack talk because he can't actually beat Carolina.

Mark is spot on. There is nothing wrong with being critical of coaches when you are actually basing it on something. Did Morris have any reason at all to believe Shaw was playing hurt? Had he spoken to doctors, Shaw's family, someone "inside" USC football?? No. He had not one credible thing that he cited to base his accusations on. He simply put out a lazy piece full of off-based accusations. Those things are actually ok on a blog such as this, but published in the single largest newspaper in South Carolina. Bad, bad journalism and there has been a long history of these kinds of pieces from Morris on Columbia vs USC. I dont blame coaches at all for taking a strong stand when their integrity as a professional is being called into question with no facts whatsoever to back it up. And yes, I am a Carolina alum and fan who does think Steve Spurrier is God but is awfully happen he is coaching the Gamecocks.
