COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier says
Alabama used some tape trickery on field goals and extra points
last weekend and is asking the Southeastern Conference if what he
saw on video is legal.

Spurrier said Tuesday it looked like the No. 1 Crimson Tide
holder put a small piece of white tape on the ground to spot PATs
and field goals, then quickly put the tape in his pocket after the
kick.

Spurrier says it's the first time he has ever seen a team do
that.

SEC spokesman Charles Bloom says the league is looking into
Spurrier's claims.

Alabama kicker Leigh Tiffin hit both extra points and field
goals of 25 and 35 yards Saturday. He missed a 49-yarder.

Alabama officials didn't immediately respond to a message
Tuesday.
