Tide Cheating with Tape?

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.
