“He took it upon himself to go before the rules committee and get it done,” Spurrier said. “They tried to change the rules. But I don’t think they’re gonna get away with it.”
SEC Media Days are gonna be a freakin’ blast.
You gotta give him credit for being fast on his feet.
Best part of Spurrier's interview w/ NFL Network was to Terrell Davis: "Glad they didn't give you the ball when you were at UGA." Classic.—

Although it may just be a reflex at this point.
Steve Spurrier still not predicting retirement date. "People tell me my memory is OK, and I can still call the plays. Why stop?"—

It suddenly dawned on me what Steve Spurrier’s target date is – not for retirement, but before he’ll consider retirement. He coached at Florida for eleven years. He’s entering his tenth season in Columbia. You do the math, but I think he’s looking forward to eclipsing his longevity mark.
It wouldn’t surprise me if he’s saving up a little dig to throw Foley’s way at the start of the 2016 season.
I guess you could say Swinney sees Spurrier’s “state championship” snark and raises him one.

As snappy comebacks go, that ain’t half bad.
UPDATE: Spurrier being Spurrier.
Steve Spurrier just called. Declaring Cocks kings of bowl season cause they beat six bowl winners.—

So who gets the win here? The OBC for the tally, or Dabo for making Spurrier react in the first place?
He may not be able to get you to a BCS game, ‘Cock fans, but at least he knows how to push your biggest button.

You know, I bet he can do those in his sleep.
… the more Steve Spurrier remains a dick.

You know what else the OBC can say? Since he’s been at South Carolina, he’s won as many SEC championships as UT’s coaches have, too.
Gotta give Spurdog credit – there are times when he makes me laugh.

Nit pick and grumble all you like about defensive shortcomings, special teams brain farts, Bobo’s playcalling… whatever. This season is rapidly shaping up as my favorite under Richt, if for no reason other than this one.

It’s killing him; it really is.
It was hot and humid last Saturday in Orlando. Working the sidelines in the sun for several hours can take a lot out of a guy. There’s a cure for that, though.
The catch is that you probably shouldn’t go on television shortly after feeling more like a man in that way.
That being said, you’ve got to admire the “aw, screw it” attitude behind this response.
Questions about Spurrier’s on-air manner during the broadcast have been raised on local and national websites.
Asked if that was due to fatigue, Spurrier said, “I guess so.”
When asked if he was impaired in any way, he said, “I hope not.”
When asked if he had been drinking after the game, Spurrier replied, “Whether or not I have a few beers after every game for the past 29 years I don’t think I need to get into all that. Most coaches that I know we probably do have a few beers after ballgames after building up all week and so forth…”
Maybe Spurdog ought to get Brent Musburger to work The Steve Spurrier Show. A little knowing empathy never hurts.
