How much of the South Carolina fanbase do you figure has been engaged in debating the merits of Skip Holtz and Steve Spurrier this weekend?
Speaking of the OBC, it looks like we’re going to get a heavy dose of the coy side of the man this week.
… Spurrier is 22-17 in his fourth season in Columbia heading into Saturday’s 3:30 p.m. CBS game against No. 2 Georgia (2-0, 0-0). After going 122-27-1 with six SEC titles and a national championship in 12 seasons at Florida, that has prompted some to wonder if the game may have passed him by.
“With the way we play offense, you can say that,” Spurrier said Sunday. “Two years ago, our offense was pretty good but it ain’t been very good lately, that’s for sure. That’s part of the game. If your team doesn’t play well, you’re not a very good coach and I’m not a very good coach right now. That’s just the way life is. When I had a bunch of guys running around scoring a bunch of points, I was a real good coach.”
Aww… isn’t that the cutest? Plus, he’s unsure. About everything.
But there’s always that little zinger that gets tossed in at the end.
“It’s very consistent each year,” South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier said Sunday. “They’ve played very well the week before, and we’ve not played very well the week before. We’ve had pretty good games with them every year, so hopefully we can get in a close game with them and make a play or two to beat them. They’re certainly one of the best teams in the country, as we all know.”
As we all know, because he likes to remind us, the Dawgs have been there many times before when he’s beaten Georgia. Hopefully, Richt isn’t bothering to buy into Spurrier’s bs this year.
Georgia’s opened as a 7.5 point favorite for Saturday’s game.
