Steve Spurrier reflects on recruiting cheatin’ in today’s SEC:
Do you think there’s less cheating in the SEC than there was in the 1990s when you were at Florida?
SS: I think there’s less cheating, but I think there’s more ‘I don’t give a damn’ about the little rules. You know, the secondary stuff. I heard a coach say, ‘If I need to call a kid, I’ll get my wife to call him on her phone. I didn’t call him, so that’s not a violation.’ That’s the kind of stuff we’re dealing with now. I don’t think anybody’s buying cars or giving cash away the way they were years ago, but the secondary things are going on more than ever.
It’s all part of the plan, as someone likes to say.
