Steven Orr Spurrier, speaking about his offensive linemen:
“They’re either not smart enough to play or losing doesn’t hurt.”
And yet those guys pushed Georgia’s front seven around all afternoon long. Sigh.

How do we not collect all of these quotes from the OBC and show them to prospects (like Lattimore)?
“Son, you can go to uSC and be berated, belittled, finish with a mediocre record and virtually by-passed by the NFL, or come to UGA.”
“I’ll be waiting on the high dive for ya!”
Oh, never mind….(sighs)
Danny Wuerrfel was once asked how he was able to handle Spurrier’s tirades with such aplomb. His response went something like;
“I would rather play for a coach that demands perfection than play for one that accepts mediocrity.”
Garcia has had similar quotes to the tune of, “once he stops talking/screaming/benching me – i know he’s stopped caring”
Tough love. If SOS thinks it he says it he can’t help himself. Still after all these years you’ve got to admit he is seldom wrong.
SCu’s season was over after they beat the Dawgs. That was all SOS wanted. That was his bowl game, his rezon d’etra, his pinnacle of success. He can now return to imploding the team and is working diligently toward his usual 5 losses.
“The SEC championship, that’s a milestone for the team,” (Aaron) Davis said. “That’s one of the goals we set before the season started. … Guys want this game bad.”– AB-H, 12/1/17
