Envy and jealousy: there’s all kinds of jerks out there.

Andy Staples relates a great Steve Spurrier story in his article about Randy Edsall’s hypocrisy:

… While coaching at Florida in 1999, Spurrier was asked about intra-conference transfers by Mike Bianchi, then a columnist at the Florida Times-Union, at SEC media days. At the time, a debate raged in the league as to whether SEC-to-SEC transfers should have to sit out two years. “It’s a free country, isn’t it?” Spurrier asked, rhetorically. Then he looked at Bianchi. “Hey, Bianchi,” Spurrier said, “you didn’t have to sit out two years when you switched newspapers, did you?”

Using Spurrier mocking Bianchi to make a point about Edsall – that’s like playing with the matryoshka dolls of dickishness.   Nicely done, Mr. Staples.

    Should’t “dickishness” be in the lexicon?

    “matryoshka dolls”. Holy smoke! That is one great feat of trivia Senator!

    Yep, these definitions, straight from the dictionary, pretty well describe both parties. Sally Jenkins pegged Randy Edsall as Chief Petty Officer in her article. The dictionary backs her up and goes further to define randy pretty much as dickishness.

    Two birds with one scorn? Couldn’t resist , Senator. When they line up so well and as defined by their names….well.. can’t resist.

    Spurrier is on the money there. I think no transfers should have to sit out.

    matryoshka dolls of dickishness? Where you come up with this stuff?! Lol did cojones steal your handle?

    And nicely done Steve Spurrier. Steve makes a good analogy to support the right point of view and then gets to mock Bianchi in the process.

    Everyone wins
