2008: The Year of Living Easily

Spurrier’s constant wanking over scheduling might be worthy of more respect if it weren’t so blatantly self-serving.  In other words, where was he in 2008?

2008- Alabama: The Crimson Tide opened with an overrated Clemson team, who would finish the year with six losses, while Tulane, Western Kentucky, and Arkansas State rounded out its non-conference slate…Faced just two ranked opponents – No. 13 Georgia and No. 14 Ole Miss…Like Kentucky two years later, eight of Alabama’s 12 regular-season opponents finished their respective regular seasons with non-winning records.

And speaking of 2008, don’t forget to compare Georgia’s and South Carolina’s schedules from that season.  That lack of balance inspired crickets from the OBC.

The point is that over time, this all comes out in the wash.  Spurrier’s problem is that at this time in his career he doesn’t have that luxury anymore, so he’s resorting to his next best option:  working the refs.

    What I continue getting a kick out of is that he keeps whining about our schedule and how “easy” it is when his OWN TEAM is a part of that schedule. I chuckle every time I think about it.

    Spurrier’s main problem is that he is a whiny gash.

    He needs some cheese to go with that whine. If his team takes care of business we aren’t a problem. GO DAWGS let’s shut the Old Ball Coach up.

    Yeah, so I have given this a lot of sober reflection and fair-minded analysis. I am left to conclude this: what a dick.

    Spurrier is a WAB, aka Whiney Ass Bitch

    I really don’t have a problem with Spurrier complaining because of the way the deck was re-shuffled after conference expansion.

    Related to 2008, a couple of thoughts:

    1) The conference part of the schedule had been set, so there really wasn’t a reason for Spurrier to be all up in arms then.

    2) If we’re going to parade around talking about how important the CFB regular season is, then we probably need to give more respect to how teams are ranked at the time they are played. For example, though Clemson ’08 stumbled badly overall, I like to think they were a pretty good team, but their beat down in the season opener gave them a pretty good shove off course.

    Have a good day,
