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.
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.
