Spurdog’s still got that schedule thang going. Just not with Georgia anymore.
You haven’t hesitated to point out how much scheduling has impacted both the SEC and national championship races the past few years. What do you make of your schedule this year given the fact that you avoid Alabama, LSU and Texas A&M in the West?
SS: It evened out a little bit, but we play Clemson every year and also play North Carolina this year. Georgia’s got a tough schedule this year, too. Did you see who Texas A&M plays out of conference [Rice, Sam Houston State, SMU and UTEP]? That’s embarrassing…
At his most frustrated, I don’t think he ever referred to Georgia’s last two schedules as “embarrassing”.
Bonus quote, about signing with the Gators: “Florida was sort of an underdog at that time. They’d never won anything. Amazingly, when I got back down there coaching 27 years later, they’d still not won much of anything.” There are plenty of Gator fans who would profess not to know what Spurrier’s talking about there.
