You can’t spell 2016 without 12.

It suddenly dawned on me what Steve Spurrier’s target date is – not for retirement, but before he’ll consider retirement.  He coached at Florida for eleven years.  He’s entering his tenth season in Columbia.  You do the math, but I think he’s looking forward to eclipsing his longevity mark.

It wouldn’t surprise me if he’s saving up a little dig to throw Foley’s way at the start of the 2016 season.

    True, but didn’t he say when he quit Florida that nobody should stay anywhere longer than 10 years?

    He’s 104 wins from passing Bryant. He’s got 12 years If he wants to stay until he’s older than Bowden was at retirement. The glory of Steve Spurrier still excites Steve Spurrier, so he could be thinking in those terms.

      Even SC fans will want him out before then. He has gotten progressively worse in recent years, imo, I cannot imagine him using a Hover Round to take the field to the 2001 theme, not to mention driving to the wrong bench.

    Unlike many coaches Spurrier doesn’t burn the midnight oil in the office or worry himself sick 24/7/365. He will last until he gets bored.

    And maybe he really just enjoys the job and wants to do it as long as he can. It’s so easy to ascribe dubious intentions to one we deem as evil..but I’ll say this..he’s one of the great’s and he is entertaining.

    That’s not very nice to the flaming jackass’s of the world.
