Never gonna give it up.

I guess that means he plans on coaching until he’s dead.  Talk about a program held hostage.  Recruiting, for the win!

    …because SOS knows its Jimmies and Joes not X’s and O’s. Doesn’t matter how good your design is a pass from a kid who can’t throw to a kid who can’t catch or get open ain’t gonna work out too well. And if you’re throwing at Deion Sanders, you’d be better off doing anything else even if you are open and you can throw.

    Russ Tanner gets back from the Baseball Winter Meetings and has to deal with this?

    I wouldn’t exactly take the retraction as any sort of commitment from SOS. He is 70, I don’t think he wants to be a Bobby Bowden. He’s trying to save this recruiting class, if he can do that, I think he still leaves in 2 years. If he can’t save a good class, next year could be his swan song.

    It’s hard to put toothpaste back in the tube.


  5. I will miss him. I will miss his comments. SEC will be a poorer place.
    I will always appreciate his throw down with the Kiffenator in the elevator. Tide is changing. Going out and leaving remnants of a foregone era stranded and wasted on the beach. Won’t be too long before college football as we loved it is carried away on the tide of ESPN largesse. The semipro era is upon us and our grandchildren will have no feelings,understanding or love about tailgating and rivalries.

    Memories. We do have Youtube.

    I would bet over half of sec coaches will have been fired or moved on in 4-5 years. Unfortunately, a player can rarely expect to play for the same coaching staff that he commits for the duration.

    Tangent: very interesting article on coaching performances 2014 at BC. Not sure I follow the statistical model, but it argues that Richt overperformed this year, which is not how I would think most Dawg fans view it.

      It’s how most Dawg fans viewed a 9-3 record last February. Of course, now that we have that record, it’s an abomination.


      • playmakers in space

        I’m not saying it’s an abomination, but it’s about who we lost to. 9-10 win seasons are not played in a vacuum. It’s the same reason why a lot of folks (myself included) felt 2008’s 10-3 was such a disappointment.


  8. Spurrier shooting from the hip,being a little petulant prick and saying saying something he really means but subsequently tries ti walk-back/take-back/or claim he was just kidding about…well I’m shocked I tell ya. Next thing you know there will be gambling in Casablanca or demonstrations in Washington DC……Why I shocked sir ,simply Shocked!!

    Steve is making an annual habit of eating his words publicly these days with this example being almost as embarrassing as last year’s “Clowney is an entitled, lazy, slacker insinuation. He is far from being the coach he was before SC, and it has diminished his legacy. Many thought he was risking his reputation by going to Columbia when he took the job but he has become a much smaller person in Columbia than I ever thought he would (and that is more about how he has handled discipline issues, like Garcia and Clowney than his W/L record.) It seems very likely he will never get an SEC for that program regardless of how long he stays, and is not going to be able to dictate his son get the job to follow him as HC. Failing at those two objectives, and limping much more every year, he should consider accelerating his retirement, not delaying them. This effort will not save the recruiting class but may stop the bleeding somewhat. Sad to see him end an impressive career like this. They seem very desperate in Columbia and that is a good thing.
