The hot take you’ve been waiting for

No, not this one.  But I digress.

You knew Spurrier would have some snark for one on his former assistants taking a 2-10 team into Neyland Stadium and winning.  And he doesn’t disappoint with this:

The “until” is a super nice touch, I think.

Your Daily Gator emerges victorious.

Sure, I could give you 500 words on Florida’s epic win last night over a team that doesn’t have a functioning offensive tackle, but instead, I’m gonna outsource the job to one Steven Orr Spurrier, who’s forgotten more football than I’ll ever know.

That came after Franks’ inexplicable late interception, but there were plenty of other moments worthy of that take.

Oh, and if you wanna get meta for a sec, here’s commentary on Spurrier’s commentary.

With bonus commentary on the commentary…

Say it ain’t so, Stevie.

Man, Spurrier.

Like with many media interviews with Spurrier, at some point during the conversation he talked about his feelings towards Georgia. The 74-year-old Spurrier started off his rhetoric in a modest and respectful tone, perhaps because Herschel was there:

“We couldn’t tell many jokes about Georgia because they were kicking our butts. They beat Florida 15 out of 20 times in the 70s and 80s. So we got a chance to turn it around in the 90s, and so forth.

“A lot of times, those stupid jokes I told – they were just meant for the Gators.”

Lame.  I actually respect him less for backing off the bravado.

Just another day in Paradise

Apparently this is a thing.

Former Virginia Tech head coach Frank Beamer and former Florida and South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier will coach in the Polynesian Bowl on Jan. 18, 2020, at Honolulu’s Aloha Stadium, the bowl announced on Wednesday.

Beamer will coach Team Makai (Ocean), and Spurrier will coach Team Mauka (Mountain). The game will be broadcast nationally on CBS Sports Network.

Good luck, Mauka.  Your coach sounds like he’s got one foot on the beach already.

“Hawai’i in January to coach in the Polynesian Bowl is about as good as it gets,” Spurrier said in a statement. “I’m looking forward to being part of this amazing experience.”

All I can think of after seeing that quote is this:

That is the look of a man ready to put the hours in.  Don’t forget to pack the golf clubs, Coach.

Steve Spurrier, class act

He may be quick with a quip, but he’s still a dick.

I guess that made it okay for him to bail.  In his mind, at least.

TFW you run out of Georgia and Tennessee snark

For some reason, Visor Man decided to take a shot at his last place of college employment, where I thought he received better treatment than he dished out.

“I tell you the football gods have been smiling on me the last two (AAF) weeks,” Spurrier said about the Apollos being fortunate to be 3-0. “I think all the crap I had at South Carolina those last two years, they’re coming back. They’re smiling on me a little bit.”

So the football gods were handling recruiting?  That explains a lot.
