Steve Spurrier welcomes one of the SEC’s newest members as only Steve Spurrier can.

Hey, Longhorns, the sooner you learn he’s a dick, the better.

Okay, that’s funny.

Score one for Shane Beamer at SEC Media Days.

Let’s see if his sense of humor remains intact at season’s end.

Don’t want your pity.

How long has it been since 1980?  This long ($$):

Steve Spurrier remembers what happened, and recalls it with a surprising sadness for Georgia’s sake, considering he may be the program’s ultimate nemesis. Ask Spurrier about Georgia’s long championship drought, and he volunteers that the Dawgs are “certainly capable” of ending it this year, and even downplays the long wait.

“There’s 41 years that a lot of other schools haven’t won one either,” Spurrier said.

Argh.  I’d rather have the mockery.

Reflex

Spurrier gone Spurrier.

If you asked him about global warming, he’d find some way to use it to make a smart ass comment about Ray Goff.

“I forgot to tell you my favorite story about running up the score.”

I’m really torn here.  Is Steve Spurrier an asshole when Georgia Tech is the butt of his mockery ($$)?

“So we’re playing Georgia Tech the next week, and we’re going up and down the field like we did against almost everybody and we threw the ball, stayed in four wides on the 1- and 2-yard line. They didn’t know what was going on. One time they didn’t even cover our wide receiver. I heard the public address announcer, ‘Steve Slayden has just tied the ACC record for touchdowns in a game with five,’ and there were seven minutes left.”

Spurrier went to Slayden on the sideline and told him he was going to get that record.

The following Monday, a reporter from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution called Duke athletics director Tom Butters.

“He said, ‘Mr. Butters, you’re a sportsman, you believe in fair play and treating people right. What do you think about your coach running up the score on Georgia Tech last week?’ (Butters) said, ‘Let me tell you how I feel about that. I have been the athletic director at Duke for 22 years now and this is the first time anyone has ever accused my football coach of running up the score and to tell you the truth, I sort of like it.’ That was a good one.”

(Why do I have the feeling Furman Bisher was the reporter?  Ah, but I digress.)

I think I’m just relieved his favorite story doesn’t involve the Dawgs.

Fergit, hayull.

Ray Goff has a long memory ($$).

When Will Muschamp was hired to replace Steve Spurrier, it brought up two very different emotions for Ray Goff. He was happy his former player was getting another shot to be a head coach in the SEC, but the thought of Spurrier still doesn’t sit well with Goff.

“I was happy for him. He’s a good guy, good person. I’m talking about Will,” Goff said. “I’m not going to say much about Spurrier.”

If you can’t say anything good about someone…

“Let me talk about the word quit.”

Steven Orr Spurrier, ladies and gentlemen ($$):

He was thinking a lot, particularly, about Atilla in 2015 when he walked away from South Carolina’s football team midway through the season…

“In my situation, I thought it was like that. In ‘Leadership Secrets of Attila the Hun,’ it says, ‘When defeat is inevitable and there’s no way you can win, it’s better to retreat and come back and fight another day.’ Quitting to me has always meant in the middle of a game you have a chance to win and your players or coaches quit on it. That’s quitting. I felt like I was defeated. I needed to retreat, to get out, and maybe somebody (else) could provide a spark that I could not provide for that team. Maybe it was just such that nobody could have helped it much.”

Even as he’s baring his soul, he still can’t bring himself to mention getting waxed by Georgia as a cause for his despair.  Gotta give the man credit for staying on message.
