“Some people never have enemies…”

Andy Staples makes the historical case for Steve Spurrier being a first-class dick.  Okay, a sensitive first-class dick.

Of course, we already knew that.

And Spurrier deserves every bit of crap he’ll get thrown his way for yesterday’s presser, if only for allowing Mark Bradley to play the “hey, what did I do?” card.

BREAKING: Steve Spurrier thinks Mark Bradley is a Georgia homer.

If I understand things correctly, Steve Spurrier called a presser on short notice today because… well, because of this:

Jesus, dude, you’re losing it.

Now you’re really losing it.

If Spurrier gets a little cocky when he thinks he’s got a good team going into the season, what the hell does today indicate?

UPDATE:  If you’re interested, here’s the piece that set the OBC off.

Hey, isn’t that Steve Spurrier?

The OBC gets off to a familiar start at SEC Media Days.

Not exactly his “A” material…

It wouldn’t be SEC Media Days without memes, part two.

Steve Spurrier’s getting old, y’all.

3. The 70-something

When South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier takes the podium Tuesday, he will be extending his record of SEC Media Days appearances to 23.

Georgia’s Mark Richt will be making his 15th visit when he appears Thursday, which will tie former Tennessee coach Phillip Fulmer for the second-most visits. Fulmer would have made 16 trips but sat out in 2004 after learning that lawyers who were suing the NCAA planned to subpoena him.

Spurrier, who turned 70 in April, coached Florida to six SEC titles from 1990 to 2001 and soon will be embarking on his 11th season at South Carolina. He has guided the Gamecocks to an 84-45 record, including three consecutive 11-2 seasons from 2011 to ’13.

Yeah, but that was then, in the somewhat misty past.  What about lately?

Is this Spurrier’s last hurrah?

Few can entertain the way South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier does at media days. The ‘Ol Ball Coach is always quick with a quip and never hesitates to needle his rivals. But after a somewhat disappointing 7-6 2014 season, there are questions to how much longer Spurrier will coach in Columbia.

Maybe he can change the subject to the Confederate flag.

Thanks, but I think I’ll wait for movie to show up on cable.

Meet Ran Henry, self-described “foremost authority on Coach Spurrier’s life”, and the author of… well…

the “first authorized biography to cover the iconic career of the modern era’s defining college football coach.” Except it’s not an authorized biography. That was an error on the publisher’s part, Henry says. “Definitive,” not “authorized,” is the term he uses.

Sounds like a real page turner.

Playing through on the back nine of a coaching career

This may be the quintessential Steve Spurrier troll of the universe:  giving an interview about this year’s edition of South Carolina football while playing a round of golf.

You’ve got to admire a guy who really doesn’t give a shit what anybody else thinks about him – and is more than willing to let us all know that.

Age ain’t nothin’ but a number.

Still, don’t you think Steve Spurrier would rather not have a public celebration today?
