Spurrier Speaks Up

Although we have dished Urban Meyer for being a liar and for declaring Florida was a "broken program", we still enjoy hearing from Steve Spurrier. Not just a Gator coach who gave us a national title, Steve Spurrier played his heart out for the Gators, winning a Heisman Trophy in the process. We all remember the pounding he gave Georgia in 1995, then his reply after the game stating " "We knew coming in nobody had scored 50 against them here, so that's what we wanted to do. This may be the only time in our lifetime that Florida plays here, so we wanted to make it memorable for the Gators."

Times haven't changed much and Spurrier is still disrespecting those Dawgs. His thoughts on the game against Georgia moving from the second to the sixth week of the season:
"I don't know. I sort of always liked playing them that second game because you could always count on them having two or three key players suspended."
How about Nick Saban's success at Alabama?
"He's got a nice little gig going, a little bit like (John) Calipari. He tells guys, 'Hey, three years from now, you're going to be a first-round pick and go.' If he wants to be the greatest coach or one of the greatest coaches in college football, to me, he has to go somewhere besides Alabama and win, because they've always won there at Alabama."
And who does Spurrier think is the best coach in the SEC?
"I think it's Saban. He's considered the best. Les Miles is considered one of the best, when you look at number of wins. I believe you're as good as your record. You are whatever your record is. Don't give me any excuses or that you can't win at this place."
