Heard on the radio on my drive in to work this morning a report from the Nashville Tennessean from a source "close to the situation" that next week, Steve Spurrier has "agreed in principle" to take over at South Carolina for Lou Holtz and will announce plans to come out of retirement early next week. The only snag is if Lou has a change of heart and chooses not to retire.

I've got mixed feelings about this. On one end, I think Lou's a classy coach who worked hard to try to raise the national profile of the team, but on the other end at times he's seemed dazed and confused, has had a tough time both coaching and caring for his wife while she was going through therapy for cancer, and his age was used as a selling point by other schools to convince recruits not to come to South Carolina. On the other hand, I've never been a fan of Spurrier and, quite frankly, despised what I saw of his style when he was at Florida...but you can't argue with the results.

One thing looks for certain though - Spurrier is back in the SEC.


South Carolina - too small to be its own country, too big to be a mental asylum.

Yup, totally expected after what happened with our school's president. Urban Meyer was always coming here and Spurrier never had a chance. We can only hope Meyer will be as good.

GP...The Tampa Bay Bandits and the Washington Redskins are the only teams he did not have to worry about people liking him. He did, however, successfully overcome his personality and class deficiencies at Duke and Florida where he took perennial losers and made them competitive winners at Duke (and they have to read there) and perennial champs at FL. I can't stand the dude, but the wife (big Auburn fan and an alum) who truly hates him the way only and SEC fan can hate Spurrier was openly expressing a desire to have Spurrier come to Auburn prior to the beginning of this season.

The point is that Spurrier wins people over by winning ball games. He leaves feelings hurt bad enough that the school president of FL is probably going to need bodyguards due to his poor judgement in trying to sweat Spurrier on returning to FL.

If he really does sign on the dotted line for USC (the real USC) the SEC will see a new recruiting power drawing quarterbacks and other prime players from Georgia and Florida, and there will be a new power rising in the SEC over the next couple of years.

Holtz has been competitive at times, but it appears he is getting old. Maybe he just needs a change of scenery, or maybe he needs an analyst jon to stay active.

Anyway, congrats to all you 'cocks out there, things are getting more interesting in the NCAA's toughest conference.

More like Spurrier didn't want to go back to Florida. If he had wanted that job, he could've had it. The fans would've revolted if the President and AD had turned Visormort down.

So So. Carolina got themselves one of the biggest cocks in football to coach the 'Cocks....poetic justice.




Sorry couldn't resist.  Laugh out loud

Bullshit MD-90.

Our prez said every coach needs to go through the interview process, Spurrier being the arrogant man he is, said F that (as he should of). Spurrier should have had his job without any process, but was not the case.

C'mon, look at what Spurrier was saying after Zook was fired. He wanted to come back. Then on espn radio he made the comment about Bernie saying he did not meet him (when in fact he did); "Well, Jeremy knows me and knows what I can do and the president knows who I am . . . or maybe he doesn't," Spurrier said. "I guess he doesn't remember meeting me."

So right off the bat there was bad blood.

Why hasn't there been a revolt?? Because the school is divided on whether or not they wanted him back or not. Looks like the latter got its way and now we are gonna have to face him every year. VERY NICE.

I am glad the Gators will have to face him every year if/when he signs w/ the Cocks. However I think the Gators will tear them up on their first meet. I cant wait for the day when Spurrier and the Cocks go to The Swamp and beat the piss out of the Gators!

I can't wait for the day UM loses to two unranked opponents in a row.

WELL SHIT, HOW DO YOU LIKE THAT?!?!!?


I've heard talk about UM playing Florida in a bowl game to end the season. That will be fun =)

I'm sure UM won't have any fans left by that time, it seems the only way they can keep the stadium half full is too be undefeated.

Our school newspaper today (Machen is our president):



Oh and thanks for being so kind that we will beat them his first year. I wish everyone here had that sentiment.
