Team of the decade? ROTFL. The #1 priority to ensure that is to bribe the people who decide who makes it to the playoffs. College football and politics: a tradition like no other.
Spurrier beat Saban with Stephen Garcia. Saban is not God. Rather be lucky than good.
Spurrier recorded 12 late hits in that game that were not called and showed it to the Sugar Bowl refs. Thus, 52-20.
They look quite solid at the receiver/TE position next year. They should do well if they can find RBs who can block and catch out of the backfield.
With the same talent, Spurrier was better than both Saban and Smart. National championships are still based on politics, whether four teams or two. Alabama won the NC in 1992, barely beating FL in AL. Spurriers third team was probably the 2nd best in the country on a neutral field by year end ... and that teaam was 2 years off of probation. Who is GAs instate rival? Tech? ROTFL. Spurrier had FSU and the U.
Rattlers career stats are good, very solid. Riley is a great recruiter and apparently found someone better in Wallace.
UC did not belong there. They are following the Miami model of creampuff scheduling. The more things change, the more they remain the same.
What about the almighty Peach Bowl does the writer not understand?
Clemson won once on a play that should be illegal.
Their big win was beating ND, who did not belong last year. College football is still a joke. Teams still get rewarded for playing cream puff schedules. The Miami model is alive and well.
Gerri Spurrier echoed these sentiments many years ago. Spurrier made SEC football much more exciting.
The headline is comical. I would trust Spurriers rating for most QBs over any recruiting service. Alshon Jeffery was a 4 star recruit in a year when only 3 WRs, all SEC commits, were 5 stars. Alshon went on to shred highly rated DBs like Dre Kirkpatrick to shreds. He also recruited Connor Mitch, who broke NC QB state records held by Chris Leak.
Oh please. If Bruce goes down like JT went down, what will the AL offense look like?
I do not get the JT hype. Bama was very lucky to beat Auburn and it seems GA actually took them lightly as a result. It just did not seem to be their night with that Bryce fumble they did not recover etc.
Why didn't UF show Kelly the magic? Did Muschamp, McIlwain and Mullin (sounds like a law firm) break their budget?
I'm sorry, but GA hasn't don't much yet. That may change next week, but Muschamp probably helped to boost the GA defense. The Swamp is like a kitchen. If you can't take the heat ... Spurrier was a rare breed who could take the heat. I don't know anything about Napier but Louisiana ain't that hot.
But he's done something at the college level. What has Gruden done?
The rise of Dabo prevented a Spurrier dynasty. Spurrier was really unlucky with timing at jobs. He was at UF during the state's football dominance and at SC with Clemson resurgence. Plus GA always had an easier OOD schedule.
Urban didn't win much without Tebow at UF. His first NC was largely due to Strong and Zook's recruits.
Too say Spurrier set the bar high is an understatement. Their dominance at The Swamp during his tenure was unreal. They would likely have been even better if FSU and Miami weren't great too for most of that time. But they gave Spurrier time to find the right assistants like Stoops etc. I think its silly to fire a DC and then a coach a few weeks later during the season. Give him time to find the right guy. The defense underachieved the last two years.
The talent is there for FL to win if their defense mans up and tackles well. GA for the most part has faced offensive lightweights.
I remember when Spurrier quipped about the Auburn jocks' library burning down: The real shame is that not all of the books had been colored. I actually heard a mention of it on NYC sports talk radio back in the day and they rarely covered college football. His wife, Gerri, also hinted at it just being an act. She said he had a lot of respect for coaches like Fulmer. I think he just wanted to attract more attention to the sport with his antics like Ali did for boxing. It worked.
The videos are about 10 seconds in total. It was very stupid of him, but it might not be anything else given he appeared inebriated. I'm not his biggest fan by any stretch, but he's the owner of that establishment, which probably led to him letting down his guard in public. Plus, he just lost to the Bengals.
This is a silly article. They were lucky to beat FL a few weeks ago and FL lost to a Kentucky team with a one-dimensional offense. All you need is a rain deluge and a good running game to beat anyone in the south. Saban is not God. He's just lucky he hasn't faced any consistently solid divisional coaches since ... forever.
