Coach Spurrier has impacted & influenced more of us in this business than he will ever know. He will be missed and will always be the "HBC"

Thanks @SC_HBC Spurrier for all you've done for college football…and for me. Your impact on me changed the trajectory of my life.

Spurrier when a fire at Auburn destroyed 20 books: "The real tragedy was that 15 hadn't been colored yet."

Coach Spurrier did more for me, my family, our university, and the game of football than we will ever know. Forever indebted. #HBC

Spurrier is the reason I became a fan of college football. The game won't be the same without him. Thank you, Coach. pic.twitter.com/SXu6PI6851
