In news that shouldn’t be all that shocking, South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier is definitely winning the quote contest as the college football season rapidly approaches. While he has some hot takes on a lot of subjects, this year it seems as if he’s set his sights on taking the most shots at Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide, for some reason or another.
Well he’s at it again, this time taking another jab at Saban and Alabama not winning the SEC as many times as they should.
When asked in a Q&A by GoGamecocks.com about whether or not there’s more to life than winning the SEC, Spurrier used his Florida teams as an example, and then tosses the subtle shot at Saban and Alabama in there.
Well, my last year at Florida, we did not win the SEC. We had a heck of a team in 2001, we won the state championship, beat FSU, won the Orange Bowl and finished No. 3 in the nation, and we were disappointed because our expectations obviously were to win the SEC, which we did seven of the 12. So it’s different. Your expectations and what you achieve are different at every school. Every school is different. For example, at Alabama, if I had had five No. 1 recruiting classes in the last six years like Alabama, I would say, ‘Fellas we are going to mess up if we lose a game, because we’ve got the best players in college football.
We’re quickly getting to the point where we can only beg to see South Carolina against Alabama in the SEC Championship Game this December, because the quotes Spurrier has been providing this offseason alone are enough for the perfect storyline heading into Atlanta.
