It’s no secret that Alabama coach Nick Saban and South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier are anything but the best of friends off the field. Although, it’s mainly Spurrier that will take most of the jabs, as he always does. So ESPN decided on Tuesday that, in preparation for the college football season, they would put the two on live television together on an episode of College Football Live, and Spurrier was at it again.
At one point in the show, the host asked Nick Saban how he sells playing time to recruits, since he’s always in the mix for some of the top players in the land. Well immediately after the question was posed to Saban, Spurrier shot out one of the greatest troll faces of all time, aimed directly at his colleague.

Steve Spurrier is truly a treasure to not only the game of college football, but the earth in general. When this man leaves the game, it will be one of the saddest days in history. Well, unless he opts to move into a television role, at which point he may only get better and better.
Just a few weeks ago, Spurrier took his latest shot at Saban, wondering why he hasn’t won more SEC championships, given all of the success that he has had in recruiting.
It’s likely that he was making this same face when he made those comments as well.
