South Carolina's Steve Spurrier, 69, says he's not done winning.

"COLUMBIA - Steve Spurrier believes the South Carolina Gamecocks have more success ahead, even without recent No. 1 NFL draft pick Jadeveon Clowney.

The 69-year-old Spurrier acknowledged he wasn't sure how long he'd coach South Carolina when he returned to college football in November 2004. Instead, Spurrier's prepping for his 10th season while overseeing the greatest run in Gamecocks history.

Spurrier is the school's all-time leader in coaching victories. He's won the program's lone Southeastern Conference Eastern Division title in 2010 and his teams have gone 42-11 the past four years, ranking only behind SEC powerhouses LSU and Alabama for most wins in that stretch.

"Age isn't that big a deal, it's more about your health," Spurrier said. "I read something that said Hillary (Clinton) would be 69 if she won the election. So it's about how you feel and I feel pretty good."

Spurrier's also confident that his team is still on the rise, despite defensive end Clowney foregoing his senior season for the Houston Texans.

"I don't know why people think this is the end of something," Spurrier said. "We've got a team that has a chance to be OK.""

Really happy to hear his enthusiasm about continuing to coach and win!!!

On a side note, if Hillary does not win the election, what would her age be? LOL

Man..who would of thought as a long time Gamecock fan that Steve Spurrier would be the all-time winningest coach in school history. If you were to say that back when Lou was the coach I'd probably fall out of my chair laughing.

Probably, but we still have another 3 months to go until kick off, and quite frankly I'm bored.

I think the perfect thing would be to get a couple more 10+ seasons, build an elite recruiting class or two, and sail off into the sunset with a National Championship, setting USC up to get an elite coach.

Gonna be hard to hire an elite coach after the entire city of Columbia burns down.

:lol: Was thinking the same thing. If people think 5 points is out of control with drunk kids, just wait until that day.

I hope he stays longer than he was at UF.

unfortunately I think we slip back a bit this year....I hope I'm wrong.

Spurrier knows he should have won the SEC last year. His team at season's end was better than the conference winner. Spurrier dang near ended up in the national championship game. Heck no he aint leaving yet.

I remember that day. Walking back to the house on Greene st and my buddy yelling outside "we got spurrier!". Went inside and watched it. And started drinking

I think this year will tell a lot in terms of how long Spurrier is going to stay here. He has a bunch of pocket passers on his roster now and if the offense bogs down and we start struggling, I don't think he hangs around much longer.
