Re: Did the loss to TN make spurrier realize...
USC ran it more than they threw against Tennessee.
Want to know why USC lost the game?
Turnovers (USC had 2, UT had none) and field position (most drives in the first half started inside the USC 20 yard line) combined with poor execution (drops, miss blocks, and QB taking off too soon).
Spurrier knows he has a horse back there. He reads the stat sheets after the game. But he needs to call the game the way he sees fit. He even said after the game that he should've called more pass plays and I agree. He tried to hang on for dear life at the very end instead of being aggressive like he has for almost the entire season.
