As of now, we have two nicknames for the stadium, The Cockpit and/or Willy B.
I prefer The Cockpit myself. Willy B is just short for Williams-Brice, that's it.
I understand The Cockpit has been around since the mid 70's and has lost it's luster of the years for whatever reason, same will happen if we name the field after a coach that's approaching 70 years of age. What if his predecessor wins more SEC Championships and National titles than SOS in a shorter amount of time? Will we change the name of the field again to appeal to the next generation?
Spurrier would have to build us into a dynasty to deserve naming the field after him and we are not a dynasty by any stretch of the imagination. Not yet, anyway.
