Re: SOS: QB guru?
Spurrier helps QB's excel because his instinctive playcalling. He has a tremendous feel for the game. He can mentally prepare (with help from Mangus) the QB for whatever the defense is doing because he's a good play caller.
Sometimes the player just needs to handle their business. You could argue that not until Shaw/Thompson, no QB really got their head on straight for lack of a better term. I think if Thompson has a great year, it will say alot about Spurrier and his development of QB's. Take into consideration that the QB position has somewhat changed over the last 10 years and he did adapt to it.
