Default Article: Spurrier Defies Age on Recruiting Trail

Perhaps a little bit of an allusion to Pelini's negative recruiting?

"“We don’t run into much of any negative recruiting around here as SEC coaches,” Spurrier said. “We were involved with a player who was being recruited by a Big Ten school. They got negative a little bit with ‘There’s a lot of crime in Columbia, the big city. They don’t graduate their players,’ which was completely untrue. They searched for a little bit of everything but the player came with us anyways.”

A most excellent read, thanks!!! What's most exciting is he used the opportunity to speak to Atlanta area moms, dads and sons about why they might want to consider coming to Columbia and playing for him. Now he needs the Charlotte Observer to do a similar article, and the St. Pete Times for that matter ;)

Kinda obvious and not surprising. He still thinks he had the better team....probably hates USC more than any SEC team.

I love the job our coaches have done in game situations, coaching up our players and recruiting. That is a pretty sweet trifecta!

I thought Pelini's attack involved an allegation we didn't have enough scholarships to give one to McClain due to Hyman's NCAA sanction (82 vs. 85). I bet it was Wisconsin. Big Ten is pretty negative toward the SEC in general. They cannot beat us on the field so they try to be slime-balls and drag us through the mud with a bunch of false, stereotyping.
