Default A bit of trivia people might find interesting regarding Spurrier

We all know he's getting up there in the years. He will turn 69 come April to be exact. Now for the trivia...

The oldest coach to ever win a National Championship was Bobby Bowden in 1999 at, you guessed it, 69. It'd be super sweet poetry for Spurrier to match that this upcoming season. Plus 69 makes most people giggle.

We know spurrier is all about records and firsts, maybe he waits until he's 70? Maybe he's just been biding his time to be the oldest coach to ever win one. That'd be a sick joke.

He will still be lifting and sharp as a samurai sword at 70. Bank on it.

That's a common misconception. Japanese steel wasn't the greatest nor the sharpest. It's actually a pretty tame weapon compared to some of the exceptional ones used throughout Europe. Let's say he will be as sharp as a Damascus sword instead lol

The beauty of the Katana is not in how sharp it was but in the physics behind the curve of the blade. It is the ultimate slicing sword as the weight and shape continues to help you throughout the entire slicing motion even after it has made contact with whatever it is you are slicing through. European swords relied more on the strength of the wielder to carry the blade through their targets, meaning the person using it had to exert more energy to get a similar effect.

That being said, crucible steel was certainly impressive and ANY sword made out of that had superior strength and flexibility. Some swords were designed more for thrusting, so when someone says "the best sword" I think it really depends on what you are facing. Chain mail holds up pretty poorly against a good thrusting sword, but it actually holds its own against a pure slicing weapon. In general, if you combine all the parts of a sword together and what it is you want to accomplish, the katana is pretty hard to beat, but again it is situational and I could easily say certain swords, if made out of a certain material, would be as good of a choice.

It could happen but he needs to get serious about special teams. I'd love to see Coach coach special teams. He'd do fantastic!
