Default Spurrier Presser

I've never heard Spurrier sound the way he did.
Nobody had the balls toask him about the future of the 3-4.
He says Mike Davis will be available vs ECU so I suspect he had a talk with Davis. I think Spurrier expects to see Davis participate.
There will be changes on the OL.
D Williams will get some ECU carries.
Spurrier not happy with special teams.

When you say he's never sounded that way, how did he sound?

Go figure. I know we don't have a return game, but at least Hull punted well, and Ard had a good game on kickoffs. Fry missed the FG, but let's face it, he doesn't have the leg for 45+ consistently right now.

If anything they played better than since we had Rychleski, aside from Ace's returns.

They aren't going to win us games like they do for some teams, but he picks now to get mad about it?

Special teams - our return game on kick offs is horrible. Bad blocking and our return guy does not hit the hole and go (if there is a hole). Punt returns - different because when you face a good punter, fair catches are common. Our kick coverage needs to get better as well.

I know, huh? Here we go again. We hear and see this crap every year about our Special teams. The HBC always says we need to get the starters out there on ST's, but we don't as far as I know. Not enough to make a difference, anyway. I honestly thought ST's would be straightened out this year. SMDH.

I also thought J. Robinson was a great ST's coach, but I think the talent he had at LSU made his coaching look better than it is. Time will tell, but the clock is ticking. I never realized it took years to turn around ST's, especially with the talent we have. I guess you learn something new everyday...

Ace Sanders was a 2012 first team All-Southeastern Conference selection as a kick returner and was named the SEC Special Teams Player of the Year. He was also named the 2013 Outback Bowl MVP partly because of a 63 yard punt return TD.

He will be beginning his second NFL season this weekend so its been less than two years since he played for Carolina.

I thought it was an encouraging press conference, honestly. It was the kind of stuff you'd want to hear after a bad loss.

I like the changes they're making to the way we practice. I like that Davis will be available but that David Williams is still in the discussion. I like that they'll tinker with the offensive line a bit. I like that Spurrier and the coaching staff are pissed about the way we played on Thursday but also don't want to let it ruin the entire season. Overall it seemed like a pretty fair and balanced way of looking at things. It's natural to want the players and coaches to be upset after what happened, but I'd rather them not be so upset that it hampers their ability to move on and improve.

Seems like normal Spurrier to me. Maybe a little tired. But just saying "wait and see." Practice a bit more intense. Not happy with 3rd down D. Thinks D and run game go hand in hand keeping other team off field

I'm still confused as to why Williams didn't play. He must not be that good if he didn't play even with our #1 out.

I'm excited to see him, but to have Carson in there running over Williams makes me wonder why.
