I think Lawing is a wonderful coach but after going through a divorce myself, I know how distracting it can be. I would guess that the players and other coaches would notice the day to day changes and that could very well effect this team and the preparation for the up coming season. I wish him the best but I also changed jobs, city, and relationships for peace of mind. It works very well.

He coached and Clemson also and him and Spurrier are rumored to not be on the best terms. So if that's true i'm glad we didn't hire him.

Didn't you at one point this season say that you would rather have James Franklin as our coach than Steve Spurrier? Let me know if that is wrong.

If you had to pick one to coach our team going forward, would you choose Steve Spurrier or James Franklin?
No. I don't like James Franklin that much. You have the wrong person.

Glad we didn't get Rumph. Despite all the ridiculous talent they get year after year you never really see any dynamic pass rushers like we've been lucky enough to have the past few years.

So it was spurrier's fault. Not the coaches who didnt recruit the talent, or prepare the teams the way they should have been prepared, or it wasnt the players who were know for not giving 100% every game. It was spurrier?

So what about a team like Georgia which has been beaten by SPurrier terribly but is still in the top teams every year? Your theory is not only flawed its stupid. Ive even got friends who are clemson fans that say that is an idiotic statement.

You mean what you hold agaist him was the fact he did his job at UF? Seriously? When you are a National Championship contender you need to humiliate teams because that is how you get into the top 2 with a chance to play for a title. The harm you're talking about has been done by Richt, was done by Fulmer, ect. Steve Spurrier has given us the best teams in our history with a bright future still in front of us. If you haven't forgiven him yet you never will. Personally I forgave him at his press conference when we hired him because he became a Gamecock.

Well, good for you. People are allowed to have different opinions and like and dislike people for whatever reason. Forgive him for you feel is enough, and I will do the same. And as far as Fulmer and Richt, when they become coach here and win a championship I'll scratch them off the list. Too many people on here are far too concern with what the others on here think. A Gamecock fan who loves his team went to school at USC has chip on his shoulder about Spurrier, yet respects and appreciates what he is trying to do here without being a Steve Spurrier cheerleader, compliments him on a good hire and get's and gets bashed for it and the mods have to get involved. Sorry I'm not playing this game with y'all anymore. I'm not going to kiss Steve Spurrier, rear end with the rest of y'all, I say "good job" "bad job" as I see it. I'll start kissing his rear when he wins a championship.

Bro you can dislike him all you want, im sure thats a common feeling. But saying he set the program back is an idiotic statement. Pure and Simple. In fact, I dont think, NO I KNOW I have NEVER heard anyone say that before. In the history of coaching hires.

I guess one of the reasons that I love Spurrier so much now is that I admired him even when he was at Florida.

Sure, I absolutely hated losing to Florida because it was a L, but I have to admit there was something about Spurrier that always had me in awe. He was just a bad ass.

For some reason, he always (and still does) reminded me of Dale Earnhardt. I always really liked Dale even though I never really followed racing. It was just something about him that garnered my respect.

SOS RUTS for several reasons.

Apparently, like you, it made many of the opposing fans and our team go into the fetal position and give up at the first sign of something going against us in the game. At that point, it was all over but the final score. That feeling lasted from year to year.

I saw the same thing during the McGuire/Roche Era. Most teams knew they were beaten before the first tip. You could see it in their body language, in them watching our guys in pre game warmups. We went on a good burst of scoring and the other team would frequently give up.

Florida kept scoring because the second and third team players deserved quality playing time based on them working hard as part of the team, too. It helped those younger players develop faster for when the upperclassmen were gone. Playng hard, in a real game, against other teams, even in mop up time did more good than scrimmaging against your own.

What an insult for kids that don't play often to be sent out and told to take a knee. If that is all I got out of busting my butt all year, I'd say the heck with that! The kids getting to play and doing what they have spent so much time practicing to do made the entire team happier and more cohesive, a great morale boost.

Some opposing coach asked SOS one time why he kept scoring. He said, "Why should we stop? You (your team) aren't stopping."

Him running uo the score was a good thing for us and anyone else worth their salt, actually. Either quit and give up and whine and complain and blame others for the sorry state of your own program or grow up, take responsibilty for its failures and lack of competitiveness and take whatever (legal) steps to improve and fight back. Finally, that is what we have done.

Don't think SOS still wouldn't love to RUTS here at Carolina. We have not had an Offense yet able to do so. Most of our wins have been close ones, mostly defensively based. I would bet few Carolina fans would bemoan us beating teams by 30 or 40 points a game, scoring until the last whistle. Yet, I think those few who would are right here, on this forum. Pity.
