If he wins a national championship we should rename the state!

I am sure Ray will do something for Spurrier after he retires.

All this statue and field stuff is so forced.

Spurrier's a good coach but he hasn't won anything yet. It would seem really bush league to name a field after a coach who didn't at least win a National Title, multiple BCS bowls or multiple conference titles.

He's done so much for this school, I agree. But that's a huge honor and should be reserved.

He'll have to win a NC or two, to name the field after him. That's not something you want to change any time soon.

There's a lot more things we can do to show our appreciation for SOS than naming the same field a new coach would be coaching on.
I don't know about this "40 years or longer" thing. It sure wasn't called The Cockpit when I was in school 20 years ago. I don't even remember hearing it being referred to that until the last 10 years or so.

Even as Annual Statue/Naming Threads go this one is insane.

Every time I bring this up I get this response. I understand some of you like it, but the school doesn't endorse it and as long as you hold on to it there will never be the swamp, the horseshoe or between the hedges nickname the entire country recognizes.

All that said, definitely not time yet. He needs to win championships first.
I am pretty sure that in NCAA for the intro, the guy calls it the cockpit,that said it makes sense, a stadium is a battleground for football, a cockpit is literally the same thing, and sounds great.
