Default Q&A with Steve Spurrier

Q&A with Steve Spurrier: ‘A lot to brag about’
In the next seven months, Steve Spurrier will coach his 10th season at South Carolina, his 30th as a coach and turn 70 years old.

Spurrier sat down with The State for a wide-ranging interview that includes what he has accomplished with the Gamecocks, what he hasn’t yet and what the future might hold for the Head Ball Coach.

Nice snag! Points!

There is a lot of wisdom in those comments if people are willing to absorb it. Steve Spurrier gets college football much more than anyone I know of.

His comments on Jadeveon are spot on.

Love that he's always pumping up paying players. Regardless of your position, it certainly helps recruiting.

Spurrier has been almost a miracle worker since taking over at USC. If he manages to lead this team to the top of the SEC this season, it may prove to be his best coaching job yet.

Good article, thanks for posting, and I like a lot of what Spurrier said, but:

I don't like the bit about it being OK that we haven't won the SEC. All the accomplishments of the last 3 years have simply given us hope that we are very close to making it back to Atlanta and, hopefully, winning the SEC Championship.

If we do not win the SEC Championship while Spurrier is here, it will have all been for nothing. He came here to win the SEC Championship.

Nothing? We had never even had 11 wins before and we just did it 3 times in a row. We are a highly ranked, nationally respected team who is a contender now. Even if we don't win the SEC during his tenure, he has laid some excellent groundwork to build upon with our next hire.

Q: What are your impressions of this year’s team?
A: We get to watch some of the (summer) workouts now, and I was down there and guys were running around all over the place, nobody was sitting down. I said to (strength coach) Joe Connolly, ‘We’ve got a pretty good bunch of guys don’t we?’ He said, ‘Coach, attitude wise, this is, by far, the best group of guys since I have been here.’ It used to be voluntary in the summers. We had a starter last year who said, ‘Coach, it’s voluntary isn’t it? I just couldn’t make it yesterday.’ You can’t punish them. Now you can run them or do something. He said, ‘There are no ego guys.’ We don’t have any big stars. I think they are going to gel together pretty well, but what that means, nobody knows until we start playing. It is a group of players with wonderful attitudes.

That's true.

BUt.

We specifically hired Spurrier, and Spurrier specifically came here to win the SEC Championship.

Exactly! I too did not like his comment in the article. It struck me as very odd for him to say that. You hope he hasn't lost that fire, which you do worry about when a coach gets older. I mean beating Clemson five years in a row is great, winning bowl games, finishing in the top ten three years in a row, that's all great things our program has done. That being said, the job is far from done. It's time to take it to the next level, and that's winning a championship. I still can't fathom why he said that.

We hired Spurrier. He came in and said "our goal every year is to win the SEC championship". He set that goal. He's not changing that goal- he's just stating that you can have a really good season without winning the SEC and that they have other goals too.

No, he's saying that it's OK that we haven't won the SEC Championship. It's not OK. Sure, there has been an IMPROVEMENT, and we have been COMPETITIVE, but we've only made it to Atlanta once, and it's specifically because we can't win big games on the road. Hell, the schedule has sort of favored us the last couple of years and we still couldn't get the job done.

I'm I happy with 11 wins the last 3 years and beating clem5on five years in a row? Yes. But, when you beat teams that end up playing in Atlanta(Georgia, Missouri), because they ran the table, it shows you how far we still have to go.

Let me get to the crux of what I'm saying here: We better damn beat Auburn on the road this year.

Default Re: Q&A with Steve Spurrier

I take it as him saying we can have a good year if we don't win the national title. We can have a good year if we don't win the SEC. That's what has happened the last few years. As fans we consider them good years, just not the ultimate.

If we went 13-1, won the SEC and the national title, but lost to Clemson, I'm not sure that's the ultimate either.

There's a lot of ways to measure great seasons.
