Default 12 years at Florida, 9th with the Gamecocks...

...will Spurrier stay with us longer than he did with the Gators ? I think he will because of the success and the fact it will be his last gig. If he wins the SEC and or the National Championship I think he will cut it shorter but who knows. I was just wondering how you guys felt....does he stay longer and why ?

Honestly, I think Steve has 3 left in him. This is going to be his best year to win a SEC championship for a while. There is a youth period coming for USC and I hope he can stick it out until these guy guys become Jr and Sr. If he can give us 5 more, I think he can win a championship in the last 2.

Default Re: 12 years at Florida, 9th with the Gamecocks...

Unless he wins a couple of championships (meaning at least the SEC), I'll be surprised if he stays as long here as he did at UF. If he were to stay here longer than he did his alma mater, the argument could be made (although I think unsuccessfully) his legacy will be as the head coach of USC, and I don't think he wants to undo his leacy as the coach at UF. Again, just my opinion.

I figure if he stays 12 he is not worried about stepping down before the 12 years are up. What would be the reason to do that ? He will either step down before or not worry about it and continue. The real point is will he coach as long or longer. I guess I could have covered all my bases but a tie is as good as not stepping down out of respect before the 12 years.

Spurrier will always be a Gator. I don't think undoing his legacy there concerns him. He looks like he's having fun, and appears to be in great shape for a 67 year old. I could see him staying another 4 years.

I don't like the wording. If he stays less than 12 seasons, I don't think his reason would be because of his respect for Florida.

That is what he promised and Coach Spurrier does not promise something he will not keep. So he should be here for another 4 or 5 years.

Again he will not willingly break that promise but, if we win an SEC and or a National Title this year, I wouldn't be mad with him if he decided to leave on a good note.

As rational as that sounds, Spurrier is not a rational man, and he may coach here until the day he dies. We will never know until we know.

4 years sounds a/b right. And I don't see how you could be mad if he got us a title and rode off into the sunset (even an SEC title). That would complete his mission. But in the absence of a title this year, I'd like to see him keep that promise to Mitch. And at that point, I think it'll be time for him to go anyways. Not many coaches stay near their peak into their 70's, not even the greats.

How many more years will it realistically take to surpass Bryant? I think he gives it a serious shot.

He said at Media Days he'd be around b/w 9-13 years total... job isn't stressful.

Default Re: 12 years at Florida, 9th with the Gamecocks...

kinda off topic but kinda on....i think he will stay here longer than he was at UF, which absolutely shocks me, like if you would have told me this when he was hired I wouldnt have believed you.....but here is my reasoning for my thoughts:

while Spurrier will always be a Gator (and who can blame him), i think there will always be some part of him that will always be more proud of what he accomplished here than at UF, obv he did WAY more at UF but the whole nation wasnt doubting his decision to go to UF, they were when he came to us and i know he wants to win one just to prove them wrong

If he leave before 12 I don't think it would have anything to do with Florida, unless they offer him his old job back.

He will be here longer but I don't think he will mean it as disrespectful to his alma mater in any way. It's just a timing thing.

I don't think he will stay more than 12 years, but I also don't think it will have anything to do with loyalty to UF.

As long as SOS stays healthy, and the first's are still attainable...... I believe 3 years or more is almost a certainty....

I think he would want the SEC wins record if he got close and we're still at a high level. HBC loves records, especially SEC records and topping The Bear would be sweet for Spurrier.

He wanted us to be this good 3 years ago and his timeline got stalled a few years than he expected so I think he stays a little longer to really cement us as an elite program for the next coach.
