Default Question...since Spurrier didn't tell the other

FSU assistant Scott not to take the South Carolina job...well we got stuck. My question is, does anyone remember who the other coaches were in line at the time and how they ended up? What kind of team would we have had then if one of the others had gotten the job. We were probably turned down by a few but I don't remember. I know some of you know this.

This is pretty much an impossible question to answer. How the heck is anyone suppose to have a definite answer or even remotely ideal opinion on how this team would've turned out had Spurrier not taken the job and another candidate did?!

That's like saying, hey guys...if George Washington wasn't the first president, what would've been different now?

We wouldn't be winning as much if that is what your asking. Without Spurrier, there would have been no Lattimore, Gilmore, Shaw, Clowney or even a top 10 ranking.

Spurrier brought with him a name recruits recognized and the coaching skills to back it up.

Default Re: Question...since Spurrier didn't tell the other

i think he was just asking who were the other coaching candidates other than brad scott when he got hired if im not mistaken. im not sure what spurrier would have had to do with it since he was at florida.
my memory isnt good enough to know any other candidates.

I wasn't being serious...you have some real problems....no wonder you spend so much time on here. I know you must be a pure delight (sarcasm) in real life. Hey maybe that's the problem...no real life.

Default Re: Question...since Spurrier didn't tell the other

I thought the others were basically unbased rumors and part of the reason Lou was leaving when he did was because he knew Spurrier would take over...I remember reading this somewhere awhile ago...I think it was one of Lou's books.

Default Re: Question...since Spurrier didn't tell the other

if we are talking about after sparky woods got fired the finalists according to a sun sentinel article were sc defensive coordinator miles aldridge, former pitt coach and current espn analyst mike gottfried, and brad scott. gottfried's on the fbs level ended up with mediocre records though i like him as an analyst. cant really tell you how we would have looked. seemed like a paltry selection other than scott, which may have been because scott was the guy we were after all along.

scott was a hot name at the time with fsu being in the top 4 every season, im not sure there was a bigger name on our radar.

I just answered one of my own questions...

http://articles.sun-sentinel.com/199...ckson-carolina

Speculation is swirling in South Carolina that school officials will pursue Erickson as their new coach.

Seems like I remember the guy from Air Force (was it Fisher Deberry?) was a candidate, along with the before mentioned Gottfried.

Seems like I also remember when Bobby Bowden was asked for a recommendation for a coach off of his staff, he tossed Fat Brad out there instead of recommending Mark Richt.

Who can forget Scott's teary-eyed, voice-quivering press conference in which he promised to always support the current Gamecock players. A day or two later, he drove a University vehicle, stole the South Carolina recruiting book, and took those up to Clemson and went to work for Bowden.

All i know is, if Mike leach had taken the job, we'd have 10 national titles in 9 years.

This entire post makes no sense anyways because Spurrier told Richt not to take the Georgia job and he did anyways. Even is Spurrier told Scott not to take the SC job, he would have anyways.
