Default Spurrier the Diplomat...

Watching coach's Tuesday pressed has me really wondering if some of today's business and political correctness, etc isn't making coach have to tone down his banter. I wonder if he's not being muzzled a bit.

For example weeks ago he complained about fans and students leaving early and today he made a point to say that he appreciates fans buying tickets...and he understood leaving in the 3rd quarter which is contrary to what he's said in the past. He said he thought the students should stay and sing the alma mater...but he understood fans leaving to beat the traffic, etc. Even said he did it...

He also toned down his own demeanor on the defense and spoke to the youth and how kids performed better in games and others in practice.

Just kind of an odd feeling that perhaps he's getting a little guidance to self edit his own negativity in some cases. Not a bad thing, just that I'm not sure I will enjoy a diplomatic, watered down version of coach Spurrier.

Thoughts?

Did you see the ron morris press conference last year bro? No one can shackle the HBC; he has FU money and has had it since about 1996.

Default Re: Spurrier the Diplomat...

It's not at all the first time that Spurrier has been at USC where he made some emotional comments after disappointing games in post-game pressers, only to have reversed or softened his stances later in the week after watching game film or cooling down from it. It's just that we haven't had many instances in the past 2-3 seasons where we have made him too angry or disappointed, so we are forgetting those past moments. Let's not freak out too much here...

Why should Spurrier get all upset just because a bunch of ill informed fans think the world is coming to an end. Spurrier said two weeks ago that he understood why fans left.

These fans doing all the complaining need to calm down.

And Frankly I am sick and tired of the Chief and his tough guy talk on the radio. He needs to check his mouth. That includes Coach Guge too. They don't know the Gamecock defense better than Coach Ward. Coach Deke has several top DL recruits lined up and fans need to stop bashing USC.

Let Spurrier be himself. His is a living Legend and i want him around as long as possible. Leave the other crap to someone else, let him run the football program as he sees fit and let it all out.

Could be he had time to settle down and gather himself after three days. I would imagine he said a lot of what he did after the game Saturday largely because of emotion and frustration.

Good grief. 3-1 13th in the nation and that is disgusting? Check your overzealous expectations at the door please. Unless of course you were being facitious.

Default Re: Spurrier the Diplomat...

I got the exact same feeling from his presser. It sounded as though he was asked to tone it down at the very least.
Not trying to read into what he said but did the "grateful" comment about Stoops jump out at anyone else?

Default Re: Spurrier the Diplomat...

An official document per usc was just released kissing the students asses just so they will stay the whole game. It doesn't take a rocket scientist in order to make the connection of why spurrier has eased up. Ray told him to ease up. Whats the point of making these changes if the coach is going to crack heads at the same time? Pure business is what it is.
