Default The 14 best Spurrier quotes of all time...

Here

Quote:
This season

On South Carolina's 52-7 win over the Razorbacks: "I do feel badly for Arkansas. That's no fun getting your butt beat at home, homecoming and all that."

On the Gamecocks' matchup at Tennessee "Will be the 14th time I've coached in Neyland Stadium. ... I've coached there more than some of their head coaches."

On his age: "The Pope is 77 years old and he's in charge of a billion people. All I have to do is put 11 on the field."

Classic Spurrier

Georgia

On playing the Dawgs early: "I don't know. I sort of always liked playing them that second game because you could always count on them having two or three key players suspended."

On Georgia recruiting: "Why is it that during recruiting season they sign all the great players, but when it comes time to play the game, we have all the great players? I don't understand that. What happens to them?"

Tennessee

On the Vols missing out on the Sugar Bowl during his Florida years: "You can't spell Citrus without U-T."

On Peyton Manning: "I know why Peyton came back for his senior year. He wanted to be a three-time star of the Citrus Bowl."

Alabama

On recruiting: "In 12 years at Florida, I don't think we ever signed a kid from the state of Alabama ... Of course, we found out later that the scholarships they were giving out at Alabama were worth a whole lot more than ours."

Florida State

On scandal in Tallahassee: "You know what FSU stands for, don't you? Free Shoes University."

On illegal hits against Danny Wuerffel: "He's like a New Testament person. He gets slapped up side the face, and turns the other cheek and says, 'Lord, forgive them for they know not what they're doing.' I'm probably more of an Old Testament guy. You spear our guy in the earhole, we think we're supposed to spear you in the earhole. That's kind of where we're a little different."

Auburn

On a fire at the football dorm that destroyed 20 books: "But the real tragedy was that 15 hadn't been colored yet."

Clemson

On the Death Valley nickname: "Most of our guys have never been to Death Valley. (LSU's stadium) is the Death Valley, isn't it? Or is there another one? There's two of them. That's right. There's two Death Valleys."

On the state of the South Carolina program (widely attributed, but probably not an original): "We aren't LSU and we aren't Alabama. But we sure ain't Clemson."

On Dabo Swinney's anger over the above quote: "I said, ‘Well, what do you want me to do? I didn't say it.' Smart people don't believe everything they read, and they don't believe hearsay. ... I guess Dabo believed it."
Move to smack if need be. I'm looking at it more as "history..."

The best one by far is the quote about Auburn and the coloring books.

Default Re: The 14 best Spurrier quotes of all time...

Got to add a few to UGA,

Spurrier asked if the Gators would beat Georgia replied, "Is Ray Goff still coaching there?"

When he scored 50 in Athens, ""They didn't seem to be mad about it. They only had about 5,000 left in the stadium."

And he can pick on himself too,

Fan on call in show:
"Coach, I live in Tallahassee. Are we going to beat FSU this year? It is hard to live here when FSU is beating us"

Spurrier:

"Maybe you should think of moving to Georgia"

Spurrier was the starting QB for the TB Bucs in their 1st (and winless) season. The head coach (and also part owner) of the Bucs was of course John McKay...and might top SOS for coach with the funniest quotes...who besides signing local favorite Steve Spurrier had also signed his son J.J. McKay a decent WR from Southern Cal. One day McKay asked : "Why aren't you throwing to J.J. more often?"

Spurrier replied "Because he's the worst reciever on the team".

Another...

after B. Bowden was found to have told Federal investigators several falsehoods and when confronted under oath, he weaseled his way around it. The HBC said "People will say a lot of bad things about me but one thing they will never say is: that I lied to the Feds!"

A close friend was, in the 90s, pres. of the Gator boosters and he told me this one. During recruiting season, a 5 star safety had acted like a jerk during his visit capped off by intentionally wearing an FSU t-shirt into Spurriers office (the guy was rumored to be a verbal to the Noles but had told the coaches he was interested in UF). SOS said little but was not happy about that foolishness. Later, at the 11th hour, the kid had a change of heart and called an Asst. coach begging for another chance and promised to sign with the Gators. The coach called Spurrier and talked for a good 5-10 minutes to convince SOS that the kid was worth it and pleaded with him to give him a shot. There was silence on the phone for a while and then the HBC said:

"Tell him to go be a f#$$%#in Nole!" and hung up.

Don't see how Spurrier is talking smack to Auburn. He hasn't beaten them in over a decade.

If you do a little research....like 10 sec.s worth...youd find that quote was from a Gator booster meeting from the 90s when Auburn was led by that infamous cheater Pat Dye. Guess its easier to take a shot at coach than do a quick google?

Kuhn, good job. Some guys have to work at it, and some come by it naturally. Those who fall into the latter category don't 'do' research. Beneath their pay grade, I suppose. LOL.

Yep, was going to say the same thing ... it's funny that they give him credit for a quote that he didn't even say and that the VERY NEXT LINE references being incorrect. Congrats author, you just called yourself an idiot.
