You can always count on two coaches in the sports world to give A+ interviews: Gregg Popovich and Steve Spurrier. When either of them are in front of a mic, it’s must-see TV. No matter how you view the Gamecocks, you gotta love Spurrier.
Today, it was the Ol’ Ball Coach’s turn to step into the spotlight once again, this time at SEC Media Days. He did not disappoint and provided us with some top notch entertainment. He wasted no time in discussing how terrible his team was last season. He definitely wasn’t going to hold back at taking some shots at some of the other SEC schools.
Spurrier: “We were 7-6. Same as Tennessee, same as Arkansas. I think they’re sorta celebratin’ big seasons last year."

Knowing that he doesn’t have a clear-cut number one QB, he has no qualms about going with the two-QB system.
Spurrier on his QB situation: "I can win with two. There's nothing in the rulebook that says you have to only play one."

There was no hesitation at his thoughts on the Crimi-Noles down south regarding hitting females at bars.
Spurrier: "I've always had a rule at South Carolina, if you ever hit a girl you're finished. We've lost two."

At the ripe age of 70, it doesn’t look like he plans on retiring anytime soon.
Steve Spurrier: "People ask, 'Why are you still coaching?' I forgot to get fired and I'm not going to cheat."

"That retirement thing… I don’t think I’d be very good at that." -Steve Spurrier

He’s also hoping to start a new futures bet. I have a feeling he’s dabbled in the gambling realm before.
Spurrier: "I wish Danny Sheridan would do odds on how long every SEC coach would be at school next 4 years. It would be fun to bet on"
