College Football Will Miss Steve Spurrier When He Retires

Steve Spurrier's annual appearance at SEC media days takes more influence from Don Rickles than it does Bear Bryant. Tuesday's session-opening appearance was no exception, as South Carolina's Head Ball Coach tacitly defended the Gamecocks' 7-6 finish in 2014 with a zinger at the expense of Tennessee and Arkansas.

TBT: 50 Years of Steve Spurrier Swagger

Coming off what many observers would label a disappointing 7-6 campaign, South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier made various comments this spring and winter that suggest the Head Ball Coach may ride off into the sunset sooner than later. The 70-year-old Spurrier made an off-the-cuff remark about coaching "two or three more years," which raised…

The preceding sentence probably reads similarly to a lede of "The sky was blue today," but perhaps it's not so obvious that Urban Meyer has the best quarterback situation in college football.
