South Carolina Gamecocks
Alabama Crimson Tide
It is an age old question that football fans have considered throughout time. Could the best college football team defeat the worst NFL team? The question has been posed on countless occasions, with fans and media members alike wondering what would happen if some of the greatest college football teams in recent memory, including squads from the Miami Hurricanes, LSU Tigers, Nebraska Cornhuskers, USC Trojans and Alabama Crimson Tide could have beaten NFL teams who suffered through horrendous seasons, such as the Miami Dolphins, Detroit Lions, Indianapolis Colts and Cleveland Browns.
While we will never get to see how this scenario would play out, not even in an exhibition game, it has not stopped people from play the “what if” game.
That includes South Carolina Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier and Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll.
I should explain that these two have not challenged each other. We will not see Connor Shaw and the Gamecocks against Marshawn Lynch and the Seahawks. It ...

While Swinney was wrong last year after responding negatively...
Everything I stated about how much of a joke Pete Carroll’s comments about the Seahawks could be 8-0 were further solidified today; by none other then Tom Brady. When asked about his team’s 5-3 result there were no ifs and or butts, it was the proper answer and explanation all winning players provide. Not dreaming unrealistic career .500 records like Petey boy.Here’s what Brady...
Here we go again. All throughout last year’s college basketball season, we had to hear about how Kentucky was such a great team that they could probably beat some of the NBA’s weakest teams. Now, South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier is raising a similar discussion with Alabama.
During an appearance on The Dan Patrick Show on Wednesday, Spurrier said he believes Alabama could...
University of South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier believes the University of Alabama football team is good enough to compete in the NFL.
Now Spurrier did coach in the NFL back in the late 90′s, so he has some what of an idea of what it takes to win in the pros.
“Alabama, gosh, they look like they could beat a couple of those NFL teams that I’ve watched on Sundays,” Spurrier...
As a lifelong Seahawks fan, that question is something I have pondered over and over again. The answer I come up with is this: I just do not know, but it is something that must be figured out in order for them to make the leap from pretender to contender. To be considered a legitimate contender, it simply must happen. No team can win a Super Bowl, let alone a few playoff games...
South Carolina Head Coach Steve Spurrier said on the Dan Patrick Show that he thought Alabama could compete in the NFL with some of the weaker teams.“Alabama, gosh, they look like they could beat a couple of those NFL teams that I’ve watched on Sundays,” Spurrier said. “I think a lot of the oddsmakers out there, that usually know what’s going on, I’d guess Alabama would...
As a dominant college football program, you aren’t officially a dynasty until people starting taking odds on whether or not you could beat the worst teams in the NFL. Well, it appears that the Alabama Crimson Tide have reached that status.

Steve Spurrier has never had a filter when it came to speaking out about any topic in football. I believe that the old ball coach has topped anything that he has ever stated in his career.Spurrier must be thinking of the lack of talent that he coached at Washington when he was in the NFL.Anyone that thinks that young boys playing against developed grown men could work, is crazy...

The Jacksonville Jaguars are a bad football team They’re 1-6. On a points-per-game basis, they have the worst offense in the NFL blistering the scoreboard to an average of 14.7/game. Their defense, while better, is far from adequate. They allow the seventh-worst yards-per-game in the NFL (387).
The Alabama Crimson Tide are a good football team. They’re 8-0 overall and...
On Wednesday, Steve Spurrier told The Dan Patrick Show that the University of Alabama football team could compete in the NFL.
Former University of Southern California head coach and current Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll shot down Spurrier’s pipe dream.
“I was confronted with that at times [at USC] and the falsehood is to think that that could ever take place. It ain’t even...
Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said second-year receiver Doug Baldwin is expected to play on Sunday against Minnesota
Doug looks to be ready to go, Carroll said. He had a full week of practice. He surprised us. Coming out of Monday we werent sure, and he just practiced on Wednesday, got through it and had a good week.
Carroll did not rule out defensive tackle Jason...
Doug Baldwin took exception with Seahawks coach Pete Carroll's assessment that the receiver was a long-shot to play this week after missing last week's game with a high-ankle sprain. Baldwin backed that up by returning to practice Wednesday on a limited basis, and on Thursday he was a full participant in practice, indicating that he has a decent shot of getting back. That...
