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 told The Dan Patrick Show, via Pro Football Talk. “I think a lot of the oddsmakers out there, that usually know what’s going on, I’d guess Alabama would be favored by a little bit.” While Spurrier has an idea of what it takes to win in the NFL, he doesn’t know how to actually make that happen.  He was a complete failure with the Redskins back in the 90′s and clearly doesn’t understand that as good as Alabama is, some of their starters aren’t even good enough to play in the CFL.   var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName(
