Back in August, Sweetheart and I wrote an article about Steve Spurrier. This article explained how the OBC has put his spread offensive philosophies behind him for the good of the university.This Saturday will test Spurriers' new coaching style against his old team. After proving his talents at Florida - winning the Heisman Trophy as a player and a national championship as head coach- will his success continue with another team?Spurriers' new way of defense and running the football will not get it this time. Against a disorganized Georgia defense, the Gamecocks could run the football with a total of 230 yards rushing. Unfortunately, South Carolina's Lattimore could only muster up 35 yards against a physical defense like LSU. To make things worst, Florida has a better defense than LSU.Lattimore is questionable for the game. This will put more pressure on QB Conner Shaw who threw to picks against LSU last Saturday. Linebacker Jadeveon Clowney needs to make some game changing plays on defense, or this one will get ugly. I've got one thing to say to coach Spurrier, "Turn back time and spread the defense out." The three keys to this: the running battle, turnover battle, and which philosophy Spurrier follows. Gators 14 Gamecocks 10While Florida and Alabama stay on course, other teams will fall like flies.West Virginia 31 K-State 27 West Virginia will be in their comfort zone after two road games. BYU 23 ND 21 Two average offenses and two good defenses will square off. ND will slip up on this day.Texas A/M 27 LSU 17 At home, A/M will score more points than LSU is used to.Baylor 38 Texas 31 Baylor will put up enough points to win with no defense.Miami, Fla. 23 FSU 21 The Canes will play enough defense to take one in South Beach. Sweetheart's Spurrier Stuff I see the gates have opened, rainbows are out and that sexy Spurrier is headed to Florida to do some flourishing!I'm so excited I think I'll actually watch this game. O.K. maybe not the whole game, I'll just pause the T.V. when they show Steve having one of his famous temper tantrums. He's got passion in his pants and he ain't afraid to show it!My dear, SEC possessed Stuart, what are you thinking going against the Gamecocks? If you did your homework you would know sexy Spurrier has won 72 percent of the college games he has coached. I think the Gators will be setting up camp on the 28 percent side. Sorry Gator fans, but look on the brite side, you can give your arms a break!With nine Coach of The Year awards holding up those khakis, I'm sticking with Steve!Gators 0 Gamecocks 95P.S. Mr. Spurrier, you can tweet me @sweetfootball27Sincerely,Sweetheart
