Spurrier fine with Davis leaving after 2014

South Carolina running back Mike Davis enjoyed quite the breakout season in 2013, but bigger things could be in store for one of the SEC's best offensive weapons. Built like a miniature tank, Davis could build on his 1,183-yard, 11-touchdown performance in 2013 with a run at the Heisman or at least a spot on the All-SEC first team. But the junior also has a chance to propel...

Steve Spurrier's comments hilarious taken out of context

Yesterday, WYFF News in Greenville, South Carolina did a story on how South Carolina football coach Steve Spurrier approaches the team’s annual game with in-state rival Clemson.

Steve Spurrier Not Happy With Preseason All-SEC Teams, Thinks More Gamecocks Should’ve Been Honored

Cann and Corey Robinson–and one player on the third team–defensive back Brison Williams...

Can we please see Steve Spurrier in one more big New Year’s bowl game before it is too late?

Steve Spurrier has not coached a team in a big time, traditional New Years Day bowl game since romping Maryland 56-23 in the 2002 Orange Bowl. It is hard to believe so much time has passed by since one of the most quotable coaches in the sport of college football has had a chance to shine on such a big stage, but now is the time for that void to be filled. Spurrier needs to lead...

Oh Stephen Garcia, you crazy rascal

2014 SEC Preview: Can South Carolina FINALLY win a SEC title?

Despite all the talk that comes out of Steve Spurrier's mouth, there one thing that's for certain about his South Carolina Gamecocks: They've never won a SEC title under him. Sure, they went there in 2010. But they lost, and despite Spurrier's annoyance at the schedule, they haven't been back since.  But this year the Gamecocks are favored for the SEC East. Can...

The Genius of Spurrier lies with his psychological tactics

HOOVER, Ala. -- The genius of Steve Spurrier wasn't in the way he drew laughs from the collected writers Tuesday at SEC Media Days, name-dropping Davy Crockett when discussing the Alamo or divulging a booster taking him to the Bahamas "on his jet airplane, on his yacht, pretty good trip." At the same time, the genius wasn't in how he managed to knock South Carolina...
