Steve Spurrier’s been renowned for his offensive genius throughout his coaching career. Should he build a capable attack in the SEC this season around Pharoh Cooper, it will be the Head Ball Coach’s most impressive work yet. Cooper was pretty much the show as South Carolina escaped Charlotte with a 17-13 win over North Carolina […]
‘Tis the season, my friends. The eager anticipation is almost at a conclusion with opening night of the 2015 FBS football season almost upon us. The 2015 campaign opened with a bang last Saturday, as Montana scored a touchdown in the final seconds to upend four-time defending national champion North Dakota State. The Championship Subdivision […]
Steve Spurrier may be nearing the twilight of his illustrious career, but the Head Ball Coach is insistent the end isn’t here for him yet.

NC State head coach Dave Doeren said at Tuesday’s session of ACC media days that his home conference has outperformed the mighty SEC over the last two seasons. Before rolling your eyes back into your head far enough to examine your brain, consider where Doeren is coming from. For those of us college football followers […]
Bill Arnsparger died Friday at the age of 88. A 44-year coaching veteran, Arnsparger was obviously well-traveled in his career. Depending on the news outlet you’re reading, Arnsparger was noteworthy for coordinating the Miami Dolphins defense, helping the Chargers to the Super Bowl in the same job there in the 1994 season, serving as head […]
South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier went to one of his favorite wells to open Tuesday’s SEC media days, taking a shot at Tennessee. Spurrier’s time at Florida added a spark to the Vols-Gators series that still burns today, and, guessing from Butch Jones’ response to the Head Ball Coach, another rivalry is brewing. Butch: […]
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. Spurrier: "There's people in Knoxville & […]
The conference released the official list of SEC media days attendees Wednesday, and it’s pretty standard stuff. In fact, most conferences rather casually include a list on their websites or in the release distributed to credentialed media sans the fanfare, but SEC media days has rapidly evolved into a cornerstone of the league’s propaganda machine. […]
When Dabo Swinney and Steve Spurrier agree, it’s perhaps as much an indicator of a consensus we’ll get for any topic. The head coaches of rivals Clemson and South Carolina are known for trading barbs via the media almost year-round, but in the wake of the tragic mass-shooting in Charleston last week, Dabo Swinney and […]
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 […]

Today is Friday the 13th, which presumably means some cable network is airing a marathon of the slasher films of the same name. For those unfamiliar, the Friday the 13th series is a horror franchise, spawned from the popularity of Halloween and bled dry by Paramount Studios because of the movies’ small budgets and guaranteed […]
Former Buffalo coach Jeff Quinn became the second coach to be terminated during the 2014 college football regular season on Monday, joining former Kansas HC Charlie Weis.
