HOOVER, Ala. — A longtime participant at the annual SEC Media Days, Steve Spurrier stays true to his act.
Known for occasionally making brash and candid statements in the 20 years he’s attended the event, the South Carolina coach was his usual self again Tuesday.
Spurrier drew laughs at the podium with his comments about the upcoming conference schedule, his latest obsession in remarks made to the media.
“You think I make the schedule?” Spurrier said. “If I made the schedule, Georgia will be playing LSU and we’d be playing Ole Miss.”
All slights to Ole Miss aside, perhaps Spurrier’s comment was made in jest. But since the Gamecocks were left out of last season’s SEC Championship game, Spurrier hasn’t missed an opportunity to deliver his opinion on the matter.
