As I've said here in the past, I love Steve Spurrier because the man is the only coach in the business who doesn't seem to have a filter between his mind and his mouth at times.  While other coaches may think thinks they won't say in public, Spurrier just doesn't care.  He'll take shots at other coaches, other teams, or even his own players if he feels the need to.

He's the only college football coach whom I wish had a blog.

If he did he could then go into further detail about his feelings for LSU head coach Les Miles.   For now we're just going to have to settle for the subtle digs he takes at Miles while talking about the Gamecocks next game against Nick Saban and Alabama.

"Those were two of the good offenses we had at Florida," Spurrier said. "We looked like we were a lot smarter than [Saban] was those two games. Recently he's a lot smarter than I was last year, let's put it that way. Who knows who'll be the smartest this year? ... Of course, sometimes you can win and still be a dummy. We've learned that recently."

When asked for a response, Miles said "I like turtles."

It seems Les Miles is the constant in this country.  No matter who you are, what you do, where you come from or what you believe in, we can all agree on one thing: Les Miles is the luckiest moron to ever grace the sidelines of a football game.

Steve Spurrier takes a shot at Les Miles

Everyone is taking shots at Miles, and deservedly so.  He and his band of highly overpaid asst coaches screwed the pooch, again.  Hopefully, he learns something this time.  So far, it appears that the only person that really learned anything from the Ole Miss debacle was the center, Hebert, who at least was smart enough to snap the ball prior the the clock running out.  From the first and goal from the two, LSU should have been able to get off four plays in the 36 or so seconds we had.  Instead, we barely got off two plays.  Crowton must have some real bad pictures of Miles because he clearly should have been let go by now.  But, maybe the only reason he is actually still in Baton Rouge is that Miles really is just a dummy.
