Steve Spurrier

Steve Spurrier has been neutered by the NFL. He's not the same coach he was when he coached the Florida Gators. His decision making is not the same either. It's obvious he won't ever win a SEC Championship at South Carolina. He should have taken the Miami Hurricanes job when it came open.
The Miami Hurricanes remind me of the situation Alabama was in a couple years ago when Alabama was under Mike Shula. It wouldn't surprise me after this year that Randy Shannon gets fired and the Hurricanes go after a big name coach such as Steve Spurrier. Steve Spurrier needs to realize just like Brett Favre needs to realize. They've tarnished their legacy. Favre won't win no Super Bowl with the Jets nor get them into the playoffs. Spurrier won't win at South Carolina it's a dead end job. The best advice to Spurrier he's wasting his time at South Carolina when he could find something better. Also Spurrier was a Heisman winning quarterback and he's yet to find a top rated quarterback. What's up with that?

Just from the sideline shots of him, it looks as if he's not into the game anymore. I think he's wishing he were on the links. There doesn't seem to be the passion of old.

I have to agree with you both.  I was a Spurrier fan while he was at Florida.  He did a great job there (obviously) and should have never left for the NFL.  That was career suicide (as it is for many successful college coaches).  He is hardwired to coach college kids and the NFL took the wind right out of his sails and he has never recovered. 

On the plus side for Vanderbilt fans everywhere (including me), Spurrier's Gamecocks rolled into Nashville last night ranked 24th in the nation and limped out after suffering the first loss by a ranked team on the Commodores home field since 1992.

I think Spurrier is D-O-N-E.

I don't think Spurrier realized how difficult recruiting would be at South Carolina.  They're competing against many schools in the region with much better histories.  Spurrier is 64 and is starting to look worn out.  Don't be surprised if this is his last stop.
