Spurrier’s spur doesn’t bug Bulldogs

South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier stirred up some mild controversy this spring when he called out Georgia for consistently having players suspended during their annual match-up.

“I sort of always liked playing them that second game because you could always count on them having two or three key players suspended,” he said to ESPN last March.

Spurrier was referencing the schedule change that shifted the Georgia-South Carolina game to the sixth week of the season opposed to the second, which it had been since 1992.

Rich brushed off the comments during spring practice, saying, “How ‘bout that? I think that’s funny. That sounds like Steve.”

Robinson said that Spurrier had a point when making the claims, whether they were harsh or not.
“I’d say that he might be right, at least in recent history,” Robinson said. “But I’m not going to fight fire with fire. It’s nothing like ‘old man football,’ though. I don’t have any signs to hold up this time.”
