South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier
When it comes to media days, nobody is better than South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier.
The Head Ball Coach provided a seemingly never-ending stream of quotes at every stop, as he made the rounds in Hoover, providing the best performance this event has seen in quite some time
What were the best?
He again made a stand for player stipends, making the case for some extra pocket money for his players.
"We're only talking about $300 a game; basketball would be a little less. But where the players in the course of the year would get $3,600, $3,900, depending on how many games you play."
He called out Notre Dame for not being in a conference and asked whether or not it deserved a full share of BCS money. Per Jason Lieser of the Palm Beach Post, that vote among SEC coaches, according to Spurrier, was unanimous.
"We just started trying to figure out why the athletic director at Notre Dame is equal to all of the conference commissioners. Nobody has a good answer except that's the way it's always been done. For whatever reason, all of 14 of our head coaches thought that Notre Dame should join the ACC and play football like the rest of us. They're in a conference. I know the Notre Damers will get mad at me and us coaches maybe for saying that."
He also jabbed at Georgia, something he has done quite a bit ever since his days as the Florida head coach.
"We're going to try to beat them, and they're going to try to beat us," he said. "Last year, Georgia didn't play very well at all."
Per Macon.com, Spurrier also has quite the affinity for Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze, thanks to his choice of headgear.
"Well last year when I was here Ole Miss was 2-10," Spurrier said. "Hugh and I have a lot in common. We both play golf, we both wear visors. We both call plays. How can you not like a guy like Hugh Freeze."
But his affinity for other coaches and players expands beyond the realm of college football.
When asked if Spurrier wanted to make a stand now that he's here, including for world peace, Spurrier responded as only he could.
"World Peace? World Peace got waived by the Lakers and still got $7.7 million."
Never change, Head Ball Coach. Never change.
