Steve Spurrier was at the SEC Media Days on Tuesday. Here are some of his best quotes.
On South Carolina’s hopes to make the new play-off system: “We’ve got a pretty good team, we think. Most of the magazines have got us 9, 10, 11 in the country or something like that.”
On Dylan Thompson, his starting quarterback: “He was the only QB in the country to beat UCF”
On boosters: “Big donors (in college) are similar to an owner of an NFL team. Best part they don’t tell you what to do. They’re sort of the owners from a distance. They don’t tell you who to play and what plays to call.”
On Nick Saban, Alabama and Bama’s recruiting: “It’s amazing. I give credit for it. They do it the right away. It’s amazing to me how they’ve been able to stack and keep loading up players every year.”
On Gus Malzahn: “Gus Malzahn is one of the best coaches in the country. They don’t win that national championship (2010) unless he is there.”
On Kevin Sumlin (Texas A&M): “Kevin Sumlin is a good coach. … He’s a good negotiator, too, we know that. He’s got a good deal.”
On winning the SEC Trophy: “I can assure you our fans would rather beat Clemson than winning the SEC. Personally, I’d rather win the SEC.”
On Texas A&M and Texas rivalry: “I think it’s a shame Texas and Texas A&M aren’t playing each other. One of ’em changes conferences and they get mad.”
On the chances of the likes of Vanderbilt winning the SEC: “Only time will tell if Vanderbilt can do it. I know Wake Forest won an ACC one year, but it’ll be interesting.“
