Is there any possible way we can get Steve Spurrier mic’d up 24/7? It would really make the world a better place.
Following South Carolina’s athletics/media golf outing on Thursday, Spurrier took some time to answer a few questions. One specific item he addressed was the Gamecocks’ new rivalry with Texas A&M. The two will play for the Alamo Trophy, but if Spurrier had his way, it’d be for something that touches a little closer to home: the Davy Crockett trophy.
Crockett, who died at the Battle of Alamo, and Spurrier both came from Tennessee. For six years of his life (1st grade through 6th), Spurrier learned about Crockett, and Crockett only. That’s probably a little bit of an exaggeration, but we’re going with it.
Spurrier: Alamo isn’t near Texas A&M is it? I think SC-A&M should play for the Davy Crockett trophy. #Gamecocks

Spurrier: “As youngster growing up in Tennessee, that’s all we learned from 1st grade through the 6th, was Davy Crockett.” Off the rails.

Honestly we are riding this Davy Crockett train Spurrier is driving. Let’s design the trophy after this image, produce Texas A&M and South Carolina coonskin hats, and call it a day.
