The ‘Ol Ball Coach is back and we love it! On Wednesday, South Carolina and Southern Cal both held their pro day, however, it was the Trojans and Lane Kiffin getting the ESPN treatment.

Spurrier noticed and held nothing back when discussing that very situation. Even going as far as taking a shot at ESPN and talking about taking his team’s talents to the brand new FoxSports 1.

Josh Kendall, South Carolina beat writer for The State, recounts Spurriers’ comments from today:




Now Spurrier doesn’t have the ability to take the Gamecocks to FoxSports 1, but it is ironic timing with the recent introduction of the new sports network and their mission to unseat the holy grail that is ESPN.

Please don’t ever stop being you, Spurrier.

    Guess it would be a buzzkill to point out the ESPN’s LA studio is 2 miles away from the court-mandated real USC? If ESPN opens up another studio in Atlanta, I’m sure UGA, SCar, Clem, Aub, Ala would get added exposure as well. FoxSports 1 is opening a studio in Charlotte, I believe, so expect them to try to own the ACC and SEC schools in the immediate proximity.
