USC’s Spurrier Takes A Shot At ESPN, The Other USC

gfx - they said itA few hours ago we told you that South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier has an untamed tongue.  It didn’t take long for him to prove that point once more.

Today both Southern Cal and South Carolina — the two USCs from either side of the country — held their Pro Day activities.  Marcus Lattimore’s return to action was cheered at one.  ESPN’s cameras were present at the other to provide live coverage of quarterback Matt Barkley’s workout.  Apparently ESPN’s choice didn’t sit too well with Spurrier who reportedly said:

 

“I noticed both USCs had their pro timing day today.  One of them finished #7 in the country, the other was not in the top 25, yet ESPN decided to go out to the one in California which did not finish in the Top 25 and televise their day live.  It’s interesting that (ESPN) doesn’t come around here on signing day, they don’t come around here on pro timing day, and yet they us to play all these Thursday night games.  Maybe we need to consider playing on that new network, FoxSports 1.”

 

Wow.  There are a helluva lot of digs in that one quick comment.  First, Spurrier smacks around the Trojans — and old buddy Lane Kiffin — over their disappointing finish last season.  Then he goes into full attack mode against SEC television partner ESPN.  The same ESPN that is expected to unite with the league on its brand new network.

While Spurrier may feel that the folks in Bristol don’t pay enough attention to his program, they certainly pay enough cash.  ESPN pays Mike Slive’s league $150 million per year.  That’s $2.25 billion over the course of a 15-year deal for the right to ask Carolina to move some games to Thursday.

Biting the hand that feeds?  Hey, we told you Spurrier gets lippy when he’s winning.

Spurrier says what other coaches want to but don't have the balls to do so.

I agree with Spurrier's frustration here.  This is all about recruiting.  Your team does well and you still have to fight an uphill battle in the recruiting wars.  Not the the Trojans are in direct competition with the Gamecocks over recruits, but, the Trojans are getting airtime while the Gamecocks are not.  Sidenote:  Spurrier is a coach I love to hate.  But, if he is your coach, ya love him.

This time I'm in full agreement with Coach Spurier....he is absolutely correct....

I don't always agree with what comes out of the mouth of the evil one at University or Spurrier's Cocks but I have to agree with him on this.

 @viciousdawg Yes!. Perfect response vicious. Man I love Spurrier. He is so much fun, he does bring out the SEC in all of us. Good ol fashioned trash talk just when we are bored out of our in the football dulldrums gourds. This is what makes college ball sooooo much fun. 

 

I think this has nothing to do with tv or who gets shown doing what by whom. I think this is Steve warming up to toss the first really good bomb at UGA for the 2013 season. In my humble opinion, football season does not start in the SEC until Steve and the Bulldog Nation start their annual war. 

 

I wonder if when football is dead and gone and somebody writes the definitive history of it, there will be a chapter on Spurrier versus Everybody? With a scorecard.......

The Pac 10 or 12 has a contract with Fox and ESPN is still over at their Pro and Signing days. Meanwhile the SEC has a contract with ESPN. I think that was his point with the FoxSports1 jab. I doubt he cares where SC is on TV as long as the games are televised.
