The Old Ball Coach
I couldn't help but notice a few blogs that claim a college football coach is God. The few I have seen are very entertaining but flawed. Those coaches are not Gods, they are mere mortals when compared to the great Steve Spurrier. Steve Spurrier is what we here at Steve Spurrier is God like to call, a winner! He wins games, plain and simple.
The South Carolina gamecocks are currently sitting at 5-1 and primed to win the SEC East. Spurrier said he believed the gamecocks could win the SEC. If he says it, then it's true. Steve Spurrier only speaks the truth. But what makes a coach a God?
1. You need followers - Spurrier definitely has followers. The gamecock nation believe in him and everyone else can't stop talking about him. People hate him but they also respect him. And who can blame them, Spurrier is God.
2. You must be great- Spurrier is the single most important person in college football. He wins everywhere he goes in the college football world. He is simply the best. Forget Pete Carroll, Joe Paterno is a joke, Bobby who? and Tommy Bowden is an absolute joke compared to Spurrier. You can't blame Tommy for being unable to compare to Spurrier because Spurrier is God.
3. You must be feared - Spurrier terrifies the likes of Clemson, Florida, Georgia.... hell, every college football program in the country. He is the most hated college football coach around. People hate greatness and Spurrier is great. Last year in the Clemson game Spurrier had Bowden so confused he looked like even more incompitant than usual. It was expected though because Spurrier is God!
You can look forward to many more post about Steve Spurrier and his greatness. I would like to apologize in advance to college football programs all over the country that will get utterly destroyed by Spurrier in games, recruiting and life in general. Just know that after you were beaten you were just in the presence of greatness.
