Spurrier has millions of dollars, a Heisman, a National Title, a few SEC titles, played and coached in the NFL, and even has an ACC title that he won at Duke, in football. And he's tall enough to ride whatever he wants at Disney. He was paying Alabama a compliment but the Forrest Gumps got some sand in their clams and needed something to shout about. Alabama has the top program, act like it.
I think you are onto something there Beaufort'scock, nice addition, straight to the point well supported arguement.
I know, huh?? You'd think they'd be sick of winning already.
You see that sign that says 'Rib Tips'??
No, just correcting a statement made by one of y'all who made a claim that Bama didn't win that game.....I generally save my posts to point out DA's like that.....gfyt

There's tradition and then there's Alabama tradition....'nuff said.
Looks like to me that most of the Cock groupies are as jealous of UA and its tradition as Spurrier is. :)
I think LSU's a pdg program that seen it's best years, on whole, since Saban re-established the program and Miles has carried it forward. Their recruiting has been pretty much up there with Bama's during the last 5-6 year as well.

Since we are all diagnosing Spurriers inner feelings... does anyone else think Saban works hard to surpass him as a coach since he never will as a player? I bet Saban is just miserable knowing Steve has a Heisman...probably super jealous
I doubt Saban's concerned with Steve's Heisman......on any Heisman for that matter. If he was, he'd have made sure Richardson had the carries and the yards to win won and the same with Lacy, and will be just as evident with Yeldon's usage in 2013 I also doubt he's worried any when it comes to his own football career as I expect would be the same with Spurrier. Today and tomorrow are the only things that matter to the both of them, I'd be about willing to bet.
that's ^^^ not fair.. Saban played with charlie weiss and bill belicheck so they split his heisman votes. i am sure he lays in bed at night thinking about Spurrier winning a heisman. definitly jealous---prolly why he's so driven...pure envy of HBc's trophy
(see how stupid that ^^^sounds Bama fans)
So, Cock fans, just so we are clear...who would you rather have leading your program right now, Saban or Spurrier? This should be good considering the other responses ITT.
I like both of them. I don't think you can complain about either one. I haven't looked at Saban's record at Michigan St. I'm going to look at that now.....
I've seen it, and I'm sure it won't be up to your expectations. He did have a couple good years though. I think people close to Saban would tell you he's grown quite a bit and perfected his process since those early days. Even his time at LSU was inconsistent.
An alternative way to look at it is if the system was setup the same when Spurrier was at UF as it is today... Meaning that if you won the SEC you were basically guaranteed to be in the NC.. Spurrier would have made 6 nc appearances in 12 years and 4 in his first 5 as coach.
Does that not seem somewhat comparable? Does to me. But who can blame me for looking at it logically.
You were right, not impressed. LSU years were solid with the obvious title year. Spurrier went from 5-6 to 8-4 with an ACC title his last year at Duke. Then he built UF into what it is now and maintained. What he has done at Carolina speaks for itself. I don't a school could go wrong with either one.
I thought ITT we were discussing Spurriers uncontrollable jealousy towards Saban
You can't really compare Saban at Mich St and Spurrier at USCe. Saban was an unproven commodity at that point, and didn't have an NC on his resume like Spurrier does at USCe now. I guarantee that if Saban were to go to Mich St now with his resume (which would be comparable to Spurrier at USCe now), that his results would be dramatically improved.
Well, that's how it started....until the thin skinned Cock fans took over and began touting Spurrier's resume as being more impressive.
Very great point that hasn't yet been brought up.
Lets just get this out of the way right now: SOS > n.s.
little nicky standing on the shoulders of the giants that preceded him isn't going to change that fact.
One guy goes anywhere, and the other needs to go where others have already established a tradition for excellence.
This is a fact: Winning titles at traditional powerhouses like Bama and LSU [after the traditions for such have been established by others] < establishing a total reversal of fortune at moribund programs like UF, SCAR and Duke

I guess this proves Spurrier's conference title at Duke (as an "unknown commodity") is far superior to Saban's mediocricy in coaching at programs that aren't established in talent-rich states.
Thanks for making my point for me.
Lets remember that his title at duke was at 8-4. Clearly a down year for the league. It's not as if they had one loss.
Let's also not forget that Spurrier faced '95 Nebraska in a title game while Saban got to face 3 teams with functioning retards at QB.
Lots of retards on this board.
Similar to the arrival of the other superhero, Marvel "Meyer" in Ohio.,Spurrier's handin' out the rose colored glasses, and the fans can't see any flaws. Whatsoever..
The footballers@ tOSU are also glommin' onto their savior, and tryin' to ride his 'track record -coat tails'..he's given them a new identity, and they are suckin it down , babee-
He's the new Superman, and now recruiting keeps them on the front pages..
He 's 'dottin' their eyes' now!
