In a recent interview, Steve Spurrier said he has no plans to leave the University of South Carolina any time soon. After all, don't they say "South Carolina is where old coaches go to die" .He says his health is great, his golf game is great, and coaching football is all he wants to do. For those of you who thought he was relinquishing his play calling duties and overall offensive responsibilities, think again. Super Steve emphasizes that he is still the offensive coordinator with total control of that side of the ball. He will work with Steve Spurrier, Jr. with play calling, but those will be Dad's calls in the end. It is true that Spurrier has made the Gamecocks a team to be reckoned with. However, being that team as opposed to being an SEC contender are two different things altogether. If Carolina is on your schedule, you better prepare well for them. But you won't have to prepare for them in an SEC Championship Game anytime soon, because they will not be there!
