Quotes (and video) from Spurrier

We caught the following quotes from Steve Spurrier's press conference today...

On lessons learned from the ECU game, "I learned it's always beneficial if the other team fumbles to you three times in a row."

On Georgia's plan against Lattimore, "They are going to stack the box...maybe we need to throw the ball better to beat em."

On telling his players the importance of this game, "I hope all of our players know that Georgia is in our division; but I'm not sure if they do or not."

"We're trying to play better this week than we did last week"

"Connor Shaw is fine.  He saw what happened...he understands that Stephen played a lot better than he did."

On Stephen Garcia, "We've been asking Stephen to shave for 5 years now. Sometimes he does, sometimes he doesn't. I think a QB should be shaven....quarterbacks should wear their hats forward facing, you know normal, quarterbacks should look sharp." 

Asked how he votes for the Heisman, "I vote for whoever I want to...yes, I do try to vote for guys on our team..."


Strength guys, this one's for you

Tennessee athletics just put this video out featuring head strength coach Ron McKeefery. 

McKeefery speaks about what he's trying to accomplish with his program at Tennessee.


No TV Tuesday

No live games on TV tonight (or tomorrow).  Is the power of the Worldwide Leader dwindling?

Thursday night we've got Arizona at Oklahoma State and the Saints at the Packers.

Onside kick

In case you didn't see this on Saturday...

Auburn scored with about 2 minutes left to get back to within 3 points of Utah State (yes, let that part soak in for a minute).  Chizik decides to go for the onside kick.

Special teams coordinator Jay Boulware calls it...one high, long hop...catch it on the fly.  

Auburn lines up 6 guys (all speed) outside the hashes.  Utah State only has four guys there to counter.  Advantage Auburn. 


What happens after a 17 hour bus ride

Adrian College (MI) took it's team by bus to play Husson University in Bangor, ME.  That's over 1,000 miles...one way...17 hours on the bus for the guys.

When they got there, we envision head coach Jim Deere saying something like, "OK guys let's stretch our legs."  

His Bulldogs did more than that, they hung 77 on Husson.  Final score, Adrian 77 - Husson 7.  The Bulldogs scored 21 in the 1st quarter, 28 in the 2nd and 14 in each of the 3rd and 4th quarters.  

We guess after a 1,000 mile, 17 hour bus ride, you gotta let the kids play a little before packing them back in for the return trip.
