Dan Mullen won nine games last season. He’s allowed a subtle shot / joke at one of the veteran successful coaches.
It was all fun and play...and that's why it's ok.
Asked about the reported $12,000 that South Carolina spent on recruiting services last year, Steve Spurrier responded, "We operate pretty cheaply around here for some reason. I saw Dan Mullen. Mississippi State has a jet airplane out there. They've got a lot of money at Mississippi State."
Beautiful. A good and typical jab from Spurrier. (Who ever thought he would be taking jabs at Mississippi State?)
Upon hearing Spurrier’s comment, Mullen responded later in the day, "I've never played Augusta National, so I can't be on his level. He's probably a member there, we just don't know."
Now that’s good, clean, fair, and entertaining stuff.
Good stuff from Spurrier, but point awarded to Mullen…for have the gonads to step up after a 9-win season. (We're pretty positive neither coach gives a rats @ss who we are giving points to.)
