Wednesday Morning Update

Spanning the globe on a Wednesday morning …

Stories and tributes to Steve Spurrier will trickle out in the days to come. He certainly didn’t resign at a great news hour.

Here’s a collection of Spurrier’s best zingers.

Remember, Ole Miss and Hugh Freeze were on the receiving end of Spurrier’s wit in 2011. It was Freeze’s first visit to SEC Media Days, and Spurrier was wishing he could have the Rebels, just 2-10 the year before, on the schedule.

“You think I make the schedule?” said Spurrier, responding to a question. “If I made the schedule Georgia’d be playing LSU, and we’d be playing Ole Miss.”

Georgia did indeed defeat the Rebels in 2012, a game that was competitive for a half in Athens. Spurrier and South Carolina lost to LSU.

Atlanta columnist Mark Bradley points out in this good read that one of the things that made Spurrier’s zingers so interesting is that they were so rare, but they were rare for a reason. …

From Knoxville, Tennessee QB Josh Dobbs on why he broke so many tackles against Georgia:

Dobbs left out the part about horrible Georgia tackling. Worst I’ve seen in an SEC game in a long time. …

A dominant offensive line has been an Alabama trademark for a long time. A few issues up front now for the Tide.

A pirate has been endorsed as head coach of the Trojans. Remember this pirate was mentioned for the Ole Miss job in 2011:

Denham Springs, La., native, Mississippian since 1989 with a stop in Meridian before arriving in Tupelo. Daily Journal beat writer since 1996, covering Ole Miss since 2002. Proud Northeast Louisiana alum. Follow me on Twitter @parrishalford and listen to John Davis and myself daily with The Ole Miss Beat on Rebel Sports Radio.

    I am so sick of hearing about Steve Spurrier ”the old ball coach”.

    After his smartass remark about Ole Miss, I never liked him. It’s too bad Coach Freeze never got to wipe that smirk off his face.
