Steve Spurrier Still Knows How To Tweak Georgia

No one's ever accused South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier of not having a smart mouth, and he delivered again when asked how he felt about the Gamecocks annual SEC East game with Georgia moving from the first few weeks of the season to October:

South Carolina beat the Dawgs 45-42 last year, pushing Spurrier's record against Georgia to 14-5, although most of that success comes from his time at Florida, where he was 11-1.

This season, Georgia suspended star S Bacarri Rambo, as well as LB Alec Ogletree and CB Sanders Cummings, for a variety of off-the-field issues.

And with traditional powers Tennessee and Florida going through down cycles, the SEC East title may come down to the South Carolina/Georgia game. If it does, you can expect this isn't the last hot sports opinion Spurrier will share about Mark Richt's program.
