Not the Steve Spurrier of Your Childhood. Year 2 over at Team Speed Kills talks about how he truly realized when Steve Spurrier, formerly a trend setter that always did things his way, chose to implement the Wildcat and thus follow Houston Nutt.

Only time will tell whether Spurrier's new, more pragmatic tactics can help him turn the corner at South Carolina.
