The Head Ball Coach sat down to discuss this weekend's matchup against the Missouri Tigers today. Spurrier and the media boys talked all things football for about 13 minutes with the conversation going from the play calling process, the Nunez to Shaw comparison, an overflow at tight ends, playing for trophies, and rapper Lil Boosie.
I guess Spurrier has a little rap game flowing on that iPhone.
Here's some highlights from the Tuesday media session.
"Once a year we play the Missouri Tigers, battle of Columbia, nice little trophy...They have won the Eastern Division the last two years. They lose one game somewhere along the line and then they win the rest of them."
Spurrier on Mizzou: "They always got a good defense and this year's no exception. They take great pride in their toughness out there."— David Cloninger (@DCTheState) September 29, 2015
Here's an injury update for you:
It looks like Chris Lammons has a chance to play, while Knott and Wilds remain doubtful.
Chris Lammons will practice today. Brandon Wilds and Alan Knott will not. Right now, doubtful that Wilds and Knott play.— David Cloninger (@DCTheState) September 29, 2015
Some position changes:
Coaches moved Hayden Hurst to WR this week.— GamecockCentral.com (@GamecockCentral) September 29, 2015
Ulric Jones is at TE. He warmed up there last Saturday.— GamecockCentral.com (@GamecockCentral) September 29, 2015
On the impressive play of freshman quarterback Lorenzo Nunez:
"He does a good job of just being tough...The block he made the other day - the players said, 'Hey this guy is pretty tough'...Those are the kind of things your teammates admire and respect about you."
On the play calling:
Spurrier on play-calling: "If it goes bad, I did it, and if it goes good, maybe we all did it." Ultimately he can overrule any call.— David Cloninger (@DCTheState) September 29, 2015
On the defense:
"Our defense played very well in the second half again. Amazingly, we have shut out three of our four opponents in the second half this year. (The defense has) played real well at times."
Who'd a thought Lil' Boosie would've made the biggest news coming out of today's presser.
Steve Spurrier asked about Lil' Boosie. "The rapper? ... I heard them talking about it other day. I don’t keep up with a lot of rappers."— Josh Kendall (@JoshatTheState) September 29, 2015
