Spurrier Calls Out Saban On Scheduling

June 7, 20139 Comments
South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier called out Nick Saban on his true reason for recently being the only SEC head coach to vote for a nine-conference game format.
quote:Spurrier is referring to the Alabama-Tennessee rivalry game, which the SEC wants to keep, along with Georgia-Auburn. He’s implying that one of the reasons Saban wants to keep it is that it’s a favorable game in the Crimson Tide’s schedule every year.
“Nick Saban wants nine games, well he can have nine and be happy,” Spurrier told the Sporting News. “Yep, nine games against conference opponents — but one of them won’t count, that’s all.”
“Yep, and guess who played in the (SEC) championship game?” Spurrier said. “Scheduling is so important nowadays. But for some reason, we don’t want to acknowledge that. We don’t want to talk about that.”
