Steve Spurrier has been known to take a jab or two at other SEC programs.
And ever the jokester, he told Nick Saban he might want to get out of coaching pretty soon. In a feature story written by ESPN’s Chris Low, Spurrier joked that Saban should get out of coaching before Tuscaloosa tries to run him out of town after a three-loss season.
“It happens to everybody, especially in this league,” Spurrier said. “He told me he didn’t know what they would do to him around there if he ever lost three games. I can already hear it, people saying that he’s lost it, but he sure does have that thing rolling.”
While No. 25 Florida merely beat UMass 24-7, No. 1 Alabama hammered No. 20 Southern Cal 52-6. Saban has only lost three or more games twice in his time in Alabama, with the last time coming in 2010. Saban actually lost to Spurrier’s South Carolina team that year. That was the last time Spurrier and Saban squared off.
Spurrier also wondered how LSU could still struggle on offense and said that LSU was just as talented as Alabama.
“Every year, they have as much talent as anybody in the SEC, and that’s including Alabama,” Spurrier said.
