Steve Spurrier is at it again...
Yesterday he was talking about Clemson closing their practices to the media, today he was throwing jabs about Texas A&M's schedule. Here is what he had to say per GoGamecocks.com:
“They haven’t played the bigger teams so their schedule has been a little misleading,” the Gamecocks coach said Wednesday during a speech in front of the Columbia Touchdown Club.
Last year, the Aggies have played Rice, Sam Houston State, SMU and UTEP in their non-conference schedule. Spurrier referred to those team as “barely Division I.”
“I find it interesting that they quit playing Texas,” Spurrier said. “They played Texas 115 years like we have played Clemson and then they left that Big 12 conference and both schools got mad at each other and said, ‘We aren’t going to play you anymore.’ It would be like us and Clemson saying we are not playing anymore. Our whole state would go crazy. The governor would get involved in that.”
The Gamecocks and the Aggies face off against each other in Week 1. Should be a good one.
