Video: Steve Spurrier's TV show following the UCF game was a bit off

Wednesday October 2nd, 2013

Steve Spurrier's weekly show following the Gamecocks' 28-25 win over UCF last Saturday wasn't exactly his best effort. In fact, it seems that someone at the school noticed and took down the link to the video at the South Carolina athletics Web page. A replay has also been kept off the air. (For unknown reasons, IMG, which produces the show, reportedly told the SportSouth network to replace it with a rerun.) During The Steve Spurrier Show, Spurrier, who some have pointed out appears to be slurring his words, said, "The biggest thing we have to do is we have to coach better." He later said, "We gotta quit that crap if we're going to be a good team this year."

According to Josh Kendall of The State, Spurrier says that he requested the show's removal:

“I shouldn’t be so negative and I have to come back and say, ‘I shouldn’t have been so negative about our coaches and everything,’” Spurrier said.
