Spurrier: Master of Deflection
Look, coaches and the media long have had a love-hate relationship. We saw what happens when mamma's rile gets up last week. This week, we saw Spurrier at his finest. Spurrier spent all of 1994 ignoring a writer for the Orlando Sentinel, something that is incredibly hard to imagine now. Now, on a bitchiness scale, I rate this up there with St. Urban's "You're a bad guy" rant. This is a two days before Aunt Dot gets to town, and you ate the last of the chocolate chocolate chip Häagen-Dazs, you asshole, bitchrant.
As a PR move, it is glorious. He fires Garcia earlier in the day. His allin bet on Garcia staying off High Life and reefer long enough to finish his senior season is called down. Spurrier put winning above doing the right thing, probably the best thing, pure and simple. How to keep the story away from the truck of fail that was the decision to let Garcia off the mat at least four more times? Make counter accusations!
Awesome move, Coach. When you are done, I think Exxon could use some advice on blaming those pesky seals for all the cuteness and shit they leave on rocks, which makes it harder to clean up spilled oil.
Ed Note: In the spirit of blogeristic integrity, it should be noted that Quinton did a 5 questions with Ron Morris before the 07 game.
