Who is smarter Steve Spurrier or Nick Saban?

Who is smarter Alabama Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban or South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier?

“We looked like we were a lot smarter than he was the first two games,” Spurrier said in the AP story you can read below. “But recently, he was a lot smarter than I was last year, let’s put it that way. Who knows who’s going to be the smartest this year?”

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say the smarter coach between Spurrier and Saban is the coach who doesn’t yank his quarterback during critical moments of the fourth quarter. Spurrier has a history of screwing up his quarterbacks. It cost him a shot at winning the Auburn game. You can read more on the match between coaching legends Nick Saban and Steve Spurrier below:

    The hell with USCjr. They don’t matter. But God, I’d almost hate losing to Spurrier as much as to Auburn. I’ve hated that SOB ever since he returned to Florida. How chickenshit can you get complaining about a 1″ piece of tape on the football field. As if the bastards hands were Lily White. RTR!

    spurrier is thought of as this great offensive wizard but i have always wondered if he had walked into a bad situation at florida would his reputation be the same.

    galen hall got himself into trouble at uf and it cost him his job. but he left the cupboard anything but bare. spurrier hired on to a program chok full of talent and were it not for the probation, would have won the sec his first season.

    spurrier had to rebuild nothing. it was served up to him by hall and before him charley pell.

    coach saban has made his living taking zeros and making heroes. were he at s. carolina, they’d be #1.

    Like they said about the Bear – he’ll take his and beat yours, then he’ll take yours and beat his. There’s a lot to be said about coaching and consistency – the Process!

    Please… some kind of punctuation between “Who is smarter” and “Steve Spurrier or Nick Saban.” A comma, a colon, a dash, whatever. Just some sort of punctuation.

    Is Capstone’s grammar nearly as difficult to read as BPI trying to call us all “dooshbags” during his failed attempts to sound cogent? Now that is clearly the written equivalent of “fingernails down the blackboard.”

    Maybe you can give me the appropriate grammar for this headline: “BPI: A douchebag that spells it ‘dooshbag’ is clearly THE biggest douchebag.”

    I tend to like the use of that there colon, if I say so myself.

    PHUCK AUBURN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You got that quote wrong, even if the spirit was right. Bear said, “I’ll take mine and beat your’s or take your’s and beat your’s.” Insinuating in the strongest way that he could out coach you. RTR!

    Well I’m taking Nick Saban over Steve Spurrier as the smartest coach. Spurrier knows hardly anything about defense and what all comes with that. I’m pretty sure Saban draws out offensive scheme’s with Coach Mac to adjust with personnel. Ahh well, just an opinion. We’ll let the numbers speak I suppose.
