Steve Spurrier should retire

Steve Spurrier is as light and soft as this fluffy treat.

Congratulations to University of South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier for winning CapstoneReport.com’s “Peep of the Week” award.

Is there a softer head coach in all of America than Steve Spurrier?

Known for his love for golf and disdain for long days at the office, his apparent deplorable work ethic has been laid bare for all to see.

Once known for developing record setting college quarterbacks like Danny Wuerffel, Rex Grossman and Shane Matthews, Spurrier has apparently forgotten how to do it.

Or, maybe it’s just more fun chasing a little white ball around the golf course than putting in the time and effort to recruit quality players to that position at South Carolina.

Or maybe it’s just too fun to have pictures taken of himself in public without a shirt on.

Whatever the case may be, if this guy was Alabama’s head coach, no being able to manage anybody better at the quarterback position than Stephen Garcia the last four years, I would be pulling my hair out right now.

Garcia has had his moments…last year’s lights out performance against Alabama being one of the few…but unfortunately for Gamecock fans he is best known for laying eggs when it matters most. His off-the-field problems have painted him as anything but a leader, a quality that’s needed most at that position.

Though Spurrier has been as transparent as a sheet of Reynolds Wrap about his feelings for Garcia’s sub-par abilities and performances, he doesn’t seem to be able to field anything better.

Why? Perhaps here’s a clue: “Fore!”

There was a brief period of time after Mike Shula was let go that many thought Steve Spurrier could be on his way to Tuscaloosa.

And tonight, as I lay me down to sleep, I will add the fact that he isn’t to my prayer of so many things for which I am thankful to God.

So congratulations Steve. You’re this week’s “Peep of the Week”.

Now please retire and do what you really want to do with your time.

Also receiving votes:
• The entire SEC East

• The University of Memphis
• Florida’s pre-game festivities…entire statium actually did two-bits, no lie.
