Saban said during the Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday, "LSU wasn't winning when I went there. Michigan State wasn't winning when I went there. Toledo wasn't winning when I went there. And Alabama really wasn't winning when I came here. I guess I gotta go someplace else. I don't know." He added, "I think it's great, I love Steve. I'm always anxious to hear what he has to say - it's always funny."

Saban responds to Spurrier Not a bad comeback to Spurrier's line about him from April, all things considered, but he completely missed (or avoided) Spurrier's actual point. Hit the link if you're lost on the exchange.

In the last three years, Georgia has gone 16-8 in SEC play, behind only Florida and Alabama (20-4 each). In the last five years, Georgia has gone 26-14 in SEC play, behind only Florida (32-8), Alabama (28-12), and LSU (27-13). In the last ten years, Georgia has gone 55-25 in SEC play, behind only Florida (61-19) and tied with LSU. In the last nine years, the SEC East has been represented in the conference championship game by Georgia three times, by Florida three times, and by Tennessee three times. In the last eight years, Georgia has won two SEC championships, Florida has won two SEC championships, LSU has won two SEC championships, and Alabama and Auburn have won one SEC championship apiece. As Year2 demonstrated in the above posting, the Gators unquestionably have been the alpha dog of the SEC East since the divisional split in 1992, but the Bulldogs just as unmistakably have taken on in the 2000s the role Tennessee occupied during the 1990s; namely, that of chief challenger to Orange and Blue hegemony. Georgia’s 3-17 record against Florida since 1990 tells no lies; more of those losses were blowouts than nailbiters, and a late time out in Jacksonville in 1993 represents the only even arguably controversial finish in the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party since Steve Spurrier returned home to Gainesville. However, the Red and Black’s consistently solid overall performance and ability to match division crowns and league titles with anyone in the 21st century demonstrate how wrong it is to argue that the ’Dawgs have fewer good days on the field in the fall than their SEC coevals.

What I wrote at Team Speed Kills, in response to a comment claiming that Georgia "always seems to have their best days in Birmingham in the summer rather than on the field in the fall." Go 'Dawgs!

Broke news to Steve Spurrier about B. Johnson. At end of conversation he said, "Gonna try to get Jevan Snead back on the ballot this year."

The Gainesville Sun's Pat Dooley Even during the midst of something like this, the Head Ball Coach keeps his sense of humor. I'm pretty sure he always keeps his sense of humor. Bonus quote from ESPN's Ivan Maisel: "Bobby Johnson made a lot of chicken salad at Vandy."

"Utah deserved a chance to play in a bigger game,'' Spurrier said. "They shouldn't be an outcast. They are undefeated but there's only one game for two teams, It makes it difficult. You would have to have some kind of playoff system to allow those teams to get into the national championship hunt. They should be allowed in it. Boise State should be in it. But that's not the way we do it.''

Spurrier Stumps for Utah, Boise State The Ol' Ball Coach has some love for the Broncos. Maybe it's the orange and blue, or maybe it's just because there's no good reason to be exclusionary. (emphasis mine)

Spurrier Stumps for a Playoff When you think of college football's great egalitarians, a guy who loves to run up scores on lesser opponents is not one that immediately comes to mind. Yet, I give you South Carolina head coach Steve Spurrier. Former Utah head coach Urban Meyer? "I think it’s intriguing to listen to it. For now, I think we’ve got the best system in an imperfect system." Huh? What happened to Meyer the playoff crusader?

The South Carolina coach, who had a history of taking verbal jabs at Kiffin’s predecessor, Phillip Fulmer, questioned whether Kiffin broke NCAA recruiting rules by contacting Tennessee recruits before he was cleared to do so.

The Tennessee band was there [Saturday] night, weren’t they? I’m used to hearing "Rocky Top." ... Maybe they only play that when they score. Usually when you play Tennessee, you hear that "Rocky Top" so often it’s ringing in your brain.

South Carolina qbs: the Lean Cuisines of college players, since you heat them, take them out, stir them up a little bit, put them back in, then let them sit there to cool off before eventually devouring them and moving on to the next one.

Oh, he's missed a bunch of [team breakfasts]. He misses everything. He's struggling to do things right. But that's just him. He can't hardly call the play right. He gets confused. I don't know what it is. He just has a tough time.
