Really, it’s amazing that America has sorta put up with it or compromised, but that is something that should never happen. Our players know that they’re gone if they hit a girl. They know it.
It's good that Spurrier said this for a few reasons. First, it needed to be said and needs to be said by every coach in the SEC and in college football. Second, it sets a standard that he's now going to be held accountable for. If Spurrier gets a report of a player involved in domestic violence and doesn't do anything about it, odds are the report will become public and Spurrier will get destroyed in the media for it -- as he should. In this case, the Head Ball Coach's direct way of speaking is not a joke, but serious and even refreshing.
