Steve Spurrier on Domestic Violence


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.

Steve Spurrier

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.
