Gameday Grind welcomes Spurrier to a place he dislikes alot

New, 1 comment

Before a 15-0 Gamecock victory in Starkville in the 2006 season opener for both schools, South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier had not had a "real good time" in Starkville, Mississippi.  In fact, Spurrier's trips to Starkville prior to that 2006 trip had gone as bad as a road game COULD go for a coach.  In 1992 Spurrier marched his 13th ranked Florida Gators into Scott Field and got waxed 30-6 on ESPN Thursday Night Football.  8 years later a Spurrier-led #3 ranked Florida Gators squad took another beatdown at the hands of the Maroon & White 47-35 in a game that really wasn't that close. 

The irony of the 2000 loss that MState handed to Spurrier: the Bulldogs had dropped out of the polls the previous week because of a loss to... you guessed it, South Carolina, the OBC's current school.  Although that hold that Starkville once held on the OBC may have been lifted with his 15-0 win in 2006, State fans won't soon forget his troubles in our stadium.

Here's to hoping the Ole Ball Coach has some more of those bad mojo vibe feelings today.
