Barry Switzer: Steve Spurrier’s age has nothing to do with him getting his ass beat by Kentucky”

usa-today-8096944.0There was a lot of speculation about the state of the South Carolina Gamecocks football program. Many believe they were on trending downward after struggling last season. Now those rumblings have emerged again after the Gamecocks lost to Kentucky on Saturday night. Many blamed head coach Steve Spurrier and that he has gotten to old to make the play calls. Former Oklahoma head coach Barry Switzer had a very different take on Spurrier’s situation. Switzer says that Spurrier’s age had nothing to do with him getting his ass beat by Kentucky.


“Age has nothing to do with anything,” Switzer told “His age has nothing to do with him getting his ass beat a couple of days ago (by Kentucky).”


I still believe that Spurrier can still coach, but the talent on the team has went down over the past few years. I really believe that after this season, Spurrier should call it a career.
