Spurrier has had success at every stop in college. He even won at Duke. The Gamecocks have more talent now than they have ever had but Spurrier is still trying to bring the Gamecocks their first SEC title. This is why Spurrier came here, this is the ultimate goal. Will he do it before he retires? Did he miss out on chances to do it the last couple years with losses to teams the Gamecocks had no business losing to?
In honor of Spurrier's tenth season in Columbia, we will use the Second and Ten Football Simulator to simulate the coaching career of Spurrier at South Carolina. I will take over the reigns of the Gamecock program and see if I can find more success than the HBC.
We start it all in the 2005 season. The Gamecocks finished a game back of Georgia in the SEC East in 2005 and that was due to a two point loss to the Bulldogs. Can you imagine if he would have led the Gamecocks to the SEC Title game in his first season?
That will be the goal as I take over the 2005 Gamecocks.
Here is a look at the Spurrier college coaching career. I will track my stats right next to his. Stay tuned.
