Of course he couldn't duplicate his results at a school with fewer built in advantages. There is a reason why Saban went to LSU, and Bama, and Spurrier came to USC. Spurrier likes a challenge, Saban likes winning. Ever wonder why the "best coaches in history" were at Bama, Texas, and Notre Dame? You put a very good coach at Bama, and he becomes a great coach. The two best coaches in the country are at South Carolina and Kansas St., but are not recognized as such because the unbelievably difficult challenges they are able to overcome at such schools only nets them 11 win seasons thus far.
I would add in Chip Kelly, but paying players to come there makes recruiting a lot easier.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
That reason is called a job offer and a lot of money.
And lol at saying Spurrier doesn't like winning.
To be clear, you're saying the top tier of coaches throughout college football consists of Spurrier and Snyder?
And maybe Chip Kelly?
Also vastly superior resources, tradition, ability to dominate recruiting base.
South Carolina would not have had the five million plus unlimited assistant salaries and admin support to land him.
It isn't a fair fight.
....and a lot of money.
I'd add saban and maybe Gundy, but certainly wouldnt say spurrier or snyder dis not belong.
Kelly is a really good mind and coach but he is cheating his ass off. Depends on how you feel about cheating your ass off, I guess.
LOL, you have zero idea what you are talking about. Spurrier himself desdcribed why he liked coaching in college over the pros the other day on Dan Patrick. He said b/c it is only 6 months, 7 with recruiting. He went on to say that the rest of the time is for going to the beach and playing golf. He describes himself as part time.
SOS doing as much recruiting as Saban is laughable! You are talking about a guy who is known as the hardest recruiter in CFB compared to a guy that has had the reputation for not being a diehard recruiter for 20 years. Your comments are so far off it is comical.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
Do you think it's hard to get great players to come to Bama?
Saban would not be doing the same thing if he were not at the best program in the country, period. If he were at Miss St, or South Carolina, he would not have even one NC. There is a reason all of the best coaches in history were at Bama, and ND. What Spurrier and Snyder have done at USC, and KSU is more difficult. Saban is a workoholic, and relentless recruiter. That does not mean that he does the recruiting himself. He has a meeting in his office with recruits when they come on their officials, and does in-homes with the prize recruits, same thing Spurrier does. Saban may spend more hours going over film and stuff, but I'm talking about the face to face stuff. Spurrier does not work as many hours as Saban does, but he doesn't need to. Spurrier is doing things that have never been done at USC. Saban is adding to the fullest trophy case in the country.
So Spurrier is attempting to overcome all of Saban's built-in advantages by working fewer hours?
Spurrier...I appreciate him plenty
