Nope. Not here in Pawleys
Different strokes for different folks.
Look, I used to beat up on SOS for his lack of being 'involved', or being the Saban/Urban 'type'. But, let's get real - SOS is the reason those kids are representing USC in this draft and not another team. And, it's really not that big of a deal.
Can see both sides, would love to see him there supporting the guys that really turned this program around, but really it doesn't matter at all. Its not about him, its about them.
Exposure, program publicity, recruiting, support of the players, for starters.
And here is a reason Saban is so good at what he does. Calls a 5 star RB from NY right after Richardson is drafted.
Kiffin's presence is reason enough to stay away.
I don't think it's that big of a deal that Spurrier, like most of the coaches of players invited to NY, isn't there. Going to the draft is definitely an "extra credit" move on the part of those coaches who are there. There's no sense in pretending, though, that Saban's presence has a purpose other than to gain a recruiting advantage.
Spurrier...I appreciate him plenty
Is Dabo there?
Saban likes kissing ass and fellating 17 year olds' senses of self...Spurrier likes being a smart ass and hoping they enjoy his sense of humor.
Saban gargles twice a day and swallowed a ton last year. It got him some NC's, but his breath must be horrible.
Nah just his mom.j
You are that tight with Spurrier that you know his schedule now?
Someone has to cut his grass.
Hey if I had six kids under the age of 12, I'd be getting all the r&r I could. Just sayin......
Just curious....what is the legal limit of downvotes allowed for one thread? This is just dumb. Why is it the same names are always attached to the nitpicking? Would have given you a pass if the title of this thread was, "Would've been cool to see SOS stand up and hug Stephon and Melvin when they're names were called..." But "dropping the ball" is just ridiculous.
This thread should be called "Who Gives A F####!"
That's because you're a predictable douche bag. Had Spurrier shown up and not Saban you'd be bitching about how Spurrier was in NY wasting time (probably snuck Ina round at Bethpage) while Nick was out recruiting.
Nobody gives a flying fark what coach is at the draft. Only asshats looking to complain.
Those making accusations about SOS having nothing else to do, or not caring about our players being drafted tonight, might want to check on a certain event which took place tonight in the Zone at WB stadium.
Palmetto Health had a major fundraiser for Children's Hospital, and our "insensive and uncaring' head coach was giving his time having his picture made with anyone who wished, with all proceeds going to cancer treatment and research. This seems more important than being in New York! Just saying....
This is just about the lamest complaint I have ever heard.
So @#$%in' what!!!
Were you in a coma last year when we had the best season in our history?
We didn't get there by Spurrier not working.
You have forfeited all credibility.
This./\. SS doesn't want to take away from their moment.

NEVER had any with me in the first place.
