Steve Spurrier took a nice little shot at the Ole Miss pay-for-play investigation while being interviewed at the Regions Tradition pro-am.
Death, taxes, and getting a prime soundbite from Steve Spurrier in mid-May: some things in life are absolute.
While at the Regions Tradition pro-am golf tournament on Wednesday, AL.com caught up with Spurrier, who was his usual loquacious self. The Head Ball Coach weighed in on everything from his relationship with Nick Saban to whether college football needs a commissioner to the benefits of the College Football Playoff.
Oh yeah, and he also jabbed a little barb in the side of Ole Miss, who is in the throes of a public pay-for-play investigation.
Asked if he’d ever consider being college football’s commissioner, Spurrier responded, “Oh, that sounds like a lot of work traveling around the country trying to keep up with Ole Miss and whoever else is under investigation right now.”
Heck, Spurrier might have also been taking a little shot at North Carolina, a former rival from his days coaching at Duke who is navigating the waters of a university-wide paper classes scandal.
Just because he’s no longer coaching doesn’t mean Spurrier has any less one-liners in his arsenal. It’s talking season, after all. Heck, every day is pretty much talking season for the HBC now that he’s living life on the links. If he doesn’t have a weekly segment on College GameDay this upcoming season, then we’ve collectively failed as football fans.
