The season hasn’t gone according to plan for Steve Spurrier and his Gamecocks. They have a accumulated a 4-5 record after being ranked inside the top 10 in the preseason rankings. After a overtime loss to Tennessee at home, Spurrier quoted a Taylor Swift song when he described the mood of the team.
“I was telling our coaching staff, I think Taylor Swift’s got a song called ‘Shake it Off.’ Ugh. That’s what we’re trying to do, shake it off and get ready for the Florida Gators next week. That’s what we’re going to try to do, see if we can regroup and try to win a close game. You know we’ve had our share of close ones, though we’ve struggled on defense and so forth.”
I hope the Head Ball Coach never changes. He is by far the best coach to interview in college football and he is always good for some gems. The Taylor Swift reference is pure gold.
