Question to Spurrier

On the pending trophy (a bronze sculpture of James Bonham, a South Carolina soldier who died defending the Alamo) awarded to the winner of the South Carolina-Texas A&M game:

“I heard about it. Read about it. Didn’t know it was official yet. I’m actually from Tennessee. I always was taught the hero of the Alamo was Davy Crockett, so this was a new one on me.

“It’s a good story, I’m sure Bonham did some good things. I always thought Davy Crockett was the hero of the Alamo, he and those 33 Tennessee guys that came in there and got killed, so forth. So the trophy was a little surprising to me. I’m sure this guy Bonham was a hero and did a lot of good, after I read the story.”

So the USC/aTm trophy is a shame in Spurrier's eyes?

I don't fully get it either.  Maybe after a few years when there is a real rivalry, but not year one.

Trying to make a cross conference rivalry that people get excited about I guess.

They already tried that once.

Yeah, I guess no one gets excited about playing SC anymore.

They should make the trophy a big turd and make the winning team polish in on national TV.

South Carolina thinks A&M will be easier wins.

They're right.

I think eventually it will turn into the same thing as if there was a trophy between Candy and Tucky.

South Carolina teams with better than .500 records we have beaten.

01, 06, 09, 10, and 11.

Arkansas teams with better than .500 records SC has beaten.

.......

If we are any good, we can count on being better than SC.

Short memories are the best.

Congrats. Now tell me how that will help you beat any team this year with a winning record.
