From Stephen Garcia to Davy Crockett to retiring on the beach, Steve Spurrier was on a roll for his SEC media day presser on Tuesday.
As if you expected anything else. His best lines are below.
Steve Spurrier: “As soon as I see Stephen (Garcia) I’m going to tell him it looks like he joined Duck Dynasty instead of the media.”

Spurrier: “OK, good to be here. … (time) to get ready for talkin’ season.”

Spurrier just referred to Dylan Thompson as “the only quarterback in the country to beat UCF.” File that one away. — Stewart Mandel (@slmandel) July 15, 2014
Spurrier asked if winning at South Carolina is harder. “Well they had never won at Florida until I got there.” Coach Boom is sad. — Hugh Kellenberger (@HKellenbergerCL) July 15, 2014
Spurrier with his first “this, that or the other.” Drink!

Spurrier: “big donors (in college) are similar to an owner of an NFL team. Best part they don’t tell you what to do.”

“I always thought Davy Crockett was the here of the Alamo. His and his 33 guys from Tennessee … that got killed and so forth.” — Hugh Kellenberger (@HKellenbergerCL) July 15, 2014
Spurrier thought he’d coach in NFL for 5/6 years and then retire to beach. “That was a bad plan, it really was.” — Josh Kendall (@JoshatTheState) July 15, 2014
Spurrier: “I read in the paper that http://t.co/DBeXe2vdWD had us No. 2 in recruiting. Of course Alabama was No. 1.”

Spurrier: “It’s a shame that Texas and Texas A&M don’t play anymore. I think that’s sad. Florida plays Florida State. We play Clemson.” — Dave Matter (@Dave_Matter) July 15, 2014
Spurrier says A&M has recruited very well, been in top 10 recruiting last three years, calls Sumlin “a good negotiator” with new $5M salary.
