Steve Spurrier is claiming another victory over a ranked opponent this morning after his Gamecocks beat Mississippi 16-10 last night. When asked about the win he compared it to beating, you guessed it, Kentucky in 2007 when we had our highest ranking in decades at #8.
The article comes from Gregg Doyel's assessment of Mississippi being GROSSLY overrated at #4. As much as some of Doyle's nonsense irritates me, he is dead on with this one. Mississippi had no business being ranked in the top 10 this early in the season. Top 25, maybe, and move them up if they beat someone, but Doyle seems to think it was the entire world falling under some sort of spell concocted by Mel Kiper over at ESPN. Or possibly it was the SEC juggernaut that was at fault, but either way, SC didnt beat that good of a team. Jevan Snead has holes in his game that a really good defensive plan will exploit. And as much as Spurrier likes to make his offense the star of the game, this one he has to hand to his defense. I just loved the fact that Spurrier when questioned has UK on the brain.......think he is looking at us harder this year?.....probably not, since he seems to own us, but who knows??....if the experts were all wrong about Ol' Miss.....maybe they were wrong about us too??
