    I think South Carolina fans deserve a good coach. I hope it works out for them, just not against us.

    Holtz is basically the Paterno of the South.....doesn't have it anymore

    They best not blow their chance at landing Spurrier by keeping Holtz on for another mediocre season.

    No chit! :thumb:

    Holtz is way, way past his time. He did enough to bring the cocks back to some respectability and now its someone elses turn to move it up further. Darth Visor will be on a mission at SC, especially after the debacle at his potential re-hire at Florida. If this indeed happens, the SEC east just got a lot tougher for Tinnysee, Gawga and the Gaydors.

    Report: Spurrier will replace Holtz at South Carolina
    12:18 PM CST on Thursday, November 18, 2004


    Associated Press



    COLUMBIA, S.C. - Steve Spurrier has agreed to take over as football coach at South Carolina if Lou Holtz retires at the end of the season, The Tennessean of Nashville reported in Thursday's editions.

    An announcement regarding Spurrier, who won a national championship at Florida, is expected next week, the newspaper said, citing an anonymous source close to the situation.

    South Carolina spokesman Kerry Tharp denied the report. He said the 67-year-old Holtz still needs to decide whether to return for a seventh season with the Gamecocks.

    "Let's let him make that assessment," Tharp told The Associated Press. "I can't comment on what people are speculating. I'd just as soon leave it at that."

    Several times this season Holtz has said he felt tired and worn out. He's also mentioned that Spurrier would be a good choice to succeed him.

    This week, as the Gamecocks (6-4, 4-4 Southeastern Conference) prepared for Saturday's game with Clemson, Holtz addressed reports that South Carolina contacted Spurrier.

    "I've talked to Steve," Holtz said. "I don't want to go in that direction, but I have talked to him. We talked about how you cure a slice, his son, etc. Steve's a good friend of mine, as I said. All I want to talk about is Clemson, Clemson, Clemson. That's all. That's the only thing on my mind."
