What The Hell Is Wrong With Steve Spurrier?
The University of South Carolina’s official athletics website has yanked the most recent installment of head coach Steve Spurrier’s weekly television show – and Fox Sports South has yanked its scheduled rerun of the program.
There’s no official answer at this point, but Spurrier’s awkward body language and slurred speech during two brief appearances on the program have raised questions about his sobriety.
“Drunk as a skunk!” one commenter noted in response to a bootleg copy of the show that was posted to YouTube.com.
“Spurrier’s hammered!” another exclaimed.
Is he? We’ll let you be the judge of that …
Spurrier’s first segment begins at the 12:00 minute mark. His second segment begins at the 16:40 mark.
Take a look …

Wow … he sure looks (and sounds) drunk to us.
In fact we can’t wait till columnist Ron Morris of The (Columbia, S.C.) State newspaper weighs in on this story.
Oh … right. Never mind.
Anyway, Spurrier’s No. 12/13 Gamecocks (3-1, 1-1 SEC) host conference rival Kentucky (1-3. 0-1 SEC) on Saturday night at Williams-Brice Stadium in Columbia, S.C. No word yet on whether the USC head coach will submit to a breathalyzer prior to the game.
UPDATE: University of South Carolina athletics department spokesman Steve Fink isn’t getting into specifics about why the show was pulled …
“Coach wasn’t happy with the show so we took it down,” Fink tells FITS.
