Steve Spurrier: No need for rule to slow down up-tempo offenses
South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier joined the show to talk about the 10-second rule to slow down up-tempo offenses.
“I left [NCAA rules committee chair]Troy [Calhoun] a voicemail and said our rules are fine,” Spurrier said. “You don’t have to have 80 or 90 plays in a game. If the other offense can stay on the field and convert a bunch of third downs then you can keep the no-huddle offense on the bench.”
Dan asked if it should be called the “Nick Saban rule.”
“He’s the one who went out there and got ‘em to put it on the table,” Spurrier said. “So I don’t know what else you’d call it.”
Spurrier weighed in on his former defensive star Jadeveon Clowney: “Jadeveon is a talent. He can’t be blocked one-on-one …. This year every team had at least two guys waiting him on every play. It opened it up for some of our other guys.”
