'"I learned it doesn't pay to make cute remarks." -- South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier, in 2005, on toning down his act upon returning to the SEC.
They said it.

In less than one day, the Gamecocks' coach is threatening to completely rewrite this compendium of memorable quotes.

"It's easier to win the National Championship than it is the SEC. Just ask Nick Saban."

"Some of you guys have been here 30-40 years. They don't fire media people."

"You think I make the schedule? If I made the schedule, Georgia'd be playing LSU and we'd be playing Ole Miss."

"I think when a sports writer asks how much longer I’m going to coach I should ask him how much longer is he going to write.""If I were calling the shots, I'd have 8 teams go play. "

"If I were calling the shots, I'd have 8 teams go [to the playoffs]. ... But I don't guess we'll ever do it that way."
