I don't know what kind of program coach Lou left but to give Spurrier no credit is absurd. There was a period there when they were winning all but 1 or 2 games per year. Spurrier's decline is directly correlated with Dabo's ascent. Again South Carolina historically has been about like Purdue or Kentucky. Not as bad as Duke/Vandy schools but never winning big. Give Spurrier credit.Spurrier didn't take over the dregs. Holtz layed some pretty good groundwork down, otherwise, Spurrier never agrees to coach there.
And compete for a Natty is a stretch. Clemson was hardly a world beater under Dabo until the last 6-7 years.
CGC didn't take over the dregs either. This thing about "the biggest rebuild in history" is ridiculous and no wonder Tech has alienated its most successful coach since 1990. A close win against a bad Duke team is still a win. But the stupid things he says are getting old.
