Steve Spurrier to the College Football HOF...again?

While the abrupt retirement of South Carolina’s Head Football Coach, Steve Spurrier, caught everyone by surprise, we here at immediately wondered what that would mean for the College Football Hall of Fame.  It did not take us long to find out.

According to Dennis Dodd at CBS Sports, Spurrier will become immediately eligible and has a chance to enter the College Football Hall of Fame as soon as 2017.  Spurrier, 70, is already in the College Football Hall of Fame as a player, an accolade he received in 1996 as a former Heisman Trophy winner.

As a College Head Coach, Steve Spurrier has a 228-89-2 Record, a National Championship in 1996 with the Florida Gators and is the winningest coach in Gamecocks history.

Should Spurrier enter the College Football Hall of Fame he would become the fourth person to enter as both a player and a coach.

Although we here at do not currently rank those who are not in the College Football Hall of Fame, this is a scenario we will be watching closely!

Best College Football Rivalries

Anybody who follows football at all knows that there is nothing quite as exciting as college football rivalries. The adrenaline is pumping not only for the teams playing, but also for the fans watching on the sidelines or at home. No matter which college team you root for when it comes time for those matches against your team’s all-time rivals, it is “game on.”
