South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier has some extra incentive for winning this season.
The university honored the head coach’s 10th season with the team by installing an 85-foot banner of him that hangs in front of Williams-Brice Stadium. Spurrier has yet to see the massive sign of himself, but he was quick to voice the one concern he has about it.
During a press conference on Sunday, Spurrier told reporters he hopes his Gamecocks keep winning at home because all 85-feet of him could get covered with eggs if they don’t.
“I don’t want people coming by there and throwing eggs at it or something like that,” Spurrier said. “And that could happen. If we go bad, that could happen, as we all know.”
After going undefeated at home in both the 2012 and 2013 seasons, South Carolina owns the nation’s longest home winning streak at 18 games, so Spurrier likely won’t be losing any sleep over this matter.
