    Great article Spurrier was at the next few games as a fan. It was a very controversial decision and at the end of the day he did what made both the program and himself move on. One of the most liked coaches in the game and understood his players in a way no one else could. Still believe that he should have stayed and announced that he was leaving at the end of the season, but he had his reasons. It gave Shawn Elliott a chance to show his talents (maybe unfair spotlight) and ultimately Will Muschamp an opportunity to reign as top gun for the gamecocks. Spurrier had to know what was coming of the season seeing as they only finished with one win after his departure! It allowed the team to go into a much needed rebuilding phase before before the end of the season. The Gamecocks have been a championship contending team and it didn’t make sense for him to stay and not compete for a title when his previous seasons were sour as well. Having a coach that has the ability to go out and recruit top talent is key in the NCAA and it seemed over the years Spurrier was losing his spark and it’s time to see what Muschamp can drum up with the current roster and the expanding incoming class of recruits.
