He's losing his edge. Steve Spurrier didn't cast his traditional vote for Duke at #25 this year because Grant Teaff, head of the American Football Coaches Association, asked him not to.
The kids are coming up from behind...and they are giggling, which caused Spurrier to dismiss his team from practices yesterday. It's not his fault, though, as he is the diminished Korean-cloned form of 2002 Spurrier, after all.
