Head coaches do not like to talk about their accomplishments. They always like to credit the team for their success.

Tonight, South Carolina Gamecocks head football coach Steve Spurrier has recorded his 200th Southeastern Conference win. He joined SEC coaching legends Bear Bryant and Vince Dooley in the 82-year history of the conference.
