Are You Ready For Steve Spurrier on Twitter


There’s a lot of things over the years that people find hard to believe: global warming, w.m.d. in Iraq, that a pass interference call wasn’t made against Dallas, that Dez Bryant wasn’t making a football move against Green Bay, or that Marshawn Lynch didn’t get the ball in the Super Bowl.  But what may top all of those has actually happened today – Head Ball Coach Steve Spurrier has a twitter account.  Yes, you read that right, a twitter account for the 70-year old coach of the South Carolina Gamecocks.
