Here we are, just days away from October and we’ve only had one firing. Okay, technically speaking June Jones (Wink! Wink!) resigned at SMU but are you buying that story? Of course, you’re not. Just like you shouldn’t be buying the story that Will Muschamp is teetering on the verge of a firing.

Steve Spurrier has been accused of many things in his career. Running up the score, being a jerk, being a lousy NFL coach (well that’s actually true), but the one thing people love him the most for…telling it like it is.
