* Spurrier said Stephen Garcia “has behaved very well.” He also said there will be a preseason quarterback competition between Garcia and Connor Shaw.
* Asked about raising academic standards for recruits, Spurrier said: “For some reason we want to make it more and more difficult on some of these young men that come from difficult backgrounds and difficult academic settings. … I think the requirements are pretty good where they are right now.”
* “How much longer do I plan on coaching? That’s a good question. I always say four or five more. Maybe I’ll start saying three or four more. Health-wise I feel about like I did 10 years ago or so. And we’ve got the best players since I’ve been there. Our program, I really believe, is headed in the right direction. If it was going bad and we were getting beat, I’d be gone.”
