This offseason we will count down various topics from Monday through Friday, bringing you the top five of the important and definitely some not so important issues in college football. It's the Doc Five, every week until we will thankfully have actual games to discuss.
COACHES WHO COULD PROBABLY USE A BIG SEASON
No. 5, STEVE SPURRIER
This week's list is not running down what coaches are on the "hot seat." Some might be coaching for their job in 2014, including the coach who will be at the top of this list (we don't assume anyone will be surprised when we name him Friday). But some on the list are under some pressure to have a big season and are in no danger of being fired, including Steve Spurrier.
Spurrier is a godsend for South Carolina. He has done an insanely good job with the Gamecocks, building a program to heights it has never been to before. South Carolina won 11 games each of the last two seasons, something it had never accomplished once before. He's one of the best college coaches ever. The Gamecocks are lucky to have him.
But, this seems like a turning point season for the Gamecocks. South Carolina seems like the "very good but not quite elite" program in the SEC. But it has a chance to take the next step and change that perception this season.Read More »from Doc Five: Coaches who could probably use a big season – No. 5, Steve Spurrier
