There Is No Giggling in Front of Clone Spurrier

We know that the real Steve Spurrier, on his way to take the reins of the Washington Redskins in 2002 and become the most successful college-to-pro coach ever, died in a plane crash somewhere in the pine barrens of eastern North Carolina. ↵

↵We also know that Daniel Snyder, stuck for a new coach and wary of being further embarrassed at the dogmeat hash he'd made of the once-proud franchise, had Spurrier's DNA sampled and sent to South Korea, where he was cloned ... poorly. ↵

↵

↵That Spurrier, the diminished clone of Spurrier past, has coached on despite having less than half the glitz or moxie of Spurrier Past. Despite a mediocre tenure with the Redskins, Clone Spurrier not only snagged a large contract with South Carolina, but also managed to continue Spurrier's pursuit of a zero handicap on a daily basis. ↵

↵To the untrained eye, the differences are unnoticeable. Occasionally, though, there are slips that let experts in on the secret, like dismissing your entire team during a practice after one person actually hits another on the football field. ↵

↵
↵⇥Steve Spurrier ended South Carolina's practice early soon after linebacker Eric Norwood's hard hit on receiver Moe Brown during a passing drill ... Spurrier says the worst part of the incident was the players giggling after Brown got hit. ↵
↵As you can see in the above photo, the only thing Clone Spurrier hates more than missing a tee time is giggling. And it’s our understanding that Clone Spurrier also had a 3:30 tee time today, too. Some characteristics made it through the cloning process just fine.↵
