Phil Fulmer - Selected Quotes From Media Day

When asked if he had any advice for any of the new coaches in the league this year, Fulmer began by saying ...

Fulmer: "I am not going to give any advice to Steve (Spurrier). (Laughs) I already said what I think of Steve. What an incredible coach and what a great job he's done, he will do a great job for South Carolina."

When asked about what he expects from Steve Spurrier at South Carolina this year given the Gamecocks current personnel ...

Fulmer: "Every year -- I don't have a crystal ball to really know all their personnel and what will happen, but I am sure Steve will have them ready to play and they will have a good team. We have got so much to do before we get to them. We don't spend a whole lot of time on them in the off-season not because they are not a threat but we usually try to concentrate on the first four games that we play."

When asked what his reaction was to the news that Spurrier was coming back into the Eastern Division of the league and whether or not he thinks Spurrier will be easier to beat at South Carolina ...

FULMER: "We didn't beat him enough in there. We beat him the last two out of the last four or something like that, I can't remember exactly. When I first heard he was coming back I said, oh, crap, something like that (laughter), something like that. He's an interesting personality. Dynamic personality, and I think he very much knows that he has got a real demanding job in front of him to do that, but if anybody can do it, he can."
