Steve Spurrier, Another Quitter & Case In Point
Unity Consciousness #513



Steve Spurrier is a person who had a job.
Chances are, he was born just like the rest of us.
Steve Spurrier was not a godsend.
If he was, then so are all of us.

Context is necessary to help us catch ourselves from making exceptions, excuses and rules for some that don't apply to others. There should be no Steve Spurrier rules just as there should be no Donald Trump rules or American rules, etc.

As A Coach

Whatever accomplishments and accolades Steve Spurrier deserves should not be diminished by how he finished no more than performance in most things should be judged solely upon the end result or one play.

It is not difficult to understand that achievement by anyone in any way is always a team sport. Football just happens to be one of the most obvious of obvious examples.

A job as a leader (coach, preacher) is one thing. A job as a supporter (player, parishioner) is different. Leaders have much greater responsibility in all their doings in all ways always.

As a coach, the ability to perform that job and maintain that job depends on everything everyone else does. Coaching decisions affect everyone. No decision can be made for personal reasons – to join the team, to guide the team or to leave the team.

As A Person

In civilizations, who people are at work is the same as who they are at home. The person is the person. Since this optimal approach does not apply in this society (it is discouraged and seen as weakness and stupidity), neither does a coaching resume' apply to this section.

In other words, character as a coach and person are not necessarily the same things no more than a person's work persona is their true persona.

Steve Spurrier made a commitment and reneged on that commitment to self and to multitudes of others. Whatever the circumstances, he was the head coach. A player quitting is one thing, an assistant coach quitting is another thing and a head coach quitting is very different.

It is unfair, disrespectful and selfish for a leader to quit without a step-down adjustment process for a replacement and for all others to make adjustments and decisions. It stops being about the leader once the leader joins the team and accepts the role, rights and responsibilities of being a leader. Steve Spurrier forgot or never knew that a leader is a supporter and servant of those whom are led. A leader doesn't get to return to “it's about me” type thinking without going through the proper process of separation and succession so that what you were a part of to help establish and build does not suffer because of one person, especially the head coach. Of course Steve Spurrier had an ungrateful boss. Most of us do. Of course Steve Spurrier had the boosters/alumni to deal with, we all do – they're called family, friends and Ancestors.

I'm not sure who these sports analysts, columnists and football players are that are coming to Steve Spurrier's rescue of his own character assassination, but they have overlooked the fact that Steve Spurrier just told a whole lot of people to go to hell, it's all about me, about how I feel and about what I want and it doesn't matter how hard anyone else has worked or the commitment they made to me and this football program and this school and this community, etc. Dealing with disapproval is part of the job Steve. Do you not practice what you preach? Getting no love is part of being a head coach and is not a significant enough reason for taking the nearest exit. It is better to be fired than to quit on the team. It is better to endure a losing season than to quit thinking and behaving like a winner.

Just like great coaches, great people will face, deal with and overcome adversity. Who is the real Steve Spurrier, apart from the media-hype? We shall soon see more of this unveiling. Is quitting going to be his last and most memorable play of the game or will it be acknowledgment and apology? Is there any more room under the rug to reason away more ridiculous behavior?


The media (people with character-matching jobs) is using bogus reasoning, as usual, and blackwash to try to make Steve Spurrier white as snow.
For some of the same reasons as always. Just like others, Steve Spurrier wants to clean up his self-supposed image.
1. Legacy (pride cometh before us all)
2. College Football Hall of Fame
3. An NFL job before the end of this season as the result of a made-for-consumption drama of an NFL coach not being able to fulfill their duties.
