Columbia, SC (WLTX) --- Steve Spurrier likes to refer to this time of year as "Talking Season". It's that point in the calendar spring practice ends and the preseason begins.
Talking season is just about over as USC will hold its first preseason practice on August 1 at 7:15 p.m. in a workout that will be open to the public.
Spurrier hosted his annual media golf outing at Cobblestone Park in Blythewood. For the HBC, it's his 10th time hitting the links with the media in what will be one of his final trips to the golf course before practice begins and the clubs go in the closet.
The all-time winningest coach at USC says he always planned to be at Carolina for at least eight or nine years because he always had an eye on being the all-time winningest coach. At the time, that mark was 64 wins by Rex Enright. Now there is a new standard as Spurrier has hit 77 wins at USC in his nine years on the field.
