Mel Brooks once famously explained the difference between comedy and tragedy. "Tragedy", the legendary writer explained, "is when I cut my finger." "Comedy" he continued, "is when you fall into an open sewer and die."

And so it is when Steve Spurrier turns his famously biting sarcasm on unsuspecting victims. The Head Ball Coach was the speaker this afternoon at the kickoff luncheon for the Independence Bowl in Shreveport. He didn’t miss the chance to give the assembled Louisianans his thoughts on the Pelican State’s main college football program.

Yup. It’s kind of funny when it happens to other people. Never change, you crotchety old so-and-so. Never change.
