South Carolina football coach Steve Spurrier provides his players with absolutely no leeway when it comes to domestic violence. During an interview on ESPN's Mike & Mike in the Morning show today, he revealed that he tells his players they will be kicked off the team if they run into any domestic violence issues.
But Spurrier seems to be a bit more forgiving when it comes to players smoking marijuana—and he's even got a great name for his pot policy. While explaining his stance on domestic violence today, he spoke about it.
"You can smoke pot and get lectured on it—three pots and you're finished—and we have our rules for all our other things," he said. "We haven't had anything happen [with domestic violence] in about eight years now, so I think it's a good rule and, if you enforce it, it's really helpful."
We love both polices. The domestic violence one because too many coaches turn a blind eye when one of their players runs into issues, and the marijuana one because "three pots and you're finished" just sound like good words to live by.
