  • This was the first Thursday workout in Columbia, working toward Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday schedule. As such, it was more spur of the moment late Wednesday and not widely promoted.
  • The extreme lack of heat had those present asking about F3 cold weather Gear.
  • We renamed wide-leg squats “Jungle Boi’s” in honor of South Carolina Gamecock defensive back DJ “Jungle Boi” Swearinger who, after completely and legally blowing up Clemson’s Andre Ellington in their game last week  squatted in front of him in a flagrant taunt. The squat drew a 15-yarder, but Ellington did not return to the game and no other balls were thrown in Swearinger’s AO for the rest of the night. When Jungle Boi came off the field, the Head Ball Coach asked him to explain the taunt. “I just wanted to show him my grill, coach.” (True story from a source next to Spurrier at the time).  “Jungle Boi” squats must be done in sets of 36.

    1. We have been doing weekdays on Tuesdays 5:45-6:30. This morning (Thursday) we went off at the same time. This will remain the same for the foreseeable future. All Workouts are at Dreher High School.
