It sounds to me like he was blowing off some steam from a situation where someone above him probably pressured him to use up a roster spot to keep her on the team even though she wasn't any good just because she was a girl.
I really don't see how saying that she was a terrible player is the thing that's being blown up and got him on administrative leave as opposed to the multiple rape allegations...
Saying a player is terrible vs. rape....seems to me one of those should be worthy of getting your coach put on administrative leave, and it's definitely not commenting on a player's skill. Whether it was out of context or not, coaches say players are terrible all the time. When Spurrier was at UF, he must've called at least 100 guys terrible.
The thing is, it was really not the time to be saying something like that.....It was tottally boneheaded on his part. His team is undergoing alelgations of Rape and you come out and say something like that, thats horrible....Shame on him
