COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

University of South Carolina Head Football Coach Steve Spurrier is used to making headlines and creating a buzz on the internet.

This week it was because of controversy surrounding his weekly TV show.

The Head Ball Coach requested that Fox Sports South not replay The Steve Spurrier Show, which originally aired Sunday morning following USC's win at Central Florida.

The show has also been taken off of the university's website. Spurrier says he wanted the show pulled because he was too negative towards the team after the hard fought win over the Knights.

"Well, I guess we don't jerk a TV show too often but I was way too negative afterwards," Spurrier said Wednesday evening after practice. "I don't mean to be so negative towards some of our players, some of our coaches that coach secondary, including myself. I try to always include myself when we are not coaching well so we decided not show the thing. I guess they show it two or three times, I didn't even know it. I thought they only showed it once, which I watched, I watched it Sunday morning and it wasn't any big deal. It was like most of my shows I thought, but I was too negative in it."

But some people who watched the show thought Spurrier's behavior was a little odd. Some national and local websites have questioned Spurrier's condition on the broadcast, specifically around 12:00 and 16:00 marks of the YouTube video below. (Mobile users: Click here to watch)

On Wednesday morning, when a reporter from The State Newspaper asked him if he was impaired. Spurrier replied, "I hope not."

He added he was frustrated and tired following Carolina's 28-25 win in Orlando.
