So here's some bullshit: According to a report by Jim Romenesko, South Carolina Gamecocks head football coach Steve Spurrier has the power to bully a newspaper into silencing any reporter that he doesn't like.
For years now, Spurrier has had an ongoing, petty feud with The State's Ron Morris. Throughout the course of this feud Spurrier has done plenty of childish things. In 2011 he refused to answer questions at a press conference while Morris was in the room, and in 2012 he responded to one of Morris's more critical columns by threatening to quit. According to Romenesko, that last incident led to Morris being instructed by his bosses to stay out of all of Spurrier's press conferences. He also had to write an apology column.
