Like with many media interviews with Spurrier, at some point during the conversation he talked about his feelings towards Georgia. The 74-year-old Spurrier started off his rhetoric in a modest and respectful tone, perhaps because Herschel was there:
“We couldn’t tell many jokes about Georgia because they were kicking our butts. They beat Florida 15 out of 20 times in the 70s and 80s. So we got a chance to turn it around in the 90s, and so forth.
“A lot of times, those stupid jokes I told – they were just meant for the Gators.”
Lame. I actually respect him less for backing off the bravado.
