Muschamp grew up a big Herschel Walker fan in Rome, Georgia. His dad then moved to Gainesville, Florida, where Muschamp began pulling for the Gators.
In 1980, Walker ran for 1,616 yards as an 18-year-old freshman with 238 of those yards coming in a season-defining 26-21 win for Georgia over Florida.
Whenever the game is replayed on the SEC Network, Muschamp makes his kids watch just for the sheer history.
“I cried that day the Gators lost. I was devastated,” Muschamp said.
Jeez, man. I don’t know I’da told that one.
