As Spurrier prepares for this weekend's much anticipated match-up between the Gators and the Gamecocks he reflects on his memories of coaching at Florida in a revealing conversation about playing his former team and alma mater.
Steve Spurrier Quote (on still being an icon in Florida)
"I appreciate it and I think I certainly had a special relationship with just about all the Gator fans. There are some that are glad I'm not there – which is fine. I can't make everybody in the world happy, but there are certainly some that I hopefully had a good relationship with and hopefully they'll pull for South Carolina. And when we play Florida…they'll pull for Florida of course. I think most of it's like that and that's the way it should be."
