Tilly, you've written 16,691 posts. I've never agreed with one more than this. I don't know whether UF would have been as successful had he stayed. I don't know whether UF would have wont more titles or not. All I know is that I never had as much fun watching football as I did when Steve Spurrier was coaching teams I loved, both the Bandits and the Gators. I wish he hadn't left; I wish he had been invited back when the job was open. I'm not getting into a who was better argument, I just know I had a lot more fun as a fan when he was coaching my team than I ever had before or since.
