    Tell any SOW friends that some Gators know who SOW beat to win their first MNC.

    But, EVERY Nole knows who Florida beat to win their first MNC!

    True story....

    Coach Spurrier gave a talk to our local Quarterback Club (Volusia County) after the '95 season.....and that epic beatdown by Nebraska.

    During the Q & A session - I raised my hand and asked him "Why didn't you go to the shotgun with Danny when it was clear the Huskers were too big and too fast for our O-Line?"

    He replied something to the effect that "It wasn't something they had planned to do."

    Well....I'm glad he finally took my "advice".

    :)

    Another true story Bazza; from a friend that was a backup on that FSU team. BB told his defense (paraphrased) before the game in Tally that he didnt care how many penalties they had; he wanted number 7 out of the game.

    His persona was all a facade. Not unlike that dump they play in.

    If you can't name the guy when he was just a backup from nearly 20 years ago, then no offense but I think your story is a bunch of you-know-what.

    I understand, but if you're going to claim a man told his players to intentionally injure an opposing player, you really should be prepared to provide some proof.

    To an anonymous person on here? Yeah, right.
    Besides, I wasnt there so its second hand anyway.
    Just get over the fact that seemingly good folks do or say really bad things to win a game.
    Look at footage of his interviews talking about number 7 and what he meant to our offense and its not so unbelievable.

    Just saying. "My buddy who played for them said this and that.." might be convenient on a message board, but it sounds like hogwash without a name. It's rude and unethical to make an accusation like that about someone without real evidence.

    I never made an accusation.
    Just passing along a story from a player who was there.
    Not really concerned with what you perceive as rude or unethical.
    Besides we got the ultimate payback in the rematch!
    Cheers MH34!
