    The guy leaves UF in the lurch for NFL money, then comes back to the SEC to coach an Eastern Division team. Now he zings us. Yet he's a true Gator and Meyer's a scumbag? Unreal.

    Machen. Think you get it though, otherwise you would have argued it past the mispelling of his name. ;)

    The man hasn't won a significant title in over a decade. Meanwhile, we have two NC's and another Heisman. His "zing" is more like a BB gun shooting a car.

    I think if SOS took a dump at the 50 yrd line of BHG stadium, some here would want it bronzed and put in the trophy case.

    Verne Lundquist said SOS told him,"Why do you keep talking about me coaching Florida? I've had success here at South Carolina." I think he's moved on.

    I appreciate what both SOS and UM did for the Gators and root for both of them most of the time, but neither one is Gator coach now. I think SOS is not quite the saint and UM not quite the devil some make them out to be. I just want the Gators to get back to the place where they could embarrass both of them easily.

    Wait, did he do that? Was it big?

    But serious, he's a legend and I look forward to the day when he is no longer coaching USCe so he can come back onto Florida Field and do Mr. Two Bits for a Florida State game.

    Yes, Spurrier has never won at the game of politics like Mr. Bowden. And the BCS loves politics. Again, SC is the only team to beat three in the top 15 for the BCS this year. One lucky bounce of a ball and they're in Atlanta.

    What has Meyer done for UF before and after coaching here? Oh, this oughta be good.

    And BTW, how are those Redskins doing since he left? Snyder has made that once proud franchise a money making joke.

    No I didn't get it since Machen wasn't the UF president in 2002 when Spurrier left.

    Mostly wrong in the intital and final premisses, GS, and the implied conclusion.

    But don't let that stop you.

    Spurrier left when it was time
    Meyer left a year after it was time.
    Who left us in worse shape?

    Some of y'all seem genuinely offended, haha. Chill out. Just good humored trash talk from an 'ol buddy.

    There probably is a line that would be crossed at some point. But I think everything that comes from him is pretty good natured. I don't now about his relationship with the athletic program, but I doubt he holds anything against the fans. People take his words way too mean-hearted.

    He reminds me some of Mohammed Ali in the sense that he takes a lot of verbal jabs to keep up interest in the sport. I remember his wife saying years ago that he has a tendency to jab people more if he respects them, at least in the case of Fulmer. I think he just likes to put on a good show sometimes.

    Spurrier's a Gator traitor until he stops being so spiteful and leaves USCe. You didn't see Meyer take a job with another SEC East team, did you?

    Meyer can barely handle the heat in the Big Ten, where they can't even count teams correctly.

    On the Spurrier burn scale, that's about a 1 out if 10.

    Similar to Missouri and TAMU being in the "Southeast." Organizations are reluctant to change well-known brand names.

    I reminded the SC fans that think HBC's zingers are great, that they forgave him for all the whippings he and FL gave them in the 90s (I was at the 1995 63-7).
