Things will be a bit duller in college football with the retirement of Steve Spurrier. His press conferences never were dull.
ESPN.com’s Alex Scarborough compiled a list of some of Spurrier’s best quotes.
Jabbing at Tennessee …
On Tennessee missing out on the Sugar Bowl during his Florida years: “You can’t spell Citrus without U-T.”
On Peyton Manning: “I know why Peyton came back for his senior year. He wanted to be a three-time star of the Citrus Bowl.”
Jabbing at Florida State …
“You know what FSU stands for, don’t you? Free Shoes University.”
On FSU players hitting Danny Wuerffel late: “He’s like a New Testament person. He gets slapped up side the face, and turns the other cheek and says, ‘Lord, forgive them for they know not what they’re doing.’ I’m probably more of an Old Testament guy. You spear our guy in the earhole, we think we’re supposed to spear you in the earhole. That’s kind of where we’re a little different.”
