Fans loved this ESPN article today from an interview with Steve Spurrier with several classic quotes, including what seems to be the favorite about not playing Georgia in the second game of the season this year:

"I don't know. I sort of always liked playing them that second game because you could always count on them having two or three key players suspended."
