I’m in the midst of doing a post about how close the final BCS poll really was, and I’m looking over the voting in the Coaches’ Poll when I see it.
Spurrier voted Florida number 2.
Every other SEC coach put Florida number one, including Croom, Fulmer, Miles, Richt and Tuberville. Bowden had Florida number one. Cristobal of FIU and Schnellenberger of FAU had the Gators number one. Even Mack Brown put Florida first.
But not Spurrier.
It wasn’t like he didn’t have a frame of reference here beyond his Florida ties.
What frame of reference? Well I would suggest 56-6, the worst loss of his career. Or how about those 519 yards against his defense? Or the measly 173 yards by his offense?
Methinks someone is jealous of having his legacy eclipsed.
