Steve Spurrier wore great disguise to Florida-Georgia game
Steve Spurrier remains a national treasure, and the former SEC coached proved that with his attendance at the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party on Saturday.
Spurrier is a college football legend, so he attracts plenty of attention wherever he goes. Knowing that, the 76-year-old tried to fly under the radar at the Florida-Georgia game in Jacksonville. He wore what he called a disguise.

We have our doubts that it worked.
Spurrier was the head coach at Duke from 1987-1989, but that is certainly not what he is known for. He went from Duke to Florida, where he led the Gators to a national championship in 1996. Spurrier also coached at South Carolina for more than a decade.
Spurrier can’t have been happy with what he saw on Saturday, as the Gators lost 34-7. Georgia is the top-ranked team in the country, but fans were hoping Florida would put up more of a fight. Perhaps what Spurrier recently said about his former team is true.
