Steve Spurrier has some fun at Florida's expense; also jabs Florida State

Steve Spurrier loves to zing other football programs when he has an opportunity to do so. Remember the one about Tennessee ( you can't spell Citrus without UT) and Florida State (FSU=Free Shoes University).

This time Spurrier took a shot at his old school Florida. The former Heisman Trophy winner and national championship winning coaching legend had a one liner directed at the Gators.

"Somebody told me the Gators are going to be home for the holidays," zinged Spurrier. "Maybe we can get a bunch of Gators who'll come to our ballgame, fill up the stands … and root for the Gamecocks."

Spurrier also took the time to sneak in a jab at Florida State (again), when the questioned about Jadeveon Clowney's speeding ticket.

“I didn't know Jadeveon's car that could go that fast. He doesn't have a pretty car like those FSU guys used to drive.”

Spurrier turned the Capital One Bowl press conference into his own little laugh fest.

Even though Spurrier  has aged and mellowed, he still hasn't lost his touch for a good one liner.
