Spurrier can’t hide glee


Gator fans were still buzzing about the basketball team’s back-to-back-to-back national titles in basketball and football Tuesday morning.

That includes the one in Columbia, S.C., who was getting ready to tee it up when he called both Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley and basketball coach Billy Donovan to offer his congratulations.

“That’s an amazing basketball team,” said South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier in a cell phone call to The Sun. “Billy has done an unbelievable job with them.”

The former UF ball coach slipped in a “we” when twisting the knife into Ohio State, which lost both the football and basketball championships to Florida.

“We’ve kind of turned Ohio State into Runner-up U., haven’t we?” said Spurrier, a Gator alumnus.
