I was there when Terry Bowden surprised him twice in two years. When Mike DuBose shocked him twice in 64 days. When Tom Osborne taught him a lesson by 38 points in the national championship game.
The Choke at Doak, when he turned a 31-3 lead over Bobby Bowden into a 31-31 gag?
During the best years of his wonderful life, I saw some of the worst moments of Steve Spurrier’s career up close and personal.
Funny thing, though.
