    Re: Did anyone attending the BAMA vs LSU notice the chant against Coach

    If Saban had gone straight from LSU to here I could see them being mad at him. But he went to the NFL and then when it didn't work out he took the best job that was open at the time. Do Florida fans despise Steve Spurrier?

    I'm not sure even they can explain it. UF still loves Steve Spurrier. Georgia Tech still loves Bobby Ross and even Bill Curry. Notre Dame still loves Lou Holtz. They all did very well for their schools and left the programs in much better shape than how they found it.

    It's not like a Franchione or Kiffen deal, where a coach just leaves a program that's on the ropes in the middle of the night.

    I mean I can kind of understand it. He left them when they were flying high and then came back to what they consider their biggest rival. Since doing that he has beaten them several times most notably beating the crap out of them in a national championship. I would say get over it but the success that Saban has had especially against them the past two years has to just reopen all of those wounds.

    Their attachment to him was entirely different from the attachment Bama fans have to him. Saban would probably be the first to acknowledge it. If they had coaches like Thomas, Wade, Bryant and the like in their past, it would be different,but they don't. As I pointed out earlier, I've never heard a Bama fan call him "Nick." They thought they owned a piece of him. They didn't. The difference is that we realize no one does...

    So lemme get this straight: some drunk college kids at a college football game starting chanting obscenities in unison?? I ain't buying that!

    Whatever it was, I'm sure it was hilarious in the moment...to them, anyways.

    AJ and TJ shut up the "Over-rated" cheer.

    Fla still honors Spurrier

    The UF fans I know hate Spurrier. And the Dolphins fans I know TRULY hate Saban.

    May get banned but isn't it called "the neck chant"?

    Funny that LSU considers us their biggest rival. Do we consider them our biggest rival? I'm not so sure. I still like beating that cow college.

    How could you not consider LSU our biggest rival after these past few years. This matchup has turned into the elite football game unrivaled by any other.

    (shruggs) Maybe ... but I still feel like we own them for the most part. The fact that they really really hate us when most of us don't hate them helps me to come to that conclusion.
