Steve Spurrier gives his take on thought of Florida-Georgia leaving Jacksonville

Steve Spurrier likes the Georgia-Florida game the way it is, thank you very much.

As relayed by Dawgs247’s Rusty Mansell on Wednesday, the former Gators coach spoke on SiriusXM about the hypothetical of the Florida-Georgia game leaving Jacksonville, Fla. The buzz started when ESPN’s Lee Corso said he would like the Gators-Bulldogs series to be played on campus sites.

Spurrier gave a simple answer to the issue.

Let’s hope Spurrier is right.

Part of the Florida-Georgia game’s appeal is all the buzz that comes with The World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party. Sure, either Ben Hill Griffin Stadium or Sanford Stadium would rock if those settings hosted the rivalry game.

But there’s something to be said for familiarity. And given Florida’s recent success in the series — the Gators have won three consecutive games — it’s no surprise that the Gators would like things just the way they are.
