Spurrier made everyone laugh by insulting Kentucky, Paul Gattis provided the details on his blog. Great stuff as always from Spurrier.

Tommy Tuberville and Auburn fans have been sick of Nick Saban for months. The Tigers have lived in Saban’s shadow for the last seven months, and the SEC Media Days saw the same thing—the Tigers fielded lots of Saban questions.

Coach Rich Brooks boasted about how his team accomplished his goals last season and that was getting into the post-season. It is Kentucky, I really don’t think more needs to be said. Making the post-season is a good accomplishment and who knows what is next for the program?
