Steve Spurrier and Bobby Bowden co-owning a home? Not a chance



It's a well-known fact that Florida coach Will Muschamp and Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher co-own a beachhouse together, but in fairness to the two coaches, they were friends and co-owners long before they took over in Gainesville and Tallahassee.

Which prompted a reporter to ask South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier if there was ever a chance that he and former Florida State coach Bobby Bowden would ever have owned some property together back in the 90's when the two programs were nationally-ranked and always in the mix for a national championship? And the rivalry was bitter.

Spurrier's answer. Uh, no.

"I don't think that would have happened,'' Spurrier said.  "We didn't get along as well as they do now, that's for sure.''
