And you thought Urban Meyer-Lane Kiffin was bizarre?

Try Will Muschamp and Nancy Berry - the mayor of College Station, Texas.

In response to Muschamp's comment during one of recent Gator Gatherings, the mayor of College Station, which is home to new SEC member Texas A&M, has made a video.

You heard, it, a video.

Muschamp was asked about the Gators' first trip to College Station to open SEC play in September and he responded by saying:  “You ever been to College Station?” “It’ll be the only time you go.”

New Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin has already fired back that Muschamp should just worry about his own team. Now, According to a press release from the Bryan-College Station Convention and Visitors Bureau, Berry has made a video "as a good-natured response to Florida head football coach Will Muschamp’s jabs at visiting College Station during the much anticipated game between the Gators and Texas A&M Aggies.''

In the video she offers evidence that Muschamp has enjoyed visiting College Station and Texas A&M many times during his tenure as a Big 12 coach.

“We are really excited to host this year’s game against the Gators, and we like that a little friendly rivalry has already started,” Shannon Overby, Executive Director of the Bryan-College Convention & Visitors Bureau said. “There will be a lot of fans here to support both teams, so we are confident that Coach Muschamp will enjoy his stay.”
