If not for Randall getting loose in 2010, Steve Spurrier would own a perfect 20-0 record against the Kentucky Wildcats. Instead, the Ol’ Ball Coach is a measly 19-1 against the Cats. No current college football coach has won more games against one team than Spurrier over the University of Kentucky Wildcats. Good for him.…
