Florida honoring 1993 team tomorrow because of course

One of Kentucky’s most painful losses to Florida happened in 1993, so, it’s only fitting that the Gators will honor that team during tomorrow night’s game.

As part of their silver-anniversary celebration, the 1993 Florida team will be introduced between the first and second quarters. Steve Spurrier, the Gators’ coach then and an ambassador for the program now, just can’t wait to hug his boys:

I’m sure it’s not a coincidence that those highlights start with Danny Wuerffel’s throw to Chris Doering to beat Kentucky, or that this reunion is taking place during the Kentucky game.

In an interview with 1010XL Radio in Jacksonville earlier this week, Doering, now with the SEC Network, admitted even he felt bad for Kentucky last year after the Cats let a monumental victory slip away.

“I’ve been forced to take a little bit more unbiased look at it, doing the TV stuff, and I got to be honest with you, I feel for the Kentucky fans,” Doering said. “Last year they had Florida on the ropes. A Florida team that was not very good on the ropes and they chose not to cover a wide receiver two separate times and it ultimately cost them the game.

“I do feel for them, but obviously as a Florida alum I hope the streak continues, but it’s like walking by a roulette machine, where they are showing all the blacks in a row and you put your money up there thinking it has to be red sooner or later. That’s the feeling I have, I just hope it doesn’t happen this weekend.”

Well, I hope it does, especially since the entire 1993 team will have a front row seat.

    If i were in Florida’s place, I’d put that celebration on the game with the highest likelihood of winning. I can’t see how any other team would have a higher likelihood given the statistics. I’m going to be mature and not take that personal.

      But, on the same thought, it would be pretty sweet revenge if we happen to win…lol.

    If Doering had dropped that ball and we won the game, the losses since then would still make up the longest active losing streak in the nation at 24 games. That just proves how nuts this streak is.

    This could be the perfect way to end this stupid streak. On their field, and with the 1993 team on hand to see it go down. Now if we can just not beat ourselves this time…
