A few weeks when Georgia coach Mark Richt sent his team on the field to celebrate its first touchdown against Florida, South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier joked that the way to counteract that was to send some of his third-stringers on the field, start a fight and get some Georgia players throw out. That didn’t sit well with former Georgia Heisman Trophy winner Herschel Walker. He told Atlanta Journal-Constitution columnist Terence Moore, “That’s totally insulting for a coach of his stature to say something so stupid. So my question I say to him is, if he’s got that much guts, why don’t he step in a ring against me? You don’t say something that silly, because you’re going to get somebody hurt. Georgia was punished, because that’s a penalty. They didn’t go out to hurt anyone. (Spurrier) talks about hurting somebody. How much guts do you have? Step in a ring with me, and then we’ll see.”
When Spurrier asked on Wednesday about Walker’s callout, he said he hadn’t heard about them and had no comment.
