Dameon Pierce on Florida being 15-point underdogs to Alabama: 'They're being nice to us, ain't they?'
Dameon Pierce is not only a great running back; he’s a great interview, too.
On Tuesday after Florida’s practice, Pierce met with the media and had several funny quips about Alabama.
First, he said he doesn’t get tired of the questions about the Crimson Tide, saying they’ve earned the respect since they’re the No. 1 team in the country:
Does Dameon Piece get tired of hearing about/getting asked about Bama?
"Naw they earned that. They're the No. 1 team in the country."

As for the point spread for the game (DraftKings has Alabama as 15.5-point favorites), Pierce joked that the oddsmakers must like the Gators, since Alabama is beating everyone by 20-plus points:
#Gators RB Dameon Pierce, aka Professor Personality, is having huge fun with this point spread: "Only 15 points? They're being nice to us, ain't they? I mean, Bama's beating everybody by 20-plus."
