Two of the biggest coaching personalities in the SEC in the last decade made a wager on the LSU-Florida game in a social media conversation that began several days ago.
Les Miles and Steve Spurrier launched into a back-and-forth throughout the week about the bet, the stakes and how it would play out. On Saturday night, after Florida won 27-19 thanks to a late LSU interception returned for a touchdown, they had one more exchange.

In what amounted to a commercial for Dos Equis, the former coaches settled the wager with Kevin Negandhi as the moderator.
“Surprised,” Spurrier said. “Not the slightest. I will tell you this, the only surprising thing about today is when Coach Miles dons that Gator visor. … I bet him if the Gators win, he’d have to wear my visor for a week. Hey Les, now’s a good time to put that visor on.”
Miles, as he rolls his eyes, said, “All right. I would never wear half a hat. Can I take this thing off yet?
Spurrier replied, “Take it off? You just put it on, and besides, it looks pretty good on you.”
