10:36 AM ET 06.02 | As feuds go, this one was pretty tame. It barely deserves to be called that, even. But Will Muschamp's comments about College Station, Texas, have prompted a response from the mayor. Speaking to the Polk County Gator Club on May 15, the Florida coach was asked about the Gators' first trip to Texas A&M. He has been asked this at virtually every Gator Gathering this spring. I know, because I've heard the same response about the Aggies' great SEC-like atmosphere plenty of times. But this time, Muschamp said, "You ever been to College Station? It'll be the only time you go." Of course, Muschamp's comment led to new Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin being asked about it. His response? Sumlin told the San Antonio Express-News, "He needs to worry about his own team." Again, still pretty ridiculous. Urban Meyer and Lane Kiffin would laugh at that "feud." Really, just to underline, it's really not much of a story. Until now. College Station mayor Nancy Barry has poked some fun at Muschamp with this video

LMFAO!!! Muschamp stated: "You ever been to College Station? It'll be the only time you go.". Hell has any player on the Florida roster over the last 20 years, been to College Station"???? Muschamp must realize that the Gators haven't left the State for a OOC game in the last 20 years, now he has no choice!!!!!

I should have said that, Muschamp has no choice but to take his Florida team to College Station, as A&M is part of the SEC now.

Very very stupid report. The Fla. coach knows that over half of the SeC schools are in small towns and all have tradition.

Still, WM is still right. It's the only time anyone other than an aggy would ever go to CS

And, in the "stupid is as stupid does" category, the Big XII will pay out $19,000,000 per team this year from its 1st and 2nd tier TV contracts. In addition, member teams can peddle their 3rd tier rights for whatever anyone will pay ($15,000,000 for Texas, roughly $9,000,000 for Kansas, not sure about the other schools).How much will the College Station Sheep Molesters and Mizzou Whinybutts get? How much will they net after exit fees?........... Moving on to current conference rivals, I heard a new Brokeback Mountaineer joke yesterday. Ran into a WV alum. Folks out there are convinced they will hang 60 points on Zero U and win the game by 4 TDs. Punch line of the joke is that he was dead serious.

And to top it off, aTm and Mizzou don't get a share from the sec this year. The 20.1M they split is only amongst the 12 teams.
