We were invited to “An Evening with Jesse Palmer” hosted by ESPN and SunTrust at the Boca Raton home of entrepreneur Marc Bell.
The media had a chance to speak to Palmer one-on-one and ask him questions. Here is what he dished out about his time playing for the Florida Gators as a quarterback and his predictions for the upcoming season:
Q: What was it like playing for Steve Spurrier?
A: Amazing. He’s a legend. We won a lot of games.
Q: Thoughts on Spurrier’s visors?
A: Fan because it has sort of made him iconic like Bear Bryant’s hat.
Q: Have you seen Spurrier since he has begun working for the Gators again?
A: I called a couple of games last year, so I have been back to Gainesville. But I ran into Steve at the national championship game.
Q: Predictions for the upcoming Gator season?
A: I think the Gators can win the East again. There’s a pretty big divide between the East and the West. The big question for the Gators is quarterback.
