The last and only time Georgia and Ohio State met in college football was Jan. 1, 1993 when Kirk Herbstreit was quarterbacking the Buckeyes.

Georgia co-defensive coordinator Will Muschamp also played in that game. And when asked what he remembered, he says he knew it would be a good win for the Dawgs.

“We had a [luncheon] and Herbstreit got up and threw a pass across the room and I knew we had a shot to win," Muschamp smirked. "Make sure he knows I said that.”

The UGA coach's Herbstreit comments began to go viral.

"Lmao this is awesome," a user laughed. "Love coach Muschamp."

"He seems so much happier at UGA," a fan commented. "I hope Kirby finds a way to keep him on for a while."

"I remember that game like it was yesterday. Hearst, Robert Smith, Galloway. Drove down and got tickets for like $20," another said.

Shots fired from across the bow.
