We're still several months away from the regular season in college football, but two SEC titans are already feuding with each other. Dan Mullen has thrown fuel to the fire between these rivals by making an interesting remark about Florida's attendance rating at its spring game.

Apparently there were 39,476 at the Gators' spring game. This seems like a pretty random number, yet it takes on a whole new meaning due to an interesting discovery.

There was an entire thread on Reddit revealing that Georgia hasn't won a national championship in 39 years. During that long period of time, the Bulldogs have played 476 games on the gridiron.

It's still unknown if the number is a prank by the Gators or an accurate figure. However, there is no denying that Mullen is a fan of trolling his opposition.

Although he did deny his knowledge about the significance of the attendance rating, he did crack a joke at Georgia fans' expense.

From 247Sports:

"I had no idea. I don't even know how they came up with that number, the most random thing ever," Mullen said. "Maybe Georgia fans were really so uptight they haven't won in 39 years they got all uptight and tried to figure it out. But it was pretty random actually, it was pretty funny."

Georgia and Florida will have to settle their differences on the field in November.

The Bulldogs won the previous meeting between these two rivals in convincing fashion, defeating the Gators by 19 points.
