Goff headed to UGA/UF Hall of Fame

(Jacksonville, Florida-AP) -- Former Georgia player and coach Ray Goff is among those being inducted into the Georgia-Florida Hall of Fame on Friday.

 Goff, who went 1-and-6 as a coach against the Gators, has a sense of humor about his struggles.

Goff told Florida Today newspaper  "When they called me and told me, I asked them if I was going in for Florida or Georgia."

The former coach still lives in Athens, Georgia, and will attend the game for the first time since he was fired after the 1995 season.

Goff played quarterback for the Bulldogs in the mid-70s, and beat the Gators three times as a player.

How will he be received by Georgia fans as a new member of the Hall? Goff said  "I don't know. It's not something I can fret or worry about. I would hope, I'm a Georgia man. Always have been, always will be. That's where my loyalties lie and always will."
