Florida’s athletics Twitter account may have had some fun with it, but one playing member of the Gators certainly didn’t.
In the first game since Jim McElwain was dismissed, Florida was embarrassed in a lopsided 45-16 loss. Particularly offensive was the Gators’ rush defense, which allowed the Tigers to run over, through and around them for 227 yards.
Even more embarrassing, though, was how half the team — or more — appeared to simply quit the deeper the deficit got. That fact wasn’t lost on linebacker David Reese, who called out his teammates for essentially giving.
Just as telling as Reese’s comments are the fact that they were highlighted on the Twitter account of the football team’s official website’s main writer.
