In midst of getting blown out by Mizzou, Florida trolls itself on Twitter

If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em I guess.

Today marks Florida’s first game since Jim McElwain was unceremoniously dismissed as the Gators’ head football coach this past week.  With Randy Shannon now in charge in the interim, not much has changed as UF is getting rolled by 3-5 Missouri 35-9 very early in the fourth quarter.

Given the caliber of the opponent and the sizable deficit, the Gators were being ridiculed far and wide on social media outlets, Twitter in particular.  Not long after the Tigers stretched the lead to nearly four touchdowns, the official Twitter account of UF athletics decided to get in on the tweeting fun.

Yep, that glorious “Naked Gun” GIF pretty fairly sums up the current state of Florida football.

And so does this: in the last seven quarters covering games against Missouri and Georgia, UF has been outscored 77-16.
