If it’s one thing the Florida Gators have enjoyed this summer, it has been talking smack about their SEC East rivals, the Georgia Bulldogs.
The Twitter account for the Gators’ football equipment got into the action this week.
It all started when that same Florida account posted images of its moving trucks with fresh paintings of the Gators and the program’s glory days. The images included the three national championship trophies on the side of one truck.
A UGA fan tried to make fun of the trophy paintings, saying “”who put those trophy’s on there they aren’t level,” followed by several laughing emojis.
Florida’s twitter account could not resist the urge to respond.
Here was the comeback: “The trophy style has changed from the 90’s to the early 2000’s…just look at the last trophy you won almost 4 decades ago. Completely different. #AndNowYouKnow.”
Of course, the Gators were referring to 1980, the last time that UGA won the national championship.
It’s not that first time that Florida has gone in that direction with an insult. The Gators used their spring-game attendance number to also apparently troll the Bulldogs about 1980.
Flash forward to now: UGA has put the Gators on blast over the last two seasons, winning by a combined score of 78-24. The two teams play again on Nov. 2.
