Sorry, Gator fans. You know that whole players blocking each other against Georgia Southern thing that everyone agreed to forget about? Well it looks like the Internet has trouble letting go. After two USMNT players collided during Thursday’s match against Germany there was a hearty bit of schadenfreude, as folks used it as an opportunity to take potshots at UF.
Here’s the scary moment between Jermaine Jones and Alejandro Bedoya.
And here’s the snark.
Florida Gators did it better

Two of our players ran into each other. Am I watching the USMNT or the Florida Gators?

Oh my god the #USMNT has been reduced to the 2013-14 Florida Gators.

The US players crashing into each other reminds me of the Gators tackling each other #sorrynotsorry

There were tons more, but you get the point. At least UF is on people’s minds, right? Haters gonna hate.
