It’s Florida vs Tennessee week, which always tends to get a little weird — for fans, coaches and players. The annual SEC rivalry has been all Gators as of late. Florida has taken the last eight games, just two away from Tennessee’s record of 10 straight.
In order to buck the streak and give new head coach Butch Jones a signature win in year one, Tennessee coaches are pulling out all the stops. On Tuesday, the Vols’ scout team wore blue jerseys with “Gators” on their helmets, and repeatedly Gator chomped during practice.
Florida defensive lineman Dominique Easley probably understands where Jones is coming from. Easley enjoys singing Rocky Top while playing the Vols, stating “might as well make the best of it.”
