Dante Fowler Jumps Into Florida-LSU Beef, Makes Bold Claim

The Florida Gators and LSU Tigers are in the midst of a big-league Twitter beef over who gets to lay claim to the title “Defensive Back University.” It all started last week when the video “Florida Gators: D.B.U.” made the Internet rounds. LSU players were quick to call out the Gators, and haven’t stopped since.

On Monday night, star Tigers running back Leonard Fournette backed his teammates.

Now, former Gators defensive monster Dante Fowler Jr. has joined the battle. According to Fowler, there’s more first round talent in Florida’s backfield than we’ve ever seen on a college football team.

Vernon Hargreaves, Keanu Neal, Jalen Tabor, Brian Poole, JC Jackson, Quincy Wilson and Marcus Maye are all elite talents that’ll soon be walking across the NFL Draft stage.

Bold claim, but we can dig it. Go big or go home.

Fowler did make sure to show one LSU defensive back some respect: Jalen Mills.

Keep it coming, boys. We’ve got to pass this long offseason somehow, and trash talk is the perfect way. It’s only going to make next year’s showdown in Death Valley that much more hyped.
