Florida State defensive end DeMarcus Walker isn’t well liked among fans of No. 12 Florida and for good reason. The junior sent out a tweet back in March saying “It sucks to be a Florida Gator” and the reaction, as you would expect, hasn’t been pleasant, according to PalmBeachPost.com’s Tom D’Angelo.
“Twitter’s kind of crazy,” Walker said. “They came after me. I kind of took it in. … every now and then I got some people that ‘at’ me, Gator fans and all that, but I don’t pay it no mind. That’s something about me, I don’t let stuff get in my head like that. You can talk bad about me and I promise, it can just go in one ear and out the other.”
Walker and No. 13 Florida State are set to play Florida (10-1, 7-1) at the Swamp Saturday, so the 6-foot-3, 277-pound DE should expect to get an earful from Florida fans. The Seminoles (9-2, 6-2 ACC) and Gators will kickoff at 7:30 p.m. EST on ESPN.
