Talk about throwing some social media shade.
Either Florida’s official Twitter account doesn’t seem to have much faith in offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier or would at least prefer legendary head coach Steve Spurrier to take his job, or maybe it truly was an honest mistake.
When the Twitter account announced that UF would honor Spurrier’s first reference to Ben Hill Griffin Stadium as “The Swamp,” one fan responded by asking if the retired coach could take over as the team’s offensive coordinator.
Via Saturday Down South:
Apparently, the Gators’ account agreed with the suggestion and “liked” the tweet.
Of course, the account needed to do some damage control:
Florida’s offense had an abysmal showing on Saturday during a 33-17 loss to Michigan. The Gators recorded just nine first downs and were 2-for-13 on third down conversions, as well as 11 total rushing yards and three turnovers.
