Jim McElwain lights up everyone on the "Florida dodging LSU" bandwagon with one comment

Throwing down the gauntlet!

Jim McElwain spoke to the media for the first time since the decision was made to postpone the Florida-LSU game from this past weekend. There were going to be a ton of questions surrounding Florida potentially "dodging" the LSU game since no decision has been made on when to make up the game.

So when you talk about the potential for a new date on this game and why it was postponed in the first place, don't tell your friends that it was because Florida was scared. That definitely is not the reason so keep it out of your conversations and your heads.
