Here’s one way to kick a guy when he’s down.

ESPN College GameDay host Rece Davis made a joke at the expense of former Florida coach Jim McElwain during the show’s Championship Drive broadcast on Saturday.

The Badgers players shared a photo of themselves on Twitter after catching a 450-pound shark prior to Saturday’s Orange Bowl matchup against Miami.

Davis mentioned the tweet on GameDay and said, “unclear if it was retweeted by Jim McElwain or not,” which got a reaction out of his co-hosts.

Of course, Davis was alluding to an infamous picture featuring a man who — at the very least — resembles McElwain laying naked on top of a dead shark.

Although the former coach denied being the man photographed, the incident was discussed throughout his final season at Florida, one that resulted in him being fired with just cause.

Come on, Rece. That’s low-hanging fruit, man.

Why even go there?
