The Georgia Bulldogs and the Florida Gators have one of the most iconic and passionate rivalries in the SEC.
Today, the two are considered the favorites to reach the SEC Championship game out of the east division. But now, the hatred the two sides have for one another has reached a new level.
Florida, Georgia offseason feud continues as Gator fans have turned ‘14,000’ into a viral tweet https://t.co/OqMld1cpXL— SEC Football News (@SECfootball) May 2, 2019
The latest Twitter trend among the Florida program and its followers is the number 14,000. The number is how many days since Jan. 1, 1981, when Herschel Walker and head coach Vince Dooley led Georgia to their most recent national championship with a win over Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl.
A similar troll attempt was taken by head coach Dan Mullen during the spring game, with an announced attendance of 39,476 illustrating the numbers of days since UGA's title.
However, while the Gators are fortunate to have won three national championships since Georgia's last title, Florida needs to pump their breaks somewhat when dealing with Kirby Smart's Bulldogs. UGA has beaten UF twice in a row, both by convincing final scores. Smart is also cleaning up on the recruiting trail
The programs will renew their rivalry on Nov. 2 in Jacksonville. Let's hope the Twitter trash talk subsides slightly by then, for fans' safety.
