Apparently, there's still more than a few grudges held in Gainesville over the way Urban Meyer left the Florida head coaching job -- and the result of Saturday night's Big Ten championship wound up a ripe time to express them.
Here's current Florida redshirt junior wide receiver Quinton Dunbar:
Lol lets see if Urban Meyer play sick again #UnLoyal— Quinton Dunbar (@QuintonDunbar1) December 8, 2013
Former Gator linebacker (and current Miami Dolphin) Jelani Jenkins:
Ahhh I can rest easy now #phinsup— Jelani Jenkins (@jelanijenkins3) December 8, 2013
Former Gator defensive end Kedric Johnson:
Everything happens for a reason lol— Ked Johnson (@_KJ41) December 8, 2013
And for what it's worth, here's current Florida offensive lineman Jon Halapio, immediately after the game (the tweet has since been deleted):
RT @Jhalapio67: HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHA— OnlyGators.com (@onlygators) December 8, 2013
Halapio would later tweet that his laughter was unrelated to Meyer and that he "didn't even watch" the game, so take with a grain of salt ... but it remains quite a coincidence. And the Tweets don't necessarily stop there.
Meyer had his defenders among former Gators as well, and of course it's possible -- maybe even likely -- Meyer would have the support of a silent majority of his former Gators. But clearly, feelings are still more than a bit raw in some sections of the locker room he left behind.
