Florida, Georgia fans battling it out on Twitter following Brenton Cox transfer news
If you missed the news, Brenton Cox is officially a Gator just days after he left Kirby Smart’s Georgia program.
The move happened so fast, Georgia had not even publicly addressed Cox leaving the program before he arrived in Gainesville ready for the upcoming Florida training camp practice.
Cox appeared in 11 games for the Bulldogs during his true freshman season, registering 20 tackles and one sack in 2018. He will wear No. 6 for the Gators.
As you could imagine, the immediate reaction to the news has been pretty divided online.
Here is a sampling of some of the comments after Cox was officially introduced by the Gators:

WHAT … A … STEAL for @GatorsFB!!! Unfortunately though, he has to sit out the 2019 or 2020 season pending a waiver. Staying in the SEC East: Brenton Cox makes transfer decision https://t.co/IrAgMRIzhl
