Gator punter takes exception to Florida's official Twitter account mocking football team
“Please disburse, nothing to see here,” Leslie Nielsen said in Naked Gun as he stood in front of an explosion.
A gif of that scene appeared Saturday on the official Twitter account of the Florida Gators during the game against Missouri, which resulted in a 45-16 loss. And that didn’t sit well with Florida punter Johnny Townsend.
Before it was later deleted, Townsend tweeted, “In all kinds of weather..?” We work too hard to have our own school Twitter bash us.”
Townsend had five punts for an average of 48.4 yards per punt on Saturday, including two inside the 20-yard line. It was the first game the Gators played since they parted ways with coach Jim McElwain and interim coach Randy Shannon took over. It was the fourth straight loss for Florida, which started quarterback Malik Zaire. Backup QB Feleipe Franks found Lamical Perine for a touchdown pass in the fourth quarter.
