Jim McElwain throws some shade at Tennessee
Florida coach Jim McElwain made it clear on Thursday afternoon that he’s tired of talking a particular SEC East rival.
When asked about adding former Volunteers punter Tommy Townsend to the roster, McElwain couldn’t resist throwing some shade on those hyping the Knoxville program:
McElwain on adding Townsend: #Vols have a heck of a punter "and I don't know, I guess they've got all of the best players in this league."

To be fair, RB Jalen Hurd and QB Joshua Dobbs are pretty solid football players, but McElwain made it clear that he thinks the Gators are getting snubbed when it comes to media coverage.
This is just more fuel added to the fire in the Tennessee-Florida rivalry. It’ll be fun to see what happens when the two teams actually square off on the field on Saturday, Sept. 24, at Neyland Stadium.
