It doesn’t take much for Florida CB Jalen Tabor to trash talk the Tennessee Volunteers.
If you were on Twitter Sunday evening, you probably saw people discussing the Cleveland Cavaliers’ blowout loss to the Golden State Warriors in Game 2 of the NBA Finals. When UF CB Quincy Wilson tweeted about the Cavaliers, Tabor jumped on the opportunity to zing the Vols.

Tennessee lost to Oklahoma and Florida last season despite taking leads into the fourth quarter in both contests. The Gators scored two touchdowns in the final quarter to edge the Volunteers 28-27, a game which Tabor missed due to suspension. It’s one of many shots the junior corner has taken at UT this offseason on social media.
When Tabor saw an ESPN graphic predicting the Volunteers would win the SEC East, he tweeted about making it “12 in a row” in reference to UF’s 11-game winning streak against Tennessee. He also dissed UT RB Jalen Hurd and LB Jalen Reeves-Maybin by calling himself “the only Jalen they talk about in this conference.” Tabor’s tweets have led to notable responses from Hurd, Reeves-Maybin and junior college transfer Jonathan Kongbo.
Florida and Tennessee will meet Sept. 24 in Knoxville.
