South Carolina assistant getting trolled after posting 'DBU' tweet
In the college football world, the title of “DBU” is something that is hotly debated. In the SEC alone, LSU, Florida and Alabama have legitimate claims to it.
Elsewhere in the Power 5, Texas and Florida State also like to call themselves “DBU” at times.
So, even though South Carolina has produced some good defensive backs over the years, this graphic posted by new DB coach Torrian Gray predictably drew a lot of trolling:

Now, the Gamecocks have sent some talented players to the NFL recently. Stephon Gilmore is one of the best corners in the league. DJ Swearinger has had a solid career. This coming draft, Jaycee Horn figures to be a Round 1 pick. Israel Mukuamu will likely hear his name called at some point.
Still, Gray should have known this wasn’t going to go over well.
