LSU fans are creatures of habit. Once they find something that works, they do it again and again. And in 2007, they decided to send Tim Tebow hundreds of text messages prior to LSU 28-24 victory over the Gators. So predictably, they’ve showered Gators’ quarterback John Brantley with text messages just in case he’s the starter for Saturday’s game.
Backup quarterback John Brantley said Monday night he has received “quite a few” taunting text messages from numbers he does not recognize.
Florida coach Urban Meyer, offensive coordinator Steve Addazio and receiver Riley Cooper have also been getting extra calls and texts this week, apparently from LSU fans trying to get in their ears — or heads — before Saturday night’s game between top-ranked Florida and No. 4 LSU.
“They haven’t been bad,” said Brantley, in line to start Saturday if Tim Tebow can’t because of a concussion. “It’s just a little annoying.”
Newsflash LSU fans. This aint the Gators of 2007 and this aint the Tigers of 2007. Probably should’ve kept the text messages to yourself.
