07:49 PM ET 01.04 | Former Atlanta Braves third baseman Chipper Jones used to be a fat man, but he still managed to get a Playboy Playmate to get into bed every night with him. On top of that, he's become somewhat of a Twitter celebrity with his bizarre and often incoherent tweets. Jones utilized the latter skill to display his displeasure with how the Florida Gators played in the Sugar Bowl on Wednesday. Jones, who is a self-proclaimed die-hard Gator fan, said he hadn't seen such a pitiful display from a football team in all his years, or words to that effect. While Jones was a little outrageous, and has a reputation on social media of being that way, he wasn't entirely wrong. The Gators bounced the Georgia Bulldogs out of a BCS bowl by finishing ahead of them, and the way they repay the system is to get blown away by an average Big East school in Louisville.

Discredit the messenger if it makes you feel better. Bottom line, the Gators embarrassed themselves and their program by showing up completely unprepared for that game. If they're not ashamed of the way they played, they have no heart.

Mr. Jones will most likely be a first ballot HOF'er so in my book that gives the dude a little latitude to talk.
Of course after that performance my 5 year old would be given the latitude.

I don't understand this term "upset" when it comes to sports. I don't believe in upsets. There are only wins and losses. Upset to me only means that someone was either lead to believe something about the potential of a given team that simply wasn't so, or that they have grossly underestimated an opponent.

Florida was support to win this game!!! I think Clipper was "upset" with the way the Gators got their **** handed to them!!! The game wasn't even close!!!

Maybe Louisville is more than an average Big East team. Pretty sure the BE owns the SEC this year in games played.

I agree, but I bet some SEC fans will just say that Louisville was lucky to kick the <hit out of Florida.
