Florida Gators defensive standout Teez Tabor was interviewed recently and was asked to compare the bowl preparation for the Florida Gators this year as opposed to last year. Somehow, Tabor was able to give the following quote regarding his team facing the Michigan Wolverines in the Citrus Bowl last season. Before you read the quote below here’s a reminder of the final score of that particular bowl game. Michigan 41, Florida 7.

Wondering if maybe that comment was cherry-picked? Think again. Here’s the full context of his answer.

“We had the way better team, no question about it.”
Michigan players Jake Butt and Jourdan Lewis were quick to respond.

The comment predictably caused a minor firestorm on Twitter that played out hilariously. It’s likely that Tabor will choose his words more carefully when addressing the media next time.

hahaha Teez Tabor really said the reason Florida got rolled by Michigan last year was because of coaching? That's hilarious.
