Chipper Jones rips Gators after upset

One of the Florida Gators’ best-known fans is ripping into the team after its stunning 33-23 loss to Louisville in the Sugar Bowl Wednesday night.

Chipper Jones took to Twitter to express the frustration that many Gator fans are feeling after watching Florida fall behind 24-3 in the first half and 33-10 in the second half before falling 10 points short in a late comeback attempt.

“Never seen a more undisciplined football team in my life. As a life long UF fan, that was embarrassing,” Jones wrote Thursday.

And then: “I can handle getting beat, but to show ur [fannies] in front of the whole country? Sure hope the inmates ain’t running the asylum down there!”

Chipper Jones is just a Mutts fan in Camouflage clothing.

The Florida Gators are still THE premier team in SEC Football today.

We’ll be back stronger than ever next year!

Since when is Chipper Jones a Gator? And he should start worrying about his own state of affairs before bashing others publicly. I don’t necessarily disagree with his comments, but didn’t he just leave his wife for a Playboy bunny? That doesn’t sound like the sharpest tool in the shed.

We have the #1 punter in the country. The #1 kicker in the country. The #1 recruiting class in the country.

Now alls we need is the #1 coach in the country and the #1 quarterback in the country.

Shutup mutts, you barely won your bowl game and 17-9 don’t mean jack!

Uh, 17-9 means Georgia beat Florida. It means Florida lost. Same as if it had been 17-16 or 2-0.

CJ10 grew up a Gator fan. And he’s right. UF had WAY more talent than UL but football is a team game. UL wanted it more. Not sure this is Muschamps issue. Bama mailed it in vs. Utah a couple of years ago. UGA mailed it in vs. Central Fl recently. These bowl game matchups this year have sucked. It’s an outdated idea. The fans don’t care, the players don’t care. Only the college presidents care.

I am literally laughing at the idiotic Gators posting on here trying to talk trash to the rest of the SEC after getting absolutely EMBARRASS in the most pathetic SEC performance in BCS history.

I read in USA Today that the Gators had 6,789 fans in attendance in New Orleans, Georgia brought over 14,000+ to Orlando and the Tide are having to turn people away fro Miami.

Long Live Will Muschamp! Driskel is a joke too!

I love seeing the misery of the Gator fans. Chipper was right. That was about the most embarrassing thing I’ve seen on the football field in a long time. UF returned about 10,500 tickets that they could not even sell. They lost to the Dawgs because they were intimidated and the Dawgs are the better team. The Gator program has been going downhill since Saint Timmy left. Their blogs talk all about there is little interest in all Gator sports programs. These things go in cycles and the Gators are heading to the lower tier fast. Florida totally embarrassed the SEC last night. At least the Dawgs were respectable against Alabama and as you know, were only about 5 yards from playing for it all. Cry in your beer Gators. Your program and classless fans are sad.

UF is the 3rd best team in the SEC….East.

Gators got punked by a team that is headed to the oh-so-strong ACC. As a fellow SEC’er, that’s embarrassing.

And I guess after a lifetime of having his performance scrutinized, Chipper is as justified as anyone to publicly criticize other athletes. Doesn’t mean it’s right, since he should understand how it feels, but maybe he enjoyed the public scrutiny when the Braves played like jokes in the playoffs from 1996 Game 3 of the World Series till present day. Maybe Chipper will start thinking backwards a little and start ripping the terrible playoff managerial job done by Bobby Cox all those years! That would be fun to see. Start with bringing in Leibrandt to face Puckett in Game 6 1991.

The SEC is a joke, the ACC owns them and made LSU quit.

Florida had NO BUSINESS being in a BCS game, the most poorly coached, under-prepared squad I’ve ever seen, and that is coming from someone who has first-hand witnessed Paul Johnson’s squads in bowl action.

As Taylor Martinez said, Nebraska was clearly better than Georgia but somehow the Mutts squeaked one out.

NEVER FORGET that GT beat the preseason #1 team in America and Rambling Wreck football is restored to Glory!

The gator tears are hilarious. Premier team of the SEC…. Please, the way you played you should worry about your upcoming recruiting classes. I know FSU and Miami loved what they saw last night. S.C. and UGA run the SEC east now. Enjoy the ride.

@ Duluth -
You also had the #1 Choke. With all the talent you have, you got manhandled by a lesser team.

But since you asked………

give credit where credit is due. The UF can at least boast about having smart fans. Or the 10,000 threw thier ticket orders away. Sorry fans, but smart.

Tell you what, next time you back into the Sugar Bowl, feel free to refuse the invite.

If you weren’t convinced things were going totally sideways from the start, then Florida getting the ball first should have crashed every tripwire in your panic centers. All year long the pattern has been the same: that Florida wants nothing to do with the ball in the first half, and should just punt on first down and let its defense do its half of the game plan–namely, assaulting the other team until they would prefer to be doing something else. Then, in the second half, shock the opponent by “attempting things,” and then “Falling on the opponent until fractures result.”

There is no way to pack more incompetence into a single play than what Florida did to open the second half. There isn’t; even allowing a TD return off an onside is simply losing a bet, and not losing the onside attempt and then accentuating the failure with TWO personal fouls. This then allowed Teddy Bridgewater to float one of his golden snitch god balls right over the top of Florida’s coverage, and thus a humiliating TD, and thus a series we’d really like to delete from the archives forever.

I don’t know about what others saw but for large portions of the game it appeared that UF wasn’t even trying to compete much less win the game. The clock managment in the 4th quarter was a damn joke. I’m a DAWG but I root for SEC teams when they play out of conference games. Last night has me reconsidering if I’ll ever cheer on a MusCHUMP led team again.

Sorry Gator Nation but your coach SUX!

Michael in Decatur is right:
” These bowl game matchups this year have sucked. It’s an outdated idea. The fans don’t care, the players don’t care. Only the college presidents care.”

In the present day of the BCS, none of these bowl games amount to anything. They’re like NFL preseason games – they just don’t really matter. Hard to get up for a game that has no true meaning. Yea, they allow you to practice for another month. They allow you to bloat your season record with another win. They may have a little impact on recruiting. But really, Georgia’s season ended Dec 1 in the Georgia Dome 5 yards short. When there used to be 5 NYD bowls and a few second tier on Dec 31, going to a bowl game was an ACCOMPLISHMENT. Even the Gator Bowl was a pretty big deal. But now it’s, “Hey, we have a winning record with wins over 2 1-AA teams and some university from Lousiana (LaLa, LaMon, LaTech . . .), we get to go to the ______________.com bowl in Charlotte!” Who cares?

When did UF become the Miami circa late 80’s? Every team has a loudmouth or two but the entire UF team were pounding their chests…yelling at referees…and all this while getting steamrolled. I can’t remember how many times a Louisville RB would bust it up the middle for 15 and a Gator would make a nice hit and start jawing…as if the hit made up for getting punked for 15 yards.

Chipper is right about the inmates running the asylum down there. Wow.

Said the guy threw the ball away in the playoff game, didn’t run out the last out that happened to be bobbled, and didn’t bother to come out and tip his cap to his fans after the loss. Class act, Larry. This is a lifelong Braves fan calling out a lazy redneck. Tweet that.

Georgia fan. I never want Florida to win a game. Don’t care about them being in the SEC. Don’t care that they would’ve finished 12-1 with that one loss to Georgia. The only way I ever pull for Florida is if it benefits Georgia, as in Florida vs. SC in 2012.

Now it appears that UGA signature win in conference was Vandy with their 8 wins. Of course they didn’t beat anyone with a winning record. Good thing they didn’t have to face Texas A&M, LSU or Alabama in the regular season. UF is a bunch of chumps and not very good!!

Florida would (and has) steamrolled everyone of you.

Jawja may have bragging rights the past two seasons, but Florida has the #1 ranked class coming in for 2013 and once we get this sip righted we will make you pay!

When I look at Florida, I see a team laughing and joking when they are down two touchdowns. I see a team with players whose uniforms all look different. I see players jumping up and down and dancing after making a tackle, down three touchdowns. Players warming up in shorts and t shirts just minutes before the game, while the other team is dressed out. They didn’t look prepared or interested or like a team at all. Muschamp must have been out drinking on Bourbon Street for three days.

Chipper was right about UF. They didn’t appear to take someone seriously. Talking smack in UL players grill after falling behind 2 scores right from the start.
Even after they saw GT beat a much more talented team (also disinterested team) in So Cal . The Gators looked as hooked and stunned as those dead gators in the Troys boat on Swamp people.
That was probably their attitude all week we just show up and we will win. It just doesn’t always work that way. UF no doubt has more raw talent than UL but it didn’t show up quick enough in that ball game.
There is a reason Charlie Strong stayed put and didn’t grab a job in the SEC. Yes UL had more to prove and to their credit they did. Just another bowl pick gone wrong for me ! Thanks for nothing Coach Will.
