FGCU Chant on ESPN: ‘F*ck the Gators!’
One of the drawbacks of those live look-ins you often see on ESPN’s “SportsCenter” reared its ugly head on Monday night right when the show cut to the Florida Gulf Coast pep rally.
As soon as Eagles coach Andy Enfield made mention of FGCU’s Sweet Sixteen opponent, Florida, a chorus of boos rained down from those gathered at Alico Arena — followed by an even louder and prolonged chant of “F*ck the Gators!”
ESPN later issued an apology for the profane live look-in. On the plus side, the chant — in addition to being humorous on its own — led to this awesome reaction from one of the FGCU male cheerleaders.
