Jim McElwain reacts to Florida players taunting fans: 'Act like you've been there'


After wins against Tennessee and Kentucky, Florida players could be seen taunting fans of the opposing teams. During Monday's press conference Jim McElwain responded to his team's gestures.

"Act like you've been there," said head coach McElwain. "It's an emotional game. In some cases, they've got to understand, you don't need to react to what maybe had happened to you. When you get stuff thrown on you, sometimes you've got to maybe just turn the cheek, which is what you should do. At the same time it's a learning experience, and you know what, it's what it is.

"Let's put it this way, there's no reason. Just go shake their hands and get to the locker room."
