This has got to absolutely thrill Billy Napier.
Former Georgia Bulldog outside linebacker Brenton Cox, now on the opposite side of the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party rivalry matchup against Florida, had something to say for his old team on Twitter over the weekend. Cox, who spent one year at Georgia before transferring out of Athens prior to the 2019 season, quote tweeted the official Georgia Football account’s video of the Bulldogs in practice, telling his former teammates they “better get ready for me.” That sparked a feud between Cox and fans on social media Saturday night.
Yeah, that’s a good look.
Georgia fans immediately filled the responses of Cox’s tweet, including a video of him being outrun by Bulldog quarterback Stetson Bennett in last year’s 34-7 Georgia win. The Bulldogs would go on to win the National Championship while Florida finished with a losing record including a 2-6 mark in the SEC.
Cox took note of that and made it known that he had better stats than anybody on Georgia’s defense last season. Cox led the Gators with 14.5 tackles for loss and 8.5 sacks, more than the 10.5 tackle for loss (Nakobe Dean) and 6.5 sack (Robert Beal) marks that led Georgia in 2021.
“I had foot surgery 1 month before the season and still had more sacks and TFL’s than they WHOLE defense… not to be cocky, stating the stats and the facts. u Digg”
Twelve guys from Cox’ 2018 class are in the pros now, eight of whom were lower rated recruits. Figure that’s eating at him a little bit?
