Florida defensive back is not good at trash talk

Florida defensive back Chauncey Gardner-Johnson not only thinks his Gators will beat Kentucky on Saturday, he guaranteed it.

“It’s 31, right?” he said earlier this week. “It’ll be 32 after Saturday.”

Gardner-Johnson’s comment drew lots of attention, but it’s not the first time he’s ruffled feathers with some pregame trash talk. Last year he had some things to say about Georgia — and it backfired.

Walk back with me to last October when Gardner-Johnson said Georgia quarterback Jake Fromm can only throw simple passes. “Anybody can throw a slant,” he said prior to the game.

One Jake Fromm slant pass later, Gardner-Johnson was carried off the field with a shoulder injury.

Georgia won the game, 42-7.

Maybe Gardner-Johnson’s words will come back to haunt him once again?

    Perhaps a nice slant to start of the game is in order

    No offense but there is a glaring difference between the Georgia bulldogs and the football wildcats. Not really even comparable.

    Talk is cheap and it is not a guarantee unless he is putting something on the line. If he says I guarantee we will win or I will quit football, that means something. I guarantee a win or I will sit 3 games, again means something. Hell it is easy to just say anything without something on the line. Next time any athlete spouts off with a guarantee please ask them what they will do if it does not happen.
