Payback Time

October 23rd, 2015
Gerald McCoy had to pay off a wager he lost yesterday.

Gerald McCoy had to pay off a wager he lost yesterday.

Last week, Joe brought word that other than making six-figures (or more) a year, when it comes to college football, Bucs players are just like you and Joe.

They sit in bars, cheer on favorite teams, and loudly get into arguments about the best team in the land.

Sometimes, this leads to friendly wagering. And Gerald McCoy came out on the wrong end of one such bet.

GMC, a proud graduate of the University of Oklahoma, used to run smack about the hated Longhorns of Texas, Oklahoma’s fiercest rival, with Bucs teammate Henry Melton, a product of Texas.

As so often happens when those two meet each October, an upset is usually in order. And thus, the monster underdog Longhorns upset the previously undefeated Sooners. For his penance, GMC had to wear Longhorns gear and do push-ups. Video evidence is below from yesterday in the Bucs locker room.

GMC said he had a skin rash because he wore Longhorns colors.

    God that must have absolutely KILLED him to have to put that on. And with the year that UT is having, he must’ve thought there was virtually no way he would’ve lost the bet.

    I don’t know what I would do if I lost a bet with a UF fan and had to put on the most hideous team colors ever conceived, orange and blue. I guess you have to pay up, but dog knows that would be painful

    To his credit, he sucked it up and didn’t even try to skip out of the interview early.

    As a Noles fan if I had to wear Gator’s gear for less than 5 minutes. I’d have to take a long hot shower afterwards with one of them scrubby poofy things my wife uses. Just the thought of it gives me the hibby jeebies.

    Not a U of Texas fan, but seeing OK knocked from the ranks of the unbeaten is satisfying. Creamsicle… I get just as disgusted when FS pew tops the Gators, even when UF is wearing their prison uniforms.

    im a gator fan and I must admit my brother and I have the same bet every year…if fsu wins I have to wear those horrible colors, ride a bike down the street with a broom and plant it in his front yard like the dumb mascot does before their game…if I win he has to wear that beautiful blue and orange, and jump in my pool with my daughters gator float and do the gator chop…I look forward to getting him wet this year….GO BUCS!!!

    Blue and Orange don’t match and FSU has the best tradition in college football. Plus we don’t have to use both hands and clap like we have a disability or use the same fight song as 37 other CFB teams. FSU wins by a long shot in the spirit department!

    Real gators chomp. Real Seminole Indians never swung their arms up and down at their elbows or chanted oh oh oh a oh.

  8. Buc1987 Says:

    Real Seminole Indians..never chanted oh oh oh a oh.

    Probably not, but indians did many different chants. Or haven’t you seen Dances with 2 Socks?

    I grew up near a “real” indian reservation as a kid. Not one casino in sight. They most certainly do chant, and still do to this day.

  9. Buc1987 Says:

    Oh and they did use tomahawks too. Perhaps FSU simply didn’t want fans to bring in real tomahawks to the games. lol

    We ought to make a wager in here. I’ll propose one. If FSU beats the Gators…again..this season. Then you have to come in here and post the following.

    I’m a Gator fan and it sucks to be a Florida Gator, because they suck so bad. If the Noles lose to UF then I’ll do the same.

    Any takers?

  10. CreamsicleBananaHammock Says:

    Where in the world does any gator fan get off criticizing FSU’s colors, (the best unis in the country)?

    Seriously, those all orange atrocities you guys have pulled out this year make you look like traffic cones.

    Creamsicle…and we positively have the best mascot on this earth. By that I mean every sport.
