Twitter Goes Crazy After Shoe-Throwing Penalty Costs Florida Game

One mistake could cost them a spot in the postseason


The Florida-LSU rivalry got heated Saturday as the Gators fought for a spot in the playoffs.

But one silly mistake might cost them a trip to the postseason.

Florida appeared to force a fourth down with the game tied at 34 and just 1:58 on the clock. That’s when Gators defensive back Marco Wilson picked up the cleat of an LSU player and hucked it downfield.

The refs penalized Wilson with unsportsmanlike conduct for chucking the shoe, giving LSU a first down.

LSU wound up winning the game on a 57-yard field goal. And all this was enough to send Twitter into an absolute frenzy.
