Admiral Schofield has ‘never liked Florida, never will’

GAINESVILLE – No. 3 Tennessee (14-1, 3-0 SEC) defeated Florida (9-6, 1-2 SEC), 78-67, to remain unbeaten in SEC play.

Following the victory, Tennessee players performed the Gator chomp directed at the Florida student section.

Admiral Schofield discussed the emotion after the game and the disrespect UT players received throughout the contest by Florida fans.

“It’s basketball at the end of the day,” Schofield said. “No matter if it’s Tennessee vs. Florida, Michigan vs. Ohio State – it’s a sport. No one should be called out their name like that. It’s big-time for us. I’m glad we got the win. The Gator chomp was just the emotion from that.

“We still have some class, but at the same time, when we are disrespected, why show respect back?”

Schofield also added that he has “never liked Florida” and “never will.”

The Vols return home to take on Arkansas Tuesday night. The game will tip at 7 p.m. ET and will be televised on ESPN2.
