Jim McElwain excited to get booed by Tennessee fans

The Florida Gators travel up to Knoxville to take on the Tennessee Volunteers at Neyland Stadium in a key SEC East game on Saturday. When the Gators make their way onto the field, the sea of orange and white will shower them with boos and Florida head coach Jim McElwain is excited for that to happen.

McElwain spoke to Barrett Sallee of Bleacher Report and said that he is going to be ready for what happens when he takes to the field.

He seemed happy about the prospect of getting booed by over 100,000 college football fans.

“This is fun, to get a chance to go on the road and play in front of 100,000 people booing you,” McElwain said. “That’s great, man.”

You shouldn’t really blame McElwain for being excited for the game on Saturday as it could decide the SEC East champion this early in the season. The Gators have also won 11 straight over the Volunteers.

However, the Gators used a last-minute Hail Mary to beat the Volunteers last year, so it will be exciting to see what happens when the two teams take the field on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. EST. The game will air on CBS.
