By now, unless you’ve been living under a
rock shark carcass, you’ve probably heard about the insane possibility that Florida head coach Jim McElwain was caught making sweet, sweet shark love. And in this quirky world we live, in a bizarre way, it doesn’t matter whether he did or didn’t do it (other than he’d be fired on the spot, if it were proven to be him. Nbd). People will joke about it so much that it will almost have as much power as if it were true (cue Jim Harbaugh brainstorming ideas of how he can one-up McElwain by humping a whale). It’s Pandora’s box. You can’t go back. McElwain has already vehemently denied it. But that hasn’t stopped the freight train of fans talking and joking about it from steamrolling ahead.
Which got us to thinking: how can the Gators opponents best troll them this year? Because believe us- they WILL troll them.
Play the Jaws theme music
Simple but effective. And it works so well in so many situations. Florida driving? Jaws theme. Gators in 3rd and long? Jaws theme. Florida calls time out? Jaws theme. Just constant dun-dun-dun-dun-dun-dun-dun-dun. Bonus points if someone could mix it down with The Humpty Dance.
Dress up like Right Shark
Let College Gameday feature Florida on the road this year. What is the over/under on number of Right Sharks seen in the crowd? 100? 237? 585.5? Let’s just say it will be a lot. Imagine a whole section of students dress up as Right Shark in the stands. Just riotously funny.
Feature shark footage on the jumbotron
Not real sharks, but funny stuff. You could always go with something like Shark Tale. Maybe clips of the sharks from Finding Nemo. Perhaps the way old school Jabberjaw from back in the day. Or even clips of Mark Cuban on Shark Tank. However, we’d go with our personal favorite- Sergeant Sam Roderick from Spongebob:
Whatever opposing fans choose, we’re sure it will be both creative and hilarious. And Florida fans would be best served to embrace it. It’s such a hilarious episode (if you ignore the disturbingness of a naked man humping a dead shark), that you just have to roll with it. Even if it’s
definitely probably not true.
So what do you guys think? Any other ideas? Tweet at us @Pypeline_, and let us hear your ideas (that includes you, too, Florida fans), and we’ll feature the best ones. Because as the old saying goes, when life gives you lemons, you nakedly hump a dead shark on a fishing boat.
