It’s well documented that Tennessee hasn’t beaten Florida since 2004. It’s so well documented that some of the impact of that fact has been lost. That’s where Rece Davis comes in.
The ESPN College GameDay host tweeted out a great joke Friday afternoon to remind people just how much the world has changed since the last time the Vols beat the Gators.
About to go live on Facebook. Or "theFacebook" which is what they called it the last time UT beat Florida. 2004. https://t.co/UpwmGlTYa3

That’s right. Facebook launched in 2004, the same year Tennessee got its last victory over the Gators. At the time, the site was called “thefacebook.com.” The social media giant shortened the name to “facebook.com” the following year.
Obviously, Davis’ tweet got some great reactions.
