Jim McElwain’s Twitter account has recognized Florida’s SEC East title with a slick Gators graphic.
The Gators earned a huge 16-10 victory against LSU on Saturday at Tiger Stadium to clinch their division. McElwain had some parting shots for the Tigers, and his Twitter account did some boasting to mark the occasion as well.
Check out the sweet tweet below, which includes the message, “WELCOME TO ATLANTA WHERE THE BACK 2 BACK SEC EAST CHAMPS PLAY.” The image includes the date, “12.3.2016,” which is when Florida will play Alabama in the SEC Championship Game for the second consecutive season.

It will be fun to see if the Gators fare better than they did when they lost to the Crimson Tide 29-15 last year in the conference title game. Florida must deal with injury issues, but the Gators have done well to earn a return trip to the Georgia Dome with an 8-2 overall record and a 6-2 mark in conference play. They overcame a key loss to Tennessee on Sept. 24 to do so.
Saturday was a great day to be a Gator, indeed.
