Florida has driven its fans crazy and the team wasted no time testing the limits of those supporters back in Gainesville.
On Saturday, a great Johnny Townsend punt pinned South Carolina deep nears its goal line before QB Jake Bentley threw an interception on the first play of the possession.
Florida freshman CJ Henderson was an inch away from taking it all the way back for a touchdown and tying the game at 7-7 before this happened.

For Henderson, that would’ve been his third interception return for a touchdown this season after taking one back in the opener against Michigan and then the very next game against Tennessee.
Entering Week 11, the Gators were 12th in the SEC in turnover margin at -5. The Gamecocks were second behind only Alabama at +7.
C.J. Henderson with a pick-si …. hold on … a fumble in end zone returned 24 yards by SC. The 2017 #Gators season in a nutshell.

Hahahaha! Only the #Gators can turn an easy pick 6 into a fumble on the goal line on the return for a 21 yard gain for the offense.
