ESPN’s Football Power Index believes the Tennessee Volunteers will win the SEC East. Florida cornerback Jalen Tabor is having none of that.
Tabor went on Twitter to mock the FPI for picking the Vols ahead of the defending SEC East champion Gators. The Football Power Index is ESPN’s measurement for a team’s strength in order to predict its performance throughout the season.

Tabor wasn’t finished after one sarcastic tweet. He continued to criticize those who doubted Florida.
“‘They’ picked UT to win the east the last 3 years,” Tabor tweeted. “I feel sorry for ‘they.’”
But wait, there’s more. Tabor added some fuel to the fire by guaranteeing Florida’s 12th-consecutive victory over the Volunteers come September.
“We’ll make it 12 years in a row this year,” Tabor tweeted.
Both sides will have plenty of bulletin board material entering the Sept. 24 contest at Neyland Stadium.
