LSU Safety Takes Exception To Florida’s “D.B.U.” Video, Lists Date Of This Year’s Game

Earlier this week, Florida, via a hype video, dubbed itself “D.B.U.” – meaning that the Gators believe they have the best program for defensive backs looking to play in the NFL. Predictably, players who play at least one other school don’t necessarily agree. Jamal Adams, safety at LSU, another school that pumps out top defensive backs, took to Twitter Friday night to make...
