BREAKING NEWS: GWOC to split - 10 teams to form separate league

Copeland, a Florida native, was dressed in red and announced the Gators were his team. His mom, wearing an Alabama sweatshirt and Tennessee hat promptly left the table and walked off as students cheered Copeland’s signing.
This wasn’t the first time a mom had issues with where their son chose to play football. Landon Collins earned the ire of her mom for picking Alabama over her favorite LSU.
Mom was angry again two years later when little brother Gerald Willis picked Florida.
