LSU team spokesman Michael Bonnette said Sunday that the "#GFY" portion of strength coach Tommy Moffitt's tweet means "Good For You," a phrase the coach commonly uses around the team.


Original story

There's no love lost between LSU and Florida, and social media exchanges after the Tigers' win Saturday offered proof of that.

Multiple players sent out post-game tweets mocking Gators coach Jim McElwain who said after Florida's win last year that LSU "got what it deserved."

LSU strength and conditioning coach Tommy Moffitt also got involved in the postgame Twitter banter, asking, "How did you like those apples?". He also added the hashtag "#GFY," which typically is an acronym that stands for "go f*** yourself," although it's unclear whom the message was directed toward. 

The tweet included several other hashtags, including one that read "#nothingbutloveforthetigers."

Moffitt's message came shortly after LSU finished off a 17-16 win over Florida, played in Gainesville, as part of the agreement that had last year's game played in Baton Rouge. 

LSU and Florida officials shared testy exchanges over the decision to cancel the game due to Hurricane Matthew last year. LSU offered for the game to be played at Tiger Stadium, but Florida declined. The game was eventually played in Baton Rouge later in the season with both teams buying out their nonconference opponents for that week. 

This year's game was played in Gainesville as part of the agreement. Social media barbs continued to fly between the two schools, leading up to Saturday's game. One exchange in April included the Gators' Twitter account sending the message "safety first," responding to the news that LSU had moved its spring game indoors due to weather concerns.
