    There are trolls. Then there are epic trolls. And one unnamed Vol fan pulled off a big joke towards fans of the Florida Gators today.

    One Vol fan altered the message on a digital construction sign near the University of Florida today so that instead of displaying a roadwork message, it gave Gator fans a little reminder of what happened in Knoxville last year.

    The tweet states the sign is at the entrance of the university, but the sign is apparently on a road that runs parallel to the campus rather than at an actual entrance. Still the message is being broadcast right on the precipice of the campus.

    If you don’t remember, the slogan “ducks pulling trucks” comes from some trash talk when then-Florida Gator cornerback Quincy Wilson said, “Nobody has ever seen a duck pull a truck. Florida Gators are going to win, simple as that,” when asked about Florida’s upcoming match-up with the Vols.

    When Tennessee pulled off the 38-28 victory and Josh Dobbs torched Florida’s secondary for 319 yards and four touchdowns, Vol fans everywhere took to social media and elsewhere to claim that ducks could, indeed, pull trucks.

    And Vol fans still aren’t letting Gator fans forget it.

    The sign also references Jauan Jennings’ 67-yard touchdown catch in which Jennings burned Florida cornerback Jalen Tabor en route to a high-stepping score.

    The Vols hadn’t beaten Florida in over 11 years until last season. And Vol fans aren’t about to let that streak-ending victory be forgotten.
