Today, the Florida Gators are hosting the Tennessee Volunteers in a big-time SEC battle. Florida fans know that the key to beating the Vols is shutting down star guard Jordan McRae, and they certainly are doing their best to distract him. One fan created one very bizarre outfit for the game — his shirt features a baby doll harnessed on the front. Of course, that baby doll happens to have the face of Jordan McRae on it, and it caught his attention during warmups:

I asked McRae about not being able to keep a straight face when he saw this (pic.twitter.com/24o4CyB64F). His response: “That [stuff] is funny”

It must be working, because midway through the second half McRae is 1-12 from the field with five points.
