Florida alum Emmitt Smith, who won three Super Bowls with the Dallas Cowboys and finished his career as the all-time NFL leader in rushing yards, has been all over Twitter during the NCAA Tournament, rooting on his Gators through the big dance. But it only took one errant tweet for fans to cast him off as a bandwagon supporter.
Last night, Florida defeated UCLA to secure a spot in the Elite Eight. Smith was a little behind on the times, even though he watched the game.

He later deleted his tweet and re-posted with the correct round.
Elite 8 here we come!!! It’s great 2b a Florida Gator.

Perhaps he had a few cocktails while he was watching? Either way, if Florida wins on Saturday, it’ll be very obvious where they’re headed next.
