Oxford Police Department Trolls Gainesville PD With Urban Meyer Cardiac Health Joke

The No. 25 Florida Gators are back in the AP Poll and will host the No. 3 Ole Miss Rebels next weekend in an SEC showdown. In anticipation of the match-up, the Oxford Police Department trolled the Gainesville P.D. on Twitter this afternoon.

Nothing too shocking about them doing that, but what was surprising was the type of joke that followed: one mocking former Florida head coach Urban Meyer's decision to leave the Gators for health reasons in 2010 before resurfacing as the Ohio State head coach in 2012. 

The tweet has since been deleted but here is a screen-shot of it.

Naturally, the Oxford P.D. got a ton of backlash from Ohio State fans, and quickly.

The two departments have since gone back and forth with each other and kept it good-natured, which is a good thing.
