Florida DL: Is Bear Bryant a Cartoon?

SEC football players really need to start taking history lessons on their sport.

Two years after former LSU punter Brad Wing said he didn’t know who Bear Bryant was, Florida defensive lineman Dominique Easley took things even further on Tuesday at SEC Media Days by asking if the legendary Alabama head coach was a cartoon. Jason Lieser of The Palm Beach Post tweeted the following from the event in Hoover, AL:

His excuse?

We assume Easley was thinking of Yogi Bear, who – come to think of it – does kind of resemble arguably the greatest college football coach to ever live. Either way, at least Wing had the excuse of being an Australian for his ignorance. Easley’s lack of SEC football history knowledge must have Alabama fans turning over in their graves.
