The good folks at Arkansassports360.com are reporting that Hog Sports Radio employee Renee Gork has been fired.
They do a better job than I will of re-”cap”ping the situation, but for those who missed it, Gork, a Florida grad, made the really dumb decision to wear a Gators cap to a UA press conference this weekend and ask the Head Hog, Bobby Petrino, a question. Petrino answered, but wasn’t happy, and let her know it.
Hog fans everywhere didn’t appreciate it, or other public comments she allegedly made about her job covering the Hogs (as opposed to the Gators), either. After several complaints, Capshaw was fired.
I personally don’t think the hat thing is a big deal but I am sure her employers didn’t like all the attention, or even the implication that she might be a Florida wonk that would prefer wonking for Florida.
It was a dumb mistake–particularly when you add in the fact that she is a Gator alum, and the Hogs lost were jobbed in Gainesville last year.
