Duke's David Cutcliffe v. FSU strength coach Vic Viloria: Jestergate

Vic Viloria had fun with David Cutcliffe's criticism. - Viloria's facebook

A fun little fun feud over the bye week.

This story probably requires a bit of background to be told fully and fairly.

Florida State strength coach Vic Viloria is extremely animated on the sidelines. He told @IraSchoffel that he gets so excited encouraging the defense and pumping up the crowd because he sees how hard the kids work all off-season and wants to support them as much as he can.

Like Viloria, Alabama's Scott Cochran worked at LSU learning the Hatch system. And like Viloria, he also jumps up and down constantly when the Tide is on defense, encouraging the players he tirelessly trains.

On Saturday night, ESPN highlighted Cochran's sideline tactics during Alabama's blowout of Mississippi State. They were apparently seen by Cutcliffe (note his reference to "TV last night.")

Florida State took it easy on Duke in the fourth quarter. The Seminoles could have run up the score. And if they played at a bit faster tempo, the Seminoles could have scored a lot more, too. Instead, they won 48-7.

With that in mind, here are Cutcliffe's tweets. Duke confirmed to @LaureKeeley that the Twitter account is in fact managed by the head coach himself. They're not wrong or incredibly disrespectful, but it is surprising that a head coach would send them.

Florida State's assistant coaches are not allowed to speak with the media during the season, but coach Vic Viloria apparently got word of the trash talk and changed his Facebook profile picture to the pic you see in the header.

Pretty funny all around.

Of course, it is much easier to talk trash to Florida State when the program you coach won't face FSU for another five years thanks to the rotating ACC schedule.
