B.J. Upton is an MLB free agent, but he's made his NCAA football allegiance quite clear

Virginia native B.J. Upton was drafted straight out of high school by the Rays, so he doesn't have an alma mater to support during college football season. His tweet of a personalized jersey (and gloves to boot) on Tuesday, however, made it quite clear where his loyalties lie.

Bossman Junior's time playing in the Sunshine State has clearly rubbed off on him. And if you're wondering why his support is directed toward Tallahassee rather than Gainesville, the fact that he was an FSU commitment before signing with Tampa Bay might have something to do with it.
