GAINESVILLE, Fla. — The Florida-Georgia rivalry may have a new twist, this one courtesy of Georgia assistant coach Todd Grantham.

A television snapshot from Sun Sports in Florida shows Grantham, the Bulldogs' defensive coordinator, seemingly giving the choke sign as Florida's Chas Henry lined up for the winning field goal Saturday in Jacksonville.

Henry drilled the 37-yarder, ending Florida's three-game losing streak and giving the Gators their 18th win in the past 21 years against Georgia.

Florida coach Urban Meyer and quarterback John Brantley said they heard about it, but neither saw it from across the field.

Georgia coach Mark Richt does not normally speak to the media after Monday's practice, and the school did not respond to requests for comment from either Richt or Grantham.
