Florida player hits LSU punt returner hard, then gets hit even harder by his UF teammate (VIDEO)

One of the top rules of football celebrations should be that you never hit your teammate harder than he just hit the opponent.

Florida's Loucheiz Purifoy was excited about the big hit he made on LSU punt returner Odell Beckham Jr. That is, until he was gesturing to the crowd with his back turned to the field and he got blasted by Matt Elam. Elam happens to be Purifoy's teammate.

Purifoy tumbled to the ground, and seemed ready to fight Elam when he realized it was his own teammate that cracked him in the back and sent him sprawling. It was a legitimately hard hit and a truly awkward moment. Gonna need to work on those celebrations, Florida.
