    Agreed. Will ER roam the stands or was it just the one time?

    really cool idea. I think it's a different alum every week, kind of like Take Me Out to The Ballgame at Wrigley.

    Nice work.

    In keeping with 2 Bits spirit they should use older Gator Greats, even older than E Rhett.

    Yet another recruiting "by the way." Even as an old man you will be welcomed back, to the roar of the crowd.....

    They'll get former Gators of all ages to do this. It wouldn't be the great idea it is if they didn't.

    In keeping with the 2 Bits spirit, should they all be Citadel alumni like Mr. Two Bits Edmondson?

    Will there be an Honorary Two Bits for big road games also?

    If so we ALLLLLLLLL know the perfect man for the job for this game:

    [​IMG]

    Sorry about the shirt, it's the most recent pic I could find, from while his son-in-law Kiffin was still HC at UT.

    The comical beauty of this would be that it would enrage a sizable portion of the UM fans out of their freakin' minds, but it's not like it would get their young players fired up or anything. They are oblivious to the story.

    Seriously, how outrageous would that be? I'm laughing just thinking about it.

    He could do a new twist on the traditional Two Bits cheer by invoking a legendary Gator story AND a gator dance move from a legendary movie!

    "Two bits...four bits...six bits...a dollar!

    All for the Gators...

    FLOP DOWN AND HOLLER!!!"


    ....aaannnd everybody drops down and does "The Gator" from Animal House.

    RELAX, it's Sun Life Stadium, not the old Orange Bowl. Nobody will need tetanus shots from flopping in the bleachers.

    He'd need a handler to get him to the game and keep him vertical. That face looks like he fell hard off the wagon again.

    I do find it hilarious that scUM remains incensed at that poor sportsmanship moment. They embraced, encouraged, rewarded and continue to celebrate the worst unsportsmanlike conduct in NCAA history - including showboating, self-aggrandizement, taunting, and bounties.

    This game???? Yours is funny, but my serious desire would be one of these:

    Carlos Alvarez
    James Jones
    Wilber Marshall

    And having Two-Bits rallying sections during a game is sorely missed. Especially away games.

    I didn't want to go there in my earlier post but since you brought it up, my understanding is that as of now he is still in recovery and is managing to hold it down in the real estate field again.

    That said, I'm familiar with his track record and would personally volunteer to go get him from Tampa! I'm picturing that movie "My Favorite Year," with Peter O'Toole. lol

    I do hope he is well and stays clean. Very sad if not.

    I am pretty sure that the University is also planning on using this as a fundraising gimmick for major contributors. Donate $100,000 and lead a cheer at the Swamp.
