    Florida sending out the most disturbing recruiting graphic we’ve ever seen


    It’s been a tradition for Florida recruits to pull out a Chucky doll when they make the announcement that they’ve signed with the Gators. It’s certainly unique, and a bit creepy, when the horror movie doll makes its appearance.

    But it’s nowhere near as creepy as the graphic that Florida has recently sent out to recruits. And of course, it features that Chucky doll again.

    Dakota Mitchell, a 3-star safety in the 2021 class, tweeted the Chucky graphic that he received from the Gators on Wednesday, giving fans the opportunity to see it.


    Mitchell shared the image on Wednesday:

    The Chucky doll tradition was started by defensive linemen earlier this decade, but it later expanded to include other positions and recruits who were making their decision to attend Florida. Now, there have been other schools to use it as well, but it originally started with the Gators.

    And although that’s the case, no school has made a Chucky-themed recruiting graphic like this one from Florida. So, the Gators are still unique in that regard.

    I don't think there really is a connection between UF and Chucky. I think it just started with Easley (?) taking his doll to games and sort of caught on. For some reason, other players from other schools have stolen it.

    Really glad to see Cowart pulled it together and resurrected his career. He even admits he made a mistake not coming to UF.

    New England Patriots. Left Auburn, got his life in order and transferred to Maryland. Had a solid year and got drafted in 5th round. Hasn't gotten to play much yet.

    That is awesome! Yes it originated with Easley. Then we had some recruits use it during their announcements. Then some decided to troll us with it. That is creative and bad ass.

    We could have the “turnover Chucky.”

    The graphic..well... I got a strange vibe from it....

    It sort of looks like a booster's version of the "claw" vending machine......
    Put $100K in the slot...and pick up a recruit. :D

    The former players started it, so... It's their thing and tie to Gator football.

    We had the turnover board when Collins was here. Before it was trendy though.
