Gators Set To Unveil Statues At Spring Game

At halftime of this year’s spring game, Florida officials will unveil three life-sized statues of the Gators’ Heisman Trophy winners: Steve Spurrier, Danny Wuerffel and Tim Tebow.

The three statues — which will be installed on the west side of Ben Hill Griffin Stadium — weigh a combined 17,000 pounds.  According to UF officials, all three honorees will have a level of participation in the event.  (Meaning Spurrier will probably send along a video message while Tebow and Wuerffel attend.)

We’ve got no problems with statues.  Tennessee added a statue of former coach Robert Neyland last fall.  And Alabama will add a state of Nick Saban at its spring game.  (In case you’re wondering, every Bama coach to win a national title gets a statue.)  We believe these monuments are a nice way to celebrate tradition.

Just as long as they don’t remind us of Dr. Zaius.
