Senior Tebow Day festivites will take place on Saturday with the annual tilt with Florida State. By all indications, it’s sure to be a rather emotional event.
Now for you fans out there that are attending this tear jerker, the University of Florida implores you to show up a support their living legend. And the only way you can do so is to wear your eye black just as Tim does.
Verne and Gary are showing you the way.
Florida fans are urging everyone to wear eye black Saturday — with or without inscribed bible verses — in honor of quarterback Tim Tebow’s final home game.
It’s a fitting tribute to a player who wants to be remembered more for what he accomplishes off the field than on it.
“I think it’s great,” coach Urban Meyer said. “I’ve got three children. I don’t mind when my daughter, my middle daughter Gigi, texts me every time what he’s wearing. She looks up the verse and texts it to me. I think that’s pretty cool.”
As for the rest of you UF seniors, they’ll be a small pregame ceremony in Gate 15’s bathroom. There will hang your jersey and an action shot of you. Just a small token of thanks for all you’ve done for the University of Florida.
