Steve Spurrier throws Bolt's 'To The World' pose after honor
GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) After having Florida Field named after him and then leading 90,000 rain-soaked fans in a pre-game cheer, Steve Spurrier did something no one could have seen coming.
He posed like Usain Bolt.
Yep, the 71-year-old retired coached flashed Bolt's ''To The World'' pose to all four sides of the newly renamed Steve Spurrier-Florida Field at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on Saturday. It drew a raucous ovation from fans on hand for No. 25 Florida's season opener against seemingly overmatched UMass.
Many of them were there for Spurrier, who was honored in a number of ways. Not only was the field named after him, but Spurrier served as the honorary ''Mr. Two Bits.'' At halftime, he will recognized again for the 50th anniversary of his 1966 Heisman Trophy and honored along with the 1996 national championship team.
