Florida Crocs

WKMG-TV is reporting that a large crocodile - and not the school's namesake Alligator mascot - is featured on the cover of the University of Florida's 2003 football media guide.

Florida spokesman Steve McClain said, "We asked for an alligator, we paid for an alligator and unfortunately we did not get an alligator. It's unfortunate, it's somewhat embarrassing obviously, but the bottom line is we thought we were getting an alligator."

Update: Here's a story with a picture of the cover.

After this news i have never been as happy to be a seminole because all we have to deal with is getting people kicked off the team and stealing money but now all the talk has been passed to the Crocs.
