    "Lawrence Wright, who famously uttered the phrase, “If you ain’t a Gator, ya Gator bait, baby” after a 1995 win over Florida State at The Swamp, was livid after the announcement that UF will stop using the cheer."

    Lawrence Wright played safety and is black. He is credited with the term Gator Bait and the origin of the cheer.

    Were any Confederate officers named Florida? If so, that could cause real problems!
