I saw on the official Gator Football twitter account that Ricky Nattiel was at practice yesterday. However, I noticed he appeared to be wearing surgical scrubs in a photo of him watching the action alongside McElwain:
I did some research on his post-football life and found nothing to suggest that he became a doctor or works in the medical industry. He was helping coach high school football at Trinity in Ocala at one point, from what I understand.
My theory is that he was in Gainesville on some other business and subsequently received an invite to drop by practice. However, he was wearing business attire and didn't want to sweat in his nicer clothes, so someone from the UAA got him some scrubs from Shands to wear while he was out on the field.
I think it's sad that this program has become so cheap that we can't even provide our special visitors with team apparel to make them more comfortable. Tennessee and Arkansas didn't seem to have a problem hooking Tebow up with official gear when he visited their practices:
How bush league of us to have visitors out there in surgical scrubs. That's what churches give to their youth groups to wear while working manual labor on mission trips in the third world.
Just when I think our leadership can't possibly lower the bar any further, they prove me wrong and sink to new levels.
