Remember former Gators’ QB Will Grier?
After a promising first half of the 2015 season, he was sidelined due to NCAA rules violations concerning an over-the-counter supplement containing a banned substance. After a puzzling dismissal from Florida, the former Gator now finds himself in the Mountain State, where he is making a run at West Virginia’s quarterback job.
Mountaineer fans are turning the Gators loss into their gain, and they’re developing a bit of a man crush on Grier along the way. His 12-of-18, 202-yard passing day at their spring game only added to the hype.
It started pregame with some love for the QBs flow, and it continued from there:

There’s even a Twitter account for his 2017 Heisman campaign:

Some Florida fans, however, are less than happy about this development.
Helpful advice for Gators today. Focus on time with your family and friends, and FORGET ABOUT WILL GRIER
