Tuesday September 3, 2013 Photo Blog: Errict Rhett as Mr. Two Bits

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Gators head coach Will Muschamp's announcement last week to honor Florida's 'Mr. Two Bits' tradition by inviting a celebrity Gator back to campus for each home game was popular among fans.

The new tradition got off to a rousing start thanks to former Gators running back Errict Rhett's lively effort on Saturday prior to the season opener against Toledo.

Rhett, as they say, came to play. He even dressed in the familiar yellow shirt and orange-and-blue tie worn by the original 'Mr. Two Bits,' retired Tampa insurance man George Edmondson.

If you didn't see Rhett's performance, here are some images that capture him in action:
