Friday August 24, 2012 WWE star Titus O'Neal -- aka Thaddeus Bullard -- recently came back to school

Most Florida football fans know Thaddeus Bullard as old No. 90, the former backup defensive end from 1997-2000 who played in 44 games for the Gators and was as well-known for his off-the-field endeavors as what he did on the field.

Bullard was elected UF Student Body Vice President in April 2000 and won UF's Goodwill Gator Award as a sophomore for his charity work. Click here to read Bullard's bio on GatorZone.com.

Once he finished school and playing football, Bullard began pursuit of a different kind of career, eventually moving to Tampa to train to become a professional wrestler. Bullard's alter ego -- known in the WWE as Titus O'Neal -- is an up-and-coming star along with tag-team partner Darren Young.

In mid-July Bullard (or O'Neal) and Young spent a day at UF with a WWE camera crew. They met coaches, did a few Gator chomps and mostly had fun with some cheese mixed in. If you want to see the finished product, here is the video:
