Babies, don’t let your mommas grow up to be Gators.

If this isn’t child abuse, they ought to change the law.

… Her son’s name says it all: Spurrier Urban Wiley, a name that honors two of the schools greatest football coaches.

“My husband and I got married in 1996, when Spurrier won the championships,” she said, “and then we conceived in 2006 when Urban Meyer won the championship.”

It was a seemingly perfect fit for these Florida fanatics, until now. So mom’s ready for a change.

“I want to change his middle name,” she said.

And if this kid hasn’t suffered enough already…

… Wiley’s husband isn’t on board with the change, and she said she won’t officially change her son’s name unless her husband agrees.

If he does, she’s thinking Tim after Tim Tebow, the great Gator quarterback who is becoming a star in the NFL.

No word on whether Spur sports a mullet and jorts.  Yet.

    Can’t believe they didn’t consider Will or Charlie for a middle name.

    Baby that’s nasty! Why you do that?


  3. Go Dawgs!

    I bet she’s a lawyer or a doctor.

    Was Corrine Brown not available?

    This reminds me a little bit of those Bama folks naming their kids Saban after he took over the mothership. I was waiting for him to leave them hanging after a few years, but he may be entrenched here, unless backing into BCS title games and basking in the glow of Finebaum’s skull gets old sometime.

    I just puked on my keyboard.


  7. Beats the heck out of some of the names floating out of the hood these days.

    You know, I can see putting Steve in there. Or even Urban. But, Spurrier Urban? I have an idea for them. Spurchamp Zookban.

    She should have named him “Swirly McAsskicked” and been done with it.

    My wife and I recently had a baby girl, and I’m just amazed at the sheer number of stupid names that parents are saddling kids with these days.

      Agreed on the stupid names. Heck, my wife and I even looked at the initials. I have a friend with several older brothers. His initials were FAG. As soon as he came of age, he changed his middle name to a J. You’ve got to look at that stuff, or just take the Johnny Cash approach:

    So Gator fans name their kids like Dawg fans name their Pet Bulldawgs…

    If you run 85 snaps on the number 1 ranked team in the country in a conference championship game, place on your roster 2 of the most sought RBs in the country, and have an offense improving the past 2 years, well…how many snaps do you think Crowell and Marshall will have next season. Some bloggers say the backfield is crowded.
    Opposing DCs take issue with that statement. I’d think those DC will say the Dawgs have too many rushing plays in their playbook. Let’s see…about 45-55 rushes…that’s about 25 per each…100+ yards each…rotating in & out fresh…have fast do you think the OC can run a no huddle next year!

    “Spurrier Urban Wiley”

    They stole it from Squidbillies


  13. Cojones

    Name him Gabriel or Ezekiel and encourage him to play in The Redcoat Band, Horn Section.

    Named mine Thomas Jefferson, Jon-Paul and Virginia Lee. Not a histrory buff in the bunch.


  14. It sounds like something out of a cartoon, which in all truth, is a fair representation of the looks of the Gator program just now.
