Aug. 29, 2011: During a preseason game against Tampa Bay, Dolphins CEO Mike Dee and VP/Special Adviser Nat Moore, a Florida grad, announced the team would honor the 2009 National Champion Florida Gators at Sun Life Stadium. The well-meaning idea was met with outrage by fans of Miami's pro and college football teams. Dolphins' fans hated it because the team was waiting for Tim Tebow to come to town with the Broncos to hold the event. Hurricanes fans hated it because the Gators were to be honored on the `Canes' home field.
