Georgia Fans Drive Cross-Country To Give Mike Bobo Heartwarming Gift


Former Georgia quarterback and offensive coordinator Mike Bobo was checked into the hospital roughly two weeks before the start of the college football season with numbness in his feet.

Though released from care after 10 days, the now Colorado State head coach is still having some difficulty walking as he leads his Rams team into a week three clash with Florida.

Which is why two University of Georgia boosters drove across the country to deliver Bobo a carved wooden cane to aid in his recovery.

During practice on Wednesday, according to the The Coloradoan, Bobo was told there was a husband and wife pair waiting outside the gates with a gift for him.

Bobo recognized the boosters from his long tenure in Athens as they presented him with the heartwarming gift.

“As soon as I walked out there, I recognized her and her husband,” Bobo said. “I said ‘what are ya’ll doing? Are you making a trip?’ They said, ‘nah, wanted to come see you.’ That means a lot.”

Bobo was forced to coach the first game of the season from the booth, but has since coached the last two from the sidelines. Colorado State started the season off 0-2, with losses to Hawaii and Colorado, but beat Arkansas last week 34-27.

“This might be my good luck cane, right here,” said Bobo, who played quarterback at Georgia from 1993-97 and coached in Athens for 14 years prior to accepting a job as Colorado State’s head coach.

The Rams play the Florida Gators this weekend in Gainesville. The game will kickoff at 4:00 p.m. and will air on the SEC Network.
