This tape is of a Gator Growl skit titled “The Gator Zone” recorded on September 11, 1997.  The beginning is presented as an episode of the “Twilight Zone” and the skit is a parody of the film “Back to the Future”.  A student named Albert dreams about the victory of the Gator football team but awakens to find that all Gainesville has morphed into FSU Seminole fans.  John Lombardi plays the scientist who enlists Albert’s assistance.  The “Doctor” shows a printed plan to Albert which will involve Albert taking the Heisman Trophy to the top of Century Tower.  Albert is shown stealing the Heisman Trophy from Coach Spurrier’s office and taking it to the top of Century Tower.  A lightning strike then explodes Century Tower and all ends with equilibrium in the space/time continuum restored and the Gator football team as the winning team.
