Start 'em up: Gators fly Stones' plane to Omaha

Florida flies to CWS in style


OMAHA, Neb. – The Florida Gators baseball arrived in style for the College World Series.

The Gators flew to Omaha aboard the Rolling Stones' private jet.

The legendary Stones have a concert at the Citrus Bowl in Orlando on Friday night, so while the NCAA was planning Florida's travel plans, Mick, Keith and the rest of the gang's plane was available and close by.

So, the favored Gators, who will face Miami on Saturday night, landed at the College World Series in the same aircraft used by Mick Jagger.

Unfortunately for the players, the only Mick on their flight was Mick Hubert, the "Voice of the Gators."
