The shoes quarterback Chris Leak wore in the 2007 Bowl Championship Series title game have been put up for auction on eBay, with a buy it now price of $10,000.
A memorabilia company purchased the shoes from Leak. The quarterback signed each shoe and wrote "Game Worn BCS Title Game 2006" on the each toe. Leak is pictured below wearing the shoes in the game.
The memorabilia company also purchased the helmet Leak wore during the Army All-American game in 2003. This item has a buy it now price of $2,500.
Leak, who was the MVP of the game, also signed the helmet.
It has been a bizarre couple of weeks in Gainesville, starting with word that Leak's successor, Tim Tebow, recently helped circumcise impoverished children in the Philippines.
Last Friday, Florida safety Jamar Hornsby was kicked off the team after he was charged with credit card theft and fraudulent use of a credit card. The card in question belonged to a Florida student who died in an October 2007 motorcycle accident that also claimed the life of walk-on defensive back Michael Guilford.
Last weekend, offensive lineman Matt Patchan was shot in a shoulder during an incident at a park in Tampa. Patchan's injury is not life-threatening and he is expected to make a full recovery.
