The Florida Gators made a big mistake in their printing of their 2014 calender.
Here is a photo of “Mr. July” in this year’s sports calender:

According to ESPN Boston, the calender was approved before Aaron Hernandez was incarcerated last spring.
Officials approved the calendar last spring, months before the arrest, said Florida spokesman Daniel Apple. The calendars’ maker, Turner Licensing, a division of Perfect Timing Inc., did not immediately respond to an email seeking comment.
Apple said the calendar was not produced by the university, but a third party. Since it’s already been printed and distributed for sale, there’s not much the school can do, Apple said.
They added that the calenders that have already been printed will not be recalled, which leaves them out for pretty much anybody to purchase.
Talk about a little mishap. Putting someone who is currently in jail on more than one murder charge on your school calender is about as bad as it gets, and it sounds like there is not much they can do to fix it.
Aaron Hernandez played for the Gators for three years, where he was extremely productive. He racked up a total of 111 catches, 1,382 yards, and 12 touchdowns.
