Baylor QB Nick Florence will not try to fill RGIII's Superman Socks.

Baylor starting quarterback Nick Florence has some big shoes to fill. Those would be the ones belonging to last year's Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III, who now plays for the Washington Redskins. One thing that Florence will not apparently try to fill is RGIII's legendary Superman socks, as he goes for more normal dress sock fare.

“I'm just wearing normal brown dress socks,” Florence said, chuckling at the thought of wearing Superman-inspired footwear like his predecessor. “I'm just going to be me. ... Just call me Nick. I'm just a normal guy.”

While it is good to hear that Florence seems to have a more down-to-Earth attitude, Bears fans are bound to be hoping that is on-the-field performance is at least good enough from keeping Baylor from crashing back to Earth.
