Can we keep the trophy?

Although Virginia and Florida State don't play very often now, there is a trophy given to the winner.
It's named after Thomas Jefferson and his grandson Frances Eppes VII, who served on the board at the founding of what became Florida State University.
But Eppes owned slaves.
So his statue of campus may be moved.
Even though students voted two years ago to keep the statue where it was.
Just give Virginia the trophy, and some of the money Florida State's football program earns.
