It’s almost time for Gators Football ladies and gentlemen. Plenty of sub plots to be going on this year: Will Tebow win the Heisman again? Can this team be the fastest team in the nation as Urban Meyer hopes?
Or should we think of other things like “How hot is the cheerleading squad this year?” and “Which players have a shot at the NFL?”
Whatever your thought is, and however you may wish to interpret this team, here are seven sure fire reasons to keep track of the Gators this year.
A History of Football
Florida first fielded an official football team in 1906. Since then, the Gators have played in 34 bowl games, won seven Southeastern Conference titles, produced 135 All-Americans coming into the 2006 season, 35 NFL first round draft choices and three Heisman Trophy winners.
An Alligator is tough, period
It’s just a badass mascot to have. And to use the term “swamp” when referring to visiting teams coming to play at Florida is pretty sweet too.
If there is a college coach as revered as Nick Saban, it may very well be Urban Meyer. This guy is the man.
Let’s face it. Urban knows how hot his daughter is and the chance of seeing her on national television would be an event unto itself.
Tim Tebow will inevitably hit on Erin Andrews
Not only will it be fun to watch this guy possibly win another Heisman. We get to watch him hit on one of the hottest newscasters around.
The Chance we See Joaquim Noah at a Game
I’m not saying that seeing Noah will be fun by any means. However, watching him potentially hit on a UF freshman will provide me material for at least a week
