    Always love to hear how the gators are sooo different and sooo wonderful, and how we all hate them for their great traditions that date all the way back to.............. 1990!!

    "Florida is the most despised school in the conference. It's always been that way because UF is UF. It's the only school without a drawl. The other 11 are in the South. Florida is not. It's in Florida. Florida's not the South. Florida is where southerners go on vacation. Or to retire."

    Please, Gainesville is very country and nobody is going on vacation there. Florida is the only state that the further south you go, the more northern it gets.

    Until Spurrier came, Florida was the only school in the SEC never to have won a football championship. Florida has never been feared and despised . . . Spurrier was. Florida is just another SEC upper-tier team.

    Now, in much of the 20th century Bama was the feared and despised team. But now, they too are just another SEC top-tier team.

    Gainesville is most assuredly the South.

    And the further south you go, the more obnoxious the people get, it's strange...........

    Florida is where NORTHERNERS go to retire. The influx of retirees from the north has really changed Florida's demographics and politics. It has more and more become defined by northern-based politics.

    Uh, hello? How many people take (or at least used to take) vactation time to go to Mardi Gras?

    Yeah, we'd just DIE to have their athletic program. Since 1990, they have SO many more football CC's and NC's (oh wait, no they don't) and baseball NC's (oops again!) than us. Oh yeah, that final four appearance must be what's setting everyone over the top!:rofl:

    You know the smack-talking has taken a turn for the worse when people start bringing up things other than sports...like terrain and geography. If you want to bring it about sports, go ahead. But the athletes didn't put the state where it is, God did.
