This month I am going to talk about why going to your school’s football games is an extremely important part of your college experience. Ever since I was a little kid, I dreamed of going to the University of Florida. Both of my parents attended the school, and I grew up watching Gator football games. I also grew up attending at least one Gator football game every year. Some of my fondest childhood memories have come from Gator football games. Whether it was getting Krispy Kreme donuts at 7 in the morning before our tailgate, or watching Tim Tebow play his last game in the Swamp, I always make great memories when I attend Gator football games.
Being a die-hard Gator fan for the past eighteen years, I, like many other kids at UF, have been waiting for the day I could finally display my school pride as a student here. Over the years of attending football games, I have seen it all- orange and blue striped overalls, jorts, UF-colored Heelys, and even a full UF-themed suit. Game day spirit really is something else when at a big southern state school, so there is extremely little that will be too outrageous when it comes to attire.
Sadly, football season is over, but this doesn't mean that there aren't fun sports in store for you. Matt shares some of his favorites for you here:
