In all kinds of weather, we’ll all stick together.

That’s one of the last lines of the popular Florida song, “We Are The Boys.” The song was written in 1919 by UF students Robert Swanson and John Icenhour, and by the 1930’s, it was a key part of the Pride of the Sunshine’s repertoire during Florida football games. In the early 1970’s, it was determined that the performance of the song would be best utilized after the third quarter, and to this day, Gator fans sing that song after the end of the third quarter to remind themselves what they are a part of- a proud and loyal fan base.

That’s not to say things always go swimmingly for Florida. They don’t. There were some stormy days in Gainesville recently, with the departure of Billy Donovan and the unacceptable failure that was the Will Muschamp tenure. Sometimes as fans, all you can do is grit your teeth and wait for the storm to be over. But after every storm, a rainbow appears. And that rainbow brings the hope that the loyal fans will soon have reason to be proud again.

That’s where this site comes in.

There will be good times, and there will be bad times for Gator sports. We’re here to keep you up to date on your Gators. And we do that in a variety of ways. Between breaking news, breakdowns, previews, opinion pieces, speaking directly with Gator recruits, and even occasional reminders of why it’s great to be a Gator, we provide everything you could look for in a Florida Gators blog, both when the sun is shining bright or when the storm clouds open up on the Gators.

In other words, in all kinds of weather.

  1. I’m doing a rhetorical analysis for an assignment in school. I’m a student at UCF but have been a gator fan since birth. I still cheer for the gators every weekend and wish that UCF and UF would play. I was wondering if you could tell me more about yourself (ie. your degree from UF) and other information that will help me write about why you write what you write. Thank you so much and I enjoy every single one of your articles and tweets. Keep it up an #iakow

  2. College football died tonight. If the players don’t want to win, I won’t be excited to watch them play. Opt outs? How about we opt out of your season and the ticket sales no longer justify your scholarship? I already think the pros are boring.
