In the last decade, Florida Gator football has reached heights that few programs can even imagine. But football success at the University of Florida is not only a recent phenomenon. Florida's winning tradition was established early, as the Gators went 49-18-5 during their first ten seasons (1906-15). And even in the years when Florida wasn't winning football, the loyal Gator fans enthusiastically cheered the team's effort. On football Saturday's in the Fall, Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, known to all as the Swamp, draws 83,000 spirited fans for each home game. This book brings all the Gator tales to life. Whether it's winning championships or enduring the dry spells, both on and off the field, this book keeps alive the humor and spirit that is Florida Gator football.
