Jorts are just the beginnig. Mullet cut, cut up T shirt, wallet on a chain, Natty Light in hand. Real beauties. On Saturday don't look at them twice. They'll either want to fight or mate.

FSU will never be able to get past the fact that their college was an "all women college" and U of F was an "all men college" years back. I think it is time both got over it. I've often wished all the State colleges and universities were "one" and just did away with all the stupid rivalries. Just have different locations for convenience sake and make them all the same name followed by "@ such and such" so we stop these stupid "we're better than you" games.

Are you for real? What a party pooper. As an FSU parent, we've got to get our shots at UF when we can. They're a great team. Most folks have fun with it-it's harmless.

I guess if you can't beat 'em on the field you have to figure out some other area to feel superior. How about academics and all those great doctors FSU turns out, oh wait, that goes to the Gators too, oh I know Law Schools, oh wait, Gators again. I guess there's always the hospitality management field and your famous alumni, Pee Wee Herman and Burt Reynolds. Yeah, I guess Gators Wear Jean Shorts is about all you got. I'd bet money Bobby or Mrs Bobby have a pair of them.

GO NOLES! Oh yeah in the pole hat counts, the BCS Florida is 4 not 2. But I guess the Sentinel would use the AP pole.

Our days are ahead nole fans. With Tebow out of the way in 2 years we will make quick work of the Gators. Watch for an upset tomorrow!!!

There's nothing wrong with African American men wearing jean shorts. The problem is when Caucasians try to pull it off either by buying the traditional Levi brand jean shorts, by wearing the longer baggie style jean short (as preferred by young black men and teens), or the most aggregious of all - actually fashioning their own pair of jorts with scissors from a normal pair of jeans. I suspect this latter skanky, redneck style of jort - which is more often preferred by skanky white rednecks and hillbillies - is the main reason why white people view jorts as a very bad fashion statement.

Daisy Duke looked pretty good in cut off jean shorts. I guess those Georgia boys don't like them on her as well.
