Bet you wouldn't be saying that if FSU had won 5 in a row! Go Gators!

Go you hairy dogs. 3 victories against uf since 1990. Very lame when your only point of pride is the naming of jorts. wow!
I guess when you are the preseason #1 and you lose three games (including two to your most bitter rivals)- you'd be doing anything to distract attention away from your pathetic team.

Some Gators may wear jean shorts, but at least we don't lose to Georgia Tech - that's a disgrace to the entire SEC.

Yeah, I heard he was leaving FSU a year early to go to Oxford - despite having at least one year of football eligibility left. I guess he didn't want "the dumb" to rub off on him any more than it may already have.

Male Georgia fans in bright red pants making fun of the way that anyone else is dressed?? LOL.
Yeah, that one always cracks me up too. Guys in bright red pants talking about how other people dress. I guess when your team loses 16 out of the last 19 times - you have to come up with SOMETHING to try to make yourself feel better.

so what wrote:
Must be a Florida thing. For the writer to say it is ingrained in popular culture and college football is a lie. I've never even heard of it until today so it can't be anywhere near that widespread as this writer claims. I've followed NCAA football since the 70's, mostly SWC and Big 12 I'll admit, but gators and jorts? Never heard of it. Much ado about nothing, unless you're a gator fan or enemy, it sure as heck ain't nationwide.
You mostly hear it on Florida-Georgia weekend.
It's kind of like when people say LSU fans smell like corndogs.

Why was this story's lead featured in a box as if it was new information? From reading the story, it is obvious it was intended for reading before the game wqhich was last Saturday.

It is an international award with study at University of Oxford.
Requirements
* literary and scholastic attainments;
* energy to use one's talents to the full, as exemplified by fondness for and success in sports;
* truth, courage, devotion to duty, sympathy for and protection of the weak, kindliness, unselfishness and fellowship;
* moral force of character and instincts to lead, and to take an interest in one's fellow beings.
Lap top stealing. Theft of deceased credit cards. Strangling women. Firing off Ak-47's not included in the requirements.
You are in your early or late 30's and still live at home with your parents. You didn't get laid until you were at least 25 and probably not again until you were in your 30's. Your "smarter than everyone here" postings indicate you are probably some sort of wanna be teacher who completed your AA at TCC then moved on to FSU and majored in either Criminology or Sociology. If you graduated, you probably then worked for a while as a substitue teacher until you tired of all the high school girls making fun of you. You work out regularly in a gym with your shirt tucked in and your hair perfectly combed spending more time in looking in the mirror than most. You long to talk to any of the women, especially those that might sport the garnet and gold but you can't muster the courage so you go home and spank the dolphin to get it out of your system.

I've been a UF fan for 30 years, attended the school for 4 years, and am married to an FSU grad who knows every joke in the book about the Gators...and I've never heard of this "jorts" thing.

Typical redneck Georgia fan to come up with that one. I guess "Bulldog fans are toothless losers" doesn't quite have the same ring to it.

At least Florida beats their instate rival. Georgia Tech beat you by 3 points and 500 SAT points.

Now, this site is censoring the words red and neck if put together. I understand keeping out the F bombs, but getting rid of apostrophe (t) and red and neck is getting kind of big brotherish.

Grandma Obama. What kind of crap are you spreading. This ani't no share a Coke and a smile campaign. This is football. Team sports. Heck with your rationale we should not date other girls. Just pick your sister. Keep it one big happy family..... Ok, I get your point, even that would be like the Florida Gators.

I for one do not want a one team world, one government or one anything except God and maybe one more chicken wing.

You, obviously, are a UF graduate since you are unaware of the meaning of a Rhodes Scholar and what it requires to qualify? Has UF ever had one?
Thanks for asking, we have had 12. Rolle is your fourth. Care to wipe that egg off your face? That white stuff is egg, isn't it?
