In all kinds of weather

GAINESVILLE -- Although Florida is mired in its worst losing streak in over two decades, not everyone in the Gator Nation is down on the team.

Left tackle Max Garcia said between eight to 10 Gator fans were waiting in the rain holding signs of support as Florida returned to Gainesville following its 19-14 loss to South Carolina.

“I was like 'Wow, that's so uplifting.' You don't see that often. I've never seen that type of support before," Garcia said. "You get tweets like 'Oh, we're still behind you' and stuff, but when you see it actually in real life, you know, our fans are still out there waiting for us, they didn't know when we were coming back, you know, so they could have been out there for hours. Stuff like that, I really appreciate that, the team really appreciated that.”

They were paid to be there dummy! Willy and his hundred dollar hand shakes can get alot done. Wow, 8-10 out of 100,000. We'll say 10 for easy math for the gator fans and alumni. Thats thats not even in the ballpark of 1%. This guy must have come from a rough family. You would think some of the parents would show with a couple of the paid students.

fan interest - an alien concept to canes

We are the boys from old Florida
Where the girls are the fairest,
The boys are the squarest
Of any old state down our way

We are all strong for old Florida
Down where the old Gators play
In all kinds of weather
We'll all stick together
for F-L-O-R-I-D-A

GO GATORS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"Gator is making excuses.."

Did I hear you correctly, you maggot jlo? No excuses? Go back through all your posts the past 2 months and all you have done is make excuses..injuries, turnovers, Driskel sucks, referees, fans, you name it you two-faced maggot.

I wall crap on the soft-top of your fem Beemer 3 series you 'mo.

There were more fans than teeth at that welcome party.

Why don't you choose one name and stick to it Moron.
Injuries are not an excuse dummy, they are real.
's your excuse for losing to VaTech and Duke?
