Gator fans take billboard dig at FSU counterparts

Last year, some Ohio State fans — specifically, Gator Fans Dig.jpg

According to the Orlando Sentinel, Gatortailgating.com is collecting donations for a billboard to be placed on I-10 just outside of Tallahassee as a gentle reminder that the Seminoles have not beaten the Gators since November of 2003.  And, really, it’s just a “friendly message” from one college fan base to another, and the organization behind the billboard is just trying to have a little fun at the expense of with their counterparts.

From the Gatortailgating website:

We truly feel that the billboard will be all in good fun. Far from being “in their face,” the billboard’s placement will be located on I-10 westbound outside of Tallahassee, not in their city limits, and certainly not where FSU fans are going to see it every day. Of course they’re going to see it at some point- but so will thousands of Gator fans who live in the Tallahassee area, as well as Gator fans who will be making the trip up for the game this year. This rivalry has a 50+ year history, and even our own coaches, namely Spurrier (who dubbed FSU “Free Shoes University”) and Meyer, who refers to FSU as “The School Out West,” publicly poke fun at them. Lately the rivalry hasn’t been as heated as in years past, and we’re just trying to spice it up a bit- we hardly feel like we’re taking it too far.

Just remember, Seminole Nation, they’re not laughing with you, they’re laughing at you.

Wait, did I say that right?

    They were going to put it in Gainesville, but then they realized none of their fans could read it.

    I am not a UF or FSU fan but I find this to be quite lame
    UF beating FSU and rubbing it in like this makes UF look small and like a little brother

    Such a waste. Just think of all the jorts and crocs that could have been bought for the needy of Gainesville.

    Oh, how cute. Gators want to be Buckeyes.

    Don’t get mad. Just try to make next year’s game more competitive. We’ve beaten you guys by 30+ points in the last 3 years.

    @overrated gators:
    The next time we total 81 yards for a WHOLE game….a national championship game I might add….then you can say we want to be like the Buckeyes. Lol….
    By the way….what team did you say you were a fan of?

    Hey remember when the Buckeyes won a bowl game against the SEC…oh wait no they’re 0-8.

    Yeah, it’s too bad that OSU is dragging down the Big Ten. Otherwise the head to head bowl record would be in favor of the Big Ten as opposed to the current .500 vs. the best conference in college football. So much for that “conference superiority” thingy I hear so much about.
    On behalf of Buckeye fans, I apologize to the other 10 B10 schools. I’m sorry that OSU has ruined the opportunity to make the .500 record vs. the SEC into a .500+ record.
    You southerners are a precious bunch.

    Michigan fans started this trend during the John Cooper years; Buckeye fans later returned the favor.
    Not only have Gator fans shown no originality by being Copy Cats of this trend – they’ve just provided Jimbo and the Noles with a large, season long, local piece of bulletin board material.
    This will add some spice to the annual show down in November.

    We’ll see now that Jesus has left to flop in the pros.

    Hey it’s funny, get over it if you take it personally.

  13. vcufan01 says: Apr 16, 2010 10:06 PM

    Great – now you’ve given Hokie fans the idea to put a similar billboard up on I-64 West just outside of Charlottesville….

  14. GatorGirl4Life says: Apr 20, 2010 4:57 PM

    I agree with I gottz5onit! It’s funny get over it! If FSU could ever get up on us by 6 games they’d do the same damn thing! It keeps the competition healthy, quit sounding like a bunch of wussies! It’s football, not psychology class!
