Rivalry Reviewed is a series about our team’s biggest rivals. We dig deep into how the school showcases themselves, including colors, logos, uniforms, and mascots. We also talk about traditions that make each school unique. The kicker? All of these topics will be from one of your school’s biggest rival.
To kickoff the Rivalry Reviewed series, we took a look at one of Florida’s most bitter rivals, Florida State. Depending upon which decade you started rooting for the Gators, the title of UF’s biggest rival is split between two schools: UGA and FSU. Those whom became fans before 1990 will argue that their hatred for Georgia outweighs their disgust for Florida State. Those whom have started rooting for the Gators after Steve Spurrier will tell you the Seminoles hold the most animosity with the Bulldogs coming up in second. The Florida Gators and Georgia Bulldogs have a rich history of games that surely haven’t disappointed. Some Florida fans who got into UF athletics after 1990 don’t realize that the Gators and Dawgs were once pretty competitive. It had been an automatic win for Florida on the football schedule for 20 years. Now, with Georgia winning three straight in the football series, I think they’re getting a taste of the rivalry in full force. I’ve always subscribed to the thought that Georgia was Florida’s biggest rival. There’s usually more on the line with the SEC East crown at stake a lot of the time. Let’s take a look at everything we love to hate about the Bulldogs as Gators fans.
