. The claim was that in 1962, FSU’s team doctor –

R.A. Johnson

– invented what he called Seminole Firewater. The first thing you probably thought was “HUH?!?”

Gatorade has always been linked – and it seems rightfully so – to the University of Florida. Now even the guy who wrote a book about the subject – Darren Rovell – is wondering what’s going on.

Doesn’t it seem like we would’ve heard about this well before now if it were in fact true? You can check the findings for yourself, but everything seems pretty sketchy. So if you’re a Gator, keep on claiming the sports drink. There’s no real reason to believe otherwise.
