Hello there, faithful reader of Hail Florida Hail. You have probably stumbled upon us super excited to see that Florida football is number one. After all, it’s been a rough couple of years in Gainesville, and Gator fans are desperate for any good news.
Saturday Down South just made a list, and the Florida Gators were on top. You may be wondering what it is for. Is it recruiting? Predictions for 2023? Could it be the most improved team during Spring practice?
Florida Football: It’s all about the drip
So yeah, Florida was deemed by Saturday Down South to have the best color scheme in the SEC.
Plan the parade.
Now before you fire off the angry comment that, quite frankly, we are not going to read accusing us of clickbait, this is positive news. After all, there is a reason for the phrase “Look good, feel good, play good.”
We’re also going to ignore Alabama being 12th on this list as it relates to this phrase.
But take the bottom six schools on this list. As someone who went to a high school whose colors were maroon and white, I can confirm that it’s a hard color to wear in public and feel confident.
Missouri’s color scheme looks like a six-year-old that had too much fun in the snow.
Kentucky has the most generic mascot and color scheme in America.
I’m partial to the color black, so it’s disappointing to see the puke inside a pumpkin orange of Tennesee ahead of them.
Auburn, Ole Miss, and LSU are all distinctive and fine but here is where the real advantage of Florida’s color scheme comes into play; recruits’ photo shoots.
In the modern world of putting on team gear and doing a photo shoot, you want something that is going to stand out and pop. There is almost no mistaking the orange and blue for Florida for any other school.
So step one for Billy Napier to get a number one recruiting class for Florida football is to remind recruits they are putting on the undeniable number one color scheme.
Step two is coming up with the NIL money.
Well, can’t be number one at everything.
