We revived Hail Florida Hail two years ago to stay engaged with the Gators. As we have grown, we have continued to strive to provide quality content while acknowledging who we are as a site. We are a blog, and thus, we focus more on the commentary side of the Gators, taking pieces of a puzzle and crafting narratives out of them. Our goal as part of the Fansided network is to provide a voice from the fan's side. We hope to continue exploring all avenues of the Gators, both positive and negative. If you want your voice heard, we are always looking for part-time writers to join the team, and if you go on Fansided's website, you can submit a proposal and be on your way.
