Florida-Georgia is an experience like no other. It’s a spirited mix of college tailgating, SEC rivalry at its best, and heated insults spewed between an evenly split crowd. The most creative and disarming of all insults being, “Gators wear jean shorts!” The first year I heard it, I asked a Georgia fan how it started, and he had no idea. Three years later, I’ve finally gotten to the bottom of things. So, without further delay, I give you the history of the “Gators wear jean shorts” insult.

It started back in 1997. Georgia hadn’t won a game in years, and some of their fans realized it’s hard to effectively talk trash when your team can’t back it up (take the hint, FSU). So Georgia fans, Kevin Davis and his fraternity brothers made their way to the stadium, helpless while Gators taunted and chomped at them. They worked desperately to come up with creative insults. Answering their prayers, a Gator fan strolled by wearing jean shorts, and Davis jumped on the opportunity. “Gators wear jean shorts!” he declared, and his friends began chanting the insult. They continued the chant during the game, and it caught on like wildfire. So many Dawgs were desperate to mock the defending national champs in any way they could, and they had found a way.

GatorTailgating.com is doing a series of articles on where and how to tailgate at all of the Gator Football away games. This is the fourth part of our series detailing where and what to look out for in Jacksonville, Florida for the annual Florida-Georgia Game. Go Gators!

1. Where are the good and bad areas of town for motels to stay in the night before/after the big game?

Don’t stay in the hotels on Lane Avenue and Normandy Boulevard. They are old, run down, and trashy. Avoiding the Westside hotels altogether is a fairly good idea. Hotels over in Ponta Vedra and on Jacksonville Beach aren’t too bad, but be sure to do your research before reserving your room. There are some older hotels over on the beach too that aren’t that nice. Staying in Amelia Island (north of Jacksonville) is always really fun, but be aware that it will be packed with Georgia fans due to being north of Jacksonville.

I hate Georgia with a passion, and you as a Gator fan should too. Certainly, we as Gators have our share of rivals with Tennessee, Florida State, Miami, and others; but here are ten reasons why Georgia should be at the top of your hate list:

1. If I have to hear about Lindsay Scott and "Run Lindsay Run" again, I will go off on someone in red and black. It was one play and one win back in the 80's that is completely irrelevant today. (Do you hear us talking about Bell to Nattiel every year?)

2. They consider themselves more classy than Florida fans because they dress up for the games in dress pants, button-ups, and ties. I think they look like their mom dressed them for church instead of a football game. Comfort beats looking like an over-dressed tool any day. Also, lose the red pants. They look like you stole them off the homeless clown under the Modis building.

Thanks to our friends over at Tailgating Ideas, this gem of a photo was taken at a game in Baton Rouge. Beer Pong is certainly one of the staples of a good tailgate, but who knew that 10 year olds were allowed to play? I guess that's why tailgating is so popular in Death Valley - they get 'em started early.

With a closer look, our friends at tailgating Ideas have noticed that there's actually Sprite and a water bottle on the table -so maybe it isn't as bad as it looks. But, you never know what those damn baby corn dogs will do - especially at a tailgate.

After Florida's embarrassing 42-13 loss to Missouri, it's getting to a point where it's not "if," but "when" head coach Will Muschamp will be fired.

Have you ever been at a tailgate and needed a wingman? Maybe a couple cute co-eds showed up and you needed that backup to go start a conversation? All guys know that having a wingman is extremely important in all sorts of situations, and tailgating is not alone in it's need for one.

Although the Gator My Wingman can't help you hit on the coeds, it can do a couple other things you've needed at your tailgate - like holding your beverage of choice, your plate of food, and showing some more of that true orange and blue spirit. The My Wingman is your own personal miniature football serving man.  He will add function and conversation to any tailgate or party!  He actually was shown on ESPN during the Gators vs. Missouri Tigers broadcast. Here's a screenshot:

 Missouri's Marcus Murphy started the game with a 96-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. He started the second half with an 81-yard punt return for a score. The plays in between and after were bad for the Florida Gators, too.

Get the picture?

Whether it was Murphy zipping through Florida's special teams, or running for his team's lone TD from scrimmage, or the Gators turning the ball over six times, it was all Mizzou Saturday night at The Swamp, as the Tigers dismantled the Gators 42-13 in a Homecoming game that marked one of the most lopsided losses in school history.

UF quarterback Jeff Driskel turned the ball over four times. His fumble and interception set up 10 first-half points for the Tigers on their way to a 20-0 lead at intermission. In the second half, Driskel had a sack fumble returned 21 yards for a touchdown and an interception taken back 46 yards by linebacker Darvin Ruise that made the score 42-0.

There was still a chance that one of the most turbulent weeks in Gators football history could end on a positive note and set the tone for the rest of the season.

Yes, even after the roller-coaster ride the Treon Harris case launched, and the third-and-25 LSU converted, and the touchdown pass Tevin Westbrook dropped, Florida had an opportunity to finish off a long, draining week for Gator Nation with a victory Saturday night.

But that storyline was ripped to shreds.

You probably watched it on TV, or read it on social media, or heard your neighbor throw the remote at the wall. More than 88,000 inside Ben Hill Griffin Stadium witnessed it in person.

Tie game. The Gators force LSU to punt. Florida takes over at its 42-yard line with 54 seconds left. Plenty of time to set up a game-winning field goal.

Of course they do! If you had been around Gainesville, when they come to town, you would aready know that this is a ridiculous question.

The Friday before the gameday, there's always a stynch that fills the air in Gainesville as the evening comes. As more and more Tigers get off of I-10 and start the trek down I-75 toward Gainesville, the smell just permeates your nostrils and you know you're about to play that purple and gold team from the SEC West. It's the aroma of deep fried corn meal and pork on a stick. 

Even Katy Perry knows about it, and proved it on ESPN Gameday Last week. She also proved her choice of clothing is the taste of an immature 8-year old that loves pink fur.

“L-S-peeew?” Perry trilled when it was time to pick a winner of the LSU-Auburn game, before holding up a corn dog in silence for about 10 seconds, launching it at the camera and then pulling out a plate of corn dogs and announcing, “We heard about you LSU! Heard you were hungry!”

Gators junior running back Matt Jones has created some separation in the Florida backfield. Through four games, Jones leads the team in rushing and is on pace for a 1,000-yard season. Jones is averaging 93 yards per game, seventh in the Southeastern Conference, and has two 100-yard games.

The Gators hope Jones can play in their fifth game Saturday when they host LSU. Jones missed the first two days of practice this week with swelling on his left knee, the same knee he hurt last season to cost him the final six games.

“I fully expect him to play,’’ Gators coach Will Muschamp said Wednesday.
