 As college football nicknames go, the moniker attached to new Gators defensive coordinatorGeoff Collins is catchy.

They referred to him at Mississippi State as “The Minister of Mayhem.”

Staying in a conference with a rich history of memorable nicknames – who can forget The BearCadillacJohnny FootballHoney Badger and The Freak – Collins will have an opportunity to expand his brand with what projects as a very talented Florida defense next season.

The University of Florida football team has accepted an invitation to play American representative East Carolina in the Birmingham Bowl on Jan. 3, 2015, at historic Legion Field in Birmingham, Ala. The game will be broadcast on ESPN at 12 p.m. ET.

“We are excited to be headed to Birmingham for the Birmingham Bowl,” said athletics director Jeremy Foley. “Our players, coaches and staff are looking forward to traveling to the home of the conference office and representing the University of Florida.”

The locker room door would swing open, another Gators player or coach would appear, grab a boxed dinner on a table near the exit, and then begin the long march across the field at Vanderbilt Stadium toward their buses.

As offensive coordinator Kurt Roper started his walk, he looked over at the group of Florida beat reporters shivering in the cool Tennessee night.

Roper then tossed a winning quote their way.

"Hey, we completed a forward pass,'' Roper quipped.

A week after passing only six times and running 60 in a blast-from-the-past upset over Georgia, the Gators altered their approach in a 34-10 victory against the Commodores.

 It's a phrase his dad taught him a long time ago. And a phrase Will Muschamp has called on more than once the past two weeks.

"Ten percent of life is what happens to you, 90 percent is how you handle it."

The eyes of a national television audience on CBS, of a frustrated Florida fan base, and of a crowded EverBank Field on Saturday watched to see how Muschamp and the Gators would handle that 90-percent part.

The 10 percent happened Oct. 18 at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on Homecoming, a 29-point loss to Missouri. In the 14 days since a lot of noise echoed around Gator Nation.

Muschamp has prepared for a lot of big games during his coaching career, including a pair of national championship games, one when he was defensive coordinator at LSU and another as Texas' defensive coordinator.

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.
