Throw The Flag:
It’s no secret that Florida Gator safety Matt Elam has nothing but pure hatred for FSU. Both Florida and Florida State heavily recruited Elam and he has been known to get into scrums with players such as Greg Reid.
After Will Muschamp and the Florida Gators defeated the Florida State Seminoles 37 – 26, Matt Elam decided to celebrate on Bobby Bowden Field which is jokingly referred to as Ron Zook field. Elam is probably the best safety in the country and is a monster on the field. He picked off EJ Manuel in the first half and played a great game. After the win, why not taunt the FSU faithful with some snow angeling? It’s not like the ACC referees gave the Gators any help.

The Florida State Seminoles are hosting the Florida Gators at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahasse, Florida for the Battle for the Governors’ Cup.

With pressure from the Gator defensive line...
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- No. 5 Florida didn't wait to give coach Will Muschamp a contract extension.
The Gators (11-1) gave him one before the season.

Foley says in a statement...
Florida will get the SEC's Sugar Bowl bid even though Alabama will be the number two team in the SEC.
The Gators will likely be ranked third in the BCS after the SEC Championship Game. Florida will have one loss and the loser of the SECCG will have two losses. The fact that the second loss for Alabama will come in the championship game while Florida watches from its swampy...
GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Will Muschamps first season as Floridas head coach in 2011 didnt go as well as he hoped on the field, but UFs administration was confident enough in the direction of the program to extend Muschamps contract in August, it was revealed Tuesday.

A year after calling his team soft following an embarrassing home loss to Florida State, Florida coach Will Muschamp watched many of those same players rip the Seminoles 37-26 on Saturday.

The Gators knew it was coming, Marcus Roberson said. Though the orange and blue came out swinging in Tallahassee Saturday afternoon, clinching the lead first, the Gators knew the garnet and gold would strike back — it was just a matter of when. The Noles’ time to rise arrived in the second half of the rivalry game, but so did Roberson’s huge plays, eventually carrying Florida...

Cornerback Marcus Roberson added a 50-yard punt return and an interception in the win.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – The statistics weren’t in Florida’s favor. Florida State came into Saturday with the nation’s top rush defense, allowing 70.6 yards per game and 2.3 yards per carry. The Gators ran for 244 yards at Doak Campbell Stadium, averaging 5.2 yards per carry. It didn’t surprise head coach Will Muschamp as much as the stats suggested. Florida knew it could run the ball.
If you ever needed proof that Nick Saban only cares about “fairness” when it benefits him or his team, this is it.
When asked about how he feels about the loser of Saturday’s SEC Championship dropping below the Florida Gators and losing a spot in the Sugar Bowl, Saban says that it isn’t fair. And to top it off, he goes as far as to say that since Florida didn’t win the...
First Down. The Florida Gators are ranked 5th in both the AP and Coaches Top 25 polls and it just doesn't seem right (#4 in BCS). They've beaten three teams currently ranked in the Top 10 (LSU, Texas A&M and South Carolina). For comparison, Notre Dame has beaten just three teams currently ranked in the entire Top 25. Florida's only loss came to 11-1 Georgia in a game...
