The rivalry with LSU has become very hot the last few years.
The winner of this game has gone on to win the past three national champions.
Florida holds the series record with a 29-23-3 advantage.
Over the past decade, it's been a strange rivalry, with the road teams winning in a four year span from 2001-2004.
During these years, the better team lost every time, culminating in 2003 when unranked and Ron Zook-coached Florida held No. 2 LSU to a touchdown in a 19-7 victory.
Beginning in 2005 though, the road team has lost each battle, and each one has been absolutely insane, meeting all hype and expectations.
I can't really say that I hate their program, or their coach, or their players (minus Ricky Jean-Francois), but I do hate their fans and the entire student body.
Because I grew up a Gator, I have been to many road games. But this is one of those games that I was never allowed to go to.
As a college junior I finally made the trip to Baton Rouge. We had just suffered our first home defeat in the Urban Meyer era and were hungry to beat up on No. 1 ranked LSU on their home turf.
All the fraternities had planned road trips, so there was sure to be no shortage of Gator fans in town.
However, I will always remember the fans from LSU as the least hospitable, arrogant, rude, and downright hated group of people I know, outside of registered democrats. (No one can match that group.)
I tried being friendly at Tiger tailgates, talking up the game and all. LSU students were only interested in informing me that I had wasted my time and money by even showing up. Thanks guys.
My date and I were taunted by a group of eight-year olds who even went as far as calling her a bitch. In front of their parents! Who by the way, did nothing about it.
The walk to the stadium was even worse. Unfortunately, I was only a little buzzed, so I couldn't forget what had happened.
A friend of mine was arrested for standing up during the game. Seriously, it's 100 percent true.
As the seconds ticked out, and older couple dumped their bourbon on me and then threw their cups. When I say older, I'm talking at least 60. I could not believe it.
This is why LSU is one of the most hated fan bases in all of America. They are obnoxious and crazy, and show only hostility to opposing teams and fans.
I suppose I can't complain too much though, seeing as how my Gators are supposedly on the same hate level.
The only good thing I can say is that when they play the Garth Brooks song before the game and everyone yells "Baton Rouge" together...that's pretty cool.
Screw you, LSU. And get ready for your first home loss of 2009!
