When the thought to create a Web site specifically about the Florida Gators first popped into my head, I treated it like any other idea that I have had in my life – I wrote it down and planned to revisit it at a later date.
Unlike previous instances when I had simply written the idea down, my pen did not stop at the concept alone this time. Instead, I began writing potential titles. After immediately throwing out some of the more trite words and expressions used by and about the Gators, I realized there was only one phrase that truly portrayed the passion of Gator Nation, the dedication of our student-athletes and the fear playing against the Gators instilled in our opponents. Best of all, it was something I had seen dozens of times in my UF career and is easily my favorite part of The Swamp.
If the title of this Web site seemed familiar to you at first, that is because it should be. It is hanging over the tunnel to Florida Field at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, seen by the entire football team every time it storms the field and stands as a reminder to the players that The Swamp is land worth fighting for, defending and dominating opponents on.
