    It sure is good to see these game threads you do again; even if it is just an appetizer to hold us over 3 months till our entrée gets here :)

    Thanks for the complement. It's appreciated. :)

    They do take more than 5 minutes.

    The info I saw on GatorZone about this mentioned that if you get your tickets ahead of time, you will avoid what may be long lines at the gates.

    I saw that too when I was planning on ordering, either way there is going to be a line. I think will just get mine at the gate. Does the spring games ever sell out?

    I have been to many over the years and I don't recall ever seeing one sold out. Of course, depending on things, some years they are very well attended and some years not so much. I'm going to guess on the good years, such as when Timmy was here, we had about 4o,oo0-50,000 range and some years maybe the low side was about 20,000. Not sure how the 4-8 season will affect Saturday. Depends on expectations and optimism and curious about some of the newer players etc I guess.

    We have bought them at the gate. Never more than one or two ahead. Last year Florida Farm Bureau was giving out free tickets at their booth at the Fan Fest.

    It doesn't ever sellout...As previously stated, the biggest crowds were during Timmy's years in the Swamp. We go every year. The kids enjoy it because they know we can get up and walk around without making me grumpy...:D

    Another plus is you can get really close to the field.

    Go to the UF site, GatorZone.com and they list it on GatorVision. Now, I'm not 12 so I don't know what that is.

    It is $3.99 on GatorVision. I am not sure if that is in addition to a annual/monthly sub or not. I will let folks know as I am a subscriber and not sure if I will need to pay the extra.
