    It's great to hear our fans did their part. From the article, it did not go unnoticed with the squad and coaches.

    I won't touch the above comment with a 10-foot pole...

    Great article AKA. Hopefully the traveling show continues in Dec, where we've had tepid fan support on the road at best. Helps that this team is getting more exciting to watch.

    Really nice to see the coaching staff and players reciprocate the Gator love

    The quotes came from posts, so I’m sure they don’t mind.... @diamondted13 and @gatorbogey, respectively.

    Great article....super quotes! :)

    That was a fun event. Great that the team played well, treated us to the wins and the title! Way to cap off a fun filled weekend!

    Encourage others to attend this one the next time we get an invite.

    These holiday tournaments are pretty good. Need some additional fans, of course! Back in Florida- the panhandle - next year.

    Great to get acknowledged by the coaches and players. They gave us a lot to cheer about.

    I will add: I was in the gator block for Xavier and was focused on cheering. Having that mindset, I found I didn’t fret about a dwindling lead - just cheered louder!

    I think if I was home, i’d Dwell more on the bad, etc. get nervous. Chew my nails down, etc. so I loved being able to burn that nervous energy and put it into noisy voice power.

    Thanks, at least there's only a 50/50 chance of guessing who's who...

    Enjoyed reading the article. As someone that watched it on TV the fans showed up big in all the games so the article rang true to me.

    You're just upset because nobody ever asked you if you had a rod your hand!;)
