    Personally, I get rather sick of seeing a banner on GATOR COUNTRY that says,
    "The University of Alabama, Where Legends Are Made."
    WHO made the decision to do this?!!

    Personalized ads are based off your browser history. Maybe you should stop being obsessed with Alabama and you will see less?

    In my head--- UF
    Gator country needs to make money obviously and AI serves up ads based on many factors including cookies on your pc/phone/laptop, browser history and geo fencing.

    it’s just a way of life now online. I do get a laugh out of ads for the university of Miami when I see them on various places.

    GC is a great thing for gator fans like me so thankful we have it. Even when we have band threads

    For starters one thing that I'm NOT obsessed with.. is with Alabama.
    Secondly I do not visit any Alabama sights and I would not care to.

    SEC network also devoted three hours of time to their pro day. What the? I probably missed it, but are other schools getting similar coverage?
