It's Great To Be A Florida Gator...
In the wake of Florida's sweep of the football and basketball national championships, we offer this stat. In the last 2 years, going back to the start of the 2005 college football season, exactly two teams have beaten the Gators in Gainesville. That's it. Two home losses in the last two years combined. The football team has gone undefeated in The Swamp over that time. Basketball team went undefeated this year. You have to go back to 2/22/06 to find a home loss for them to Tennessee. South Carolina (2/4/06) was the other one.
Last football team to win in Gainesville? LSU on 10/9/04
Last non-SEC team to win in Gainesville? Louisville hoop on 12/11/04
To put it another way, say your a sophomore at UF in the class of '09. In your time on campus you've seen your football and basketball teams combine for a 51-2 home record and 3 national titles. Not too shabby.
