Florida students already lined up outside the O’Connell Center

That’s Gate 3 outside the O’Connell Center in Gainesville, where students started lining up for tonight’s game at 8 a.m. Because nothing can’t happen in life now without a Twitter hashtag, they’re updating their experience via #OccupyGate3. Apparently Florida AD Jeremy Foley just brought everyone free Subway sandwiches.

    Where were these “fans” when the Gators were struggling to get 4,000 to come to games earlier this season?

    Looks like it’s already jorts weather there!

    Hopefully Subway is as close to home cookin as they get today. But I’ll go ahead and assume we get Shows, Cahill & TV Teddy on the whistle…

    I hope the Cats come prepared to handle the most hostile crowd they have faced. Would love to see them put a beating on the Gators.

    Only the Florida Marlins are impressed with that line.

    Hah, even when we’re relatively awful, we still stir the pot for the conference.

    You think they will have tickets at the gate like normal? Not if the Cat fans in FL have anything to say about it! Go Cats!

    That’s a pretty weak #OccupyGate3 movement

    The Florida AD bought everyone free sandwiches? Who would buy something that is free?

    I wonder how many of those FL students are wearing UK gear. If not while in line, surely some will be once they get in the arena. #BBNOccupyGate3 – someone please start this.

    I guess Free Subway is one way to get the students to go to a basketball game.

    They’re lining up because that’s how they give out their student tickets (or at least how they once did). Basically you show up on gameday and the first x amount of students it takes to fill the student section get tickets. I’m not proud of how I know this information, but when you move down here single sometimes you end up marrying a UF grad. *hangs head* She’s perfect otherwise though, so that’s something, right?

    21, as long as you can get her to scream “Cats! Cats! Cats!” at the appropriate time, all is forgiven! 🙂
