Words by Carson Rich The rebuild of the Jacksonville Jaguars continues. North Florida’s home team showed much improvement this year, but fell short at the very end, leaving fans questioning where it all went wrong.

Sportsmanship and Sore Losers

Mallorie Aldrich   Sportsmanship is a life lesson many people are taught at a young age and learn to understand the meaning as they grow up and mature.

The Chaotic Art of Tailgating: Florida vs. Georgia

Words by Carson Rich The unhinged nature of tailgating before a sporting event is chaotic enough, but for Jacksonville, the month of October brings this event to the next level. The annual meeting of the Florida Gators and the Georgia Bulldogs is a timeless Southern tradition with a whole year of bragging rights on the line. The game itself is always a great time, but for fans and locals, it’s the atmosphere surrounding it that unleashes the mayhem.    The “Florida Georgia game” as most like to call it, is historically one of college football’s most heated rivalries, bringing about …
