Why UF is better than Florida State

edited October 2009 in Florida State University
As a Florida high school senior during this difficult time of applications and personal statements, you may saying to yourself, "Which of these two fine in-state institutions do I want to attend?" The answer is clear: The University of Florida.

1) Our majors matter.

Besides making Gatorade, UF is known for its engineering programs, its state-of-the-art McKnight Brain Institute, and having one of the best med schools in the southeast. FSU on the other hand, is known for it's theater school. That's right, Hamlet and all that.

2) Our football team doesn't suck.

FSU had storied days in the 90s, but you were all seven at the time and didn't care. Now, when it matters, Florida State is known for losing at home, and Coach Bobby is a bit past his glorious days. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that the Seminoles drink Powerade, which is vastly inferior.

UF is where it's at. With Tim Tebow and a squad of highly talented players, #1 Florida is championship material, which means you might just get to have the experience of helping burn a couch in the streets of Gainesville while celebrating our fourth National Championship.

3) The Gator Nation is everywhere.

Those obnoxious commercials during halftime on ESPN speak the truth: The Gator Nation IS everywhere. Graduating from a fine institution like UF means that you will be a proud Gator Alum. Most major U.S. cities have a Gator Club to tailgate together, so you'll never feel alone no matter where you move, even if it's Tallahassee.

    He/she posted a similar remark on the UF board - except opposite.

    I suggest ignoring it.

    this is really sad...
    I hope this is just some overcrazed UF student.
    I really hope the university wasn't up to this, cause THAT would be sad.

    I must say, his argument for why Florida State is better than Florida is much more convincing.
  • parent2nolesparent2noles Posts: 7,953Registered User Senior Member
    I think the reason is that he/she gets $$ for every hit on his webblog.

    Zeekz is right. But, that does mean one more national championship.
    Did anyone say South Florida?

    Just kidding...

    ^The best response I've seen so far. Even us parents have a bit of passion to communicate once in a while.

    My D does not understand why anyone wants to go to UF. Even after 2 campus visits, and a school visit yesterday she remains unimpressed with Florida.

    Not even going to bother applying.

    That's right! UF is hands down the better research institution because of Gatorade and all the other inventions, research and incubated company spin-offs. Last time I checked UF was ranked in the top 20 nationally in total research and development. Where is FSU ranked?

    Btw, UF already started breaking ground on a new $61M research facility at Lake Nona. Do you know if FSU is doing anything something similar at Lake Nona?? ;)
