Florida takes a page out of the Georgia Tech marketing book.

Four hot dogs, four Cokes and four tickets – it’s not just for Yellow Jackets anymore!

    The only thing they left out were the cupcakes, amirite?

  2. Ketchup on a hotdog…typical.

    If they throw in a parking pass we should trade them to “The American” for USF.

    Note the very fine print…these tickets are in the upper “Sunshine Seats” in the North end zone. Such a deal! You can’t even see Boom’s pleasant facial expressions from there.

    Holy Toledo! How ’bout them Dawgs?!

    Well considering that they almost lost every home game against inferior competition last year….

    I mean going into the final 2 minutes of the 4th tied with a cupcake is bad….real bad.

  7. Dumb Idea

    These are the dumbest marketing campaigns. The point of a “promotion” is to incite people to take action (i.e. buy) the product/business/service that you’re trying to sell. This idea doesn’t even do that.

    First, the people who have both the means and desire to attend a college football game in-person, aren’t on the fence waiting for a free hotdog to be offered to them before they buy a ticket.

    Second, the people without the means to eat still aren’t going to be able to get the “free” food, because they can’t afford to get in a game either.

    By all means, give out free hotdogs, cokes, hugs, etc…but don’t waste money on advertising the fact that you’re giving out free hot dogs. No one cares.

      It just reeks of desperation. Florida may be a lot of things, but I doubt desperate for cash is one of them.

      McGarity would never allow this to happen. Look how much they’re taking out of their reserve fund by giving out free tubular incased meat on a shitty bun.

      Thirdly: never-ending taunt material for one’s rivals.

    If a Gator spills ketchup on his jorts in 37-F does anyone see it?

  9. Go Dawgs!

    This is hilarious, but could someday come home to roost considering that UGA is still begging people to buy tickets to the North Texas game every day on Facebook.

    Throw in a slightly used pair of jorts and I’m there. I’ll start working on the mullet ASAP.

    Even the mighty sec can’t fend off economic reality. The vast majority of the middle class is squeeking by. UGA should be worried. We were season ticket holders and tailgate mainstays on East Cloverhurst for over a decade. Can’t park there anymore thanks to Adams – who spent most of his tenure making gameday visits difficult. Throw in a schedule where one doesn’t know the kick-off time until the week before. Its just easier to watch from our favorite bar. But it was great while it lasted.

    “Soda”….. Damn Yankees…

      +1 I will never forget that on one of my first trips to Chicago I was at a cocktail party in a hotel and the minimum wage bartender assigned to the ballroom added Coke when I requested a scotch and soda (not Macallan of course….one adds nothing to that fine liquid beyond ice).

  13. Bulldog Joe

    Throw in some boogers and they’ll sell the place out.

  14. Darrron Rovelll

    Hey now — let’s lay off the Coca-Cola references with the Gators. Let them put soda all over the promo because that stadium does not sell a single drop of the world’s most refreshing beverage.

    It is Pepsi all the way …

    Guys, I wouldn’t put this past McGarity doing the same thing
