  • I think I am beginning to understand the American fuss with football. There's an almost reverent energy in this gigantic cathedral to the iconic national sport. I look forward to returning for a game 
  • For those who do not is of Gainesville (and who is also!), it's worth the experience of watching a game the Gators Ben Hill Griffin Stadium, the home of the team. Fanatical fans vibrates the whole time! And the stadium itself, which belongs to the University, is very well equipped and well maintained.

  • Great time at at the UF/SC game! Go Gators! They certainly pack them in. The seating was tight! I think they are more concerned with getting the most people in the stadium.

  • Lifes better in this stadium. All my cares are immediately eleviated upon entering. Go Gators
  • The specialness is gone. Piped in music, no more chants during the game, expensive concessions, invassive searches to get in, expensive tickets, no public Wi-Fi, no leaving and coming back during half time and horrible cramped benches. Football is fun just less fun than 20 years ago.
  • It's pretty cool and it's normally open even when there's nothing going on so students can work out and stuff.
  • This is the best place on Earth! There's nothing like The Swamp. Watching the stadium erupt after the Gators score is the best feeling in the world. It's great to be a Florida Gator!!!
  • I've had some of the best times of my football life at the swamp. However I have also had a few of my most disappointing and heartbreaking times. The latter made for a long ride home to Jacksonville. Overall there were many more happy times and rides home. Go GATORS
