    My mom and I visited the stadium while in Gainesville last month. We loved that it is accessible during the day. There were students stopping in and showing others. An impressive facility!  more »

    The stadium is must see when visiting UF. So much history in this stadium and it was pleasure to see some of the up and coming stars, as well as some of the past stars.  more »

    Me & Sarah-Sarah getting the reps in! Nothing like stadium steps to spice up a workout. All the way to the top & back down is one rep. E2MOM. Not nearly as much fun as it sounds.

    Not fun in the rain but The Swamp is nice... second to Doak Campbell Stadium in Florida ;)

    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
