Tebow enjoys jorts. Everybody knows that the the gators wear jean shorts

Florida Fan Comes Clean on Jean Shorts
By Jamie Mottram | August 25, 2007


“Gators Wear Jean Shorts” allegedly began in ‘97, when a Georgia fan claims to have said it in response to a Florida heckler prior to that year’s Outdoor profanityfilterprofanityfilterprofanityfilterprofa nityfiltertail Party.

Because I’m reading Travis’ Dixieland Delight and had just watched video of a Georgia toddler saying, “Gators wear jean shorts,” this was top of mind when I tweaked Ryan Ferguson (Orange and Blue Hue, FanHouse) via email about snapping jorts photos in Gainesville this season. His response, published with permission:

“Jean shorts… always the damn jean shorts!

I’ll never admit this to anyone but you, but I used to wear them until we became, uh, infamous for them.

What’s so bad about them, anyway? Tough, functional shorts, strong belt loops and big enough pockets to fit wallet, cell phone and camera. You could spill beer on ‘em or any other noxious fluid, and you could just run ‘em through the washer and wear them again the next week. Now I wear saggy khaki shorts which stain easily and don’t last a whole season.

I miss jorts.

It could be worse. They say LSU fans smell like corn dogs. (It’s true. How is that possible?)

I will deny this if you ever bring it up.

Awesome. Gators fans are so maligned for wearing jean shorts that some of them have stopped wearing them altogether. Happened to the the rest of us back in ‘93, and it’s happening to Gator Nation in ‘07.

In any case, jorts aren’t even Florida’s only crime against fashion, just their most notable. Mandals (sandals with socks) also appear to be all the rage in The Swamp, and collarless denim shirts are cool too.

Yeah find pictures of old guys. Old guys all over the nation still wear jean shorts. Georgia has no room to talk. They wear RED dress pants to football games.

That looked alot like tebow wearing the jean shorts. I like the red pants. i do not wear them to games but its great to see folks wearing red and black. My favorite was seeing all of the pissed off aubrun fans last year during the blackout.

Wow, MAJOR fashion faux pas in pics #2 and #3. Cut-offs and pleated jorts. Youch!

Also, smelling like corndogs can't be a good thing...who wants to smell like hillbilly fair food?
