Congratulations to our team and coaches for a successful football season and appearance in the BCS National Championship Game. It has been an exciting year, and we are anticipating a great game tonight.
Once again, faculty, staff and students are invited to bring a guest and gather at the O'Connell Center to watch the game. Last year's event for the basketball championship at the O'Connell Center was a tremendous success, and our students are looking forward to a fun evening there tonight - pretzels and cheerleaders included! There will be events at other venues all over town tonight, as well as Gator fans gather to cheer on our team.
At the time of our spectacular wins in April, Gator fans demonstrated that we are champions both on and off the field. The celebrations following the basketball championship game were exuberant yet safe. It is our hope that all UF students who celebrate after tonight's game will repeat last year's experience and enjoy themselves in a responsible way. This is yet another chance to show what it means to be a member of the Gator Nation!
Have fun, and Go Gators!

Bernie Machen,


University of Florida
