Saturday in Gainesville, Florida means one thing: game day

Even factoring in several mitigating factors — it's 4-4 Missouri, the game is at noon, Halloween was this week and people will be celebrating on Friday and Saturday, Florida just lost a big game in a heartbreaking way, some Gators fans have spent plenty to see the Gators over the first two months of this season already, Florida's economy still isn't exactly strong — that's sad. And it's especially sad for students.

Over the past 33 years the Wild Game Feast has become not only the largest annual fundraising event for the Gainesville area Rotary Clubs, but also one of the most highly anticipated and well attended such event in the entire Gainesville area community. During that time the Rotary Clubs of Gainesville Foundation has raised over $2.25 million for worthy local charitable organizations. The event began in 1985 when a group of Alachua County Rotarians got together to raise money for the Scholarship house – to provide support for UF students in need of room and board assistance. The pursuant fundraiser was held at a site east of Gainesville known today as the Rotary Conservation Area at Hatchet Creek. With its vast open layout and rugged natural outdoor beauty, the site has proven to be an elegant venue for Rotarians, friends and other community members to enjoy superb, unique food and casual, genuine fellowship as we support wonderful local charities.

When you come to Florida, you're coming to one of the greatest universities in the world, one that will allow you to get a great education as long as you put in as much as you can. But you're coming to one of the greatest communities in America, too, a city and a county and a region that comes together on six or seven or eight Saturdays a fall to celebrate one thing fully. You are short-changing yourself as a UF student if you are not going to as many games as you can, because you're not learning about and experiencing one of the most sacred things your school offers.

You students who buy season tickets to sell them for a profit probably had that work out this year: If you flipped your LSU and South Carolina tickets for $60 each, which is conservative, you would have come out significantly ahead, and been able to essentially go to the rest of the year's games for free. What are you doing or getting with that money that is more valuable than being at two of the most exhilarating home games in Florida's recent history?

I have realized in the last year that I missed a lot in the last five. I only saw Florida torch Tennessee during Tim Tebow's Heisman campaign in 2007; I didn't see a single game during the 2008 championship season, though I definitely could have scalped tickets and gotten in. (I saw Percy Harvin play live all of once. ) I didn't see Florida escape Arkansas in 2009, and the Florida State game I went to felt anticlimactic after only seeing Charleston Southern and Tennessee prior to that. (I'm still mad about not seeing Florida beat Troy in the rain, too.)

This year, I've made up for it as best as I can: I went to Texas A&M, and considered driving to both Knoxville and Nashville, and I've been in The Swamp from kickoff to 0:00 in the fourth quarter every Saturday. I went to Jacksonville for the Florida-Georgia game for the first time; I'll be in Tallahassee to see Florida play the Gators' biggest game against FSU in about a decade. I'll be there in Atlanta if Florida lucks out at the Get-Rolled-By-Alabama Roulette table; I'll be at whatever bowl game Florida plays.
