Tough Loss For The Gators But Love Is All Around On Twitter

The Florida Gators lost to the UConn Huskies for the second time this season in the NCAA Final Four on Saturday night in Dallas, TX. The latter defeat ended a 30-game win streak, the quest for an NCAA title, and four seniors’ stellar careers.

But all was not lost for the Gator Basketball team. As the song says, “In all kinds of weather, we’ll all stick together, for F-L-O-R-I-D-A.” Famous alumni, athletes, and even some non-UF affiliated celebrities took to social media in support of the team’s efforts – especially those of Scottie Wilbekin, Patric Young, Will Yeguete, and Casey Prather.

Even future MLB Hall of Famer Chipper Jones got in on the Gator Love …

… and so did this D-List celebrity, UF fan and hack sports writer …

The Florida Basketball team responded in kind to the fans that supported them on their magical run this year as well.

Amidst all the disappointment from yesterday’s loss came this Tweet that made my night … day … week … month … year … decade … life. This post reminds us all that it’s ALWAYS greater to be a GATOR.
