I graduated from the University of Florida in Gainesville in 1982 and, to be honest, I was glad to be done. I never took much to life in a college town and I wasn’t one of those crazy Florida Gators.
Heck, the football team was pretty bad back then and it wasn’t the great source of pride it is now.
Over the last X-number of years—and you can do the math if you care to—I’ve come to appreciate my collegiate heritage a great deal more and become a pretty big fan of those Florida Gator football teams.
KEVIN McCARTHY podcast excerpt: “The reason that the St. John’s River flows north instead of south, as you know, is that Georgia sucks. I wrote a book about the St. John’s River and included that in the front but the publisher took it out.”
My son’s even got his heart set on attending UF.
So how could I pass up the opportunity to give Kevin McCarthy this forum to promote his new book, Historic Photos of Florida Football?
McCarthy has written 43 books and spent 33 years as a teacher of linguistics and writing at the school.
