It’s almost time yet again for the world’s largest outdoor cocktail party. And Florida is hyped.
It’s only Jim McElwain’s second time experiencing the rivalry game against Georgia, but it’s clear from his comments in the hype video the Gators released that he understands the magnitude of the game. Check out the video below:
It doesn't matter where you're from or where you grew up.

Maybe the universities don’t appreciate the blatant association with rowdy drunkeness that comes with the namesake of the rivalry game for more than half a century, but they attempted to institute a new name for the matchup this year — to nobody’s liking.
If you so choose, it can also be referred to the “River City Showdown.” Paul Finebaum seemed a little too eager to ditch the “World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party” moniker, though.
What should we call the rivalry game being played in Jacksonville this weekend? #CFB
