About Florida Tickets on TiqIQ
The Florida Gators have one of the most passionate and loyal fan bases in the SEC and the country. Until the late 80’s, the basketball program didn’t experience much success. The Gators didn’t make an NCAA appearance until 1987. Since then, they’ve made the NCAA tournament 20 of the next 27 seasons and every season from 2000 to 2014. The majority of Florida’s success came under former head coach Billy Donovan, who just left Florida for the NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder in April 2015. Donovan led the Gators to two consecutive NCAA championships in 2006 and 2007, the first NCAA team to accomplish this feat since the 1991-1992 Duke Blue Devils and the first team to ever repeat as national champions with the same starting line-up. Additionally, Florida went to two other Final Fours under Donovan (2000 and 2014) and the Gators went to four consecutive Elite Eights from 2011 to 2014. The Gators will begin the 2015 basketball season under Michael White, the previous coach of Louisiana Tech. The Gators’ football program is one of the most successful football programs in the modern era of college football. Since the 80s, Florida is one of nine teams to win two or more championships with three championships since 1996 (1996, 2006 and 2008). The last two championships came under head coach Urban Meyer. The Gators began playing football back in 1906 and have accumulated a 691-400-40 (.629) record since then including a 21-20 record in postseason bowl games. The Gators also have eight conference titles, three Heisman trophy winners and 31 Consensus All-Americans. Like the basketball program, Florida will have a new football coach in the 2015 season. Jim McElwain was hired in December of 2014 to take over the Gator program after previously serving as the head coach of Colorado State. The Florida Gators are one of three NCAA Division-I programs to have won a BCS National Championship in football and NCAA Division-I National Championships in basketball in the same school year. This accomplishment occurred in the 2006-2007 school year as the football team defeated the Ohio State Buckeyes in the title game to complete a 13-1 season while the basketball program won their second consecutive basketball championship in 2007 with a win over the Ohio State Buckeyes. Florida was the first school in NCAA history to hold both football and basketball national championships in the same season with Kansas and Louisville accomplishing this feat since then.
