Florida coach Jim McElwain pens letter to students

The Florida Gators football team is set to begin a new era in just over a week, as former Colorado State head coach Jim McElwain takes over for Will Muschamp in “The Swamp.”

As McElwain prepares to bring the Gators back to glory, he is doing everything in his power to make sure he has the students at the University of Florida firmly in his corner when the 2015 season begins.

In order to give his team every advantage possible, McElwain sent out a letter to Florida students urging them to come out and support the football team.

By filling up “The Swamp,” McElwain believes he can help his Gators earn one of the best homefield advantages in all of college football.

You can read the letter below.

The Gators kick off their 2015 campaign on Sept. 5 against New Mexico State.
