New, 64 comments

Florida Gators fans can root for either team in this Super Bowl. But there's one clear choice.

Hey, y'all heard of this Super Bowl thing?

Super Bowl XLVIII begins on Fox at 6:30 p.m., and you'll be glued to it. But if you inexplicably want to watch it along with your fellow Florida fans: Here you go.

The really quick rooting guide for Gators: The Seahawks trading for Percy Harvin and making him a fixture of their offense despite his constant injuries is reason enough to root for Seattle, but defensive coordinator Dan Quinn helped build the foundation for this Florida defense in 2011 and 2012, and Florida's defense at is peak should operate a lot like this Seahawks defense.

Meanwhile, though the Broncos do have Andre Caldwell and Lerentee McCray on the roster and injured reserve, they picked Peyton Manning over Tim Tebow, which makes a lot of sense from a football perspective and absolutely no sense from our highly irrational perspective.

Go 'Hawks.
