Gator Garters and Song Girl Sweaters

Was sitting at work today, thinking about... the Florida Gator cheerleaders.  It struck me that the country knows allllll about the USC Song Girls and their fun little sweaters, but not so much about the Gator girls and their garters.  What's the story behind both, I wonder?  Which is more appealing to the college football fan?

I was hoping the EDSBS.com guys (Florida fans) might respond with some information, or just general ogling.  I'm not internet friends (how weird is that concept, btw?) with any USC bloggers, but I guess if there are any Trojans out there who care to join in, the comment forum is down below.

They are classic-we'll try to oblige you.

Blasphemous as this may sound, cheerleaders were never our bag. We loved the hospitality girls at UGA-red and white school girl skirts with knee socks and chest-enhancing sweaters. Plus they tended to be a little more...generous in stature, shall we say, than the stick-thin cheerleaders, which as a regular reader you know is important to us.

I once played a bunch of poker in Chatanooga with several male and female members of the JV cheerleading squad (and some basketball band members). There was lots of drinking, but I recall that I one $40 (in nickel ante so I was the big winner), I helped the cutest of the girls win another $20, and the male cheerleaders were incredibly vain and incredibly dumb. The evening ended with some backflips (not by me) down the hotel hallway and one male cheerleader wearing the Alberta head and being pushed around on a luggage cart. Good times. But unfortunately the garter never came up.
