I love you, New College. As reported by the Herald-Tribune:

This was a game:
• Where New College of Florida President Donal O’Shea publicly handed Larry Thompson a towel after New College pulled ahead of Ringling in the second half as the crowd laughed. (The two had sent individual emails to their own staff promising humiliation by wetness to the other.)
• Where the players looked a little irritated because half the crowd was rapping the “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” theme song as the second half began.
• Where a student on the sideline read Chaucer on her Kindle as she watched boys tackle each other to a Black Eyed Peas and Florence and the Machine soundtrack.
• Where the cheering section wore a mix of head scarves and fedoras, board shorts and face paint — and had a tendency to dance impromptu.
