Every time Florida wins, the team stays out on the field to sing the alma mater with the band. On Wednesday night, the Gators suffered a shocking loss to Louisville in the Sugar Bowl. The players and coaches were understandably disappointed after losing a BCS game that almost everyone assumed they would win, but junior linebacker Darrin Kitchens was in no mood to sulk.
As you can see from the photo above that Whitney Holtzman passed along, Kitchens remained on the field after the loss to sing the alma mater with the school band. He was the only player who remained. Dr. Saturday pointed out that Kitchens did not play a snap in the game.
While it was tough not to root for the Cardinals after hearing some of the things that analysts and experts were saying about them, you have to admire the gesture from Kitchens. After all, the Florida fans who made the trip to New Orleans had to endure the loss as well.
