Two longtime SEC East big boys. Now going two entirely different directions.

 
That was the story coming out of Jacksonville, Fla., over the weekend after the latest installment of the Florida-Georgia rivalry ended with Florida winning 27-3. 
 
It was yet another sign this season that the Gators, under first-year head coach Jim McElwain, have become relevant again on the national scene. Very relevant, in fact. Florida, whose lone loss this season came at LSU, is now one SEC win away from punching its ticket to the Georgia Dome to play for an SEC title, and a win there could very well mean a spot in the College Football Playoffs.

This puppy can carry all the essentials and then some. Get it on the ground and see it fly with you on your way to keep your tailgating spot on the quad. The wheels make the cooler easy to move before and after the tailgating events. Complete with extended handle and cupholders, there’s no real reason not to invest in this tailgating must.

If you’re really serious about tailgating with some tunes, the Cooladio Cart might be something for you to check out. It’s price pays for the quality speakers that keep  a party going long after your tailgate DJ has checked out. Throw in some beer or soda, add some football and you’ve pretty much got it made.

If a cooler just doesn’t cut it for you, a personal fridge could be another option for your tailgating needs. It keeps things cold in the summer and warm in the winter, added jealousy from friends at no extra charge.
