Preemptive? Maybe. Confident. Definitely!!
“Our Florida Alma Mater, Thy victorious name we praise.
All thy loyal sons and daughters, A glorious song shall raise.
Where palm and pine are blowing, where southern seas are flowing
Shine forth thy noble gothic walls, thy lovely vineclad halls.
‘Neath the Orange and Blue victorious, our love shall never fail.
There’s no other name so glorious.
All hail, Florida, hail!”
