GRIND

What does GRIND stand for and where can I get one of the Nike orange "GRIND" bracelets all of players and coaches are wearing?

I think it means blue-collar worker. You have to "grind-it-out" so to speak.

One player or coach stated what it stood for, but here's a quote:
Florida players are wearing orange wrist bands with a blue Gator logo insignia during practices.

“It means grind,” Gillislee said. “Go on the field, give it all that you've got.”

Asked if Florida players should be doing that anyway, Gillislee responded, “It's just a reminder.”

All true, but it's an acronym as well. James Bates recited what it stood for on Muschamp's show Sunday.

That's where I heard it! I knew I wasn't losing my mind.

You're exactly right and one of the reports said what it mean during the game, I just forgot. I'm guessing the wristbands are not for sale.

He wants it for his trips to Mons Venus so he can sport that and be a man of few words.

Some of you are going straight to hell for picking on Charlie. That bracelet serves an important role in the big guy's life.

I'd bet the farm Charles is type 2. Type I diabetics are often thin.

You wanted one before you even knew what it stood for? Impressive.

I think it has something to do with the track team but not sure the significance of the football guys wearing it.
