UF, FSU merge ... to collaborate on elaborate April Fool's joke

Published Apr. 6, 2016

The University of Florida and Florida State University joined up Friday ... to promote a funny April Fool's joke about their merger as FSUUF (or was it UFFSU)?

The schools issued fake press releases, student newspaper articles and even started a Twitter account for the new university, now based in the town of Perry.

Get to know @CityofPerryFL, the new home of @floridastate and @UF. #FSUUF #UFFSU:

Best coup: A video of campus presidents Kent Fuchs and John Thrasher extolling the virtues of ending the rivalry and just getting along.

New mascot, anyone? Possibilities include Gator-Noles and Semi-Gators.
