Help with an Urban Legend about Football and Hydration.

I played little league football in the 70’s we were discouraged from drinking water, lest we became 'Water Logged" Famously, Bear Bryant from Alabama pushed this
idea.

Then, the Florida Gators responded with ‘Gatoraide’

What happened then?

Florida started to win a lot of games, so everyone else started copying them.

I really hate to ask this. but CITE?

I guess that;s my question; I just can’t figure out the terms that I should be asking for.

Did you try wiki-ing Gatorade?
