Gatorade Inventor Dies

University of Florida professor Robert Cade, the lead inventor of Gatorade back in 1965, died Nov. 27 at the age of 80 of kidney failure. According to legend, the inspiration for Gatorade came from a question from former Florida Gators coach Dwayne Douglas, who asked, “Doctor, why don’t football players wee-wee after a game?”
