Florida is a big state.

Yeah, but so is Michigan, and I don't see the University of Michigan being open to letting WMU (Western Michigan)into to the Big Ten anytime soon, regardless of what WMU's credentials might be; the same goes for Iowa and Iowa State. The reason why UF doesn't want another team in Florida is the same reason why TAMU moved to the SEC: they don't want to have share the spotlight with another in-state team, period.

Iowa is a small population state. 3 million.
Michigan has 10 million people.

Florida is a big state. Almost 20 million big. Miami, Gainesville, and Tallahassee are not next to each other.

Nonetheless, the state leaders at the time saw fit to proclaim it as the "University of Florida". Not the University of Gainesville, not the University of Northern Florida.
