Schools like the university of Florida have the Gator Ticket Office and will write about Gator football. Since the team is the Florida Gators, should they be using the word Gators in those titles?

Generally, schools and teams pick a mascot (singular) and the teams  - or groups of students - become known as the plural of that mascot.  The use you describe is very typical.  I know I have read an article about this question before, but I can't find it right now.
