A Seminole Affair:

Why You Should Fall In Love With Florida State University Football Too!

By:  Sherry Goldberg

 

F-L-O-R-I-D-A S-T-A-T-E, what what, FLORIDA STATE, FLORIDA STATE, FLORIDA STATE WOOOOO. This the chant sung by every single Florida State University football fan after we score in a football game. FSU football’s dynasty has spanned more than three decades and has produced some of the best pro football players such as Chris Weinke, Terrell Buckley,Warrick Dunn,Derrick Brooks, and Deion Sanders just to name a few. My love affair began with FSU football in the fall of 2006 when I received my acceptance letter to attend college there commencing in the summer of 2007. It was love at first site when I stepped foot onto FSU’s campus and especially when I got my first glance at Doak Campbell Stadium. Doak Campbell Stadium is one of the most magical places to be inside of, holding 83,000 screaming fans at a time, and once you’re in it you never want to leave.

 

Rooting for FSU football is like breathing for me; I do it every day without thinking about it and need it in my life to stay alive. Over the course of my four years spent at FSU, we did not have great seasons, but I attended every single football game and even sat front row on the 30 yard line for a few of them. See being a Seminole fan is not just about winning games and boasting about how good our program is. Being a Seminole fan is about the dedication you have to cheer on your team through hard times and defeat. It is standing in 95 degree heat for a noon kickoff on a September afternoon and staying at the game while the pouring rain soaks you late into the four quarter when you know your team has no chance of winning the game.

 

I will always bleed garnet and gold because I know that being a True Seminole is more than saying that you love FSU football, but it is actually a way of life. As fall began and another football season kicked off about a month ago, Seminole football looked into the future. Another year with the top recruiting class in the nation and yet another year to prove the critics and naysayers wrong that FSU’s dynasty has been left in the past. After four games of play, FSU football still remains undefeated and ranked number four in the country. We have proved that our team is back in full effect and will be contenders for the BCS National Championship to be played in January of 2013 in Miami, Florida. Gone are the days of the legendary coach Bobby Bowden era, but the Jimbo Fisher one looks like it will be a force to be reckoned with. If the Noles are not on your list of top 10 teams to watch this college football season, then you must not be a true college football fan. It does not matter whether your teams are the Gators, Hurricanes, Ducks, Tigers, or Elephants, the Noles are a powerful and determined team this year that will continue to show their presence on and off the field as the year continues to unfold.  The future has endless possibilities for this Florida State University football team and it truly is our year to shine.
