I’ve have something VERY important to tell you…
You got to fight, fight, fight for FSU!
You got to scalp ’em Seminoles!
You got to win, win, win, win this game and
Roll on down to make those goals!
For FSU is on the warpath now,
and at the battle’s end she’s great.
So fight, fight, fight for victory,
the Seminoles of Florida State!
FLORIDA STATE!! FLORIDA STATE!! FLORIDA STATE!!
Today is a BIG day for Florida State football.
For the first time in 8 years — College Gameday is in Tally.
I was lucky – I attended FSU during the Bobby Bowden glory years. And let me tell you, those years were AMAZING. The games, the rivalries, the celebration, the spirit. I didn’t pick FSU for the football program – but it definitely helped!
I graduated with my Masters in 2001 and we left Tallahassee for good in 2004 (as did my little brother). For a while, it seemed like the football program left with us.
Let me tell you – it’s hard to root for team that is mocked (and in some ways, rightfully so!), but there’s no fair-weather fan here! Bobby Bowden “retiring” was a sad day – but perhaps the best thing for Florida State football. We’re back, baby!
Even though I will be sleeping during the game tonight, I am highly anticipating the outcome of this game. Long live the spirit of the Seminoles…
**And to my college roommate Katie, who lives in Oklahoma — I hope you are shouting the fight song to all of those Sooners fans today!!**
Who’s are rooting for today?? Bonus points if you say the Seminoles!
