My first week of class is over, it’s a three-day weekend, AND college football has commenced!
I love this time of year! Fall, football, and crisp weather! I was up until midnight last night pulling for Vandy against Ole Miss. It was a great way to kick off the festivities (even though they didn’t quite pull through) :(.
We plan to attend the UAB v. Vandy game in Nashville in a couple weeks and that should be a blast! We both bleed garnet and gold and have never had to root against each other… should set us up for some fun light hearted trash talking as my Blazers take on his Commodores. 🙂
As for our dear Florida State Seminoles. We finished 12-2 last season, were ACC champions, and had 11 players get drafted into the NFL with 3 going in the first round, not too bad really. However, the Seminole Nation was hoping that it was our year! With hopes of a national championship we suffered a devastating midseason loss to an unranked NC State, we were all left a bit heart broken. To add insult to injury, our only other loss last season was to the Florida Gators… how horrible! BUT Monday starts a new season for us, what will it entail? Will we show up to every game? We have the athleticism, will we meet and exceed expectations (Winston I’m looking at you buddy)? Trounce our in state rivals? Will Sunny get to go to her first ever FSU tailgate??? I sure hope so! 😀
FEAR THE SPEAR! Let’s go Florida State!
