As all of you are aware, I attended and graduated from the University of Florida. As some of you may not know, the entire rest of my family consists of Florida State supporters. Both of my older sisters graduated from FSU. Both of my brothers-in-law attended FSU. And my parents have been FSU season ticket holders since 1988 when my oldest sister enrolled at Florida State. As a result of this, I've attended many, many FSU games during my lifetime. Plenty of memorable ones too. The 'Choke at Doak', the 'Sean Taylor game'. Shit, I was even in attendance when Ty Willingham came into Tallahassee and gave the Noles a beatdown and had irish fans dreaming of National Titles. Plenty of the games I saw were during my early youth but a good number also happened during my time as a student at Florida. See, if Florida was on a bye or playing an away game that didn't conflict with the FSU game that day I'd often go up to Tallahassee for the weekend to visit my family (my oldest sister, her husband and kids live in Tallahassee) and attend the football game. Not because I enjoy hearing the racist FSU war chant 3500 times a night, but because I enjoy high profile college football games (and it's always fun to be in Doak Campbell Stadium when the Seminoles lose). Why am I bringing this up? Well, I'm tired of looking at a shirtless midget every time I log on to G:TB...and because I was in the stadium the last time that FSU took on Clemson in a high profile night game. It didn't start well for Clemson.
That was pretty much all she wrote for Clemson that night. Let's hope tonight's game is more exciting. It's a big (and long) day of college football kids. Hydrate, pace yourselves and meet me in the comments.
