Mark, I am not sure if you were at the game (not a knock, literally not sure). I was at the game and I had heard so much about the "Hostile Environment" of FSU. I was actually unimpressed with their fans in terms of noise and craziness. I was actually going to do a piece on it, but thought it would come off wrong, since we got our butts kicked.
For starters the entire south section of the bowl was only about half full and that was with the band sitting in in the stands. The only time FSU fans got loud was when they played the war chant or whatever that is.
I was not at the Air Force game, but have played there and the cadets when I played were way more vocal than the FSU fans. Had this game taken place in the late 90’s or early 2000’s it may have been different, but I didn’t sense any intimidation in Tallahassee.
