Only FSU versus Miami, the only game that could possibly be "like that" on Saturday. Saturday marked the 5th game in a row in the series where there was a defensive touchdown called, on the field anyway. And the second consecutive where the TD was overturned by the replay dude. That's bizarre. Is there any other series out there that has had a defensive score in five straight games?
Only an FSU/Miami game would have a player ejected for the best hit (although not a great form tackle) of the game.
Only an FSU/Miami game would have a team lead by 10 at the half with three first downs and yet, leave the field angry because they had left another ten points out on the field, at least. Geez, don't get the first TD taken off the board, have the country's best kicker make the field goal at the end of the half, and assume all else stays the same, FSU is leading 27-7 at the break.
Only FSU/Miami brings out a great game from someone that nobody has ever heard of. Clive Watford? Is that the guy's name? Sounds like some kind of onion? And yet, at the biggest moments, he was the Cane receiver that ended up being the most effective. I feel bad for Mike Harris in the locker room. "Maaaaannnn, you got beat by a Jive, I mean a Chive, oops, a Clive."
Only in a Miami/FSU game does a guy get be both hero and goat, like Greg Reid, for example. That was one strange game that he played, as well.
Maybe it's because I've seen so many of the games in this series, but there are some weird things that happen in it. I'm glad another one's in the books. I'm thankful for the win. And speaking of strange things, for the first time EVER I left a game that we won, mad. And it was against Miami? I wasn't mad when we beat Jax State even, when we left. Shocked? Sure. Disturbed? Absolutely. Relieved? No doubt. But I wasn't "mad." I'm glad I'm over my anger now that I've watched the replay three times!
