This is the first in a series of short articles which will be titled THE ROAD GOES ON FOREVER. These short pieces are designed to show exactly where the FSU SEMINOLE FOOTBALL TEAM stands in the history of the NCAA, and where they place in comparison to the other FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision, formerly known as Div I-A) teams.
Some of these articles, such as the one presented here today will consist of all time records, and some of the future articles will be for more recent years. I will try to mix it up, to give you some of the new information and stats, with some of the more interesting (at least IMO) all time facts and figures that possibly many of you "Newer Generation Noles" will hopefully also find interesting and entertaining. As I have said in previous articles, it's summer and practices have not yet started, so I will try to wet your football whistle, at least somewhat.
While I may offer some observations and a few comments in each part of this series, the younger NOLES can relax. There will not be any war stories, history lessons, or significant analysis included to bore you with. These articles will be short, to the point, will be just the facts, not much more, and nothing less.
While we here at TN always welcome and encourage your thoughts, opinions, and comments, it will be up to you to decide the relevance of the facts presented and to respond accordingly. Your responses will help us guage whether to continue with this series, or not, if the interest is not there.
I do hope you enjoy.

*While I do not claim to have gathered all of these numbers and done all of the calculations above, I am very confident on the accuracy of these numbers. I would like to withhold my sources for this and any future information I will be presenting until the last part of the series is published. At that time, I will give full credit to all of the sources I used to gather all of the information from.
Some quick thoughts. Only Boise State has played fewer games than FSU. FSU only started playing football in 1947, where some of these other teams have been playing since the late 1800's.
Trivia question of the day, which only the prior generation of NOLES might know the answer to, however everyone is welcomed to guess. But please, no peaking into the information highway Bobby calls EBay. Where did I get the title of this series "THE ROAD GOES ON FOREVER" from?
Any thoughts or comments are always welcomed and appreciated.
