Yesterday, we wrapped up our summer countdown series of the top ‘Noles to wear each jersey number for the garnet and gold. Chronicled below is the list of the Seminoles who’ve received the most votes, at every respective number.

I came up with this idea as a means of getting FSU fans talking during the long offseason that is summer, and hoped that those conversations would span teams, generations, and even the entire arc of Florida State football history. The participation of you, the readers, those who’ve voted and made your cases in the comments sections, have made that goal a reality. And we’ve had a lot of fun debating along the way.

But while I wrote the plurality of these pieces, these discussions would have never gotten off the ground had it not been for my fellow Tomahawk Nation writers Curt Weiler and Andrew Miller. My most sincere thanks go out to them for the work they put into facilitating the fantastic conversations that have fueled what has been a lively and enjoyable summer series.

But without further ado, here you are: the top recipients of votes for the best Seminoles to make their marks wearing each number, along with the percentage of the vote they received. Those to eclipse the 90% mark have been italicized.
