What a week it’s been. As of 11:00 PM, Floridians are still preparing for Hurricane Dorian. Latest guidance shows that this powerful storm may stay off shore, sparing the state a full punch. Perhaps we all get lucky and this powerful storm will stay off shore. Then hey, all of those beverages and snacks you bought as part of your hurricane prep just became college football party time snacks.
These last few years for Florida State football hasve been nothing short of bizarre. Start a transfer QB from Notre Dame? Sure. Championship coach challenges a fan in the stands to a fight? Absolutely. Program declines, ole 5-6 leaves for that weird cult out west for ALL THE MONEY. But finally, a new coach arrives with a shiny high scoring offense in tow. The program was going to recover, get better, and move forward. Instead, the 2018 campaign only provided pain, showing off just how far the program had plummeted.
This year hasn’t started any different. A move from Jacksonville to Tallahassee because of a hurricane with less than 4 days notice is not easy. But it does seem par for the course, at this point. However, with everything that’s happened to this program recently, opening at home in Tallahassee just feels right. If you are within 2 hours driving of this game, go and give the ‘Noles a proper start the 2019 season.
