Here at Tomahawk Nation, we’re big fans of history, particularly recent history. There is a lot of value in analyzing a specific timeframe and looking for significant trends and events. For the sake of this discussion, let’s use the past 2,000 days. 2,000 is a nice, even, round number for the purposes of this article. This would mean that we would take a look at all of the notable things that have happened since November 24, 2012.

In the past 2,000 days:

  • The Florida State University football program has won 56 games, 3 ACC Championships, and won a National Championship.
  • There have been 6 Heisman Trophy Winners. One of them, Jameis Winston, was a ’Nole.
  • Tim Tebow was actually an active member of a National Football League roster.
  • Marvel has had a total of 13 theatrical releases. One of us thinks that’s way too many; the other is wrong.
  • Game of Thrones has won 30 Primetime and Creative Arts Emmy Awards. The show received a staggering 85 nominations in that timeframe.
  • FSU football alum Antonio Cromartie has fathered 4 children after having a vasectomy, which is one of the few statistics that is arguably more impressive than the previous one about Game of Thrones.

This is all just to say that a lot of things have transpired in the 2,000 days since the aforementioned date in November 2012. Except one: the University of Florida has not beaten FSU in a collegiate football game.

And you thought history wasn’t any fun.
