“We are going to build a juggernaut:” FSU NIL collective The Battle’s End adds over 900 members in wake of playoff decision

“We are fully committed in continuing to support Coach Norvell and his staff to build a program that can never again be cheated by outside forces.”

“Put your money where your mouth is” personified.

In the wake of Florida State’s unprecedented exclusion from the 2023 College Football Playoff, NIL collective The Battle’s End has reported a massive upswing in contributions with over 900 members signing up to support the Seminoles.

“What happened this weekend was jarring, cowardly, and wrong,” the organization said in a statement. “Wrong to a degree that is difficult to adequately articulate. A group of adults could not make the tough decision with which they were willingly tasked. They decided to use injury as a scapegoat and, in the process, taught a nation of athletes and fans that perfection means nothing. These young men, this perfect team, were robbed of opportunities they earned through countless hours of work on and off the field. They deserved a chance to compete for a National Championship.

“With your support we are going to build a juggernaut. We are fully committed in continuing to support Coach Norvell and his staff to build a program that can never again be cheated by outside forces.”

The Battle’s End was established in December 2022 and officially opened donations to the public in late February.

The full release:

Working for The Battle’s End has been the opportunity of a lifetime for all of us. Without question, the most rewarding aspect has been getting to know the excellent young men that make up the 2023 FSU Football Team.

We are constantly impressed with the character, resilience, and work ethic of each of these players.

Make no mistake, this team is a true team. Their love for each other is palpable. When their leader went down, the defense responded by evolving into the best unit in college football - poised to take on all comers in unrelenting fashion. At the end of the season, this Team stands at a perfect 13-0. As a Team, they are, in all respects, perfect.

What happened this weekend was jarring, cowardly, and wrong. Wrong to a degree that is difficult to adequately articulate. A group of adults could not make the tough decision with which they were willingly tasked. They decided to use injury as a scapegoat and, in the process, taught a nation of athletes and fans that perfection means nothing. These young men, this perfect team, were robbed of opportunities they earned through countless hours of work on and off the field. They deserved a chance to compete for a National Championship.

While we are still numb and heartbroken by the Playoff Committee’s farcical decision, we salute the FSU fan base for their response. In the last two days, we have been thrilled to welcome more than 900 new TBE members!

It shows the resolve and unconquered spirit of the FSU faithful and is a reflection of the joy this perfect team brought back to every one of us. The Battle’s End is proud of the role we have played in the success of the 2023 team but our work has only begun.

With your support we are going to build a juggernaut. We are fully committed in continuing to support Coach Norvell and his staff to build a program that can never again be cheated by outside forces. We ask that you join The Battle’s End today.
