Let the choosin’ continue and give the defenders their due!
To help the off-season pass a bit faster, TN determined the top four Florida State Seminoles in school history at each position, constructing and sculpting a positional Mount Rushmore for them as voted on by the Tomahawk Nation community.
Now that a (much needed) bye week has arrived for the 4-0 Seminoles, it’s time to wrap this series up. And if y’all thought that going position-by-position was difficult, it’s about to get much harder.
This week, we’re taking it to the next level. On Tuesday, we revealed the Mount Rushmore for FSU Offense. Today we present to you the options for the Mount Rushmore of FSU Defense, with results on Thursday.
Voting will begin for the Mount Rushmore of FSU Legends on Friday, based on the results on offense and defense. We’ll reveal the final results on Sunday after the four greatest Seminole players of all time are decided.
To make the cut for the offense and defense Mount Rushmore, each player needed to accrue at least 50% of the vote for his particular position group.
