The Florida State Seminoles had a weekend to remember. Closing out the regular season, head coach Mike Norvell and Co. finished stronger than some would expect and showed improvement in many aspects of the climb. Losing to rival UF was painstaking but looking forward there are a lot of things to be excited about heading into a recruiting bonanza this off-season.
Women’s soccer held on against Michigan advancing to the College Cup, football seniors planned their goodbyes and, men’s basketball squeaked one out in overtime against Boston. Here are some highlights from over the weekend:
The iconic rivalry between Florida State and the Gators was somewhat disappointing to the Nole faithful stomaching a loss on the road 21-24. However, seniors, the draft-eligible, and former players expressed their love for the program and their faith moving forward:
And just like that… thank you #NoleFamily for everything. Y’all’s support and love did more for me and this team than y’all will ever know. Best fan base in the country. Seminole 4L— Jermaine Johnson II (@ii_jermaine) November 28, 2021
I want to take the time to say thank you to @ii_jermaine and @_popcool. You have made this former Nole DL very proud. Not only with your play, but more importantly, your leadership. If I can ever do anything to help, please don't hesitate to reach out. Forever NoleBlooded!— Corey Simon (@csime90) November 28, 2021
Meanwhile, the coaching carousel has already begun:
Florida fans better hope they get his DC, Patrick Toney. That is the secret sauce there. But he will have lots of opportunities. But if they don’t I’m way less excited about this hire https://t.co/1xQbaN2QEr— Chris B. Brown (@smartfootball) November 28, 2021
