How we feeling Florida State fans?

Two days after Sunday’s overtime thriller against Notre Dame, this fanbase feels rejuvenated and riding high despite the end result of the game. Many used their Labor Day to reminisce about a Doak that felt like the days of old, pushing a top ten team to the brink in front of a massive national TV audience.

At Tomahawk Nation, we spent our Labor Day doing the opposite of the holiday’s intention by putting in a lot of work to get you guys everything you need to get the full picture of the team’s performance Sunday night.

Plenty of people on social media, did the same posting pictures and videos of the experience from all around Doak.

And there were plenty of moments that caused tears around the stadium as well, starting with the tributes to the legend himself, Bobby Bowden...

The return of McKenzie Milton...

And the reunion of Dillan GIbbons and Timothy Donovan.

This team has a lot to be proud of it despite the final score and they seem determined to make sure it correlates to more than just a close loss.

Thanks to the Labor Day holiday, Tuesday will be the first time we hear from Mike Norvell and the players since their postgame comments so keep checking in to Tomahawk Nation throughout the day as we get those updates to you and begin our work toward the Jacksonville State game this weekend.

Recruiting

Sunday’s game was a loss on the scoreboard, but it certainly feels like a huge win in the recruiting front. The crowd, comeback and coaching staff made a huge impression on what could be the next wave of Seminoles stars.

Baseball

That recruiting push carried over to the baseball side as well with Mike Martin’s group landing a commitment from Noah Sheffield, the son of former MLB All-Star Gary Sheffield.
