Random Thought #038: #5 FSU vs #1 Oklahoma

13 Sep

By Darius Barnes

Tallahassee is preparing for what could possibly be the biggest game of the year for the Seminoles, when the top-ranked Oklahoma Sooners (1-0) face the No. 5 Florida State Seminoles (2-0) at 7 p.m. CDT. The Florida State Seminoles have been waiting for this game since last year when they went in to Oklahoma and got crushed 47-17. This was a loss that has been on the Noles mind ever since they took that ride back to Tallahassee and I’m sure its been the game they have circled on their schedule. The Noles started the 2011 season coming in at number 5 while the Sooners are number 1. This game will arguably be the biggest game of the year for the Seminoles since this will be only the second time the Seminoles have hosted a No. 1 team, the first being Florida in a 24-21 FSU victory 15 years ago (1996).

New uniforms for a new era.

Coach Jimbo Fisher has his team more prepared this year and are ready to take down the Oklahoma Sooners. Players are a year older and are ready to avenge the beating they took last year. I’m personally ready for this game and all of Tallahassee is also. And if the hype around the game wasn’t enough, rumors have been circulating that Florida State will be wearing new uniforms this season to mark a new era in Seminole football. This era has been in the works for a long time but many think that the Noles have a chance to do something this year. Lets hope the hype around the game and anticipation of seeing the all white uniforms boost the Noles confidence.

The Seminoles need a resurgence for Tallahassee fans to get back into the football ways of winning and being on top like they once did dominating the ACC back in the 90’s. If they can pull this game out we will be well on our way.

To get everyone in the game spirit and build a rally around beating the Sooners a Facebook graphic may just add more excitement to the city and students who will be cheering and on their feet for 90 minutes.
