That’s one exclamation point for each championship I’ve been able to enjoy as a lifelong FSU Seminoles fan 🙂
I’m so excited that Florida State won the big game tonight! What a roller coaster. I actually turned it off in the middle of the second quarter, it was too hard to watch while they were losing so badly.
But they never gave up. Even when Auburn put that TD on the board with just more than a minute left, the guys kept their cool and drove all the way down the field for the winning touchdown. Unreal.
Friends, I’m a huge, huge fan of Florida State football. Still in post-game excitement mode as I type this post, so there really isn’t much substance to it other than to say YEAH FSU!!! Way to go. Congratulations on an outstanding season.
I had the chance to relax a bit today and in the process, saw some fantastic finishes as part of Rivalry Week in college football.
My beloved Florida State Seminoles weren’t involved in one of those close endings, but a convincing win over the rival Florida Gators to get to within one win of playing for a national title was just fine with me 🙂
Then there was the Michigan-Ohio State game. Kudos to Michigan coach Brady Hoke for going for the win on the two point conversion instead of kicking the extra point and heading to overtime. It didn’t work and Michigan ended up losing by that lone point, but I like the gutsy call anyway.
After that, there was the Georgia Tech-Georgia game. Two overtimes, and a final play that looked more like something you’d see in a pinball game finally resulting in a Georgia win in a back and forth game.
Finally, the finish of all finishes in the Auburn-Alabama Iron Bowl game. The unthinkable! One second gets put back on the clock at the end of regulation in a tie game, giving Alabama a chance to steal a win at the last second and preserve its #1 ranking. Show of hands who predicted Auburn’s Chris Davis to catch the ball after the kick fell just short of the goal post and then run it back within inches of the sideline, through the entire Alabama team and into the end zone to win it and shock the sports world in the process. Yeah, I didn’t see that coming either. Wow.
Unbelievable stuff. What a day! Heck, the night games are barely under way so who knows what else might happen tonight in the wild endings department. But my oh my, it was fun watching some great games this afternoon. College football is awesome!
