They score, then go for the onsides kick?
LOVE IT! Musta been impressive!This was fun to see in person, the US Army Golden Knights parachute team jumped into the stadium by parachute from 3,000 feet. There was also a flyover from a US Navy P-3 Orion. There was a lot of Gator chomping from these two crews after they parked their aircraft and were honored on the field.
Thanks for the insights—narrative and backstory.I must give credit: the energy levels in the stadium matched Emory Jones’ and Brenton Cox’s performance in the first half, which declined right before the half. It picked up again at the half and was sustained by Anthony Richardson and Dameon Pierce on offense, and the entire defensive line in the second half. If Jones could have thrown the ball away as Richardson did there would not be as many interceptions. On defense it was the balance between timing the FSU offensive snap and being offsides.
In short: The energy was amazing throughout with short spurts of despair after interceptions.
Side observation: It was obvious many of the Nole fans were only here to beat the downtrodden Gators. The ones around me apparently had never been to a Nole game at the Erector Set. Younger FSU fans are trash. Older ones are cool. The older ones were surprised that we honored Bobby Bowden at the game. Spurrier himself had nothing but good things to say about his rival.
