FSU’s Opening Win Heightens Excitement For The Season


Something is rumbling in the depths of Florida State University students as the new year begins. The craving, desire, and hunger, for a victorious football season. Equipped with the highest preseason ranking in the ACC in a decade, the reality of a national championship drive is looking bright, but kicking off the season, the Seminoles faced the Warhawks of the University of Louisiana at Monroe this past Saturday, at Doak Campbell Stadium, where we left triumphant with a 34-0 win. The opponents ended last season with a 5 wins and 7 losses record, compared to our 10 wins and 4 losses, where we also finished with a refreshing Chick-Fil-A Bowl victory. Coach Jimbo Fisher’s second year with the team brings a roster of players expected to impress. The dynamic EJ Manuel takes over as quarterback, with a winning record and blossoming experience, which he demonstrated in this last game. We seem to be very strong on the defensive line and backfield, also complemented by a stellar linebacking core. Offensively, a top notch line and a good running game will keep us advancing. The running back core features Jermaine Thomas, Chris Thompson, and Lonnie Pryor, among others, giving Coach Fisher plenty of options to utilize for the attack. The wide receivers in tandem with Manuel’s excellent throwing arm should make for a superb season as well. On special teams, Greg Reid proved he is one of the best punt returners in the country, featuring elusive moves and great speed. Dustin Hopkins returned as field goal kicker, mastering tremendous range and great accuracy. As we sit at No. 5 on the Coaches poll and No. 6 on the Associated Press poll, the season’s expectations have reached an irrevocable apex. With unrelenting precision and determination, this weekend’s game was a smooth outcome, and the season will be one to remember.
