Chief Osceola and Renegade, mascot for Florida...

Florida State is looking good this year (2012) and hopes are high that this is the year they live up to their promise.  Nevertheless, being a Seminole is more than just winning football games.  That’s what separates up from hillbillies in Gainesville and around the world that comprise the Gator Nation (UF is a great academic school and football program).

For those of you who don’t know, I’m a huge Florida State(college football) and Chicago Cubs fan(thank you Vinton family).  My mother birthed me in the city of Tallahassee(a beautiful place) and I’ve had the honor to enjoy watching Florida State since I was a little boy.  From Bobby Bowden, to the beauty of Doak Campbell Stadium, to Chief Osceola and Renegade- being a Seminole fan has always been about more than winning.  There is just an inherent beauty and swagger about Florida State and its traditions that surpass any winning or losing record.  This post is a collection of my favorite videos that represent the Garnet and Gold.

No matter what happens, I’d just like to say Roll Tribe!

I love Bobby Bowden!  One of my heroes!
