Lowered Expectations

by | Oct 27, 2017 | News

Going into another Florida State Football Weekend with lowered expectations. While the video below from a old sketch comedy show MADTV is shared for laughs, the sad reality of what it represents is not a laughing matter. But as the old adage goes, “You have to laugh to keep from crying.”

I cannot remember a time, not even during all the Jeff Bowden years, that my expectations were so low. Will we win this weekend? I don’t know, I just hope we keep it competitive.

I’ve now followed this team for 31 years. I’ve called myself a Seminole for 26 of those. I’ve bled garnet and gold for more than two and a half decades. Don’t call me a bandwagon or fairweather fan for having such criticisms of this team or such low expectations. This team hasn’t earned my respect. Will I remain loyal as a fan? You betcha! But my passion for Florida State Football won’t allow me to settle for this sort of mediocrity. I believe changes are in the works. They HAVE to be! But for now, I’ll watch another game and just hope we remain competitive. If we win, it’ll just be a bonus.

I may need a lot more of these videos to keep from crying before the season’s over.
