Back home in South Florida, fall generally means one thing: football season. In many ways, it’s the best time of the year back home, no matter you root for. While I’m at school, I can’t really go to any big-time football games, but my weekend routine has remained the same: plenty of football, not enough studying.
This gameday is a bit different though: tonight’s the 55th meeting between the Florida State Seminoles and my Miami Hurricanes. You can bet that I’ve been asking myself why I didn’t go home this weekend: there’s no place I’d rather be tonight than Joe Robbie Stadium. The UM-FSU rivalry is one of the greatest in the game (though I know the lovely ladies at Free Honey may disagree) and fans across Florida look forward to it every year. It’s a game that never lacks drama, and now that both teams are ranked in the Top 25, the relevance is there too.
Throwback: God, I love football. And my team. U of M, UM, UMiami, Suntan U, Quarterback U, whatever you want to call my team, you should know it’s all about the U.
What’s your favorite college football team? What do you think is the best rivalry?
P.S. I also wanted to share my gameday outfit!
