Miami vs. Florida State

November 12, 2011

Miami faced Florida State this afternoon at Doak Campbell Stadium.  Joe and I each got a couple of tickets through work.  He brought along his friend Gary while I brought Becky.  Due to circumstances beyond our control we got to the stadium late and were unable to tailgate.  It also turned our our tickets were smack in the middle of the Miami section.  Thankfully their fans were very respectful and we were able to watch the game without incident.

With regards to the game it was a strange one.  The ACC referees were on full display as they reviewed calls, reversed their on the field decisions and then reversed the reversals.  Frankly it was embarrassing and both the ‘Canes and ‘Noles fans were at a loss as to why certain decisions were made.

Heading into the fourth quarter the Seminoles had a comfortable lead.  Of course, this being the Miami game, Al Golden and his boys made a late charge and trimmed the lead to 23-17.  The Seminoles recovered the ‘Canes onside kick attempt and earned the win.  It was a sloppy game for both teams, but any day you can beat the U is a good one in my book.

*Note: I took the above picture to show how surrounded we were by Hurricane fans. Turns out the guy in the orange cap and orange jersey in the middle of the picture is @akosnitzky, someone I talk to on Twitter.  I did not know this until a few days after the game when I posted the picture on Tumblr.  Talk about a small world!
