Fans at the game shouted an endless barrage of insults ranging from wild profanities to sexual slurs. Understand that this wasn’t just some of the fans. It was nearly all of them. The tailgating beforehand was manageable, but only if we didn’t leave our area.

The only time it really got to me was when I had beer thrown on me.

Letter to the Editor: FSU student has nightmare experience at NC State

FSU News Letters To The Editor

My friends and I were just four of the 11 FSU students who bought tickets for the NC State game last weekend. We made the 10 hour trek and had a great time, besides going to the actual game. Sure, the loss was tough but what truly ruined the experience was the hatred we received from NC State fans.

I had assumed that when you travel to the true ‘South’, you would instantly be met with politeness and hospitality executed at all times in a slow and charming drawl. This wasn’t quite the case. Maybe it was their mediocre season record so far that fueled the residents of Raleigh, or maybe it was the fact that we chose to sit in the first and thirds rows of their student section. There were no Marching Chiefs, of course, and no other fans in sight. It was just us four.

The main offenses were thrown gum, popcorn, and other food items. One young lady pushed my friend in the front row, causing him to almost lose his balance and fall 10 feet onto the cement. A kind-looking older gentlemen with the appearance of Santa Claus looked me in the eyes and gave the simple utterance, “f**k you.”

Fans at the game shouted an endless barrage of insults ranging from wild profanities to sexual slurs. Understand that this wasn’t just some of the fans. It was nearly all of them. The tailgating beforehand was manageable, but only if we didn’t leave our area. The only time it really got to me was when I had beer thrown on me.

I have issues with some of the NC State traditions, themselves. Instead of honoring the “home of the brave” in our National Anthem, they shouted “home of the Wolfpack.” After every kickoff, they shouted “you suck.” When you perpetuate these kinds of arrogant chants, its no surprise what kind of disrespect grows from them.

I understand the passion of sports rivalries, but the disgusting behavior of almost everyone I encountered in Raleigh that day was enough to make me never come back (and I’m sure they’re fine with that). I would sincerely like to believe that if it were the other way around, our Tallahassee community would not have shown this level of disrespect on such a widespread scale to our guests and respected competitors.

I’d also like to extend a special shout-out to the kid who gator chopped at me for the entire four quarters. I hope your arms aren’t too sore. To the rest of NC State, good game and enjoy being relevant for a week. “Move those chains!”

The image lingers still, a full year later. It seems like just yesterday, the hopes and dreams of the team were collectively crushed, shot down in one fell swoop.

A 16-0 lead at halftime disappeared as Mike Glennon and the NC State Wolfpack marched down the field and made the then-No. 3 Seminoles look like any other conference opponent. Pass after pass, fourth down after fourth down until finally, the final touchdown was scored and the Wolfpack found themselves with a 1-point lead with 16 seconds remaining.

Title chances gone and national respect erased in one single play. The season, which could still be considered successful come ACC Championship time, would now be looked on as a failure. All the hype, all the expectations were suddenly nonexistent.

“I definitely remember,” senior linebacker Telvin Smith said of the play that ended it all. “In particular, I feel like on the play they scored, I was on No. 10 and he caught the pass. I tried to jump it and get an interception. But he caught it and ran it in for the touchdown. That feeling, I felt like I let the team down when I didn’t make that play.”

Some could maybe think that losing was a blessing in disguise; last year’s team had all the talent in the world, but not the same discipline or companionship that this year’s edition has. Maybe the ’Noles would have slipped up later on in the season against a lesser ACC opponent, or they still would have lost in the regular season finale against Florida.

“Just like in life, there’s always that one girl that got away, there’s always that one play that got away,” redshirt senior Bryan Stork said. “It got away from us. I look back, I already watched the game from last year, look at what you did wrong, what you did that week. Did you get enough sleep? Did you eat right? Did you watch enough film? Did you have a good practice?”

This year, the Seminoles come in as 31.5 favorites, as opposed to 14.5 ones. The game is in Tallahassee, not Raleigh and the two quarterbacks from last year’s game, Glennon and EJ Manuel, are now starters in the NFL, far away from the ghosts of their college pasts.

The players that are still around, however, have had to live with that loss for over a year now. They’ve had to think about that final play, that entire game throughout the rest of that season, throughout this whole season. They’ve heard the whispers that they’re destined to slip up against an inferior opponent, they’re aware that everybody is spreading the trivia of how the last four times that the Seminoles were ranked and played NC State, they’ve lost (No. 3 FSU last year, 17-16 in Raleigh; No. 16 Florida State in 2010, 28-24 in Raleigh; No. 17 Florida State in 2006, 24-20 in Raleigh; and the No. 9 Seminoles in 2005, 20-15 in Tallahassee).

“This team [is different], I guess just because we’ve been through certain situations so we’ve come together,” Smith said. “We’ve grown every year and learned from every situation. So we lost to Oklahoma and then lost a few straight, back to back. Then last year, we lost to NC State and learned from the year before and regrouped fast. Then, this year, we’re in the same position, now we’ve got to play this team and keep it going and learn from every year. We’re going to keep going and keep getting better.”

“We actually started talking about right when we got done with the Clemson game,” said Christian Jones, another senior who has been through all the letdowns of the past. “We finish the game, it’s on to the next one. We felt horrible after that game last year, we’re one drive away from winning it and we end up losing at NC State. That’s something that kind of sticks with us even throughout this season. We’re going to prepare for NC State like any other team.

“In this game you got to have a short memory about what happens. You always think about it, but all we know is we’re going to prepare this weekend so it doesn’t happen again.”

Come Saturday, there will be significantly less hype surrounding the game than there was last week against Clemson, than there will be next week against Miami, even less than there was against Maryland earlier in the year. NC State is a 3-3 team that has failed to win an ACC game. Their quarterback has three touchdowns on the year; Jameis Winston has that many in four games this year alone. Half the stadium will be gone by the third quarter, and nobody will really care.

Except for this team, who have been haunted by 17-16 since the day it happened. For them, this will be a cleansing of the past, an exorcism of the demons.

They’ll finish this game, and then it’s on to the next one.

No. 2 Florida State looked exactly the part on Saturday, dominating NC State in a 49-17 victory. The Seminoles scored 35 points in the first quarter alone, and then added another score in the second quarter before throwing in the second-stringers for the remainder of the game.

Jameis Winston finished the day 17 of 26 for 312 yards, with three touchdowns and an interception. Devonta Freeman added two rushing scores, along with Karlos Williams Sr. and Kermit Whitfield adding in a rushing touchdowns of their own.

FULL RECAP COMING SOON
