Noles Need Opponent In Sept.

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The Florida State Seminoles football team is desperately looking for a new opponent after West Virginia University bought its way out of a game in 2012 and 2013.

According to the Palm Beach Post, FSU has put out calls to Oklahoma, Rutgers, Texas A&M, Syracuse and Pittsburgh, but none of the schools FSU has reached out to have agreed to play the Seminoles.

FSU’s schedule now has September 8 open and the Noles have to make a decision on whether to continue pursuing a Division I opponent or schedule a team from the Football Championship Series.

The Noles would prefer a Football Bowl Subdivision opponent, but getting a school to agree to come to Tallahassee at this late of a date may be a tough sell for most respectable opponents.

    Actually they only bought their way out of the 2012 game. FSU has to decide if they still want to go to West Virginia in 2013. if they don’t, they will owe WVU a significant amount of money back.

    My mother-in-law went to Marshall, and she always thought that folks at WVU lacked class in how they conducted themselves. Seems she was right. How low-rent can you get? Maybe WVU can schedule a game with one of the local high school teams to display their prowess and their sportsmanship playing with other children.

    Call UH Cougars. They have a 2012 opening. They’d probably travel to Florida next year for a return trip when they open their new stadium.
