    I'm sure they'll release a statement something along the lines of...

    "Coming as no shock to Commissioner Delaney 102% of respondents voted in favor of the Leaders & Legends division names."

    Actually, Florida State started out as an all-female college (Florida State College for Women). Florida State went co-ed in 1947, which not coincidentally was the same year that the school began participating in football.

    Might be completely coincidental, but FSU called me last night (first time they've ever reached out via phone) asking if I'd like to make a donation to the school.

    Thought it was slightly interesting considering the timing with realignment and exit fees.
  9. Consider yourself lucky. I get calls from OSU and UF at least once a year.

    But yeah, that is an interesting coincidence, especially in light of their stated desire to become AAU-caliber.
  10. Walking around that campus still has the feel of walking around the campus of a women's college given the female to male ratio there and the quality of women that put those at UF to shame.

    If FSU was in the AAU, it'd be a home run.

    Too bad its an unlikely grab.

    There is something to be said, I guess, for a university stepping up and saying they will spend the cash to meet the requirements for membership - nothing like having someone who wants to be there pony up what they need beforehand.

    I have no idea where to begin to research this, but what are FSU's chances of getting into the AAU in the next 2 years or so?

    I agree. That's why I married one of them.

    Interesting, but I guess I'm missing what that has to do with its circus program, though I note that it was also started in 1947 apparently.

    ORD_Buckeye Kiss the ring, Fredo.

    ZERO. Georgia Tech just entered. FSU has a long fucking ways to go.
