I can speak for most Florida State students when I say that the opening game versus Alabama didn't go exactly as we planned. Sure, I could have predicted a second half comeback, maybe a nail biting score, or even a loss. I knew that the game was going to be a challenge. It was our first game of the season and it just so happened to be against an extremely talented team.

My expectations were to keep up with Alabama and really just enjoy watching the game. I would have never predicted that Deondre Francois would be out for the rest of the season due to a knee injury from the game. The devastation that everyone is feeling here in Tallahassee is at an all time high. It feels as though we are saying goodbye to our beloved football season before it even starts.

There's a lot of things that I would give up just to have our quarterback healthy and back on the field. Unfortunately, nothing that I give up will save this season, but a girl can dream, can't she?
