Our latest in a series celebrating the 20th Anniversary of Florida State's first national championship.
It was 1993, two decades ago, when Miami came to Tallahassee high on swagger, confident that they'd derail the undefeated Noles. Even Canes fans were talking trash as they jostled through the crowds entering Doak.
If you were there, you remember the dome of humidity that descended over the stadium. It may have been October but there was no hint of fall weather. You recall undersized WR Matt Frier getting behind the Canes secondary and outrunning them all the way to the end zone. And then there was the determined running of Sean Jackson and freshman Warrick Dunn, not to mention Charlie Ward's near flawless performance.
There were players hooked up to IVs at halftime, fierce hitting from start to finish, after the clock hit zeros, a curious site: William Floyd sitting on the turf around the 30-yard line just looking up at the scoreboard, drinking in the indelible memory of a beautiful sight: FSU 28 - Opponent 10.
