FSU football will conclude spring practice this week when the garnet and gold will take the field for the annual spring game.
It seems like forever ago since the last time we’ve had a spring game in Tallahassee. However, FSU football has navigated things as best they could with the pandemic still going on concurrently with practice.
Some programs have had to issue pauses around COVID-19 related issues, but the Noles have been practicing steadily aside from some injured players.
There is a ton of excitement for several reasons. First, it’s the first spring game in the Mike Norvell era. Secondly, the number of recruits planning to attend the game is off the charts.

It’s not just recruits, but upper-tier quality blue-chip recruits across several different recruiting classes.
I’m curious as to how many FSU football fans will show up. Willie Taggart had a record of over 50,000 fans in attendance in 2018. The 2019 spring game drew around 28,000, despite the terrible 2018 season.
I know some fans may be cautious and choose to watch the game from home, but I’ve seen quite a few across different social media platforms confirm they have tickets to attend.
The tickets haven’t been available for purchase for long, but hopefully, the fan turnout will be impressive and we’ll see at least a couple of recruiting commitments.
Back to the spring game. This game will not mean anything since it’s a glorified scrimmage, so don’t get all caught up in the QB stats, etc. However, here are some questions I’m looking for answers to on Saturday.
