Before the LSU game, I said this was the most love former FSU football players had shown the team in quite some time.

Maybe it was because it was a national game in primetime against an SEC program with one of the best coaches in college football.

Either way, I saw a ton of former Noles showing support for the program, something that seems to have been lacking the past few years.

The program hasn’t given them much to brag about, but it was great to see. However, what’s even better is the team coming through and picking up a huge win on that national stage and seeing the reactions from the former players on social media.

Check out some of their reactions below:

Final Thoughts

That last statement says it all. I didn’t get every reaction, but you get the sentiment from the former players.

Look, LSU is a talented team, but they have a lot of flaws and limitations. Most FSU football fans realize that, but the progress this football program has made over the past year or so is what makes this so sweet.

The former players that have stayed close to the program understand what that progress has been like too. I can only hope this is the beginning of things when it comes to more former players rooting openly for a proud program with great tradition, even though it’s the youngest program in the upper echelon of college football.

FSU will have a bye week and go right back into prime time on the road against Louisville. A Louisville team that didn’t look great in their blowout loss against Syracuse and a Louisville team that plays three games in 13 days.

It’s a prime opportunity to continue opening eyes about where FSU football is going, and I hope to see more former players talking up their Noles!
