FSU prides itself as a school with a long storied history from the warchant to Renegade, but the recent changes has some fans stirred up.

"No ones really a fan, everyone is kind of confused, but I think everyone will grow to love it eventually. It's just been a certain way for so long that I think it's kind of a shock for everyone," said Kayla Megonegal, FSU Student.

Those who went to the spring game said the new uniforms gives the football team and updated look. "It looks very 21st century and I love the Indian part of it because its man on horse, fire and arrow. I think that represents more of the Seminole nation and I'm glad they brought that into the uniform," said Sue Cattanach, FSU Fan.

Although it might take some time for FSU fans to get used to the changes, many our encouraged that it will take root in the community.

"We're very happy about the logo, we think it will be associated with FSU athletics and hopefully with the university as a tradition very shortly," said Holt.
