Rain or Shine Play it and They Will Come

A soggy Saturday couldn't put out the fire burning inside Seminole fans yesterday. This was the scene outside Doak Campbell Stadium.

The much-anticipated rivalry between FSU and Miami sold out, but rain-soaked fans couldn't stay away. They pitched tents, turned on the satellite televisions, and lit up the grill. Jeremy Cloud an FSU fan said, "The rain is good, we are loyal fans, they may be the hurricanes but the rain doesn't bother us."

Seminole fans say whether it rains or shines you'll always see them camp outside when Miami comes to town.

This year's game action ended in defeat for the Seminoles but many die-hard fans were loyal to the end.

Before and after kick off, local law enforcement were on hand for the big show down with a game plan of their own. The Leon County Sheriff's Office had around 80 deputies on patrol for the game.

"We had a couple of people who had too much to drink, but overall, it's been a pretty calm ball game," said Leon County Sheriff, Larry Campbell.

Close to 50 Tallahassee Police Officers were also on hand to help with crowd control, direct traffic and provide security.
