The line stretched out around the brand new dick's sporting goods in Tallahassee. Bowden fans were decked out in garnet and gold. They all waited till the king arrived. One fan said, "We got here at 6:30 this morning."

Another fan says, she left everything behind just to move to Seminole country.

"I left my job , sold my house to move up to Tallahassee to be a true Seminole fan," said Jane Starkey, an FSU fan.
