"I didn't know it was being rescheduled," said FSU student Daniel Berger.

Florida State Athletic officials announced Wednesday that the National Championship Celebration is postponed. This comes after FSU Associate Athletic director Rob Wilson released a statement saying some players would not be able to attend the celebration due to travel plans.
"As long as they are still doing it I'm going to be there. I'm not that upset but I was kind of planning it into my Saturday," said Berger.
"I want to see all the players and especially the ones that are entering the draft because they are important and I'm okay with it," said FSU student Marcus Jordan.
While fans will have to wait for the official 2013 National Championship celebration, the United Way says their event, the Downtown GetDown is still scheduled and can be thought of as part one of the celebration.
"We are happy to announce that the Downtown GetDown will go on as planned Friday night January 17 at six o'clock on the Adams Commons so we hope people will join us," said President of United Way of the Big Bend Heather Mitchell.
Mitchell says fans can expect food and drink vendors, FSU cheerleaders as well as a great time for the family.
"This is our 15th year doing the Downtown GetDown series and so when this win happened we called FSU and said 'Hey this is ranked as one of the top 5 things by ESPN to do before a home game, why don't we do this while we celebrate the trophy coming here,' so they loved the idea too," added Mitchell.
Fans say they wouldn't miss the celebration for the world.
"I'm going to be there whatever time it is. We're the Champs!"
