As the college football world prepares for Week 3 of the 2017 season, Florida State fans are still sitting on the sidelines waiting for the Seminoles to play their second game. Concerns over Hurricane Irma forced the cancellation of the ULM game and the postponement of the Miami game, so FSU won't hit the field again until next Saturday, Sept. 23, against visiting N.C. State.
That delay hasn't been easy for die-hard 'Nole fans. That's two weeks without seeing their favorite team in action, and two weeks without hanging with friends at tailgates. The season has barely started, and already it's in a painful holding pattern.
We here at Warchant.com understand your plight. So, in an effort to help, we've asked the members of our Tribal Council message board to tell us what they're doing to cope without Florida State football.
Some are trying to make the best of it by watching other teams play. Others are taking the "out of sight, out of mind" approach and ignoring the sport altogether. While others are tackling home projects or focusing on cleanup from Hurricane Irma.
Here's a look at what some of our members had to say:
The struggle is real
Some are trying to make the best of a tough situation
Some are raising their spirits with ... well, spirits
Some, unfortunately, are still recovering from Irma
Some are trying to be productive
And some might be in denial
