The 'Surrender Cobra' makes return to college football after Florida State blows 10-point lead at home
A sign of normalcy has returned to college football. That’s right, the infamous “Surrender Cobra” has made its return to stadiums this fall, making its most prominent appearance in Tallahassee on Saturday evening.
Florida State fans were in disbelief on Saturday, as the Seminoles dropped their season opener to Georgia Tech 16-13. The Noles started out hot, scoring a touchdown within the first seven minutes of the game and taking a 10-0 lead into halftime.
But the Yellow Jackets didn’t quit. Georgia Tech was able to reach the end zone twice and knock down a field goal in the second half, giving it just enough to get the win in Tallahassee.
Needless to say, fans were not happy:

Not a great start to the Mike Norvell era in Tallahassee.
Florida State has now lost three-straight games dating back to 2019. The Seminoles lost to Florida 40-17 in the regular season finale and dropped a 20-14 contest to Arizona State in the Sun Bowl.
The Seminoles have now lost four-straight season openers. The program’s last victory in its first game came in 2016 under Jimbo Fisher.
