Florida State Football Sod Cemetery

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Florida State's Sod Cemetery
Florida State's Sod Cemetery

For Florida State Football, "sod games" and the Sod Cemetery have been a rich part of the Seminoles college football history, commemorating many of FSU greatest's victories away from home. "Sod games" represent the most difficult battles on the football field. The Sod Cemetery stands as a tribute to those triumphs.

In 1962, as the Seminoles completed their Thursday practice in preparation to face Georgia at Sanford Stadium, Dean Coyle Moore—a long-time professor and member of FSU's athletic board—issued a challenge: "Bring back some sod from between the hedges at Georgia." On Saturday, October 20, the Seminoles scored an 18-0 victory over the favored Bulldogs. Team captain Gene McDowell pulled a small piece of grass from the field, which was presented to Moore at the next football practice. Moore and FSU coach Bill Peterson had the sod buried on the practice field as a symbol of victory. A monument was placed to commemorate the triumph and the tradition of the sod game was born. Since 1988 the Keeper of the Sod Cemetery has been Tallahassee attorney Douglas Mannheimer.

Before leaving for all road games in which Florida State is the underdog, all road games at the University of Florida and all ACC championship and bowl games, Seminole captains gather their teammates to explain the significance of the tradition. Victorious captains return with a piece of the opponent's turf to be buried in the Sod Cemetery inside the gates of the practice field.[1]

Since 2014, on gamedays at FSU, fans gather at the Sod Cemetery 90 minutes before the kickoff for Sod Talk. Legendary former Seminole players return to take the stage and tell the gathered fans about their days at Florida State. SodTalk Legends have included Heisman Trophy Winner Charlie Ward, NFL Man of the Year Warrick Dunn, NFL Hall of Famer Derrick Brooks, Lombardi and Butkus Winner Marvin Jones, NFL Hall of Famer Fred Biletnikoff, WWF Heavyweight World Champion Ron Simmons, College Football Hall of Famer Ron Sellers, Consensus All American and National Championship MVP Peter Warrick and FSU All-American and creator of the Lambeau Leap, Leroy Butler.

Bowl game victories are colored ██ gold. Championship victories are colored ██ garnet.
