With cameras flashing and teammates surrounding him, Watson reached down and retrieved a handful of the new stadium turf — the winner's spoils.
Call these Seminoles "sodbusters" — they'll take it in stride and with plenty of pride.
In 1962, an FSU professor addressed the Seminole team and challenged them to beat favored Georgia and "bring back some sod from between the hedges at Georgia."
The 'Noles obliged, returning with an 18-0 upset and a handful of Georgia's turf, presenting the sod to the professor at the next practice.
The sod was buried at the FSU practice field as a symbol of victory.
A monument followed, and a tradition was born.
