A College Professor Choosing The Seminoles' Stadium As His Reading Room Is A Sign That Florida State Has Hit Rock Bottom
Backstory aside, the type of "fan" that's willing to go topless in public also having some literature handy just in case a stadium that's five years removed from housing a National Champion was turned a library-level of silent is a terrible, awful, no good, very bad look. Never mind the score at the time, because a grown man treating the bleachers like a private beach is almost...almost...a bigger indictment of the current state of Florida State football than a 49-point shellacking at the hands of a team that's annually replaced them atop the ACC.
That said, the context somehow makes it an even worse look...
We're talking about a college professor here. The type of person who is occupationally inclined to best know where to go to escape the half-drunk hustle and belligerent bustle of barely legal boozehounds at a prominent party school, and he rightfully chose the one place that no one would ever reasonably expect to get some reading done. Presumably the smartest person in the stadium just showed up, book in hand, and patiently waited for the Clemson Tigers to inevitably claw the life out of both the home team and it's fanbase before popping off the top and losing himself in the written word. I think we can all agree that picture is absolutely preposterous in how perfect a representation it is of Seminoles' football, and yet it doesn't even tell the whole story of a molder of intoxicated minds thinking one step ahead of them in promising himself some peace and quiet.
