Sod Talk debuts with FSU HOF inductees

One of Florida State’s biggest pregame traditions will return before Saturday’s home game against ULM.

SodTalk returns to the stage at 3:30 p.m., 90 minutes before FSU’s football kickoff, featuring FSU’s newest Hall of Fame inductees. Sod Talk begins its sixth season at the FSU Sod Cemetery, which celebrates its 58th year as one of college football’s greatest traditions.

Fans can meet and hear from FSU’s latest Hall of Famers under the shade of new tents on the cemetery plaza, which is just outside the football practice field and near Dick Howser Stadium.

Saturday’s Sod Talk legends will be the NCAA’s all-time winningest coach in any sport, FSU baseball’s Mike Martin, four-time All-American golfer Caroline Westrup, baseball All-American second baseman Dick Nichols, and two-time All-Conference basketball guard Mickey Dillard.

QB Rick Stockstill’s tight end, Sam Childers, will talk about his teammate, who will be coaching on Saturday, and FSU national champion track coach Bob Braman will speak for the Seminoles’ greatest women’s distance runner, Susan Kuijken, who is competing on Saturday.

Fans can meet the legends for autographs and photos beginning at 3:10 p.m., before SodTalk.
