Big Dance success could get the FSU athletic program past academic fraud scandal

“Even if we’re just dancing in the dark.”

Who knew that noted NCAA bracketologist Bruce Springsteen’s famous lyric would apply to Florida State’s basketball team as the Seminoles prepare for tonight’s opening round game against Wisconsin in the NCAA Tournament?
For the first time in more than a decade, the Seminoles will be dancing tonight, but their Boise bossa nova comes in the midst of one of the darkest periods in the history of FSU athletics. Now, more than ever, students, fans, alumni and faculty need something to feel good about. A beacon amid the badness.
