SodTalk Legends

 


Saturday’s 2 p.m. SodTalk celebrates the Seven Magnificents

Saturday’s 2 p.m. SodTalk for the FSU/Miami game will celebrate one of the greatest defensive football teams in NCAA history, the Seven Magnificents, who lead the 1964 Gator Bowl Champion Seminoles. Returning as SodTalk Legends after 55 years will be FSU Hall of Famers noseguard Jack Shinholser and linebacker Dick Hermann, along with defensive tackle Avery Sumner.

The Sod Cemetery will be resplendent on Saturday with 12 arrangements of orange and green flowers celebrating 12 Sod Game Victory Graves for wins over the Miami Hurricanes. Graveside viewing will be open to both Seminole and Hurricane family and friends.

The Seven Magnificents (and their defensive backfield, the Forgotten Four) allowed only 66 points in 10 regular season games. They defeated Georgia 17-14, Miami 14-0, 5th ranked Kentucky 48-6, and beat the 12th ranked Gators 16-7 in Florida’s first visit to Tallahassee. After four games, FSU had outscored its opponants 108-6 and then only Virginia Tech scored more than 14 points in the regular season. In FSU’s first major bowl game, these Seminoles defeated Oklahoma 36-19.

SodTalk will be under shade trees and tents in front of Dick Howser Baseball Stadium next to the Sod Cemetery, 90 minutes before the 3:30 p.m. kickoff.

FSU Hall of Famer Jack Shinholser, from Tampa, was an undersized 209 pound noseguard who wreaked havoc on FSU’s opponents for three varsity years. In the historic first win over UF, he caused a fumble to stop a Steve Spurrior Gator drive inside the 5 yard line, earning National Lineman of the Week honors and then was named Outstanding Lineman in the Gator Bowl win over Oklahoma. He became an All American defensive lineman in 1965.

Marianna’s Dick Hermann, also an FSU Hall of Famer, was a tough and quick linebacker who made a 135 tackles in three years of varsity football. He played his best in big games, making 18 tackles against Auburn, 16 against Georgia, and 14 against Miami. He won FSU’s Ben Crenshaw Award as the “Seminole with the Biggest Heart” and became an Oakland Raider with his FSU teammate, Fred Biletnikoff.

Defensive tackle Avery Sumner came to FSU from Adel, Georgia. For three years he anchored a defensive line that was one of the strongest in the country. In summer of 1964, he convinced his defensive linemen and linebackers to shave their heads and they became the Seven Magnificents. In 1964, FSU shocked the football world when his then unranked Seminoles defeated 5th ranked Kentucky 48-6 in one of the biggest upsets in college football history. Sumner lead FSU with an amazing 15 tackles from his defensive tackle position.

The Sod Cemetery is in its 57th season and SodTalk is in its 6th season.
