You can’t blame a marching band member for not having their head totally in the game. Several yards outside the field of play, they probably figured they’d be safe from any projectiles or errant passes.
They were wrong.
While attempting to throw the pass away, Florida State quarterback James Blackman still managed to put the ball within reach of a Seminole. Only this Seminole’s job is to march and play music, not to catch the ball and turn upfield.
Never was that more apparent than when the back hit the band members large hat and fell harmlessly to the ground.

Impressive arm strength. If he could manage to put one of those in the end zone, the Seminoles might be in business.
Blackman has been forced into action due to the injury to starting quarterback Deondre Francois. He’s performed well enough to “not lose,” but is yet to give the impression that he is ready to put the team on his back.
The Seminoles continue to trail the Wolfpack, and have looked flat on both sides of the ball for the better part of three quarters.
They trail by four points early in the fourth and appear to have few answers on defense.
