Letter to The Osceola members

For nearly 30 years, The Osceola has been a pioneer in college team coverage, building one of the largest brands to cover Florida State University athletics. During that time, we have built one of the largest team publications in the country, the largest FSU team website and a thriving community with thousands of subscribers.
Since 1982, we have maintained a commitment to:

1. Provide Florida State fans the most up-to-date news and expert analysis
2. Take Seminole fans inside the locker room with in-depth features about FSU players, coaches and administrators
3. Capture stunning images from Seminole events
4. Give users the most in-depth recruiting coverage
5. And for the past nine years, help maintain the most vibrant Florida State sports message board community on the Internet.

The Osceola has grown into one of the most innovative and diverse media brands covering Florida State athletics.

We’ve been a member of the network for much of our existence online, and we now continue this journey with a new partner – 247Sports. While our network partner is changing, our commitment to be the best Florida State team site is not – not now, and not ever.
