Part of the appeal of Willie Taggart as the new coach at Florida State
is that as a younger, more energetic man he’ll have an easier time to relate with players on the recruiting trail.
Taggart shows off just how hip he is on his Twitter account regularly by tweeting out lyrics to his hip-hop songs that
are somehow relevant to his day and often uses them to express excitement about recent recruiting news that he’s prohibited
from talking about per NCAA rules.
However, not everybody knows or understands hip-hop, which leads to some absolutely hysterical exchanges with fans. For
example, on Tuesday, Taggart recapped a great call with a recruit by quoting Kodak Black’s “Tunnel Vision”
and one fan took the lyrics as literally as possible.
Bless Kathy Mathis’ heart if she’s ever been within a mile on her radio dial of a station that might even consider
playing Kodak Black, she probably wouldn’t know what to do with herself. And without any context it’s easy to
see how she might interpret Taggart’s tweet to mean that a mother had coaxed their son into playing for Florida State.
However, (we think) Taggart is simply referencing the tunnel vision aspect of the song in that the Seminoles remain laser-focused
on getting back to the top. Then again, we could be wrong, so what do you say we do the Internet a favor and make FSU fans
who don’t listen to hip-hop interpreting Willie Taggart tweets with lyrics literally a thing?
