Florida State struggling with injuries to their wide receivers

  • As for the Rick Trickett situation... I think this is mostly nothing.  My take on what might have happened (I am making this up.  This is hypothetical.  I am not asserting this as fact) : Trickett wants a new deal, approaches hardheaded athletic director Randy Spetman about a new contract (Trickett is in year 2 of a 3 year deal running through the 2009 season), Spetman tells him to get in line, Trickett gets annoyed, as he is one of the best in the business, yet being treated like any other coach on the staff (despite being far superior to some of the defensive guys in talent and work ethic).  Spetman tries to show who is boss and play the "he's under contract right now" card.  Bottom Line: Trickett is the 3rd most important coach to this program (Fisher & Coley), and should be shown more respect than he is getting.  If the administration wants to play games, play them with coaches who don't work hard or are constantly entertaining pipe dreams that they might get another head coaching job despite being 60+ years old and widely considered a joke in the coaching community.  That said, he should expect to get his new deal and I don't think he wants to keep moving his family around the country.  Feathers ruffled, but nobody is flying the coop; some even feel an agreement has been reached. 
  • I apologize for relaying the rumor about Patrick Nix and Guz Malzahn.  I should have done a better job of independently checking sources and asking the original source about the origin of the rumor.  Hopefully Nix is still in Miami when the Noles host the Canes in primetime on ESPN, September 5th!  Have no fear, Florida State fans... these opening day games favor the team with the more experienced offense, and that is the Noles.  If possible, I'd want to play Miami in June.
  • On the other hand... Miami QB Robert Marve will not play in the bowl game and will return to Tampa, FL, his hometown.  Rumors of his imminent transfer run rampant. 
  • Yahoo sports reports that From all indications, Bowden will return for another season. But whenever he retires, look for it to happen suddenly. Bowden has said in the past he does not want to announce his retirement before a season or before a game. He wishes to walk away without any fanfare during a game.
  • I've heard the Champs Sports Bowl will have to open the upper deck as the 50,000 tickets have been sold.
