Monday Morning Tomahawks 07.20.09 Your spot for daily 'Nole News

A lot of 'Nole stuff happened this weekend. Inside, you'll find...

  • FSU secured two commitments with their Seminole Showtime camp, and many more recruits were blown away!  More coverage of the event throughout the week.
  • FrankDNole, Fsued, and Rich from Chantrant.com posted the sequel to thier excellent "Best defensive players of all time piece", and the offensive one might be even tougher!
  • TrueCubbie blew everyone out of the water with his preview of the 'Noles incoming basketball players!
  • We had 12 new members sign up and comment over the weekend!  A big TomahawkNation.com welcome to them!
  • I did a radio appearance for KXCA-ESPN 1380am sports radio (Oklahoma).  Should have the radio link for that soon.
  • NoleCC @ Scalpem.com has a big 'Noles gut reaction preview!  Very reasonable.
  • The 'Noles worked conditioning indoors Thursday to avoid the rain.
  • Gobbler Country did a study on ACC turnover rates!
  • We found a nice source for Miami Hurricane Previews
  • Dinich makes multiple predictions on the ACC
  • Decent previews of UNC, Miami, and USF (also, USF's kicker fell 35 feet from a Busch Gardens ride Sunday).  They've been added to the scouting page (left sidebar).

James F. Byrnes Defensive End Corey Miller Commits to the Florida State Seminoles! - Tomahawk Nation

FSU's All-Time #1 Offensive Players By Position - Tomahawk Nation
There were some heated exchanges and debates on our part before we finally agreed on these players.  As a matter of fact, a keyboard was smashed, chairs were thrown, a monitor was slammed to the ground, and a couple of holes were punched through walls during our intense deliberations (OK, maybe I exaggerate a little), but this offensive lineup was much more difficult for us to agree on than the defensive players we posted last week. 

 

Summer Basketball Update: Meet the New Guys - Tomahawk Nation
Basketball recruiting is a skill that Florida State has typically excelled at given the conference in which it plays. Florida State is a football school first, second and third and the rest of the sports fall where they may after that. However, despite not being considered an elite basketball school, recruiting success is as much a part of the story of FSU Basketball history as Bobby Sura is. This year's recruiting class added four nice additions to Leonard Hamilton's squad: Michael Snaer, Terrance Shannon, Bernard James (if he makes it as a walk on) and Jon Kreft.

 

2009 FSU Football Gut Reaction Season Prediction · ScalpEm.com
Practice is just around the corner, and the first game is Labor Day evening, 8pm against the Canes. That ought to be a high scoring affair if history is any indication (ha!). It’s time for my gut reaction preseason predictions, and I’ll go game by game, but before I do, let me put out there that I think FSU has 8 wins in the schedule this season, not including a bowl game (or ACC Championship game, if that works out some way). When chatting casually about it, I usually say UF is a loss (1), GT is a loss (2), UNC on the road on a Thursday night (3) and take your pick of of losing 1 to the rest of the ACC, USF or BYU.

Seminoles continue their summer workouts with eyes on Miami game | tallahassee.com | Tallahassee Democrat
FSU has won three of its past four games against Miami. But there is a bit of uncertainty to a Miami team with two new coordinators, including its fourth defensive coordinator in as many seasons. Reed sees a Miami team with a lot of what he calls raw talent. "We've been watching film on these guys as a unit, and as quarterbacks and receivers," Reed said. "… We're looking for little things that we can do to exploit them. I think it will be a great match-up."
