Bruce Feldman with some potentially bad (though unlikely) news:
For those who do not know, Arkansas State is a D1 school. They play in the conference with FIU and Louisiana Monroe (Sun Belt).
It wouldn't shock me if Gran took this job, but I would be fairly surprised. When I head anything about this from the FSU side, I'll let you know.
I have no idea what the offensive line will be for the bowl game. I do know that they've been trying a lot of different combinations. More on that this week.
In other news, Bert Reed is likely out for the bowl game with a severe hamstring injury. Bert's game against Florida was his last. Reed was never special at Florida State, but he did get somewhat better each year. I'll remember him for three plays: His touchdown against N.C. State on Thursday night in 2008, his touchdown against Maryland in 2010, and his score on a reverse against BC in 2010. And I'll remember the drops and the plays where if he could have just made one man miss, he'd have run for days.

Nation's Top QB is Committed to FSU
Great stuff from Adam, as the Alabama media doesn't understand that he's committed to FSU.
8. Florida State – Sure, the Seminoles may have been one of 2011’s most disappointing teams, but there’s too much talent to expect another 8-4 record. Injuries to quarterback EJ Manuel and the receiving corps early in the year slowed the progress of the offense. In order for Florida State to win the ACC, the rushing attack and offensive line has to be better next season. The defense is filled with talented underclassmen and should be one of the best in the nation.
