'Noles News 12.20.11

Today I have an excellent collection of stories for you. 20, in all. As always, I've read each of these and promise not to bring you junk. Not all of these are about Florida State, but I've always maintained that the readers of this site like reading good articles about football, regardless of the team. And perhaps no news is good news for FSU, considering the Mark Stoops drama and the arrests of the last week.

Oh, and did I mention... ANDROID APP for Tomahawk Nation? Yeah.

Avis Commack and Arrington Jenkins are both currently suspended from team activities. Jimbo has handled the rare arrest during his tenure quite well, deferring to the legal process and preserving the rights of the kids.

Also, feel free to talk recruiting in the recruiting open threads (-----> right sidebar).

A Pre-Recruiting Look At Our 2012 Canes: Part 1 - The 7th Floor

This post will cover the skill positions, and is assuming that all the guys that will be leaving for the draft have already declared their intentions, or of course are seniors and have no choice. As far as I am aware, the last holdout was Ojomo, and that was due to his application for a 6th year, which sadly he was denied. So this list is subject to change, albeit it shouldn't be much different aside from the new kids on campus.

This doesn't seem all that realistic to me, but it's not crazy, I guess.
