-The Noles will scrimmage today around 2 PM in what will be their second scrimmage of fall camp. I'll be interested in hearing what Coach Fisher has to say after the media can speak to him following the practice.

-Florida State's coaching staff got involved with the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge as four Seminole coaches, including Jimbo Fisher helped raised awareness for this terrible disease. Look out for my video to be posted tomorrow as I accept the challenge to dump ice water on my head (and donate money) to help this great cause. Who should I nominate? Bud, Dustin? All of the Tomahawk Nation community?

-Jameis Winston himself got into the act and participated in the challenge as well

-Corey Clark of the Tallahassee Democrat has a great article on Jameis Winston and QB coach Randy Sanders.

"The one thing he is blessed with, you don't develop, God gave him this – was the vision," Sanders said. "The ability to see. A lot of times he can have his head over here and be looking over here. He's phenomenal that way."

...

"They say one of the things that made Wayne Gretzky such a great hockey player was he could anticipate what was getting ready to happen and could really see the angles," Sanders said. "Jameis has a lot of that ability as a quarterback. He can anticipate what is getting ready to happen. See the angles and know where to throw the ball."

-The Florida Gators got some bad injury news yesterday when it was announced that incoming freshman DT Thomas Holley would miss the entire 2014 season due to a torn labrum in his hip. Holley was a five-star recruit last year for the Gators and was expected to make an impact for the Florida defense this season.

-Jeff Greer of The Courier-Journal lists a few takeaways from Louisville's scrimmage on Saturday.

-Here is a quick preview of 2014 Syracuse Orange done by ESPN's Matt Fortuna.
