Florida State football, recruiting news: Tarvarus Mcfadden a finalist for the Nagurski Award

Awarded to the nation’s best defensive player.

NCAA Football: Florida State at Miami Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports


Tarvarus Mcfadden has been named as one of five finalists for the Bronko Nagurski. He finds himself among the likes of Alabama’s Jonathan Allen & Reuben Foster, Clemson’s Christian Wilkins, and Michigan’s Jabrill Peppers in competition for the award.

McFadden, a 6-2, 198-pound sophomore cornerback from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., leads the country with seven interceptions. He is the first Seminole with seven interceptions since 1997 and is already tied for the fourth highest interception total by an FSU player in a single season. He also chips in 14 tackles (11 unassisted), three tackles for 12 yards in losses and four passes broken up for the Seminoles

Should FSU win out (decent shot) & two ACC teams get into the playoff (far less likely) FSU would have a decent shot at the Orange Bowl; as reflected in this set of Bowl Projections.

It’s all coming full circle for Dalvin Cook as he returns to the venue of his breakout game on the cusp of Breaking Warrick Dunn’s career rushing record.

The College Football Playoff Committee is not using the same standards to evaluate all teams equally.

Speaking of the playoff should it expand to 8 teams? My answer is a strong no; what do you think?
