The Michigan players have noticed their opponents enjoying some of the Orange Bowl festivities such as the beach & the water skis but they’re not here for that.

"You always want to have fun, but it's kind of an instant gratification versus delayed gratification type of deal. Do you buckle down during the week and try your hardest to win? Or do you have fun during the week and leave it up to chance a little bit more?"
Early struggles in the secondary are paying dividends now for the Seminoles.

Miami won its first bowl game in a decade, & they did it while one of their players was in the stands!

Top recruits were asked what words do you think of when you hear the name Jimbo Fisher? The results were mostly good.
Florida State exploded in the second half vs Wake Forest to the tune of a 88-72 victory and a 1-0 conference record.
Xavier Rathan-Mayes joined the 1000 point club in the victory over Wake Forest; just like his dad:
Florida State's Xavier Rathan-Mayes and father Tharon Mayes. Only father-son duo in history of ACC to be 1,000-point scorers.— Brandon Champion (@BrandonthaChamp) December 28, 2016
It’s a little early for this kind of prediction but Seth Davis is very high on this year’s Seminole team:
I know it's a home win over a mediocre team but Fla St is on my short list of Final Four sleepers. Athletic, long, oozing with talent.— Seth Davis (@SethDavisHoops) December 29, 2016
