Football:

In a practice that Jimbo Fisher called largely average Da’Vante Phillips returned from a bone bruise and shined. Coach Fisher praised his route-running, toughness, and ability to make contested catches; attributes that will be very useful to a young quarterback like Francois. In offensive line news with backup center, Corey Martinez, missing time with an MCL injury Florida State was fortunate enough to get starting center, Alec Eberle, back from a concussion.

In case you missed it, we previewed an absolutely loaded Florida State secondary with 20 viable combinations of talent & athleticism. It seems almost unfathomable that you could lose a talent like Jalen Ramsey and improve as a unit but this group just may do it.

Baseball legend Darryl Strawberry was on campus today to share his incredible story about finding a purpose in life with the team.

NFL.com released its top 16 Heisman Candidates with Dalvin Cook checking in at No. 5.

The most talented rusher in the ACC, Cook averaged 7.4 yards per rush last year and largely carried the Seminoles' offense. Defenses will focus on limiting him, but his ability to consistently make the first tackler miss will lead to big plays anyway. His best three chances for a "Heisman statement" game: Ole Miss to open the season, Clemson on Oct. 29, and Florida on Nov. 26.

How high do you think Dalvin should be? Fifth is a little low for my taste.

Kirk Herbstreit released his annual Herbie Awards with Derwin James taking home the Herbie for Ultimate Hybrid.

ESPN wrote about offensive line coach, Rick Trickett today in a profile well worth the read.

Every football coach will tell you that the biggest game on the schedule is the next game but the truth is it’s the Clemson game; with that in mind it would be a good idea to keep tabs on them. Yesterday ShakinTheSouthland previewed their safety position.

Stewart Mandel answered the question of ‘How worried should Nole fans be about the QB position?’ His gist? Not much.

Recruiting:

Consensus top 100 safety recruit Cyrus Fagan, committed to FSU, is shutting down his recruitment saying he will only take an official visit to FSU. Here’s what he had to say about his most recent visit to FSU.

In what was a wild day of news for former Seminole and Rimington Award Winner, Bryan Stork, he was traded to the Washington Redskins for a conditional pick.

PFF graded all thirty-one draft picks in the first preseason outings and Jalen Ramsey had a strong showing, particularly vs the run.
