Football:

Florida State had its final practice of preseason camp this weekend; and it is officially game week in Tallahassee. With an intense camp now finished the Seminoles turn their full attention to Ole Miss being only seven days away from the Labor Day tilt with the Rebels.

Coach Fisher officially named Deondre Francois as the starter for Ole Miss; playfully chastising those whom needed confirmation from him on the subject.

Sean Maguire showed off his wolverine-like healing abilities; returning much earlier than expected from his foot surgery; QB depth suddenly doesn’t seem so dire anymore.

In case you missed it, the ACC Digital Network profiled, Heisman contender, Dalvin Cook in a very well-done feature; and Josh Sweat gave this hilarious interview including topics such as the aforementioned Heisman contender being untouchable; Hopefully Dalvin remains untouchable once the games start.

Bad news in Coral Gables as Miami dismissed two defensive two starters due to their connection with a luxury car rental service. Their best linebacker and best pass rusher; they’ll be tough to replace for Miami.

Recruiting:

The best slot WR in the country is DJ Matthews and he’s committed to Florida State; here’s a sneak peek at what he did yesterday afternoon.

Other Sports:

FSU checks in at No. 25 in Athlon’s preseason top 25. The magazine had this to say about the Noles.

Florida State: There's too much talent for Florida State not to be at least in the mix for an NCAA Tournament bid. Jonathan Isaac could be a one-and-done player,a nd Dwayne Bacon is destined for the NBA, too.

FSU Women’s soccer continued it’s winning ways with a 3-0 victory at Middle Tennessee State.

Alumni:

Jameis was on fire in his third preseason outing of the year, going for 259 yards and 2 TDs in one half of play. He also did this:

And Roberto Aguayo, his teammate with the kicking woes? He went 6 for 6 on the night taking a strong step towards ending his rocky start.

Former Seminole and now professional Golfer, Brooks Koepka, qualified for the U.S. Ryder Cup Team; the former Seminole is enjoying his best season as a professional.

Former Seminole baseball player Stephen Cardullo teaches us a lesson in perseverance. He was a walk-on, then he was an all-american and a 24th round draft pick, then he spent four years in independent ball after being released from the Diamondbacks until the Rockies gave him another shot. Now the former Seminole is in the big leagues after being called up this past weekend.
