- Paul Myerberg of USA Today took it upon himself to put together a ranking of every FBS team entering the 2016 season, giving Florida State a favorable spot on the list.
- One current Seminole, wide receiver Travis Rudolph, went viral on social media Tuesday for his kindness while visiting a local school.
- As part of their series about upcoming pro prospects, some of the NFL.com experts contacted scouts and coaches to get intel on how they view FSU running back Dalvin Cook. In the article, Cook draws comparisons to Jamaal Charles and Ray Rice, both of which I think are fair considering his skill set.

- On Tuesday, Ariya Massoudi, sports editor of the FSView, provided an updated capacity for Doak Campbell Stadium after the completion of the Champions Club renovations.
Many have wondered, but Doak Campbell Stadium's new official capacity is 79,560. Was 82,300 before Champions Club construction. #FSU— Ariya Massoudi (@AriyaMassoudi) August 30, 2016

- Miami suffered another setback in its season preparations on Tuesday when junior defensive end Trent Harris went down with a broken hand. If Harris’ injury causes him to miss the Hurricanes’ season opener against Florida A&M, UM’s starting defense would likely include a staggering four freshmen.
- Although it’s not pertinent to FSU, Bud Elliott compiled a fascinating piece on the Nebraska football program’s inability to keep up with the recruiting times and how it has caused the Huskers, once the premier team in the country, to descend into mediocrity.
