Football:

  • Junior offensive tackle Rod Johnson was named ACC offensive lineman of the week, after being a part of an offensive line that blocked for Dalvin Cook’s career record 267 yards. It is the second time in his career receiving the honor.
  • Florida State and UNC this weekend may be a high scoring affair, as UNC’s sub-par rush defense will have to withstand Dalvin Cook with FSU’s struggling defensing needing to contain a top ranked North Carolina offense. What do you think the final score will be?

Fisher worked at LSU under Nick Saban and has been a favorite of the power brokers down there, but last winter he passed on LSU’s interest. Would Fisher be more tempted this time around? His buyout is, relatively speaking, manageable at $5 million. Yeah, the division he’s in now -- the ACC Atlantic -- is tougher than it was a just a year ago, thanks to the emergence of Louisville and Clemson's continued to ascent, but I doubt that’s enough to impact his thought process. After all, it’s not like the SEC West is any cakewalk.

  • Bud Elliott answered all questions yesterday that Florida State fans might have about Jimbo Fisher, Florida State and LSU.
  • As expected, the ACC has six-day optioned the start time of the Florida State vs. Miami, meaning a game time announcement will be made this upcoming Sunday. Keep in mind, the Miami Dolphins play a 1 PM EST game the following day.
