NCAA Football: North Carolina State at Florida State Melina Vastola-USA TODAY Sports

Football:

The injury report for the Ole Miss game was released; starting LG Kareem Are will be replaced by Derrick Kelly; David Visser wrote a great profile on the redshirt-sophomore about how his versatility provides great depth for the unit. Not listed is starting C Alec Eberle leading many to believe that he will give it a go tonight. Outside of a couple of offensive line question marks the noles exit a very intense camp with their healthy largely intact.

In case you missed it; the TN staff predictions are out with many predicting a hard fought victory.

The Seminoles will wear their home garnet jerseys in Orlando.

As of Sunday Night Vegas has the labor day tilt as FSU -6 with an over Over/Under of 59 1/2.

Jared Shanker profiled Jimbo Fisher’s process on how he built FSU into the elite program that it is today including this amusing quip about how Jimbo responded when he was rebuffed or met with hesitation about changing infrastructure:

Fisher repeatedly heard, "Well, that's not the way we used to do it," when soliciting financial support for his desired changes.

"When I first got here, I said, 'I'm going to throw you out the window if you say that again," Fisher recalls. "I hate that saying. That was good, but now show me why it's still the best way."

Sounds like Kirk Herbstreit doesn’t see a gap between Leonard Fournette and Dalvin Cook.

Some unfortunate news for our rivals as Miami, who is starting three true freshman linebackers, just lost another backer to injury. Florida lost playmaker Dre Massey to a knee injury as well.

Recruiting:

DJ Matthews continues to do ridiculous things on the football field every week:

Alumni:

Former FSU safety Terrence Brooks was cut by the ravens but quickly claimed on the wire by the Eagles.

Former FSU walk-on DB Javien Elliott was signed to the buccaneers practice squad; an incredible journey for the young man; a lot of schools are claiming #DBU but how many of them are putting walk-ons in the league? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
