Football:

Jim Leavitt now has 6.8 million reasons to not leave Oregon for FSU and he’s taking them.

With his top choice off the board Willie Taggart will now look to others to fill the soon to be vacant defensive coordinator position.

FSU has a bunch of uniform combinations used to excite recruits on official visits but now you might see them in action.

Randy Sanders is the next Head man at East Tennessee State University; good luck coach!

ESPN analyst Booger McFarland had some tough words for Jimbo Fisher:

Josh Sweat almost lost his leg as a High School senior after a devastating knee injury yet only missed a handful of games in his 3-year career at FSU; good luck in the NFL Josh!

Recruiting:

Willie Taggart just wrapped up a recruiting weekend loaded with top prospects just days before tbeginning on Wednesday and ending on Friday.he three-day early Signing Period.

4-star CB target Isaiah Bolden is set to sign on Friday.

4-star RB James Cook, currently committed to UGA, will choose between UGA & FSU on Wednesday.

4-star WR Warren Thompson says he’s deciding in February but it’s not in set in stone.

4-star CB Asante Samuel, Jr. could sign this week.

4-star DE Malcolm, current Oregon commit, was initially wroth with FSU for not offering him but Willie Taggart did his best to assuage those hurt feelings.

3-star WR Antoine Green, a recent FSU decommit, is seeing much better communication from FSU under the Willie Taggart Era.

Basketball:

It was a rough weekend for Florida State’s basketball programs as both the Men’s and the Women’s teams saw their undefeated streaks come to an abrupt halt.

For the men the loss was all about the ball or their inability to take care of it.

For the women they were simply unable to compete with one of the four best teams in the country despite a fast start.

Alumni:

Ronald Darby is flourishing as an eagle:

If Aaron Donald didn’t exist Lamarcus Joyner would be the defensive MVP of the first-place Los Angeles Rams.
