1,008. That’s the number of yards Dalvin Cook rushed for his freshman year; could Cam Akers break it?

Perhaps the bandwagon is already getting a little too full for rookie Cam Akers, but the mere fact Florida State fans aren't apoplectic over the departure of Dalvin Cook only serves as a reminder of how good the Seminoles' "next big thing" could be.

FSU’s Jonathan Isaac just might be the biggest steal of the draft; he’s No. 1 on ESPN’s analytics draft board.

For a team that many thought were preseason top 3; FSU baseball being among the last four in is not good.
