It seems as if the gamble that Florida State football took with the Saturday Night Live event this past weekend truly paid off. Bud Elliott breaks down the weekend of elite prospects.

SBnation has released the ACC power rankings for 2018. How many teams could compete for a national title?

We take you back to 1989, when LeRoy Butler ended the No. 2 Miami Hurricanes first possession on the game’s first play. The pick made it at No. 35 on our top-100 plays in FSU football history.

According to David Hale, James Blackman was slinging the ball downfield last year.

Recruiting

“Ring, Ring.” Willie Taggart and his crew got another phone call from four-star linebacker Kalen DeLoach on Monday.

The top inside linebacker of the 2019 recruiting class, Nakobe Dean, said he loved FSU this weekend and that it’s his mom favorite choice for the prospect to land. Monday, he gave DeLoach a “thumbs up.”

One five-star defensive lineman announced that FSU is in his top seven.

Alumni

Dalvin Cook is ready to go after tearing his ACL during his rookie season.

Another former Seminole, Auden Tate, is lighting it up at Bengals training camp.

Then there’s Josh Sweat, who appears to be quite the steal in the 2018 draft for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Former FSU student-athlete James Ramsey has been named to the Mike Martin’s coaching staff, and everyone is showing love.
