Michael Irvin Jr. out 4 months after knee surgery for UM, leaving Canes with just 3 scholarship tight ends - Freshmen Jordan and Mallory, plus Polendey. Depth big concern, even with high regard for 2 freshmen.— Barry Jackson (@flasportsbuzz) August 8, 2018
Who remembers when Peter Warrick single-handedly destroyed the Tigers in Death Valley in 1997? The most electrifying of his three touchdowns made it as No. 26 on our countdown of the top-100 plays in Florida State football history.
