Football:

Former Louisville transfer quarterback Jordan Travis is finally and immediately eligible as the NCAA finally approved Travis’ hardship waiver. Finally.

With Big Marvin Wilson sidelined with an injury, the other defensive tackles are stepping up. Would you expect anything less from a unit coached by Odell Haggins? Speaking of, Robert Cooper is feeling the difference that his weight loss makes.

Defensive coordinator Harlon Barnett is focused on showcasing the unit’s versatility and moving defenders around in different roles.

Yesterday Willie Taggart gave some injury updates.

Offensive line coach Randy Clements is busy teaching, but also taking baby steps to instill his OL with confidence.

No wonder, then, that practice sessions feel a little different for FSU’s linemen.

They tend to be positive and informative, with every drill working in concert to build toward something.

And, every once in a while, the linemen might even have some fun.

“It’s awesome,” said sophomore Brady Scott, a six-game starter at guard and tackle a year ago. “It’s so much better. When you’re having fun, you don’t really think (practice) is that bad. You don’t get tired. You’re just having fun. That’s the way it should be.”

The team hit the road and are on their way to IMG Academy:

Coach Pimpleton and Ontaria Wilson shared birthdays yesterday:

Despite most other programs having 50+ year head starts on Florida State, the ’Noles still rank 8th all-time in average S&P+ rating:

But when comparing programs just since 1983, one stands above the rest:

Which is why it’s all the more annoying when Sports Illustrated doesn’t give FSU its due when ranking the best programs of all time.

The Miami Hurricanes have named redshirt freshman Jarren Williams as their new starting quarterback:

Williams beat out former starter N’Kosi Perry and hyped transfer Tate Martell, both redshirt sophomores. The Hurricanes open the season August 24th against the Florida Gators.

Other Sports:

USWNT general manager Kate Markgraf has settled on four final candidates to be the US Team’s new head coach, and FSU’s Mark Krikorian is one of them.

Alumni:

The Miami Dolphins have signed former FSU linebacker Terrance Smith.
