DeCalon Brooks, Cory Durden, Dennis Briggs and Ricky Aguayo spoke with the media after practice at IMG Academy yesteday, and their interviews can be seen here.
In addition, the Seminoles had some special visitors yesterday — Derrick Brooks and Tony Dungy.
Had a wonderful time visiting the @FSUFootball team today with @DBrooks55 We talked about developing a positive culture of excellence and unity. Derrick talked about how to be a well rounded student and teammate. Thanks Coach Taggart for giving us the opportunity. https://t.co/yrWsJUbMJK— Tony Dungy (@TonyDungy) August 14, 2019
Here’s a good story on defensive lineman Cedric Wood, who is looking to bounce back from an off-the-field injury that included severing a major artery and 10 tendons.
We’re 16 days away from a new Florida State football season, so let’s wallow in the misery of last year as much as we can by realizing even further how putrid the Seminoles’ offense was:
FSU had 253 designed runs vs FBS on 1st and 2nd down. They miraculously averaged 3.36/carry but 848 of their 850 yards came after contact. I literally refreshed my browser and looked again because I figured that couldn’t be right. It might be the craziest stat I’ve ever seen.— That's so David (@ADavidHaleJoint) August 14, 2019
Congratulations, Tampa Bay area and Central Florida and everybody else with Spectrum Cable — you’re part of the ACC Network fam now.
CBS Sports released its all-time All-America Team and Deion Sanders and Sebastian Janikowski were first-teamers, while Fred Biletnikoff, Peter Warrick, Derrick Brooks, Terrell Buckley and Deion Sanders (as a punt returner) were all honorable mentions.
Florida has an opening in its non-conference schedule in 2023, and Miami might be the school to fill it.
FSU announced that it would be selling beer and wine during the 2019 season...except with some certain stipulations.
So you stand in line to get an overpriced beer and can't enjoy it at your seat? You either have to chug (encouraging binge drinking) or miss even more of the game?— Bud Elliott (@BudElliott3) August 14, 2019
How stupid is this?
Also means you cannot make a beer run for your group. Everyone who wants one has to get up. pic.twitter.com/neFnnblQX9
Florida State head coach Leonard Hamilton joined college basketball podcast Marching to Madness to talk the Seminoles’ new roster, Trent Forrest, M.J Walker, FSU’s non-conference schedule and plenty of other fun topics.
