Football:

Head coach Willie Taggart said that he expected Marvin Wilson and Tamorrion Terry back at practice this week, but who knew it was going to be right away. FSU is getting healthy just in time as Terry and defensive tackles Big Marv and freshman Malcolm Ray were all practicing yesterday.

It was star wide receiver Tamorrion Terry’s first practice of fall camp and he wasted no time going deep:

The team practiced at night under the lights.

The transformation that left tackle Jauan Williams has gone through over the last year is shocking to see, but in a good way:

Can offensive line coach Randy Clements’ even-keeled approach help Williams and the rest of the unit up their game this year?

More misery history from FSU’s offense last season. These stats keep rolling out. But the good news is that FSU’s offense has nowhere to go but up:

It looks like the Miami Hurricanes are going to start freshmen at quarterback, left tackle, and right tackle:

The Canes play the Gators this Saturday. That game might get really ugly — we’re talking defense, punts, and hopefully all the turnovers we can handle.

Speaking of the Canes, FSU offensive coordinator Kendall Briles is not a fan:

Briles is excited about the skill talent the ’Noles have on offense and about the QB competition.

With the hire of Briles, head coach Willie Taggart has been able to take a more CEO-type approach. Yesterday he took advantage of that:

On the other side of the ball, Khalan Laborn looks ready to go as he hurdled defensive back Akeem Dent yesterday.

Recruiting:

FSU WR commit Malachi Wideman is an athletic freak:

I think I sprained my neck and elbow just holding my phone and watching that.

FSU quarterback commit Jeff Sims is about to begin his senior season and is eager to prove himself.

Not only is NFL star and All-Pro safety Derwin James’ pro career beginning to mirror his collegiate one, his injury stems from one in college:

Ouch.
