FSU continues to recruit the peach state hard

James Blackman is entering his fourth year in Tallahassee and the redshirt junior is learning his fourth offense in four years but there’s reason to believe that 2020 will be much better for Blackman than 2019; that reason is Mike Norvell.

But first-year coach Mike Norvell is an offensive wizard who has gotten the most out of his quarterbacks no matter where he’s coached. Blackman has a superstar outside in Tamorrion Terry, an offensive line that returns three starters and a system that has proven to be effective. Bold prediction: Blackman will go north of 3,000 yards passing in 2020.

Terry isn’t the only name to look for; with Keyshawn Helton returning from injury and Jordan Young getting his second year under Dugans things are looking up at the wide receiver position.

Governor McMaster has made it clear; if the coronavirus continues to rise in South Carolina there will be no football in the state.

Six years Northwestern’s football team tried to unionize; it might be time to try again.

Happy belated birthday Coach Atkins:

This has to change:


FSU has offered 2022 Georgia offensive tackle Elijah Pritchett.

Matthew Cleveland might be a future Seminole:

Between him and current commit Bryce Mcgowens FSU could have some certified freaks on the wing:

2023 defensive tackle Sydir Mitchell out New Jersey has been offered by FSU; the rising sophomore already has four Power five offers.


EJ Manuel had some kind words about Mike Norvell during a Packer and Durham appearance on Friday.

EJ has done well for the ACC Network so far; hopefully comcast and the ACC will get something done so more of us can see it.
