Florida State football, recruiting news: FSU looking to snap losing streak vs. Demon Deacons

FSU hasn’t beaten Wake since 2018; time for FSU to snap another streak.

Florida State plays Wake tomorrow but in the meantime this whiteboard review will show you exactly how FSU was able to exploit Duke’s stingy defense. Hint: FSU’s tight ends are good.

ABC, WatchESPN, mobile? There’s all sorts of ways to make sure you don’t miss Saturday’s game.

A former FSU coach is on the hot seat and it’s not Willie Taggart.

Jimbo has been living rent-free in this space for some time, sliding on and off the hot seat. For now, it’s another middling season (4-3). In Year 6, Fisher is 43-24 (10-12 in his last 22 games) with no division titles and one New Year’s Six bowl. The cigars at TAMU have 77.562 million reasons to get rid of their coach. Once again, injuries have played a part, but such excuses only go so far. Utah is gunning for a playoff spot with a former walk-on who once worked at Lowe’s at QB. In some ways, don’t blame Fisher, blame the system. To get rid of any one of the 10 highest-paid coaches, it would take an average buyout of $62 million. Preseason rating: 4

Some quality games on this list.

FSU made the number one QB on this list look pedestrian when you consider how ridiculous he’s been against every other team he’s played.

I don’t know which Jordan Travis I’m going to get from week to week. Is he going to drop back and throw nearly 40 times or is he going to scramble around like a madman? Neither one is a bad option, mind you; I’d just like to see a bit more consistency. We saw the best of both versions in the win over Duke. Travis was 27 of 36 for 268 yards and two touchdowns and rushed 10 times for 62 yards and another score. (8)

With the playoff rankings dropping next Tuesday it’s time for resume rankings; if FSU is not one or two in your resume rankings you are doing it wrong.


FSU has upped their chances for a couple of 2025 blue-chippers; four-star OL Max Buchanon and four-star LB TJ Alford.
