Florida State football, recruiting news: FSU turns the page to Southern Miss

The only way to follow up a 1-0 start is by going 2-0.

FSU’s official home opener is this Saturday night at 8:30PM EST and it’s back to work for the Seminoles.

FSU had an up-and-down practice yesterday but one thing you can’t question is their effort on the practice field.

It wasn’t just moving Jaheim Bell to the backfield; a couple of moves on the offensive line also sparked FSU’s running game.

CBSSports ranks all 133 teams in College Football; you only have to scroll past three names to see FSU.

For selfish reasons I would much prefer the Rose Bowl over the Sugar Bowl should Florida State make the playoff.

It will take a while for advanced metrics like FPI and S&P+ to account for a team with a lot of transfers like Florida State and Colorado.

Last year, it took about three weeks for SP+ to get a read on transfer-heavy USC. I deemed the Trojans, who were coming off of a very poor 2021 season but boasted high-upside newcomers like soon-to-be Heisman winner Caleb Williams and reigning Biletnikoff winner Jordan Addison, to be unprojectable in 2022, and they started out artificially low in SP+. They overachieved projections by an average 16.6 points per game over three games before SP+ found their correct altitude. They underachieved by about 2.8 points per game from there.’

Howard was one of many blue-chip recruits that was in Orlando on Sunday.

Luke Kromenhoek really wanted to be in Orlando this weekend but he did what you expect a future Florida State quarterback to do; put his team first:
