NCAA Football: Orange Bowl-Michigan vs Florida State Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports


  • 2017 NFL Draft bound Dalvin Cook has had some off the field situations arise while at Florida State, however an NFL agent had apparently started a rumor about Cook, attempting to sabotage his draft stock as Robert Klemko brilliantly writes.

To Villani’s surprise, after the Senior Bowl he started getting calls from scouts and coaches suggesting the opposite. He was told that an agent had started a rumor at the all-star game: Cook was showing up to workouts late—if he came at all—that he’d arrived with alcohol on his breath on occasion, and with unsavory characters from the neighborhood in tow.

  • However, Matt Miller says that scouts still has a big question mark, larger than Oklahoma’s Joe Mixon.

Schedule: vs. Alabama in Atlanta (9/2), vs. Louisiana-Monroe (9/9), vs. Delaware State (11/18), at Florida (11/25)

The opener against Alabama is that rare early season game with a winner-take-all feel, even if the Playoff era has increased the chances for a one-loss team to eventually play for the national championship.


According to a tweet from FSU commitment Kenyatta Watson Jr., he and six other Georgia recruits including five-star LB Owen Pappoe, five-star WR Jashawn Sheffield, five-star DB Jaylen McCollough, four-star OT Wanya Morris (FSU commit), four-star ATH Ronald Thompkins and four-star WR Ramel Keyton will be on the trip.
