The scheduled Florida State football home opener vs. ULM on Saturday will no longer be played due to Hurricane Irma.

State and university officials have made the decision to close the university beginning Friday through Monday, due to Hurricane Irma. This includes canceling Saturday’s match-up between the Seminoles and the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks.

After suffering a season-ending patellar tendon injury, Florida State QB Deondre Francois has come out of surgery successfully. He took to Instagram earlier this week to share a note with Seminoles fans.

The Associated Press released a match-up review for this week’s game versus Louisiana-Monroe, including what’s at stake for the Seminoles.

Francois’ injury leaves the Seminoles needing to start a true freshman at QB and here is a full breakdown on how that happened.

We provided an updated summary of Jimbo Fisher’s injury report for what was planned to be the Seminoles week 2 game.


The Seminoles recently extended an offered to offensive guard Caedan Wallace from Hun School in Princeton, New Jersey. According to 247Sports Composite Ranking, Wallace is ranked the No. 157 overall prospect for the class of 2019, No. 6 in the state of New Jersey and No. 7 at his position.

Although this week’s game is still being played, Hurricane Irma is greatly affecting commitment announcements all around. 247Sports offers a full update on commitment dates for Florida State recruits.


Per ESPN’s Adam Scheffer, Sebastian Janikowski and the Oakland Raiders have finally settled contract disputes.

Looking ahead to this basketball season, Sport’s Illustrated offered their take on the Seminole’s newest top-flight recruit, M.J. Walker. After losing Dwayne Bacon and Jonathan Isaac to the NBA, Walker looks to make an immediate impact this season.

With a sturdy frame that will facilitate the adjustment to bigger, stronger defenders, Walker should hit the ground running as a basket-attacking, wing-scoring threat. He’ll have help on the perimeter from players like guards C.J. Walker, Trent Forrest and Terrance Mann.
