Football:

Interim head coach Odell Haggins met with the media yesterday. With Thanksgiving between now and a showdown with the Gators Haggins spoke about family and the FSU brand. He also refused to name a starting QB for the game but he did talk about getting healthy, what Jim Leavitt and Mario Edwards, Sr. are bringing to the defensive staff, and about the challenges Gator QB Kyle Trask present.

Updates from FSU’s coaching search — last weekend’s slate of games may have altered the Seminoles’ continued search for its next head coach. FSU also sent out letters to boosters asking them to fund a football ‘Renaissance’.

FSU is targeting a 2020 offensive tackle from Texas (VIP).

FSU soccer advances to the Elite 8 with a tough win over South Florida. They now face a rematch on Friday with a dangerous UCLA squad.

Sue Semrau previews FSU’s game against Florida. The ’Noles will take on the Gators tonight.

The Men’s basketball team is somehow not ranked despite a very good start to the season, including a win over the No. 24 Florida Gators. But if they continue to win the rankings should take care of themselves. They did just that by smoking Chicago State last night with a 57-point win and are now 5-1 on the season. They’re also doing it in amazing fashion:

Really makes you think.

The Men’s swimming and diving team won the Georgia Tech Invite team title for the second time in three years.

Our ’Noles in the NFL is back: Auden Tate bounced back from a scary injury last week, Jameis Winston taketh and giveth at equally absurd rates, and Dustin Hopkins has a game winner, and more. There’s also good news for Derwin James and the Chargers:

It’s the Jonathan Isaac show — is he elite?
