All good things must come to an end, and despite it’s immense popularity among fans over the age of 40, the turnover backpack will no longer be present on the FSU sideline. Head Coach Willie Taggart informed the Seminole faithful of the bag’s passing while discussing the turnover reward on former FSU QB Danny Kanell’s podcast.
As we discussed in yesterday’s Nole News, FSU is getting healthy at the right time and they had two more players return to practice yesterday in Joshua Kaindoh and Levonta Taylor:

College football returns this weekend as Florida and Miami battle it out in Orlando. We know its football, but it will still be tough to watch for ’Noles fans, so here’s something to root for:
A piece by Gentry Estes in the Louisville Courier-Journal covers the drastic change in recruiting spending across college football over the past 5 years. FSU’s spending has ballooned 271.4% over that time frame. The school’s total recruiting spending in 2018 came out to $1,581,347. While that number is one of the highest in the nation, it pales in comparison to the likes of Alabama and Georgia.
Florida State safety commit Jadarius Green-McKnight was named the top recruit in southwest Florida by News-Press. The site profiled the senior leader of Dunbar high school and talked about his unwavering commitment to the Seminoles among other things.
Football is so, so, close and the Marching Chiefs performed their first “full band” version of the fight song this season.:
