Like Ricky Bobby, Kendal Briles still wants to go fast. FSU’s OC said Tuesday that Virginia’s possession based offense won’t influence how he calls the game on Saturday:
Protect a defense with points.— Bud Elliott (@BudElliott3) September 10, 2019
Protect a bad OL with tempo. Slowing down, allowing UVA time to dial up even more complex blitzes will make a bad OL look awful. https://t.co/7z1iHkG8by
Bud Elliot released his weekly college football picks and he likes Virginia -7 vs. Florida State.
ESPN compiled a list of the 150 greatest college football teams and 1999 FSU just misses the top 10, while the 2013, 1993, and 1988 teams come in at no. 29, no.73, and no. 88.
Willie Taggart has made his mistakes—he’s also experienced some misfortunes so laughable that sometimes it feels like he might be in a real life sitcom.
Florida State’s defense has been alarmingly bad. What does DC Harlon Barnett need to do to set the defense right?
Kill them with flattery? The newest FanPulse top 25 is out and you all actually bumped up the Gators four spots.
All but two national writers still see FSU making it to the post season. How does Shreveport sound?
Loser leaves town?
College football needs flex scheduling so we can just see Tennessee vs FSU in a random game next week— Steve Palazzolo (@PFF_Steve) September 8, 2019
Some great recruiting news in one of the sports FSU is actually good at came down with Leonard Hamilton landing high profile JUCO wing Sardaar Calhoun:
When you think Myron Rolle can’t be any more of a model citizen, he announces that he will be heading to his homeland of the Bahamas to help provide medical care to those suffering the the wake of Hurricane Dorian:
I am at the best neurosurgery residency in the US! My Chairman, faculty, APPs and fellow residents have allowed me to serve as a member of our MGH Global Disaster Response Team to give quality medical care to my homeland - the Bahamas. Excited and poised to make an impact! #2%— Myron Rolle, MD (@MyronRolle) September 10, 2019
FSU emergency management and FSU Geography spent four days assessing areas impacted by Hurricane Dorian, determining the areas with the most need:
Last week, the @CDRP_FSU UAS team spent 4 days in the field assessing damage & unmet needs in communities impacted by #HurricaneDorian. @FSU_Geography also provided maps helping the team prepare for areas in need of immediate attention. We are proud of this hard-working crew! pic.twitter.com/0wNeM0MYcm— FSU Social Sciences and Public Policy (@FSUCOSS) September 10, 2019
Kalisa Villafana will soon become the first Black women to obtain a doctoral degree in nuclear physics at FSU.
