Florida State is back to practice and it seems like quarterback James Blackman is recovering nicely after leaving the Louisville game with a knee injury.

FSU OC Kendal Briles spoke to media ahead of practice and broke down what he saw from Alex Hornibrook and what impressed him about Blackman after he went down.
Once Blackman is fully healthy, the staff will have a decision to make at the position.
Bud and Ingram discussed the quarterback situation at length and gave their thoughts on FSU’s win over UL in the latest Nolecast.
Talented freshman safety Brendan Gant was seen working with edge rushers during Tuesday’s practice. Gant has flashed when he has seen the field this year and he certainly doesn’t shy away from contact.

Miami’s game against Central Michigan produced one of the weirder box scores you’ll ever see:

We tallied your votes for this week’s FanPulse top 25, as well as who you think the most overrated team in the country is—and I couldn’t agree more. It’s Michigan by a large margin.
Speaking of the FanPulse voting, it’s amazing what winning can do to boost fan confidence in a program. Crazy, right?
FSU has gained momentum in the bowl projections. How do we feel about a historic matchup in Yankee Stadium?

Dalvin Cook has a long way to go to be in the same conversation as Adrian Peterson, but this seems like a passing the torch type of moment:

And it seems legendary Eagles running back Brian Westbrook would agree, calling Cook the best running back in the NFL:

Tape doesn’t lie.
Brian Westbrook says Dalvin Cook is the best RB in the league right now

Miami didn’t recruit Devonta Freeman until late in the process, so he went ahead and beat them all three years he was in school, won two ACC titles, and a National Championship:

So he went to FSU and did something about it. pic.twitter.com/uIIo1q3Bo9
