We barely knew ye — Seminole defensive backs coach T.J. Rushing is reportedly leaving FSU for a similar job at Jimbo Fisher’s Texas A&M after only a month in Tallahassee. Who will Norvell hire to replace Rushing?
Linebackers coach Chris Marve used to be a seventh-grade math teacher, and he believes his background in teaching makes him a better football coach.
In a little bit of opponent scouting, Gators quarterback Feleipe Franks is now former Gators QB Feleipe Franks:
Former Houston QB D’Eriq King was a transfer target while Kendal Briles was still the offensive coordinator at FSU. But after Norvell’s hire, Briles left for Arkansas. Now King is going to...Miami?
Stop me if you've heard this before, but Miami got some grad transfers through the portal. But will it work this time? https://t.co/x1S0okBCg2— Matt Baker (@MBakerTBTimes) January 21, 2020
FSU is also adding some preferred walk-ons:

The Men’s Basketball team now has its highest AP Poll ranking since December of 1972! If you haven’t had a chance to watch this team yet this season, make the time. They are one of the best teams in the country:

And everyone is taking notice:
Devin Vassell was named the ACC’s Co-Player of the Week.
NBA phenom Mfiondu Kabengele had a big performance recently:
In what is surely a coincidence of the universe, two ’Noles will play in the Super Bowl two weeks from now and they both play for the Kansas City Chiefs. So if you needed a team to root for, the universe made it easy.
And, technically they aren’t alumni, but the Marching Chiefs made an open offer to the pro Chiefs:
Hey @Chiefs, if you want the War Chant done right we’re available and just a couple hours up the road.— Marching Chiefs (@FSUChiefs) January 19, 2020
Hit us up.
The (pro) Chiefs fanbase is notoriously bad at the warchant, so having the perfect teachers couldn’t hurt.
