Florida State basketball avenged their season-opening loss with a dominant win over the Pitt Panthers.
Ahead of FSU’s rematch with Pittsburgh, Craig Meyer of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette put out a great article on Leonard Hamilton.
Hamilton himself joined Jim Rome to discuss how good he thinks his squad can be moving forward:
Could two ’Noles be off the board in the first round?

And while Kawhi Leonard is not a ’Nole, FSU great and fellow Powerade guy Odell Haggins, would appreciate this move from the NBA All-Star:

The head coach of Madison County had high praise for FSU linebacker coach Chris Marve:
@Coach_Marve is a star in the making. Will be a HFC sooner than later! Did an outstanding job last night speaking to our team at our banquet. Thank you Coach!— Coach Coe (@ZacBrayLex) February 18, 2020
FSU will host coaching socials throughout the months of March and April, allowing high school coaches to attend practice in the morning and meet with the staff in the evening:
Don't forget Coaches! This is going to be a great event. We are looking forward to attending on the 10th! Come see the uprising of the Noles and Fellowship with the Staff. @Locklyn33 @Coach_Norvell @FSUFootball pic.twitter.com/IcF8zwtMSf— Coach J. Wade (@HCWadeInfiniT) February 18, 2020
Florida State has officially offered a 4-star defensive tackle, Victory Vaka, out of California. Vaka is rated the 15th best DT in the country, but is in the top-5 for coolest name— and, he’s not 2-5.
Our Brett Nevitt reviewed the film from opening weekend, and their is quite a lot to like about some of the newcomers to FSU Baseball’s pitching rotation.
He was also there to cover Florida State’s victory over in-state foe USF in their first midweek matchup on the year.

Former FSU Hoops star and current Minnesota Timberwolve was in Tallahassee for last nights game and he has clearly missed Cimarron dearly:
Super Bowl Champion Nigel Bradham was released by the Philadelphia Eagles:
Eagles are releasing veteran LB Nigel Bradham, who was just informed of Philadelphia’s decision, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) February 18, 2020
Another notable cut, with more ahead in next month.
Bradham has been a mainstay on the Philly defense for the past 4 years, staying relatively healthy until this year when he missed 4 games due to injury. His release is more due to the money it frees up with Bradham scheduled to make $8 million next year. At just 30 years old, the former ’Nole shouldn’t have a problem landing with another squad should he decide to continue playing.
