FSU President Thrasher had an update on the COVID-19 situation:
FSU’s highest priority is to keep our campus community safe. We want to support our employees so they can continue their job functions while being able to care for their families. Employees who can work remotely are encouraged to do so with approval. https://t.co/Wp9r74bApl. pic.twitter.com/mzoibUNO1g— President John Thrasher (@FSUPresThrasher) March 16, 2020
Despite the cloud of COVID-19 hanging over everything, the NFL opened their league year yesterday. It didn’t take long for free agency to heat up, and some former ’Noles made the news —
Derwin James reacted to the Atlanta Falcons cutting RB Devonta Freeman:
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers let Jameis Winston walk into free agency and reportedly offered Tom Brady a massive deal:
Tom Brady and Jameis Winston are 2 of the 8 players to throw for 5,000+ passing yards in a single season. Both could be playing elsewhere. No player has ever thrown for 5,000+ passing yards in a season and went on to play for another team in their career.— James Palmer (@JamesPalmerTV) March 16, 2020
If Brady turns it down, will Winston still sign with the Bucs?
Marvin Wilson reminds us we’re all fans, as he reacts to his Houston Texans trading away a star:
Jaiden Lars-Woodbey was one of six student-athletes recognized among the Torchbearer 100, the highest honor awarded from the Division of Student Affairs:
The Torchbearer 100 recognizes Florida State University’s exceptional undergraduate student leaders and achievers of the current and rising senior class. This honor is intended to celebrate and thank the outstanding few who allowed their passions to exceed the bounds of comfort, whose devotion did not waiver, and who dared to step out into the darkness and light a torch that would lead the way for those to come. It is the magnitude of impact that each of The 100 has made within their own realm of influence that carries on the legacy of student leadership at Florida State.
I am a redshirt sophomore (due to injury).. but I will graduate with my bachelors degree in International affairs this Summer. https://t.co/YjWs4Drahr— ϟ THOR ϟ (@JaidenWoodbey) March 16, 2020
