If you ever need motivation to do that project you’ve been putting off, or you just want to run through a wall, give Coach Norvell a listen:
The CLIMB never stops:
Safe to say Tamorrion Terry likes his position coach:
The five best DT groups in college football — Only one can be No. 1 though.
FSU’s altered schedule this year is tough, but the Gators, who ducked FSU, didn’t fare well either:
Looking at the SEC add-on games I think I might have to change my predicted SEC East champ ...the Gators get the brutal addition of Bama and Texas AM...ouch— Danny Kanell (@dannykanell) July 31, 2020
But at least they dodged FSU
WR Warren Thompson is in good spirits as the team took pics/video for the new season:

ESPN’s Bill Connelly wrote about potential foundational changes to college football’s power structure. Will the coronavirus ultimately forever change the way college sports are governed?
Every single crack in college football's infrastructure has been exposed and magnified in a single offseason. There is no way to move forward without doing something about it.https://t.co/jTEWe1f9K0— Bill Connelly (@ESPN_BillC) August 3, 2020
Meanwhile, Steven Godfrey of Banner Society argues that even with temporary all-conference schedules this season, without a monumental change to the sport’s economics cupcake games are here to stay:

This is a bit more expensive than early estimates. But if Tulane can afford it, maybe other smaller schools can too? Player safety is an important question to answer and this seems like a good sign, as long as they can keep it up.
Tulane tested its athletes twice a week this summer.— Ross Dellenger (@RossDellenger) August 3, 2020
It cost the school roughly $100,000 a month. (and not all of its athletes were on campus yet) https://t.co/GpcBspEnIC
I know this doesn’t really count as news but these are the first FSU shoes I actually like. Problem is, I’d be too afraid to get them dirty.
2022 five-star corner Travis Hunter, Jr., reaffirmed his commitment to FSU:
Official scholarship offers went out — could FSU see some new commits soon?
Luke Altmyer reflects on the tragic passing of the young Coach DJ Looney:
Not only someone who recruited me but someone I could always call for advice and a laugh. I’ll always remember being a young kid looking up to DJ as he played ball at @HailStateFB , he never failed to make me smile! Rest In Peace https://t.co/IMNbgLH6fG— Luke Altmyer (@lukealtmyer9) August 2, 2020
The CLIMB doesn’t stop for just the football program:
Seems like FSU’s baseball staff is doing an incredible job scouting quality prospects:
Strong start for Jack Anderson today. Settled in after a bumpy first for 5 innings of one-run ball. Dominant with 8 K’s and pounding the zone, walking just one batter.— Brett (@brettpn) July 30, 2020
Ham looks good in those robes!
"I want to challenge you to work hard and let’s cut the nets down on social injustice and hatred. Let’s cut the nets down on racial inequality ... Let’s raise the banners of respect.

Huff returns to Virginia for a final season:
Perhaps our most jam-packed Alumni update to...date.
Charlie Ward talks about waiting for his chance at QB by punting:
"He told me that if I was going to play quarterback, that I was going to have to wait my turn. What he didn't tell me was that I was going to have to be the my freshman year."— ACC Network (@accnetwork) July 30, 2020

Pretty cool Madden X-Factor graphics:
The Carolina Panthers have cut former FSU kicker Graham Gano, which seems like a mistake:

I think I was at this game:
Florida State's J.D. Drew became the first player in DI baseball history to hit three home runs in one CWS game, doing so against USC on June 6, 1995. He's now one of just three players to accomplish the feat in CWS history.#NCAABaseball | @FSUBaseball pic.twitter.com/JYhLTwF3Qq— NCAA Baseball (@NCAACWS) July 31, 2020
Despite battling injuries, Koepka returned to form for a large part of the weekend, but couldn’t sustain it and fell short of a title:
Despite standing for the anthem Jonathan Isaac was asked and affirmed his commitment to the BLM movement:

After the game the first question he fielded was "Do you believe Black Lives Matter?"
He responded: "Absolutely."

Isaac suffered a devastating knee injury and we wish him a healthy and speedy recovery. All of Nole Nation felt for him:
