With the SEC in a bit of a downswing this season, there’s been a clamor to determine which conference is tops in 2023.
The Pac-12 is getting plenty of love in what is likely its last-ever season, fielding four of the current top ten teams (No. 7 Washington, No. 8 USC, No. 9 Oregon, No. 10 Utah) the Big Ten has the usual power trio of Ohio State, Michigan and Penn State and the ACC has six unbeaten teams, four of whom are ranked (No. 5 FSU, No. 15 UNC, No. 17 Duke, No. 18 Miami).
Who ya got?
You know one conversation virtually nobody is having? The ACC is the only conference with six undefeated teams. The last time that happened through four weeks? The SEC in 2012. Heck of a start for a league many thought was on its last legs a month ago https://t.co/3pcNRX3JSX— Andrea Adelson (@aadelsonESPN) September 26, 2023
We have 27 unbeatens left. (It'll be about 21 at the end of Week 5.) I ranked them. And I'm just saying, there aren't that many good seats left on the Husky bandwagon...https://t.co/saP4hoM7O7— Bill Connelly (@ESPN_BillC) September 26, 2023
In a continuation of our offseason series we’re having you, dear Tomahawk Nation reader, vote on the best all-time Seminoles on each side of the ball to determine the Mount Rushmore of former Florida State offensive and defensive players.
Yesterday, we got our first batch — offense, which saw Charlie Ward, Peter Warrick, Warrick Dunn and Dalvin Cook earn spots.
FSU made its way back out onto the practice field on Tuesday, getting in a light but intense day of work as it looks to get healthy over the bye.
Even during a bye week, the Seminoles came out with their usual energy and intensity in their first action since defeating Clemson on Saturday. There were no black jerseys on the scout team today, and practice finished earlier than usual; even with the importance of keeping focus and energy high, this week is essential for the Seminoles to get the chance to rest up and get their legs back underneath them.
A visibly pleased Norvell met with the media after saying he felt today “was a really good day...proud of players... they worked at a really high level.” It would be easy for the Seminoles to loaf through the first practice after an emotional win, but that word is not in the team dictionary.

Florida State is one of only two teams this season (along with Colorado) to be featured in games earning over six million TV viewers. The Seminoles’ 45-24 season-opening win over the now-No. 13 LSU Tigers was the second-most watched Sunday Labor Day game on record and the highest watched Sunday opener in seven years, snagging eyeballs from 9.1 million households while last week’s 31-24 overtime win over Clemson was the third-highest viewed game of a packed Week 4 slate (behind Colorado-Oregon, Ohio State-Notre Dame), earning 6.71 million viewers — a number three times the next-highest on the noon slate (Auburn-Texas A&M, 2.18 million) according to Sports Media Watch.
He’s overshadowed in media by big names on @FSUFootball roster (QB Travis, DE Verse, RB Benson, WR Wilson) and other portal studs (TE Bell, WR Coleman) but Western Michigan transfer DT Braden Fiske has been huge addition to this loaded Seminoles squad.— Jim Nagy (@JimNagy_SB) September 26, 2023

Scouts differ on his future NFL role, but his ball skills, physicality, and finishing vertically and in-traffic are undeniable

Along with the Seminoles’ schedule announcement, FSU put out a nice feature on Darin Green Jr. as he enters his final year in Tallahassee:
“It came quick,” Green said. “I have played with some great veteran players who have prepared me to be a leader. I have taken that leadership role and I am going to do whatever it takes to get to the NCAA Tournament.”
Green is not just a player; he is a record-setter in the making.
“Scoring and records are just something that come with playing the right way,” said the second-year Seminole who transferred from UCF. “All good outcomes come with the way we play. With each guy on our team buying into the system the wins will take care of themselves.”
Florida State women’s basketball also learned its full 2023-24 slate:
The Seminoles, ranked 15th in ESPNW’s most updated way-too-early-poll, host nine home games in conference play.
“Once again, the ACC is loaded with so many great programs. It’s the ultimate test in conference play in women’s college basketball,” FSU Head Coach Brooke Wyckoff said. “Every game presents a challenge and provides the preparation needed for NCAA postseason play. At the same time, each ACC game presents an opportunity for our team to really measure itself throughout the season.”
Sophomore guard Ta’Niya Latson leads a group of six returnees ready to build on last season’s 10th consecutive run to the NCAA Tournament, where the Seminoles finished 23-10 overall and 12-6 in ACC play. FSU spent some extra time together this offseason with its Foreign Tour trip to Greece and Croatia. Latson returns as the consensus national freshman of the year last season, becoming the first ACC freshman ever to lead the league in scoring at 21.3 points per game.

Yolanda Rankin, associate professor in the School of Information, has been awarded the largest National Science Foundation CAREER grant in FSU history and the first NSF CAREER grant for the College of Communication and Information:
CAREER Awards are NSF’s most prestigious recognition of early career faculty who serve as role models in education and lead research advancement in their departments.
Rankin’s research works toward ensuring more Black women are not only interested in pursuing degrees in the computing field, but also graduate with their degrees in that field. She specifically uses Black feminist epistemologies, or Black women’s ways of knowing as a valid framework for understanding the world, in her research regarding who designs technology, who gets access to technology and for advancing the representation and retention of Black women in computing.
This funding will not only help Rankin in her research but will also give numerous opportunities to underrepresented students to learn more about the various paths in the world of computing.
