Notes from Mike Norvell call-in show: Week 5

FSU head coach discusses win over JSU, upcoming tilt with Notre Dame

Don Juan Moore

Another Monday, another edition of Inside: Seminole Football, the weekly call-in show with Florida State head coach Mike Norvell. Host Tom Block will interview Norvell live to begin the program, and later in the show there will be live interviews with an assistant coach on the staff and a player on the team.

The program will air locally in Tallahassee on ABC, and you can stream it here.

Florida State (1-2, 0-2 ACC) rebounded on Saturday with a 41-24 victory over Jacksonville State. Perhaps, Norvell will comment on the likelihood of naming redshirt sophomore quarterback Jordan Travis the starter moving forward. Travis led the Noles to all 41 of their points after entering the game Saturday in the second quarter. FSU takes on #5 Notre Dame Saturday night.

If you are unable to watch Norvell, or you would like to follow along and join in on the discussion, I’ll be providing live updates and quotes below in the comments section.

Update: 8:24 PM

It was an offensive-line centric show this evening as Norvell’s interview was followed by offensive line coach Alex Atkins then tackle/guard Devontay Love-Taylor.

Coach Norvell spoke for three segments about the offense, defense, and preparation for Notre Dame. He said while freshman quarterback Tate Rodemaker had some “growing pains” in his first start on Saturday, he “loved the way he prepared last week and he is going to be able to learn from the experience.” Norvell continued to praise Travis, and said that he was honored with “breaking the rock” for his performance Saturday.

Atkins and Norvell both had great things to say about Love-Taylor. Norvell called him “a key piece to the offense”, and Atkins lauded his experience and his affect on the younger lineman.

Then it was Love-Taylor’s turn to speak with Block. He talked about why he came to FSU, playing multiple positions, and the offense as a whole.
