Football:

So, lets run this down:

First, FSU’s game against Duke this weekend has been canceled due to positive tests and contact tracing at FSU.

That left FSU’s remaining schedule up in the air and TomahawkNation attempted to piece it together — FSU is in a really interesting position where Clemson’s decision to return to Tallahassee or not could have ripple effects throughout the conference.

That’s important, because FSU has lost a couple home games and badly-needed revenue along with it. FSU would be extremely happy to make up a couple games in December.

Mike Norvell’s Call-In Show: We bring you relevant quotes and answers from Norvell’s Q&A last night. Norvell provided more information on the timeline and why the Duke game was canceled, and he seemed confident that FSU would have an opponent on December 12th. There was also some very interesting comments by FSU chief of staff Bruce Warwick.

Pretty objective observation if you ask me:

There’s plenty to talk about in the Recruiting thread as Florida State lost the commitment of a blue-chip quarterback yesterday.
