The Triple Option: Breaking down FSU’s big victory over the Duke Blue Devils. It doesn’t matter who you’re playing — putting up 59 points is impressive.
Florida State Practice Notebook: Head coach Mike Norvell and his coordinators addressed the media ahead of Florida State’s regular season finale matchup against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons.
FSU also released their depth chart for the Wake game.
Running back La’Damian Webb, who previously opted out of the rest of the season back on December 2nd and appeared to indicate an intent to return, will indeed leave the FSU football program to transfer to Troy.

It’s funny cause it’s true, but FSU’s offensive line has come a long way and might be one of the offense’s strengths next season. Meanwhile, Washington can’t play in the Pac12 title game due to a covid breakout, so Oregon will take their place:
So what? Florida State played two whole seasons like this. https://t.co/lolrS2ouYx— ️♈️ (@ADavidHaleJoint) December 14, 2020

Will FSU actually play in a bowl game this season? Play another non-conference game? Or follow other programs and let the kids go home?
With bowls being cancelled and conferences losing tie-ins, NCAA is going to allow teams to make up their own game to play after Dec. 19. pic.twitter.com/zC7uR2a52F— Bryan Fischer (@BryanDFischer) December 14, 2020

Patrick Williams has NBA star written all over him, and we hope he is able to reach his potential:
Patrick Williams has already improved a ton since leaving #FSU in March. Part of why he was drafted so high was that growth potential. Will be fun to watch him turn into a star for the Bulls. Gets better every day. https://t.co/UCfuLrL7lI— Ariya Massoudi (@AriyaMassoudi) December 14, 2020
