Jarvis Brownlee Jr, who didn’t make any All-ACC teams, is using it as a goal for next year:

It’s once again the time of year where Clemson’s Brent Venables’ name is on the shortlist for big-name coaching jobs just for the long-time defensive coordinator to inform the Tigers he’ll be returning:

Leonard Hamilton earned a well-deserved nomination to the Naismith Memorial basketball Hall of Fame.
Our own Mr. Rogner took a look inside the box score and what contributed to an off night for FSU Hoops.
As the Seminoles get a welcomed break before their bout with Clemson, Leonard Hamilton, Balsa Koprivica, and Anthony Polite reflected on the team’s performance in their win over Gardner-Webb.

An unprecedented year, extra eligibility, and an unprecedented amount of players in the transfer portal could leave hundreds of players with nowhere to go:
The count of players who entered the NCAA transfer portal today is 40. For the year, there are more than 850. As it continues to fill, I hope players, parents and coaches realize the roster squeeze that's already arrived thanks to the 25-person "hard cap." https://t.co/zBR4DPc2Rm— Pete Thamel (@PeteThamel) December 22, 2020
With the season over, FSU has switched its focus to fining the recruiting class strong and you can keep up with all things Tribe 21 in our recruiting thread.
The future continues to look bright for the ever-positive Jon Isaac, who recently signed a 4-year $80 million dollar extension with the Magic:

After finally breaking out over the past few games, former FSU running back Cam Akers has unfortunately been sidelined with a high ankle sprain. The tricky injury is expected to keep him out at least through next week. Here’s hoping the rookie running back can return to form for his team by the playoffs:
Rams RB Cam Akers has a high ankle sprain, Sean McVay says, which will cause him to miss this next game, at least.— Lindsey Thiry (@LindseyThiry) December 22, 2020
Graham Gano has been one of the best kickers in the NFL this season:
