In case you missed it, we’ve got highlights from FSU’s first scrimmage.
Head coach Mike Norvell also spoke to the media yesterday following Monday’s practice. In addition to other comments you’ll want to hear, Norvell stated this is a critical week for the program as competition begins to separate players on the depth chart.
Running backs Jashaun Corbin and Treshaun Ward, who are both having a good fall camp, were available to the media yesterday. Check out their interviews here.

This is a very interesting piece of trivia, and it begs a question —

The AP’s preseason Top 25 poll was released and FSU isn’t on it — but of the teams that are, who in the top ten do you think will finish unranked? I think Iowa State is the most likely candidate. Cincinnati maybe too but their schedule is pretty soft. What do you think about the rest of the top 25?

The great Bobby Bowden was laid to rest yesterday:
Bobby Bowden's burial is scheduled this morning at 11 CST in Trussville, Alabama, 17 miles NE of Coach's hometown of Birmingham. He will be laid near his mother and father.— Jim Henry (@JimHenryTALLY) August 16, 2021
That had to be an amazing homegoing service. So many former Seminoles could have talked about the impact Coach Bowden had on their lives. That’s the true legacy you want to leave as a coach—not National Championship trophies but championship men and women who’ve grown under you https://t.co/LscFZpQ6dW— Tony Dungy (@TonyDungy) August 16, 2021
