Between the NCAA, the conferences, the individual schools and their administrators, not to mention the football programs, everyone is scrambling to figure out if football is going to happen this fall. And if so, whether it will be conference-only or not. FSU doesn’t have any normal opener but an ACC-Big12 showdown in Atlanta with West Virginia. The Peach Bowl CEO who runs the game outlines the protocols and options that could allow the two teams to safely play the game. It’s worth your time, as one option could involve swapping out the Mountaineers for an intra-conference opponent.
Meanwhile, the team is just doing what it can — preparing for the season:

Though it doesn’t include private schools, FSU topped the ACC in 2019 fiscal year revenue.
Asante Samuel, Jr. made a former Clemson captain’s top five cornerbacks in the ACC:
Coming from an All-Pro pedigree, it’s no surprise Samuel, Jr. is #good. Will his lack of size impact his game at the next level? For now, it’s enough to enjoy watching him show off his skills.

That’s not all. 6’4 combo-guard Jordan Riley will decide on Friday between Kansas, FSU, Georgetown, St. John’s, and UConn (he may or may not have a committable offer from the ’Noles).

Whatever you do, don’t step on the logo:
Random thought: At FSU we had our big Seminole logo on the floor of our locker room. Unofficially, we were forbidden from stepping on it. Only Bobby Bowden could. And he never did either. Now, whenever I see ANY big logo on a floor..I avoid it. Trained like Pavlov lol #2%— Myron Rolle, MD (@MyronRolle) July 20, 2020
