Florida State is a repeat top-20 public university in the country:
Florida State University is once again one of the nation’s top 20 public universities! U.S. News & World Report’s 2021 rankings reflect FSU’s ongoing commitment to academic excellence and student success. #BestCollegeshttps://t.co/SzAhwgv1ns— Florida State University (@floridastate) September 14, 2020
The latest episode of Tomahawk Nation’s Seminole Wrap podcast is out on what went wrong against Georgia Tech. This is beyond the two instant reaction podcasts and adds perspective with a little more time between us and the game. Trey Rowland guest stars.
To pair with that is the first post-game edition of our Four Verticals series. Our scheme team dives deep into the game, analyzing gameplans and what happened schematically and with personnel.
Head Coach Mike Norvell had his Week 2 call-in show and discussed the season-opening loss. Norvell will address the media later today, and hopefully we can get an injury update, including on Joshua Kaindoh.
Bookmark our scheme analysis and education stream, as well as our total overview of practice reports and player and coach interviews.
ESPN writer David Hale had some comments and useful perspective about FSU:
Not saying FSU's OL was good. It was not. But QB was hit on 26.4% of dropbacks, which was actually less than Syracuse, Miami, Wake, Duke or Notre Dame and barely worse than UNC. Avg 1.7 yds/rush before contact - again, not great - but better than Clemson, Duke, Cuse or Wake.— ️♈️ (@ADavidHaleJoint) September 14, 2020
I think this is pretty fair. FSU is marginally below avg at QB, fairly below avg at WR, and consistently below avg at OL.— ️♈️ (@ADavidHaleJoint) September 14, 2020
Any 1 of those is survivable. Any 2 is problematic. But all three is just impossible to overcome. https://t.co/TGXjQc3ixH
I say all of this re: FSU for a big reason: Mike Norvell needs YEARS not weeks to fix this (at least in terms of getting FSU to where FSU *should* be).— ️♈️ (@ADavidHaleJoint) September 14, 2020
We all under appreciated how bad it was when Willie took over. Things got worse the next 2 years.
This is a BIG job.
FSU will be playing rival Miami in primetime.
Like that one loyal friend, our Recruiting Thread is always here to keep you up to date with the latest recruiting news.
FSU’s recruiting department sent out “legend” graphics for many former players, which is pretty cool.
Blue-chip 2022 quarterback Nicco Marchiol listed his top 8 and described how FSU is pitching him.
Marcus Allen — no, not that Marcus Allen — picked up an offer from Florida State. Allen is a Class of 2022 cornerback with great size.
2023 defensive tackle prospect Jordan Renaud also received an offer from FSU.
Fun dunk by Matthew Cleveland:
FSU commit Bryce McGowens says goodbye:
