Are you ready for some pseudo-Florida State football? FSU will hit the practice field twice this week ahead of hitting Doak Campbell Stadium on Friday for the program’s annual Spring Showcase.

For those who might be expecting a typical spring game, prepare to have those expectations potentially subverted. While there’s been no official word on what this year’s exhibition will look like, in years past, Mike Norvell has opted to retain a typical scrimmage and practice format, pitting offense vs. defense in a variety of situational challenges and intensity-focused drills before shifting to what’s been dubbed the “Grand Finale,” where guest coaches get the chances to call the shots for a brief period of “live” play.

This year, those coaches will be national championship-winning alum: on one side, Heisman Trophy winning-quarterback Charlie Ward and linebacker Henri Crockett from the 1993 championship squad and on the other, running back Karlos Williams and defensive back PJ Williams from the 2013 team.


FSU baseball (13-18. 4-11), which hasn’t won a series since its ACC opener vs. Pitt on March 10-12, will look to get a major confidence boost and steer itself back on-track vs. the Florida Gators on the road on Tuesday.


After secuing the first-ever top five road win in school history with a sweep of the Clemson Tigers, FSU softball (32-7, 11-1)will take the field next for a Wednesday matchup vs. the Jacksonville Dolphins.
