After testing positive for coronavirus for a second time, legendary FSU head coach Bobby Bowden was hospitalized as a precaution. While his symptoms appear to be mild at this time, our thoughts are with Bowden and his family.
Our well wishes also extend to another pillar of the FSU community, as President John Thrasher and his wife, Jean, both tested positive for coronavirus.
Back on the practice fields, FSU is preparing for a prime time matchup against no. 5 Notre Dame. We caught up with the Florida State offense, including quarterback Jordan Travis, who touched on the ups and downs and camaraderie of the QB room.
If FSU actually plays this weekend is still up in the air as Notre Dame continues to deal with a coronavirus outbreak. We’ll be monitoring the situation closely this week.
Mike Norvell offered some small, but encouraging, injury updates on some key players.
The ’Noles extended an offer to 2021 Peach State defensive end Ian Matthews, who has seen his recruitment surge in recent weeks.
Stay up to date with all things recruiting in our recruiting thread.
You can also stay in the loop on the performances of current FSU commits and targets as our Tim Scribble compiles the Friday night action from around the country.
A crucial vote for winter sport athletes will take place next week:
A source tells @TheAthletic that the NCAA's Division I Council is likely to discuss and vote next week on whether winter-sport athletes get an extra season of competition (essentially a free year of eligibility) no matter what this year. That's what fall-sport athletes got.— Nicole Auerbach (@NicoleAuerbach) October 6, 2020
FSU pitcher Hunter Perdue looks to be full go headed into the season, further boosting the Seminoles’ rotation:
#FSU RHP Hunter Perdue threw live for the first time today since his TJ surgery last summer. He’s fully ready to go for rest of fall heading into spring. Was going to be a top-3 round pick out of JUCO before the injury. Brings top of the line type stuff to #FSU’s staff.— Brett Nevitt (@brettpn) October 6, 2020

Dalvin Cook is elite even when the ball isn’t in his hands:

But hey, he’s pretty good when he’s toting the rock too:
Any list of top-five players with the ball in their hands that doesn't include Dalvin Cook is wrong pic.twitter.com/N0gad1g1Tg— Ian Hartitz (@Ihartitz) October 6, 2020
