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.
