It has been an interesting week for the Seminole faithful. Sod games to soccer, Noles in the Pro’s, and basketball season rounding the corner—there has been a little something for everyone in the world of FSU sports.

Football

The Florida State Seminoles traveled to Chapel Hill last Saturday as heavy underdogs (three scores at one point) for the first time since 2009 when quarterback Christian Ponder led them to a 30-27 victory at Kenan Stadium. Lightning seemed to strike twice with quarterback Jordan Travis at the helm and the Tribe added some well-deserved landscaping to their sod cemetery, returning home following a 35-25 victory on the road.

Although the botanist ball thrower got the honors of bringing home some Carolina turf, defensive back Jarrian Jones earned his opportunity on Saturday to “smash the rock.”

*Nice pants, Mike.

Florida State heads into a bye week looking to face short-tenured, former FSU offensive coordinator Walt Bell and the University of Massachusetts Minutemen on the 23rd of October.

Recruiting

To go into all the intricacies about Florida State recruiting, the ups and downs, commits and de-commits, I wouldn't do it justice. So head on over to the Tribe ‘22 recruiting thread and jump in the comments to chat with Tomahawk Nation’s own recruiting experts NoleThruandThru, Joshua Pick, and Tim Scribble to discuss the latest.

Basketball

Hoops are among us and on November 10th, men’s basketball takes on the Penn Quakers to kick off the season. Putting in the work in the off-season, they hope to continue their “New Blood” tradition following a 26-5 record last year.

On the women’s side of things, it seems the Seminoles have got a good one in freshman Makayla Timpson.

All sports

The number one ranked lady ‘Noles took down the Syracuse Orange in soccer on Friday outscoring them five to nothing, and Miami four to one on Sunday. They expect to continue their 13-0 winning streak and are set to travel to Blacksburg, VA to face the Virginia Tech Hokies this Friday at 5 p.m. ET.

Women’s volleyball got a victory Sunday against the Duke Blue Devils (three scores to one) for the 10th time in a row and are set to take on Virginia at home this Saturday.
