Recruiting

Mike Norvell’s Florida State Seminoles football program offered Walled Lake, Michigan linebacker prospect Aidan Vaughan late Monday night:

Vaughan’s currently committed to Air Force and isn’t ranked on the 247 Sports Composite List, but 247 has him as a 3-star after recently picking up offers from the Louisville Cardinals, Maryland Terrapins, Minnesota Golden Gophers, Syracuse Orange, West Virginia Mountaineers, and Wisconsin Badgers. It’ll be interesting to see if Adam Fuller and the Florida State staff can convince him to visit Tallahassee.

Other LB names to know (as of now) are current LSU Tigers commit DeMario Tolan (Orlando), and Daniel Martin (Marietta, GA).

FSU QB commit Chris Parson got some love Sunday in Nashville when the Tennessee Titans beat the AFC champion Kansas City Chiefs:

FSU won its third straight game with a convincing 59-3 victory over Walt Bell’s Massachusetts Minutemen. The Seminoles now shift their focus to Dabo Swinney’s struggling Clemson Tigers, who are still double-digit favorites in Death Valley this weekend.

Crazy times, huh?!?

The Triple Option crew takes a look back at last weekend’s game and gives a preview of this week’s game, as well:

Tommy Mire was at Tuesday’s practice, and he shared some observations:

Norvell spoke to the media afterward, and he had some extremely lofty praise for starting quarterback Jordan Travis.

How to watch this weekend’s game:

Is Florida State currently a top 50 team? Brian Fremeau’s FEI ratings say so, but they also have the Florida Gators in the top 10, so...

FSU fans like polls, right?

How do y’all feel about the new OT rules (which came to light with the Illinois Fighting Illini’s upset over the Penn State Nittany Lions, which was best described as a children’s bowling contest with all the “gutter balls”)?

The Atlantic Coast Conference is nothing, if not interesting:

FSU is clearly DBU:

Women’s Sports

The women’s soccer team had a rough week on the road, drawing with the North Carolina Tar Heels, before dropping their first game of the season Sunday to the Duke Blue Devils, but the Lady Noles are back in Tally to face the 2nd ranked Virginia Cavaliers, and they’re “whiting out” the Seminole Soccer Complex:
