Noles News: Florida State finding confidence following win

Turning attention toward North Carolina

NCAA Football: Syracuse at Florida State Melina Myers-USA TODAY Sports


With the weight of a winless season lifted off their shoulders, the Florida State Seminoles sound to be getting their legs back underneath them. At practice on Tuesday, the team churned out a strong effort especially at the skill position groups and it continued after practice when speaking with the media.

Wide receiver Keyshawn Helton and tight end Camren McDonald said the attitude around the facility has been up and it is improving the confidence in their own play.

Head coach Mike Norvell echoed that sentiment but says there are certainly some mistakes that need to be cleaned up.

The question becomes was this a one-week close victory against a similar team or the start of that climb Norvell preaches? Our Triple Option podcast team dove into the film to get you that answer.

You don’t have to watch much film to see the elite level that Derwin James and his fellow Charger Asante Samuel Jr. have played at this season. The two, along with their neighbor Rams CB Jalen Ramsey, have been the most impressive Noles in the Pros this year.
