Florida State Seminoles basketball head coach Leonard Hamilton is the man who just keeps on trucking, successfully starting recovery from his Achilles injury:

This isn’t as good as when I performed the first verse of Lil Wayne’s “A Milli” as a dramatic reading while Demarcus Christmas, Tyler Holt and Deandre Francois stared me straight in the face:


After a quiet start, FSU baseball came alive in a midweek win vs. Mercer Wednesday. Brett Nevitt’s got you covered in his Three Up, Three Down.

Florida State volleyball will wrap up its regular season with matches against Syracuse on Thursday and Friday at Tully Gym in Tallahassee, with both scheduled at 5 p.m.

Just a time to reflect on being one of the preeminent universities in the country, no big deal:

More than 30 graduate programs at FSU are ranked in the top 25 according to U.S. News & World Report’s 2022 edition of “Best Graduate Schools.”

  • Florida State’s College of Criminology and Criminal Justice maintained its top 10 status at No. 7 in the nation and among public universities.
  • The College of Business’ MBA specialty in real estate once again ranked in the top 10 among public schools at No. 9 and in the top 20 nationwide at No. 17.
  • The College of Medicine tied for No. 13 in diversity with 26 percent of students identifying as an underrepresented minority. The college also came in at No. 42 in primary-care production, with Nova Southeastern being the only Florida school producing more primary-care physicians during the time period measured.
  • FSU’s Library and Information Studies program, housed in the College of Communication and Information’s School of Information, placed No. 11 nationally and No. 10 among public universities.
  • FSU’s School Library Media specialty maintained its No. 1 status, and Services for Children & Youth rose four spots to No. 3 in the nation.
  • The College of Law rose two spots to No. 48 in the nation and No. 24 among public universities.
  • The FAMU-FSU College of Engineering also made a significant improvement in this year’s U.S. News graduate rankings, moving up to No. 98 among all engineering graduate schools nationally. It marked the first time the college has ranked in the Top 100 for engineering graduate degrees.

FSU also celebrated its annual FSU Day at the Florida Capitol virtually this year, flexing on social:

For the second time, an FSU beach volleyball duo earned CCSA Pair of the Week Honors with Sara Putt and Cassie Anderson getting the title after going 4-0 over the weekend with all four wins against ranked teams.

Who wants to beat down on some nerd college kids (aka get straight-up whooped by some Gen X’ers) for homecoming?

Florida State track and field redshirt senior Shanice Love was named ACC Women’s Co-Field Performer of the Week after a discus throw of 58.13m meters (190-8) at the FSU Relays this past weekend — Love is ranked no. 2 in discus throwing.

  • $28

“And these guys are very proud of the junkyard dog. And our junkyard dog’s name is Stopper, by the way. I have to introduce you to him. He’s the mascot. We’re going to have some t-shirts, and we’re going to give them to our local media so you can walk around with the junkyard dog philosophy.”

The shirt doesn’t have Stopper on it — but close enough
