Name, Image and Likeness
The NCAA made things “official” yesterday, releasing an interim set of rules and guidance on all athletes (including potential ones still in high school) receiving compensation for their name, image and likeness. Florida officially kicked off its start to the NIL era at midnight, with FSU tight end Camm McDonald being one of the first to take advantage:
Florida State Seminoles football has the No. 3 recruiting class in the country — how did FSU get to this point? What’s the next few months look like for the Seminoles? In the latest State of Recruiting piece, NoleThruandThru breaks down #Tribe22 so far.

Feels like recruits are rarely being told no on visits….I’d skip uniform dress up and go all out.— Cole Cubelic (@colecubelic) June 30, 2021
I’m going to Tallahassee, demanding to ride Renegade & slam that flaming spear on the 50.
What sacrilege CFB tradition would you attempt to take part in as a recruit?
As always, check out Tomahawk Nation’s Florida State Seminoles football recruiting for more discussion.

Florida State University Associate Professor of Physics Hanwei Gao and FSU Professor of Physics Efstratios Manousakis have received a $483,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to investigate the underlying physics of halide perovskites, a hybrid organic-inorganic compound.
They plan to zero in on the quantum effects in halide perovskites, particularly the potential to use it as a semiconductor, with the end goal is to develop a new type of semiconductor superlattice, which enables unusual electrical properties that one would not observe in naturally formed, conventional semiconductors.
