Our schedule preview series continued yesterday with a breakdown of NC State that got at least a few Wolfpack fans mad at us on Twitter.

Tomahawk reader LouC threw together this deep dive on why FSU needs to be proactive this time on college football’s spin on the realignment carousel.

Florida State has added graduate transfer defensive end Marcus Cushnie to its roster, head coach Mike Norvell announced Wednesday. Cushnie, All-Conference at Alabama A&M, helped A&M win the SWAC championship with a perfect 5-0 record in spring of 2021, was ranked second in FCS with 1.75 sacks per game, registered 7.0 sacks in addition to 20 tackles and 7.5 tackles for loss with two quarterback hurries.

From FSU, here’s a release on the list of Noles representing in the Olympics:

More than two dozen athletes and coaches with connections to Florida State University are representing 17 different countries during the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan, which run from July 23 to Aug. 8 after nearly a year delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Twenty-five athletes with FSU ties — 23 alumni and two current student-athletes — are among more than 11,000 Olympians competing during the Games. That’s a record number of athletes with FSU connections in an Olympic year and extends a streak of at least one Seminole competing in the Summer Games since 1972.

The current student-athletes competing in Tokyo are swimmer Izaak Bastian and soccer player Gabby Carle. A rising senior from Nassau, Bahamas, Bastian is representing his home country in the men’s 100-meter and 200-meter breaststroke events. He set FSU records in both events last season.

Carle, a native of Quebec, is a member of the Canadian women’s soccer team. Also a rising senior, she has started every game of her FSU career and helped the Seminoles win the 2018 NCAA title.

On the coaching side, four current FSU coaches and a former student-athlete are on the sidelines in Tokyo. Head Softball Coach Lonni Alameda is serving as the pitching coach for Canada’s softball team and Head Diving Coach John Proctor is working with Team USA. Assistant Beach Volleyball Coach Jason Lochhead is on Team USA’s men’s beach volleyball coaching staff and Assistant Women’s Soccer Coach Morinao Imaizumi is an assistant for Team Japan. Former FSU men’s basketball player Luke Loucks is an assistant coach for the Nigerian men’s squad.
