Noles News: Georgia Tech week, baseball starting off strong, volleyball sweeps

The Noles prepare for Georgia Tech at a home.

FLORIDA STATE — The Florida State Seminoles are opening up winter sports alongside football, ending a much needed bye week heading into Georgia Tech prep for their upcoming game this Saturday at home. Baseball closed out its first exhibition under new head coach Link Jarrett, and soccer put one in the win column after a rocky start. Volleyball brought out the broom, and little did you know it, FSU opened up as a 20.5-point favorite in Vegas’ eyes, looking at a program that is in a little bit of a shamble after dropping its head coach.


Back off the bye week, the Seminoles stare down a barrel aimed at the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, who travel to Tallahassee this Saturday. The game is set to kick off at noon and should be an interesting one heading into the back half of the season, with a little uncertainty on the Tech side of the ball regarding quarterback Jeff Sims and a team trying to rally around a former captain who is now head coach.

Throughout this season, there have been a few things going on on the FSU side of things with injuries, personnel, matchups, and playing ranked opponents, but a fully healthy squad should be able to handle the Yellow Jackets and show an overall improvement from last season.

Make sure you head over to Coosh’s Monday night to check out Inside Seminoles Football from 7-8 p.m.


As always, there is a great recruiting discussion going on about prospects, commits, visits, and the who and what is going on behind the scenes in our Florida State Football: OFFICIAL Tribe ‘23 Recruiting and Portal Thread #11. There should be a list of upcoming visitors coming into the mix this week, so be sure to be on the lookout.
