Spring Game Preview
For the first time in awhile, it feels like Florida State is building. The Seminoles come into the spring game with several position groups that have relatively few question marks. But our attention will be on the spots where question marks abound. Announcement: My first...

Norvell's Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day and 17th Ranked recruiting Class
It was an Early Signing Day that will be remembered for a long time in Tallahassee, and not for good reasons. It’s a good class, but the gap between what it is and what it could have been is enormous. Announcement: My first book, The...
The Best FSU Football Podcast
This remains the absolute best FSU podcast with regard to the football team. The number of episodes has been on the lean side for the past year but always well worth the wait. The host Jason Staples typically has a "glass half full" tone within his critiques of the program. I highly recommend listening to get some excellent football insights from a former Florida State player.
Excellent commentary on the FSU football program
Thank you for putting the proper perspective on the recent events of this past NSD. As a Nole fan and a JSU alum, I was disappointed in the spectacle but I don't fault the kid or Prime in this situation. Your comments on the HBCU perspective were appreciated, unlike a lot of national media I took your opinions on the subject as unbiased. I totally agree with your take that the ceiling still needs to be raised for the FSU program. College Football is about talent acquisition and FSU wet the bed on NSD. With new coaches at Florida and Miami this will only become more difficult. I'm still not sold on Norvell, I understand this is a rebuild but I'm seeing minimal returns at best. I'm not sure we will see FSU return to a championship level with him at the helm. I enjoy your commentary the most from all the Noles podcasts. You present a 360 perspective that covers elements that are sometimes missed by others. When I found out you were a former "NOLE" I gained more appreciation for your takes. Keep up the good work and much success to you with your future endeavors.
Difficult to listen to it today, but appreciate the brutal honesty. Need more difference makers = need better recruiters. Degree of difficulty going up next year due to other hires in-state. Go Noles!
