    Max, Drake, and Dave each offer one key statistic that hampered FSU in 2021, and explain why changing that statistic is so important to the Seminoles' success in 2022. Dave explains why the ‘Noles, who finished 99th in pass attempts last season, must simply throw the ball more with Jordan Travis (spoiler alert: they finished 3-1 in games where Travis attempted 25+ passes). Drake explains why the Florida State receiving corps needs to be much better at getting separation against man coverage, after ranking outside the top-100 in 2021. And Max explains why FSU's average starting field position, among the bottom 4 nationally last season, must change drastically if the 2022 campaign is to be a success.

    Fall camp at Florida State is already in full swing and the fellas here at Locked on Seminoles, your favorite daily Florida State Seminoles sports podcast, are back in season with their 5 days a week worth of content and kicking things back off with our mandatory mailbag Monday.  Today, Drake and Max are here to answer the questions from you the listener. First off, they discuss the recruiting when it comes to the skill positions and in particular the Quarterback. The guys wrestle with whether or not a blue chip wide receive would come here? Why that may be changing with the visits of players such as Hykeem Williams and Jalen Brown? Most importantly, how integral is AJ Duffy to the future of this program? Next, fellas talk about the recruiting strategy/geographical footprint being employed by Norvell and company. Seemingly striking out on Florida prospects more often than not, what do the fellas think should happen moving forward. Does Max want to employ purely an approach to the regions around Tallahassee extending into Georgia? How do we stretch out into these recurring battlegrounds and what is really going down in Miami with the Hurricanes recent recruiting success? Lastly, the dynamic duo talk about the depth of this team across the board. How finally entering into year 3 under Mike Norvell that this will be his deepest team heading into a college football. Quite possibly a position group that may turn heads despite the lack of scholarship athletes: it may just be the Quarterbacks anchored by Jordan Travis and supported by both AJ Duffy and Tate Rodemaker.  As always, we here at Locked On Seminoles want to thank each and every single one of you for making us your first listen each and every single day and all of your love and support.

With this being the first camp in his career where he is in the driver's seat when it comes ot the starting job, what will that do for Jordan Travis' development during what many be the most important fall camp of Mike Norvell's FSU career?  While Jordan Travis is the focal point of the offense, what abut the weapons around him? Is Cam McDonald gone be a focal point of the offense? Will Mycah Pittman and Johnny Wilson be solid options as they come in form Oregon and Arizona State respectively? Then on the defensive side of the ball, do we need to hear more about these young defensive backs led by Omarion Cooper and Kevin Knowles and can Azaryeah Thomas breakthrough into the rotation a true freshman and will this defensive line live up to their elite billing as Fabien Lovett is a man on a mission headed to 2022.  Lastly, we wrap up with some hot takes as it is Max's turn to give his opinion.

    Florida State Conference Realignment Myth Busting. How FSU Can Close the Revenue Gap if Stuck in the ACC?

    As things stand, FSU is stuck in the ACC until 2036. There are many theories circulating about how the Seminoles could leave for the Big 10 or the SEC. Most of these are based on pure speculation and wishful thinking. In what is hopefully the final conference realignment episode of the offseason, Max and Dave play "Mythbusters" with the various exit strategies that have been raised in the Locked On Seminoles Mailbag this past week. Max explains why unequal revenue sharing could be a short-term band-aide to keep the top schools in the ACC competitive. The two discuss why adding more teams to the ACC does not help Florida State leave the conference. Addressing expansion, Max and Dave discuss how many schools could add more revenue to the ACC than they would take thus being a net addition to the conference. Unfortunately, there aren't many. Finally, they examine the jailbreak strategy discussing if enough ACC schools could find profitable landing spots in other conferences to make a mass exodus feasible.

    "Silver Lining": Florida State Loses 2023 QB Chris Parson but 4-Star Offensive Tackle Lucas Simmons is All In on FSU

    The Florida State Seminoles have suffered yet another QB decommitment. After Sam Howell, Luke Altmeyer, Nicco Marchiol, and others, the Noles were hoping to not get hurt again. Unfortunately, four-star QB recruit Chris Parson made the FSU faithful's fears a reality. Chris Parson had expressed to staff that he wanted to be the only quarterback on Mike Norvell and Co's recruiting board and was unhappy when offers were extended to Brock Glenn and Ricky Collins. The coaches felt that one QB couldn't fill their need for depth in the position group and the partnership between Parson and FSU failed to launch. Fortunately, this news comes in the same week as top 150 prospect, four-star offensive tackle, Lucas Simmons announced his commitment to Florida State. Lucas is a hulking 6'7, 300lb big man with a unique brand of athleticism developed by him growing up in Europe. The son of Able Simmons, former University of Oklahoma offensive lineman, Lucas is a huge addition for the 2023 and another feather in the cap of Offensive Line Coach Alex Atkins. Coach Atkins continues to transform the OL room from FSU's greatest liability to a legitimate strength of the program. Finally, Max is joined by new correspondent Hunter Steele to discuss Lucas Simmons, Johnny Wilson and the rest of the wide receiver room, and give his impression from campus of how winning on the field can swing recruiting moment.

    Florida State Football finds a stroke of much needed recruiting moment landing 2022 DT Ayobami Tifasi. Is this just further proof that Odell Haggins still has a long career ahead of him? The guys break down what this commitment means for Florida State and discuss Coach Odell Haggins' future. Next, Max and Dave talk about another recruit from recently promoted to 3-star Quindarrius Jones. Jones is an athlete that projects to play defensive back in college. It seems like the staff might have gotten in early on an under the radar prospect. However, Max and Dave cant help but ponder if the Noles will be able to hang on if the SEC gets involved in Jones' recruitment. This begs the question, will money be all that matters in the new landscape of college football or can FSU still compete with brand power and prestige? Finally, they discuss Miami being under investigation by the NCAA. They explain how the NCAA could still enforce rules against boosters paying recruits despite student-athletes now being allowed to profit off of their name, image, and likeness (NIL). While the guys wouldn't hate to see Miami in trouble, Max issues a direct warning about the the implication of the NCAA's actions. Learn more about your ad choices.

Originally a transfer from Auburn, DJ Williams was seen as a potential upgrade at the power back position when La'Damian Webb left FSU two years ago.

Why keeping UM in there is so important? Who out of the rest of the AC is the 3rd? Next, the boys discuss a fun little hypothetical. Seeing as the Big Ten and the SEC are inking new TV deals and the revenues of each that are leaking showcase around $100 million, we play the fun hypothetical of moving FSU to a different conference. So we asked each other; 1. What conference would you WANT to see Florida State football compete in; and 2. What conference do you think Mike Norvell and company need to go to in orde to be successful? Does the Pac-12 get some love? Is the big bad SEC as surefire of an answer as we want it to be and Is the Big 12 even a thing anymore?  To wrap up today's show, the gang talks another NCAA potential ruling. The NCAA is toying around with the idea of not only increasing the incoming amount of kids for each class but eliminating the yearly scholarship cap overall. What does increasing form 25 to 32 do for teams like FSU? Do the rich simply get richer?

Later on, the two ask themselves also how this affects the loudest players in the NIL space. Do our friends down in the University of Coral Gables have an issue due to their most prominent, and loudest, booster being at the forefront of possibly why these new rules were drawn up? Is the NCAA finally showing a backbone it hasn't had in sometime?

This segues into a discussion of whether other conferences would benefit from this and how this will play out as there is a push to expand the playoff. Next, after one of Max's greatest dad jokes of all time, the guys look at Florida State's schedule for 2022. They group the games by sure things, coin flips, and discuss which games about which they are feeling the most uneasy. As always, thank you for the love (mostly) and support.

    The LSU Tigers sent ten players to the NFL this past weekend, the Bayou Bengals have lost 31 players to the draft since their 2019 championship, and they are in head coach Brian Kelly's inaugural season. Considering all of that, should the Seminoles be considered an underdog when Florida State takes on LSU in New Orleans this fall? Max and Dave ponder the question and come to the conclusion that the Noles should have a great chance to come back to Tallahassee with a victory. Further, what does a win over LSU mean for the national perception of the program? Will the casual fan care that LSU is in a slump or will FSU get automatic street cred for beating the Tigers? Next, Max and Dave look at the group of players FSU sent to the NFL this past weekend. They are disappointed by only having one player drafted. However, they do acknowledge that all five players were transfers and discuss if this should increase Mike Norvell's ability to recruit high-caliber transfer talent.

    One of the nation's top receivers, Pitt Panthers' Jordan Addison, is rumored to be heading to USC for a massive payday. Many fans and commentators, including the Florida State faithful, are starting to worry that NIL might spell the end of college football as we know it. Max and Drake do not agree. However, the current NIL landscape is far from perfect. The guys discuss why the courting of Jordan Addison feels different than other transfer activity to date. They then discuss if the solution is more regulation or if the market will self-correct. Max also poses the question of how fair this system is to smaller schools and if more should be done to protect parity. However, the guys ultimately conclude that there is work to be done but college football will not die at the hands of NIL and the transfer portal. Next, Max and Drake discuss Florida State's lackluster draft day showing. Will this make things more difficult for Mike Norvell and Co on the recruiting trail? or is this simply a meaningless data point? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

    The transfer portal giveth and the transfer portal taketh away as Florida State loses another player to the transfer portal and the fellas here at Locked ON Seminoles, your favorite daily Florida State Seminoles sports podcast are here to break it all down.  Today, we are joined by Max & Drake as they send you off into the weekend on this lovely Friday. 2020 4-Star safety, converted to linebacker, Jadarius Green-McKnight has entered the transfer portal. the gang discuses what his departure means for the program and now with him joining Corey Wren and Hunter Washington in the portal are there, and if so how many, any more departures form the football program that are on the horizon.  Next, the boys pick up from their conversation of yesterday. With this being Mike Norvell's third season as the head man in charge, we ask if we as a fanbase are lowering expectation on Norvell based on the achievements of season's past. Does this fanbase need a wake-up call to remind them what we should expect every single year? Is the standard still the standard or simply are we losing focus on wat the standard in Tallahassee really is for this football program.  Lastly, Max wants to play a fun little exercise in the vein of the mirror game. He asks Drake, and listeners feel free to chime in down at the comments below, what would be the surprising factor that lands this team at the 9 win mark and what stifles them onto the 6-win mark. IS it Quarterback progression? IS it asking the Defense to shoulder the load again?

    Florida State Football suffered another major letdown on the recruiting trail when five-star offensive tackle transfer Amarius Mims decided to stay at Georgia following a hastily concluded official visit to FSU. Should this be viewed as another loss for Mike Norvell and his staff or should this be chalked up to them being victims of circumstances beyond their control? Regardless, it isn't all negative. Max and Drake talk through how the act of getting Mims on campus could be seen as a signal that the people around the Seminoles program are willing and able to step up to the NIL plate when needed. Could this have a positive residual effect with other big-time recruits? Next, the guys get more theoretical in discussing the place of FSU football in the national landscape. Is Florida State viewed as a USC in that they are viewed as being one or two moves away from being back on top? Has too much time passed and the outside factors become too challenging to the point that FSU is seen as a Nebraska destined to never return to its former glory?

    "Stealing Some Wins": How FSU Can Upset LSU, Clemson in 2022, Football's Greatest Rivalry Renewed at Miami & AJ Duffy Hype

    Florida State Football has been on the wrong side of winnable games the past few seasons. Now, is 2022 the seasons that the college football program can have some upsets of their own. Join the gang today on Locked On Seminoles, your favorite Florida State Seminoles podcast to see where the guys land on these questions. Drake and Dave are running the show today and lead it off with which games they view on the schedule as some "stole wins". Why does Drake feel that Norvell and company can march up into Louisville and stun Heisman sleeper Malik Cunningham under the Friday Night Lights. Does Dave view Tyler Van Dyke is an actual threat to the ACC or will he suffer a sophomore slump when the Hard Rock hosts the biggest rivalry in colleges sports? Most importantly, are potentially ranked squads LSU and Clemson going to drop their first game to Florida State in so many seasons? Next, unfortunately Dave, the conductor of today's experiment, has to take us to games that are potentially traps for Jordan Travis over the season. Does a healthy Phil Jurkovec give the fanbase pause for concern when the Boston College Eagles come to town? Even though they have lost some weapons, Dave Doreen and the NC State Wolfpack may pose a greater threat than ever with Devin Leary, Cory Durden and Cyrus Fagan returning. And lastly, out of Syracuse, Georgia Tech and Louisiana-Lafayette, is another inexcusable loss on the horizon for this Seminoles squad?  To wrap up today's show, Drake has the floor and decides to let the people know what has been troubling him. With the QB room under a microscope over the past few seasons & the lack of transfer QB coming into the fold, is there truly a scenario where AJ Duffy is starting at any point during the season, regardless of Jordan Travis' status. Is this solely based on the potential of the 4-star freshman, or is it simply a case study in what Norvell has shown in the past when managing his QB room.  As always, thanks for making Locked On Seminoles your first listen each and every day.

    Florida State is set to have a potent rushing attack again in 2022. However, will it be enough to lead the confernce with Syracuse and Louisville returning great rushers and UNC looking to reload after leading the conference in 2021? Only time will tell but Max and Drake open the mailbag and give you their opinion on the question in a miniature Max's Math Corner. Next, the duo pivots from the Jimmies and Joes to look at the X's and O's of Mike Norvell's offense. Will this offense need to rely on gadgets and gimmicks in 2022 or will FSU fans start to see a more fundamentally sound offense? Finally, the guys talk defense. They realize that most of the talk in the offseason revolves around the offense despite that only being half of the equation. So, they examine how much improvement - if any - is needed from the defense and if fans should expect to see a better unit on Saturdays in the fall. Support Us By Supporting Our Sponsors!

    Florida State has a big problem. Despite an influx of talent into the wide receiver room, no one has cemented themselves in the WR 1 position. FSU needs Malik McClain or Johnny Wilson to fill the need or the coaching staff may have to continue scouring the transfer portal. Max and Dave kick off your Wednesday morning by discussing the top 3 in their respective wide receiver power rankings following the conclusion of spring practice and the Garnet & Gold Game. Max favors the smaller receivers while Dave explains why he hasn't lost confidence in the roster's current big men. After ranking the wide recievers on the roster, the guys discuss which positions they think Mike Norvell and Co need to supplement using the transfer portal. Do they need another pass catcher or should they prioritize the defensive side of the ball? Is finding a reliable backup QB even a possibility at this point and will AJ Duffy be ready for action in the fall if needed? Finally, the hosts give their thoughts on the coaching staff as things stand. Things could change but Max explains why he is laying off Ron Dugans for a bit but needs to see more from Tight Ends Coach Chris Thompsen's.
