Happy Monday and welcome in to Noles News Now, your audio home for all things happening in Florida State athletics on the Tomahawk Nation podcast network. I'm your host Brian Pellerin on this Monday September 19th. Thanks so much for joining me as we enter another game week with an F-S-U victory. After going into Louisville and grabbing a 35-31 win, Florida State is 3-0 for the first time since 2015. The Noles doing so with Jordan Travis, Jared Verse and others watching from the sideline after getting injured in the contest. Still not enough to stop this team. So how was FSU able to pull it off? Listen to this week's SeminoleWrap podcast featuring myself, Jon Marchant and Max Escarpio available today wherever you hear my voice right now as we answer that question, I try to get this deemed the Tate Rodemaker game and we look at how FSU will fair going forward if they are forced to play without those guys. All right now on this week's Seminole Wrap podcast. The first answer to how they'll do will be a bit clearer on Monday when Mike Norvell meets with the media to kickoff Boston College game week. He may be unlikely to share many details, but it'll be the first chance to hear from the head coach on those injuries though he may be vague on real updates until Saturday when they actually play against BC. The Noles are currently 16-point favorites against the Eagles so oddsmakers are confident they'll be fine if those guys do miss time. This is the first time FSU is a double-digit favorite since the 2020 season opener against Georgia Tech and their largest spread since 2016 against Syracuse. If you're going to be in Tallahassee this weekend, you've got a chance to help our Dillan Gibbons and his biggest fan Timothy Donovan. We've shared the story of their friendship before as Gibbons has been a champion for Donovan and his family through his big man big heart efforts. This week is Donovan's 20th birthday so Dillan is inviting fans to stop by their tent on the legacy walk for a slice of cake and help out his NIL efforts to continue giving to charitable efforts. Couple things to watch on the recruiting trail this week as two highly rated recruits will make their college decisions. Linebacker Blake Nichelson will hold his commitment ceremony on Tuesday. Then on Friday, it'll be wide receiver Hykeem Williams announcing his decision. Noles are in the running for both guys so keep an eye out for both of those guys. Elsewhere on campus, the FSU soccer team beat Boston College 6-0 on Saturday. They've now scored 5 or more goals in each of their last four games. Next up is a home match on Thursday night against Louisville. And the volleyball team won in straight sets against UAB this weekend. They'll open conference play at home on Friday against Notre Dame at 6:30. That'll do it for this week's Noles News Now. As always, please follow, rate, and review the show if you like what you hear. It helps us out a lot and allows us to continue bringing you the content we do every day. Including this podcast that you can catch three times a week — Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Florida State Seminoles football overcame a rash of injuries, a hostile crowd and self-inflicted wounds to leave its ACC opener vs. the Louisville Cardinals victorious, securing a 35-31 victory inside Cardinal Stadium. FSU battled back from a deficit on the scoreboard as well as in the momentum, with backup quarterback Tate Rodemaker rising to the occasion following Jordan Travis' departure due to injury. Wide receiver Johnny Wilson put together one of the most impressive wide receiver performances in recent history, going for 149 yards and two touchdowns. The Seminoles' also held sturdy on defense, getting gashed a few times by Louisville's Malik Cunningham but making plays when it needed to — namely a game-sealing interception from Kevin Knowles. To break down FSU's victory, what it means for the program and what lies next for the Seminoles, Tim Scribble, Matt Minnick and Juan Montalvo jumped on to record an instant reaction for the Tomahawk Nation podcast network.

Happy Friday and welcome in to Noles News Now, your audio home for all things happening in Florida State athletics on the Tomahawk Nation podcast network. I'm your host Brian Pellerin on this Monday, September 12th. Thanks so much for joining me as we enter a new game week for the Noles after the bye. Florida State will travel to Louisville for its first ACC game this week. Remember this is a Friday night game as the Cardinals try to run their program like a high school team for some reason. That means it will be Friday Night Lights for the Noles and if you missed it over the weekend, they'll do it in the debut of their-white uniforms. White helmets. White jerseys. White pants. FSU going for the clean look as they head into a sea of cardinal red. That look is not impressing oddsmakers thought as this game opens as a pick em so it's a coin toss in the eyes of Vegas. If FSU gets that coin to land on them, they'll be headed for their first ranking since preseason 2018. The Noles landed just outside the top 25 again in both the coaches and polls this week. A road win against a conference foe should be enough to push them into that number. They weren't expected to leap in with the bye week but had a chance with the chaos that unfolded around them. Jimbo Fisher and Texas A&M's loss to App State was the headliner. But Notre Dame also lost to Marshall at home. Florida lost to Kentucky. Pitt lost to Tennessee and many more in the top 25. It was a bloodbath and even some of the ACC teams that won didn't look all that great. The aforementioned Louisville escaped Orlando with a narrow win over UCF. Clemson's offense looked rough. Boston College continues to slide to open the year. The ACC could be open for the taking. So can FSU be a player for it? We discuss what's wrong with Jimbo as he struggles in Year 5 in College Station and of course, we preview Florida State Louisville as well on this week'sSeminole Wrap podcast. You can find that in the Tomahawk Nation podcast feed or on Tomahawk Nation dot com. This week also meant the return of the NFL season and the headliner was Jameis Winston who led the Saints (WHO DAT) on a miraculous comeback win against the Falcons. Down 16 in the 4th to win it in the final seconds. Two long TD drives and a game-winning field goal drive in the final seconds. A more recent FSU star Jermaine Johnson made his debut Sunday for the Jets getting a sack of Lamar Jackson, who isn't an easy guy to bring down. Lamar's Ravens won, but congrats to Jermaine on his first career sack. The FSU soccer team posted their third consecutive 5-0 win on Sunday against Rice in Houston. Next for the Noles is a trip to Boston College on Friday. Meanwhile, the softball team started fall practice this week as they get ready for their spring season. Two beach volleyball players - Carra Sassack and Alexis Durish earned AVCAAll-American First Team honors. Arden Besecker and Chloe Charles received honorable mentions. And lastly, the men's golf team broke two program records scoring a team total of 261 in the 2nd round of the Maui Jim Invitational. Noles ended up with a third-place finish in the event.

Happy Friday and welcome in to Noles News Now, your audio home for all things happening in Florida State athletics on the Tomahawk Nation podcast network. I'm your host Brian Pellerin this Friday, September 9th. Thanks so much for joining me and a quick thank you to Perry for covering the last few episodes for me while I dealt with a family emergency. This Friday is unfortunately not a football Friday for FSU. The Noles will get a chance to heal their bodies with a bye week after their first 2-0 start since 2016.The next game on the docket is Louisville the following Friday and if you're interested in a sneak peak of the Cardinals, they're in action tonight... this Friday against UCF. That game is in Orlando at 7:30 Eastern tonight on ESPN2. Louisville is looking to avoid an 0-2 start themselves after a blow out loss to Syracuse a week ago. UCF is a 5.5-point favorite. A Louisville loss could really quiet the crowd for next week's game in Louisville. Something to keep an eye on. If FSU is able to get the win next week, they'll already be halfway to bowl eligibility, but ESPN's football power index likes their chances to go bowling already. TheFPI gives them a 94.2% chance to reach a bowl game with a projection of 7.7 wins and a 4.2% chance to win the division. That would be their first bowl game since 2019.A big reason for their growth will be this strong d-line especially the emergence of Jared Verse. The Albany transfer's impressive Week 1 was enough to land him onPro Football Focus' All-Defensive Team for the week. The win over LSU will likely prove dividends in recruiting as well with a lot of recruits in attendance including 2024 five-star RB Kam Davis who was rocking garnet and gold attire in the Superdome. The Noles commit has also received an invite to the All-American Bowl. One of the big names left on the 2023 board for the Noles is4-star linebacker Blake Nichelson, who just announced his commitment date on September 20th. That's next Wednesday. Nichelson will choose between FSU, Oregon, and UCLA live on Youtube. Elsewhere on campus, the FSU soccer team rattled off another dominant victory, posting a 5-0 dub on Florida Gulf Coast. The FSU volleyball team has posted its 5thstraight win en route to its best start since 2014. And the FSU men's golf team is set to open its year with the Maui Jim Intercollegiate around 1 pm on Friday. If you're unsure how to spend this first bye week and looking for games to watch, check out my picks article on Tomahawk Nation as well. I along with anybody who wants to play along in the comments will give picks to the 10 games I think are the best to watch this week. Some of the ones highlighted this week — Alabama at Texas, the return of Sam Hartman for Wake Forest at Vanderbilt, Baylor at BYU, Appalachian State visiting Texas A&M, Kentucky at Florida, and many more. It's all for fun and takes like 2 seconds to hammer out your picks. You can join in on the fun on Tomahawk Nation dot com and we use the comments to talk about the games as they happen as well.

Happy Monday... Noles Nation... Welcome to your first official game week of 2022. The Florida State Seminoles football team is back on the field at Doak for a game that matters this weekend. Get the tailgates and TVs ready. Football is back. Thank you so much for listening to Noles News Now, your podcast home for all the news happening around Florida State sports three times a week. I'm your host Brian Pellerin on this Monday morning, guiding you through the weekend that was. The biggest note, yeah, I already told you. Fall camp is finished and football is here. And if it doesn't quite feel like football yet for you, look in this article and check out the video of Jordan Travis smashing the rock. It's a sign of achieving a goal, overcoming obstacles and showing progress and work from a player that has the mindset to win so to end fall camp. It makes sense that the undisputed leader of this team, quarterback Jordan Travis, took the hammer and closed camp the best way possible. Travis gets his first chance to show off the improvements he's made in his passing game this weekend against Duquesne. Nobody needs to take that leap as much as the Noles signal caller. We'll see that Saturday, but there's still plenty of game week activities to see between now and then. First and foremost, it'll be Mike Norvel's weekly press conference today. In case you forgot how that goes, each Monday Norvell adresses the media -- typically recapping the week before after reviewing the film and looking ahead to this weekend's game. With no game to review, he'll probably tackle many of the same questions as he has this offseason with some extras about Duquesne. We'll have a recap of that presser posted on Tomahawk Nation dot com later today with the highlights. This week on Seminole Wrap, Max Escarpio and myself take a look at some of the biggest standouts from the final week of fall camp, look ahead to what we want to see from FSU against Duquesne and some news out of Baton Rouge as LSU appears to be down an offensive playmaker for the FSU on top of the already lingering QB battle there. Lots going on as we do a final fall camp episode. Later this week, we'll drop a full season preview to get you set for the season ahead as well looking at predictions, wins-losses, surprises and more. That episode expected Friday. The final fall camp episode is available now in your podcast feed. College football not the only sport getting underway as plenty of future Noles gridiron stars have started their high school seasons. Among them, Benedictine High School QB and FSU commit Luke Kromenhoek. He dropped 4 touchdowns in the first half of a 45-0 route that included a nice dime down the right sideline you should find in this article if you haven't seen it already. Meanwhile, the FSU soccer team has notched their first W of the season. After a draw in their opener on Thursday against 12th ranked South Carolina, the Noles beat Georgia in Athens 3-1 to get the first win of Brian Pensky's tenure as head coach. Florida State jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead in the first 28 minutes and never looked back. They return to Tallahassee for their home opener on Thursday against Auburn. That's it for this Monday's Noles News Now. We'll be back on Wednesday to update on the biggest happenings early on this opening game week of 2022. Until then, be sure to follow this feed so you're up to date on the latest this football season. Thanks for listening. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

Meanwhile, the FSU soccer team has notched their first W of the season. After a draw in their opener on Thursday against 12th ranked South Carolina, the Noles beat Georgia in Athens 3-1 to get the first win of Brian Pensky's tenure as head coach. Florida State jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead in the first 28 minutes and never looked back. They return to Tallahassee for their home opener on Thursday against Auburn. That's it for this Monday's Noles News Now. We'll be back on Wednesday to update on the biggest happenings early on this opening game week of 2022.

Hello and welcome to Noles News Now, the latest in Florida State Seminoles sports presented by Tomahawk Nation. I'm your host Perry Kostidakis — let's hop right in.  FSU football has been grinding away on the practice field — after last Saturday's scrimmage, the Seminoles have amped up the intensity in a week that head coach Mike Norvell has designated as a major one. He said they've turned up the notch a bit, saying this week's upcoming scrimmage on Saturday will help truly identify where and who this team is in its progress. Florida State heads out to UNF for an away-from-home two-day camp session in Jacksonville starting Thursday. The excursion is a chance for the team to bond a bit through both travel and planned experiences, as well as get the team used to practice out of its element ahead of the season. So far in camp, the team has showcased a different level of depth and talent -- notably, the wide receiver group has looked like a step above what we've seen in camp over the last few years, with the staff's investment in the position over the offseason seemingly paying off. Across the board, good, productive reps are being had, and there isn't a noticeable drop-off when changing out starters -- a major indicator of progress for Norvell's squad. In basketball news, FSU continues its Canadian exhibition tour, having faced off against Carleton University on Monday. They took down the Ravens 98-64 — an impressive feat given that the bulk of FSU players receiving minutes were fresh faces, either in the form of newbies or walk-ins.  FSU baseball made another hire official — the Seminoles announced the addition of Brad Vanderglas as an assistant coach. He'll work with the Seminole outfielders, manage practices, and lead all instructional camps and clinics. If you've missed some of the latest episodes that have dropped on our TomahawkNation.com podcast network, do yourselves a favor and scroll back a bit on the feed. We have a great interview with Bryant McFadden breaking down the 2022 season for FSU, an insider look at everything Seminoles basketball and a breakdown of 2023 blue-chip running back commit Samuel Singleton. On the website, we've got live coverage of today's FSU football practice action, as well as a preseason update on how Seminoles recruiting is shaking out for the class of 2023.

Happy Monday and welcome in to Noles News Now, your podcast home for all things Florida State. I'm Brian Pellerin and I'll be guiding you through the weekend that was. And the big ticket item was the first scrimmage of fall camp. We have plenty of notes, takeaways, and full press conferences posted on TomahawkNation.com, but I'll bring you the SparkNotes version of it. The biggest overall notes — largely positive vibes from the coaching staff. Mike Norvell said he was plenty happy with his team's effort across the board. He marked the improvement he's seen in Illinois transfer wide receiver Deuce Spann and linebacker Tatum Bethune. He also mentioned his team's grit and grind heading into week two. Defensive coordinator Adam Fuller specifically mentioned his group's speed getting to the ball. Offensive coordinator Alex Atkins was thrilled with his younger guys and other new faces living up to the standard in their first go around in the scrimmage. Again, all that content and more is available now on TomahawkNation.com. Also available there and wherever you're listening to this is a new episode of the Seminole Wrap podcast, where myself and Max Escarpio talk with former FSU star and two-time Super Bowl champion Bryant McFadden about a wide range of topics, including the need for Jordan Travis to answer the bell now to take the next step, why the LSU game is the biggest game on the entire schedule, the direction, and expectations of this program, fun tales of his teammates during his time at FSU and more. If you are looking to get excited for the year, listen to that pod because Bryant will have you ready to put on a helmet and run through a wall. Really interesting stuff and he's making ventures into the NIL space to help the Seminoles in recruiting as well. Definitely worth your time. Speaking of recruiting, the Noles just hit a home run on the trail this weekend with the commitment from 4-star running back Samuel Singleton on Friday. The 5-foot-11180 running back is from Fleming Island Florida. Our Three Stars of recruiting guys looked into what the Seminoles are getting from this tough runner. You can get that information in their latest episode available now. The men's basketball team is north of the border this month for some scrimmages. They knocked off the Ottawa Gee-Gees, real name I'm told, over the weekend by 20 so it's a good sign there. For a deeper look into the trip this preseason, Tomahawk Nation's Michael Rogner dropped a podcast also available now on this feed. Football, not the only team holding their first scrimmage of the fall, as soccer was back on the pitch this weekend as they look to reload from last year's championship team in Brian Pensky's first season. For more on the team plus observations on men's and women's hoops as well as softball, take a look at Prince Akeem Jaffar'snotebook: Burning Questions Edition. Fall sports are also most here and we're doing what we can to deliver all the content you can desire. Lots of pods and articles are available for you to pick and choose how you get your content.

Four-star RB Samuel Singleton has committed to Florida State. Mike Norvell's Florida State Seminoles 2023 recruiting class has added another nice bluechip recruit on the rec trail with his commitment. Running back is a big position of need for FSU and the ‘Noles got one of the best the state has to offer. Singleton hails from Fleming Island, Florida, and attends Fleming Island High School. He stands 5'11 180 pounds and has a 90 rating (4-star) from the 247 Sports Composite List. The sites consider him the 287th best player in the country (15th best RB and 58th best player in Florida). The talented back chose Florida State over offers from the LSU Tigers, Miami Hurricanes, Michigan Wolverines, Michigan State Spartans, Penn State Nittany Lions, Tennessee Volunteers, and UCF Knights, among many others. Before his recent official visit, Tomahawk Nation recruiting analyst NoleThruandThru had this to say about Singleton: Singleton is a tough runner and doesn't shy away from contact. He's a track and field star with nice speed, as evidenced by his 10.86 100-meter dash last spring. He's a threat to break off a huge play every time he touches the ball, and averaged 6.4 yards/carry last season. Singleton would be a welcome addition to the running back room.

Hello everyone, happy Wednesday and welcome to Noles News Now, the latest in Florida State Seminoles sports, brought to you by Tomahawk Nation. I'm your host Perry Kostidakis — let's jump right in. Today is an off day for Florida State Seminoles football as it makes its way through preseason camp — FSU has six days of practice under its belt, with Tuesday being its first full day in pads after a few days of uppers. So far, consensus has been that this team is much deeper than it has been in the last few years — competition doesn't fall off when the ones rotate out, and the newcomers, from transfers to freshmen, have begun to find their footing. Azareye'h Thomas, in particular, has stood out as one of the most consistent players across the board, let alone of freshmen. He's still got a bit of a ways to go until he's ready to take that and elevate to a game-in and game-out level, but he's definitely on his way to becoming an impact player for FSU — and it's looking like it could be this year. The offensive and defensive line depth have been two of the main highlights — it's resulted in plenty of competition in the run and pass game, as running back Trey Benson has looked fantastic and ready to take over Jashaun Corbin's any-down back mantle. Jordan Travis, settled in as the guy at quarterback, has gotten a chance to be a bit more comfortable in the system and not have to force as much, while the defensive backs have showcased depth on depth on depth. Games still need to be played, obviously, and there's still a lot to be proven, but feeling good after the first week of camp beyond the top guys is a far cry from where the Seminoles have been in years past. FSU is gearing up for its first scrimmage on Saturday — until then, stay tuned to Tomahawk for coverage from the next few days of practice. In other news, defending national champion Florida State soccer earned a number one preseason ranking in the coaches poll — the Seminoles have a few talented international players to replace, alongside others who graduated but still field a squad that'll be a threat in the postseason in December. They kicked off practice on Tuesday as well, gearing up for a season opener vs. South Carolina on August 18th. Those are the main big things of the day — if you missed our latest episode of the Florida State of Recruiting podcast, the boys recapped a major few days in Seminoles recruiting, from the flurry of defensive back commits to breaking down the Seminole Showcase recruiting event to who might potentially be next to join FSU's recruiting class.

Well would you look at that... if you haven't already, turn that desk calendar and mark the 27th — nope, not just my mom's birthday — Florida State plays a real football game this month. Finally, we're here friends. Thank you so much for listening to this August 1st edition of Noles News Now, your podcast home for all things FSU sports. I'm your host Brian Pellerin and yes, I'm ready for football. I hope you are too. The first week of fall camp is almost over and the guys definitely seem eager to get those full pads on. So far it's been soft pads, but the guys are still going full force. Some Sunday observations from our guy Tommy Mire today had AJ Duffy putting out his best performance so far, showing off his potential. DB Azareye'h Thomas was also the best out there. Sideline to sideline making plays. Could he be in for a breakout? Four days into camp, Mike Norvell is pulling ahead in his daily footrace with defensive tackle Robert Cooper. He's up 3-1 now in their races to kick off camp. No matter how you slice it, the guys are loose. There are so many more things happening from just a few short days into camp. For the full list of things to see, check out this week's Seminole Wrap podcast. We have Tommy on to share what else he is seeing out there and the great recruiting weekend the coaching staff had as well. Again, check it all out on this week's Seminole Wrap podcast. That big recruiting weekend included a whole bunch of top-tier guys visiting and a blue-chip commitment. That came from four-star DB CJ Heard. He had a great commitment video. We called it the digital version of the hat fake out. If you haven't seen it, check it out in our story online. The Noles also landed a grad transfer from Jacksonville State in Malik Feaster. He'll add some depth to that unit, where you can never have enough guys.

Well would you look at that... if you haven't already, turn that desk calendar and mark the 27th — nope, not just my mom's birthday — Florida State plays a real football game this month. Finally, we're here friends. Thank you so much for listening to this August 1st edition of Noles News Now, your podcast home for all things FSU sports. I'm your host Brian Pellerin and yes, I'm ready for football. I hope you are too. The first week of fall camp is almost over and the guys definitely seem eager to get those full pads on. So far it's been soft pads, but the guys are still going full force. Some Sunday observations from our guy Tommy Mire today had AJ Duffy putting out his best performance so far, showing off his potential. DB Azareye'h Thomas was also the best out there. Sideline to sideline making plays. Could he be in for a breakout? Four days into camp, Mike Norvell is pulling ahead in his daily footrace with defensive tackle Robert Cooper. He's up 3-1 now in their races to kick off camp. No matter how you slice it, the guys are loose. There are so many more things happening from just a few short days into camp. For the full list of things to see, check out this week's Seminole Wrap podcast. We have Tommy on to share what else he is seeing out there and the great recruiting weekend the coaching staff had as well. Again, check it all out on this week's Seminole Wrap podcast. That big recruiting weekend included a whole bunch of top-tier guys visiting and a blue-chip commitment. That came from four-star DB CJ Heard. He had a great commitment video. We called it the digital version of the hat fake out. If you haven't seen it, check it out in our story online. The Noles also landed a grad transfer from Jacksonville State in Malik Feaster. He'll add some depth to that unit, where you can never have enough guys. And if you haven't checked it out yet, give a look at our Up Close with Tomahawk series introducing you to us and our writing staff so we're more than just names on a byline or in my case a voice in your head.

On this week's Seminole Wrap podcast, hosts Brian Pellerin and Max Escarpio talk with Tomahawk Nation writer Tommy Mire to get his observations from camp so far. Who has stood out? Who are the leaders? And what he's keeping an eye on in the coming weeks? The crew breaks it all down plus looks at the newest commitment in FSU's 2024 class and reacts to the ACC media poll.

Hello again and Happy Monday. Welcome in to Noles News Now. Thanks for starting your week with us here on Tomahawk Nation's Podcast Network. I'm your host BrianPellerin, getting you ready for the week ahead and yes, yes, yes. It's finally going to include football. Yes, it's just camp, but it's good to have football news back in our lives. That'll get underway on Tuesday with players reporting. That'll also come with a pre-camp luncheon plus a coach availability so there will be boatloads of content coming your way starting then. We'll also have position previews dropping all week so keep an eye out for those as well, we have some posted now on the quarterback, running back, and offensive line. The defensive line preview drops Tuesday. We've got a beyond-the-numbers dive into Jammie Robinson and Akeem Dent. Could they be the nextelite safety duo in the ACC? Speaking of the conference, the Seminole Wrap crew took a look at the ACC as a whole on this week's episode to decide where FSU fits in the fold. Which teams are better than Florida State, which teams are worse, and which teams are a coin toss? Lots of fun breakdowns of each team at a point where everybody is feeling the most confident in their team. On Friday, tight end Camm McDonald landed on the Mackey Award watchlist, for the nation's best tight end. McDonald caught 24 passes for 243 yards and two touchdowns. Elsewhere for the football team, it's a big recruiting weekend coming up. The Seminoles are expecting a lot of important guys on campus for this one. To catch up on that, be sure to hunt down our recruiting thread for a list of the potential visitors, the guys who plan to be there, and more. Lots of great stuff from our recruiting guys and I can't talk recruiting without pushing you to listen to the Florida State of Recruiting guys, our three stars pod. They crush it. So much great info. Can'trecommend it enough. The rest of campus remains relatively quiet outside of the soccer team who is moving close to their season as well. FSU recently posted an interview with new coach Brian Pensky as he tries to connect with the fanbase and share his vision to sustain the excellence of the program. Part of that appears to be some upgrades to the pitch as the soccer fields got an upgraded video board ahead of their season. That'll do it for this edition of Seminole Wrap. As always, if you like what you hear, please support us by throwing a five-star review our way, and be sure to follow this feed to get this pod three times a week and our other great weekly content like Seminole Wrap and the Florida State of Recruiting that I mentioned earlier and more.

Hello and welcome to Noles News Now, the latest in Florida State Seminoles sports presented by Tomahawk Nation. I'm your host Perry Kostidakis — let's hop right in.  Today's big news came in the form of FSU kicking off ACC Media Days — head coach Mike Norvell as well as quarterback Jordan Travis, defensive tackle Fabien Lovett and safety Jammie Robinson all took the podium to talk expectations for 2022 and more. There wasn't exactly anything World-changing said — media days aren't really known for their substance when it comes to answers — but mainly reaffirmed what we've been hearing from those 4 and others on the team this offseason. Jordan Travis is taking that step forward as a team leader, rather than solely a player, and according to the group, the entire team is gelling, becoming much more comfortable within the system, largely attributed to bringing back plenty of experience.  ACC commish Jim Phillips also spoke on Wednesday, hyping up the conference's success in 2021-22, when it captured more national titles than any other conference. He touched on the obvious topics — saying he is for NIL but claiming only Congress can put in meaningful rules, advocating for college football playoff expansion and, of course, conference realignment.  He says all options are on the table — from uneven revenue distribution to expansion. He did say that he has full faith in schools not leaving, given the iron clad grant of rights, and again hyped up the ACC, offering a gem of a quote, saying that the conference leads in “all metrics, except finances,” which, you know, is pretty key. He came off as a man well-aware the previous form of college football and athletics as we knew it is in its final breaths, definitely aware of the issues the ACC faces financially. Outside of that, FSU released its media guide and an updated roster — a few weight and number changes, nothing major. You can see our full breakdown on TomahawkNation.Com.  That's where you can catch more on these stories, including full transcripts from today's ACC Kickoff events, and other Seminoles sports.

It's another largely quiet weekend on the FSU campus, but we are slowly moving closer to football season as the ACC hosts their ACC Kickoff media days this week in Charlotte. That gets underway on Wednesday. Florida State will go that same day. The Seminoes representatives there will be head coach Mike Norvell, quarterback Jordan Travis, defensive tackle Fabian Lovett and defensive back Jammie Robinson. ACC commissioner Jim Philips will also speak on Wednesday. He'll actually be kicking off the proceedings. Interesting to see what he'll have to say in light of the recent conference realignment moves that ACC has largely sat on the sidelines of. Will hetake a strong position on the jostling or will he spew cliches? That exact question was one of the ones tackled on this week's Seminole Wrap podcast. Myself along with Max Escarpio and Jon Marchant talk through what he maybe willor should say. Plus we talk about the ongoing rebuild through the focus on offensive line recruiting. Should we be calling this the Alex Atkins rebuild, instead of the Mike Norvell rebuild? The new O-C putting in tons of strong work on the recruiting trail to uplift this roster that will pay dividends now and into the future.Check it out. That episode dropping Monday morning wherever you get this podcast and on Tomahawk Nation dot com. Coming this August, Doak Campell will get a new bit of a new look as FSU announced their plan to update the facades on the press box and suites with more of the program's history. It'll have retired numbers, championships, bowl appearances, and all Americans alongside Bobby Bowden's name. A chance for FSU to really showcase its deep, prestigious history to fans, players, and potential recruits. The first chance to check it out is that home opener in August. In case you missed it at the end of last week, members of the FSU football team are banding together to help their fellow teammate Greedy Vance and his family restore their home in New Orleans. Vance's family home was impacted by Hurricane Ida last August and the family is still working to get back on their feet. Many of us I'm sure live along the coast know how difficult that hurricane recovery process can be. So offensive lineman Dillan Gibbons alongside Jordan Travis have started a GoFundMeto support them get through that process. If you'd like to check it out and help however you can, we've got an article on our website about it linking to that fund. Elsewhere on campus, new head baseball coach Link Jarrett keeps filling up his first staff with guys from his old staff as pitching coach Chuck Ristano is the latest guy to make the leap from Notre Dame to Tallahassee. Ristano had spent the last 12 years at Notre Dame. Another big get for Link. In hoops, a lot of former Noles continue to showcase their skills in the final few games of the NBA's summer league and on Sunday, nobody did so better than John Butler who had a perfect night from the field. 9/9 shooting including 6/6 from beyond the arc left with 25 points and 7 rebounds for the Pelicans. That's a young group inNew Orleans that needs some knockdown shooting. Maybe he can catch on there this fall. He'll likely start that process as a two-way player first, but we'll have to see how that process unfolds. The soccer team has announced their 2022 schedule as they get set to begin their first under new head coach Brian Pensky. It'll be a bit of a tougher task as the roster has lost 3 of their bigger names in Emily Madril, Kirsten Pavlisko and Yujie Zhao, but this team should still have enough talent to compete this year.

Good morning... good afternoon... good evening... No matter what time you're listening, yes, you've made it to the Friday edition of Noles News Now. I'm your host, Brian Pellerin who will be guiding you in to the weekend with the latest news and notes from around Florida State football, baseball, and more. The biggest story to look ahead to is the unofficial start of ACC football season next week with the ACC Football Kickoff media days in Charlotte. The Seminoles will be sending veterans Jordan Travis, Fabien Lovett, and Jammie Robinson alongside Mike Norvell on July 20th - that's next Wednesday. The Noles will be just more than a month away from taking the field for the first time at that point and two months from beginning ACC play on a Friday night in Louisville. An announcement from ESPN this week actually slid that kickoff back 30 minutes so kickoff for that game is now at 7:30 pm, in case you've got to adjust your calendar or travel plans. It's been a busy summer on the recruiting trail for the Florida State Seminoles coaching staff as they continue to shape the future of this roster. One of the biggest areas to address is solidifying the trenches and recent offensive line commit Roderick Kearney looks to be the centerpiece of that effort going forward. This week, he joined our Florida State of Recruiting podcast for an interview about FSU, new offensive coordinator Alex Atkins and much more. Check it out to hear from Big Rod, a leader of the Noles for the future. Of course, Atkins was a huge part in landing Kearney and many other commits this offseason. He's been an incredible asset on the recruiting trail for FSU so the question is how does he rank in compared to other Florida State's other top recruiters of the past decade. David Stout tries to tackle that in a column posted to Tomahawk Nation dot com this morning. There have been some great assistants and Atkins is off to a strong start to be among if not the best of the bunch. Link Jarrett is hoping his newest hire will also be a major recruiting ace for the Noles as he's landed his first recruiting coordinator as the head man of FSU. Jarrett announced Thursday that Rich Wallace will make the jump from Notre Dame to Tallahassee with him to join the Noles coaching staff in the recruiting coordinator role. Wallace already has ties to the Sunshine State with his experience at Jacksonville and UCF. One day before FSU football starts their season next month against Duquesne, the athletic department will induct the newest members of the Florida State Hall of Fame class announced this week. In total, 10 Seminole greats will have their names added to the hall including football stars Snoop Minnis and E.G. Green, golf star Brooks Koepka, baseball player of the year James Ramsey, soccer greats Amanda Dacosta and Toni Pressley plus others from tennis, swimming and diving and more.

Hello everyone, happy Wednesday, and welcome to Noles News Now, the latest in Florida State Seminoles sports, brought to you by Tomahawk Nation. I'm your host Perry Kostidakis — let's jump right in. The big news of the day — a move that's been predicted for a bit and finally came into fruition — on Tuesday, four-star quarterback Chris Parson decided to reopen his recruitment, decommitting from the Seminoles. Parson, who had been committed to Florida State for just under a year, said he had long coveted playing in Tallahassee but needed to make a move that assured his future — it's been reported and confirmed by his father that he wasn't interested in being part of a two-quarterback class. FSU has been extremely open about the fact that it wants two quarterbacks — it seems that they were hoping that Parson would want to be part of that plan, but as soon as fellow four-star and Elite 11 quarterback Brock Glenn began to receive crystal balls to FSU, the writing was on the wall. It's a temporary hit in terms of PR, given the news of Desmond Ricks's claims of FSU cutting off contact getting plenty of traction with disgruntled fans and gleeful rivals, but overall, FSU has been doing a lot of good on the trail. Four-star, blue-chip NFL talent Lucas Simmons committed to FSU on Monday — if you haven't, check out the Florida State of Recruiting that dropped that talks about Simmons' game and who else might be joining #Tribe23. In this day in conference realignment rumors, the Dallas Morning News is reporting that SMU has been in discussions with the Big 12, the ACC, and the Pac-12. While that sounds cool if you were playing NCAA 13, it really doesn't do too much to add to the value of the conference, which is the main issue plaguing FSU and the rest of the ACC right now as the era of megaconferences looms closer and closer. Outside of that, it's been a relatively quiet week with summer in full swing. Make sure you're keeping posted to TomahawkNation.com for all the latest in FSU sports — not only can you find quick updates on everything FSU, but we've got plenty of deep-dive content and conversation with community popping.

Outside of that, it's been a relatively quiet week with summer in full swing.

Hello everyone, happy Monday — hope you all had a great weekend, welcome in to Noles News Now, the latest in Florida State Seminoles sports, presented by Tomahawk Nation. I'm your host Perry Kostidakis — let's hop right in. Another big day in FSU recruiting — offensive lineman Lucas Simmons, a blue-chip prospect with legitimate NFL potential, is set to announce his choice of college today at 1 p.m. at a ceremony in Clearwater. Simmons is a Swedish native but isn't exactly a stranger to the game — his father, Able, is a former Oklahoma Sooners offensive lineman.  The Seminoles seem to be the favorite to land the 6-7, 300-pound tackle — not only has offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Alex Atkins managed to continue his impressive streak of getting top talent interest in Tallahassee, but FSU was one of the first schools to offer Simmons prior to his recruitment blowing up — a common theme so far for the Seminoles, one that has either been a key factor in snagging talent or an ironic asterisk as that talent moved on to another program. Our recruiting trio talked about his recruitment on our latest Florida State of Recruiting podcast — I'm sure we'll hear a bit more about it in the coming days, wink wink. FSU has had an impressive run in the trenches as of late — but got a bit of a Twitter timeline drag on Sunday when Hayes Fawcett, a graphic designer who puts out edits for the majority of the top recruits in the country, shared a quote from top 2024 defensive back Desmond Ricks, who says he wanted to commit to FSU, then they stopped talking to him, and that was that. That naturally stirred up the fanbase, but a little bit more insight showed that maybe, possibly, that post was some strategic planting via a rival school, one that has been seemingly getting more ballsy by the day when it comes to recruiting. Fawcett had several posts before and after that graphic exchanging praise and messages with the Miami Hurricanes staff — which even if there was something fishy going on, the point remains that that quote was blasted out on the social medias, and several high-profile recruits commented on it echoing similar complaints. While it's not a nail in the coffin situation, it's one that should have Mike Norvell and staff on high alert, even moreso than they were already heading into a season that has a chance to define his tenure. Outside of that, nothing major in realignment news — though, there is a chance that given the way the rest of the news so far around it has broken, by the time you listen to this, there's been some shocking new development. Last we left off, we had two major reports — one, from major media outlets reporting the Pac-12 and ACC exploring a potential partnership, the other from a single person who runs a swimming publication that Virginia, UNC, FSU, and Clemson are negotiating to join the SEC, with ESPN willing and ready to void the ACC's television contract. While bigger news has come from unlikelier sources, and it is almost definitely true that those schools (as well as others in the ACC) are looking for a way out, it's not exactly good business for ESPN to dissolve the contract that guarantees it a great deal for the next 14 years.  The ACC and Pac-12 merger doesn't solve anything — or help FSU Kalen DeLoach's next step is crucial for FSU's defense You can listen to more discussion on that on the Seminole Wrap, where Brian Pellerin and I talk about the latest as well the best move for FSU, or you can share your frustrations at the stupidity that is the PACCt by heading to TomahawkNation.com and reading Juan Montalvo's analysis of why it is a terrible idea for everybody.

Hello everyone, happy Wednesday -- this is Noles News Now, the latest in Florida State Seminoles sports, presented by Tomahawk Nation. I'm Perry Kostidakis -- let's jump in. More news on the recruiting trail for FSU -- this time in the form of a 2023 linebacker commit, DeMarco Ward out of Duluth, Georgia. A three-star prospect, the Seminoles earned his pledge over conference opponents Louisville, Wake Forest, and Duke as well as the UCF Knights and Memphis Tigers. Ward stands at 6-foot-2, 205-pounds and accumulated nearly 80 tackles (65 of which were solo), three sacks, and an interception last season. In addition to linebacker, he gets reps at wide receiver, as well as playing basketball and running track to complement his gridiron exploits. Ward's ranking doesn't immediately jaw drop -- he's a newly-christened three-star -- but his highlights show an affinity for contact, an ability to diagnose plays, and some impressive flashes of athleticism. He's a nice addition to a 2023 class that's looking to hear to some good news as we get into July -- a month where FSU has the chance to snag several commits, mostly blue-chip. Some major football news in the ACC, with the conference dropping divisions starting in 2023 and instead having teams play three permanent opponents while rotating other programs on the schedule so that each team has the chance to play a home and away game at each member school. That's a benefit not lost on FSU athletic director Michael Alford, who said in a press release that “The new format means our season ticket holders will see every ACC team play in Doak Campbell Stadium over a four-year period.” As part of the new arrangement, Florida State will be facing off against the Clemson Tigers, Miami (FL) Hurricanes, and Syracuse Orange yearly. Why Syracuse? Our sources have said that rather than saddle FSU with a trap game in Georgia Tech each year, FSU lobbied for a matchup that would help expand its geographical footprint as well as present a little bit less of a challenge, given that its two permanent matchups are against two of the bigger names in the conference. For those curious, outside of FSU, Miami's other two permanent opponents are Boston College and Louisville, while Clemson is paired up with Georgia Tech and NC State. FSU track star Trey Cunningham became the second Nole in school history to be named a finalist for The Bowerman — one of three male finalists for college track and field's most prominent individual award. Via FSU, he was the first athlete in NCAA history to run 13.22 or faster nine times in the 110m hurdles and the only athlete to run 7.42 or faster four times in the 60m hurdles.  Of the three finalists, Cunningham is the only athlete to be undefeated against collegians in both the indoor and outdoor seasons. Cunningham went 20-for-20 against collegiate competition.

The Seminoles are in the thick of recruiting season and tension is building towards who the future is for Mike Norvell at QB. But currently, that future is in question as it seems less likely that they will retain 2023 QB Chris Parson. They have also offered two other QBs for the 2023 class with Brock Glenn and Purdue commit Rickie Collins, they need to land at least one of the three and seemingly hope to bring in two. Beyond that, the Seminoles have made great strides along the offensive line with all the talent that OC/OL Coach Alex Atkins is bringing in. This team had 21 different offensive line combinations in 2021 and has done all that they can to make sure they have improved the line. Atkins helped bring in five offensive linemen to the 2022 class (more than any other position) along with four potential contributing linemen via the portal with Bless Harris, Dmitri Emmanuel, Kayden Lyles, and Jazston Turnetine. They have also tried to fix the lack of talent at the receiver position with impact transfers like Mycah Pittman, Johnny Wilson, and Winston Wright. But the question is will this talent be enough in a pivotal 2022 season for Mike Norvell? Norvell has been a good X's and O's coach without the results and given the pressure he is under for 2022, no matter the bad luck they may face it seems this is a tipping point for Mike Norvell's tenure at Florida State...

Hello everyone, happy Wednesday -- this is Noles News Now, the latest in Florida State Seminoles sports, presented by Tomahawk Nation. I'm Perry Kostidakis -- let's jump in. Right off the rip, some big news for Florida State football on the recruiting trail -- on Tuesday, the Seminoles officially announced the addition of South Carolina offensive tackle transfer Jazston Turnetine to the roster. At 6-foot-6, 337 pounds with starting experience, he offers a nice bit of depth to an offensive line room that has seen a near complete overhaul this offseason. Florida State has added ten offensive lifeman, fortifying a position group that two years ago was one of the main weaknesses of the entire team, let alone the offense. While Turnetine doesn't figure to be a starter, having usable depth is a far cry from where Florida State has been in the past. Speaking of recruiting, here's your reminder that you are getting older and older by the day -- Jonah Winston, brother of Jameis, is now a quarterback prospect on FSU's radar. Granted, as a 2026 prospect, that's still a few years off from being a recruiting battle to follow, but Winston was on campus the past week for a football camp. He spoke with Tomahawk's Max Escarpio, talking about his relationship with head coach Mike Norvell and how it felt to be back on campus, albeit in a different capacity, after so many years. One impressive take he had was on the progression of his recruitment, saying quote, “at my age, right now, the offers really don't matter because you never know -- I can stay the same and not improve. I'm going to make sure that doesn't happen... I will get better as I get older.” adding that being able to commit to FSU when that time comes would be “like going back home!” In baseball news, Notre Dame was officially eliminated from the College World Series on Tuesday, falling to Texas A&M in a do-or-die game. It marked an end to a miracle run by the Fighting Irish which saw them eliminate the top-seeded Tennessee Volunteers — it could also potentially mark the end of the Link Jarrett era for the school, with FSU baseball doggedly pursuing the former Seminoles ballplayer as its replacement for Mike Martin Jr. Jarrett spoke on the FSU coaching opening after the loss, emphasizing that, while opportunities might bring themselves to top of mind, his focus throughout the process has been on bringing the best out of his players, something he managed to accomplish during a run that sits as one of the best in Notre Dame program history.  When could we potentially hear word on a hire? There's a chance it could be as soon as this week, possibly early next -- the Seminoles have a few baseball camps scheduled. Offseason camps are huge for non-revenue sports -- and while that doesn't necessarily mean that a head coach needs to be in place, it's pretty helpful to have one at the helm during what's one of the more financially lucrative endeavors for the program. Some other small news and notes: Florida State hurdler Trey Cunningham was named one of 10 semifinalists for The Bowerman award, given annually by the USTFCCCA to the most outstanding male and female NCAA track & field athletes in the nation .Of the 10 semifinalists, Cunningham is the only athlete to go undefeated against collegiate competition in their primary event, going a perfect 20-for-20 in the 60m hurdles and the 110m hurdles during the indoor and outdoor season. And history set to be made -- former Florida State women's soccer and current North Carolina Courage defender Carson Pickett is prepping for her first-ever action on the US national team — Pickett is the first player with a limb difference ever called up to the women's national team.
