First, let me preface this rant with a disclaimer. I have had some awful experiences with Seminole Boosters over the years. My trust for the organization is not high, because on a couple of different occasions money that was earmarked for an individual sport club ended up in the football account. Phone calls supposedly straightened […]

If there was ever a time to beat a Tar Heel team in Chapel Hill that was nowhere near its championship year last season this was the time. Florida State did not waste that opportunity never trailing in the game giving Leonard Hamilton his first win at North Carolina as the Seminole head coach by […]

I was under the weather yesterday so these are a bit late, but late is better than never I suppose. FSU Baseball Tomahawk Nation has a nice recap of the weekend, and I couldn’t agree more with this statement: Mike Martin put out what I think is his optimal lineup which featured Sherman Johnson at […]

FSU Softball What a beautiful day down at JoAnne Graf Field. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky and it was my favorite kind of weather; comfortable with a sweatshirt on. The Noles played well, against less-than-top competition, winning both games 4-0 and 12-0. I also had a nice chat with some family members of […]

ESPN reporter Heather Dinich has a nice article up today regarding all of the changes Jimbo Fisher is making to the FSU Football program. “It’s a lot different,” said quarterback Christian Ponder. “And it’s a lot different in the sense of it being better.” Check out her full article for an interview with Ponder and a […]

On a post more than two years old, I still receive comments from time to time. A user by the name of Logan actually provided a somewhat level headed rebuttal of my hate on the SEC. I’ll remind you gently though Seminole fans, we’re talking level-headed for an SEC fan. While I appreciate the attempt, […]

I wasn’t there, but Seminoles.com has a great game recap, Noles Run Over Rattlers 9-2. Nolesports.com also chimes in on the game. What the Box Score tells me: First, understand that a box score doesn’t tell you everything. Neither do the game recaps. But, an overall trend of FSU hitting the ball continued, as the […]

Leonard Hamilton could afford to be jovial after the game. In jest Hamilton called it a game of 50 referring to the 50% from the floor, 50% from the arc and particularly noting the 50% from the free throw line the ‘Noles shot for the game. Meanwhile Hamilton’s defense throttled the Virginia Cavaliers 69-50 for […]

Nolesports.com reports that Tapley will move back to 3B and Sherman Johnson will cover 2B while Travis is out. Florida State freshman Devon Travis, who was expected to begin the season as the Seminoles’ starting second baseman, will miss at least 4-8 weeks with an injury to his left wrist. So what does this mean […]

Defense was the name of the game in the second half for the Seminoles. In what was possibly the best defensive effort in any half this season, Florida State slapped a suffocating defense on Boston College holding the Eagles to a season low 17 points on six baskets over the final twenty minutes in beating […]
