With Spring Football almost finished, I thought it would be time to once again come out of hibernation. There has been plenty talked about for Florida State’s 2011 campaign. The Sept 17th game vs Oklahoma has already been circled as another “Is FSU back moment”, while the tin foil hat crowd thinks the ACC is […]

Moments earlier Chris Singleton pumped faked getting his man in the air and drove the ball in along the right baseline for the slam dunk giving Florida State a 71-70 lead. Seven point nine seconds remained in overtime.  That is all that separated Florida State from their first appearance in the Elite Eight since 1993. […]

Although I don’t watch much basketball, I’m very happy for the Noles and Coach Hamilton. Perhaps some of the people that like to scream for his head all of the time will shut up now? Probably not, but for a program that will always be 2nd fiddle to the football team and viewed as a […]

It’s not often you see a smiling Leonard Hamilton after a game even when it is a win. But after a near perfect performance Hamilton had plenty of reason to grin from ear to ear after Florida State manhandled Notre Dame all game long in beating the Fighting Irish 71-57 to reach their first Sweet […]

When the pairing of Florida State and Texas A&M, two teams noted much more for their defensive prowess than their offensive capabilities, was announced last Sunday, fans and pundits quipped that the first team to fifty would win the game. That proved to prophetic. With 2:28 left in the game, Bernard James swatted away B.J. […]

I made it out to the Saturday blowout, but watched the Sunday game from the confines of headquarters. Tallahassee provides some of the most pleasant baseball weather you’ll find anywhere in the country, especially this time of the year. That will probably last about another 2-3 weeks and then it’ll be hazy, hot and […]

Now THAT’S  my kind of game! Scheduling has kept me away from the last few games down at Dick Howser Stadium, but last night was I was back and it was one of those nights that I love as an old-school baseball fan. I was never a fan of the 15-14 “gorillaball” scores, so a […]

What looked to a dagger of a shot to Virginia Tech turned out instead to be a dagger to Florida State. Derwin Kitchen’s jumper from inside the arc along the right baseline was a millisecond too late leaving his finger tips. Instead of a game winning shot that saw the FSU bench rush to Kitchen […]

Florida State has been invited to the Big Dance aka the NCAA tournament. Well, not officially anyway. But after holding off North Carolina State, 72-62, getting that highly valued eleventh conference win, the Selection Sunday show next week will just be a formality. The only suspense for FSU will be what number seed and where […]

Over his three years facing Georgia, Sean Gilmartin has made a habit of owning the Bulldogs. Friday night was no different as Gilmartin recorded a career high 11 strikeouts allowing just one hit and no runs over his eight innings of work. However, as brilliant as Gilmartin was, Brandon Johnson and Daniel Bennett were the […]
