Just in case you haven’t noticed that link up there on the Daily Chop… 1 of FSU’s National Championship crystal footballs was recovered. For further information check out The Daily Chop, or the Tallahassee Democrat’s Article.
Here’s a great Q&A with former Seminole Running Back Nick Maddox over at Seminoles.com The Women’s Volleyball Team beat USF last night 3 games to 1. I had originally planned to be there to get photos, but couldn’t make it. I will get to a couple of them soon! The Women’s Soccer Team is ready [...]
The NCAA has proven, beyond a doubt that they have no clue. They are a knee-jerk-reaction bunch, that created all of the current Native American Problems. Check out this Palm Beach Post article here. A measure against Native American nicknames FAILED 18-2 when brought to a vote at the OKLAHOMA Seminole Tribal Council. Hey NCAA… [...]

I realize this isn’t sports related, but hey… FSU gets to brag about something other sports once in a while too. They are now the home to the world’s largest magnet!
