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 […]

I rarely use eBay for anything other than entertainment purposes. It’s a wealth of stupid stuff. Here are a few of the items I found recently for our beloved Seminoles. Item #1: The “Michigan Seminoles” hat. Like @JonLoesche said on Twitter, “I guess we still own that state from our last trip to Ann Arbor?” […]

Football, Baseball, Men’s & Women’s Basketball. These four FSU sports are the only sports that currently charge admission to attend their games. Generally, the prices are reasonable. Baseball is $6 for a single game, and it’s way less than that for a season ticket package (more like $4 to have grandstand seats, even less for […]

Most regular readers know I’m tough on the Seminole Booster program. I’ve “put them on blast” time and time again. I’ve suggested they be replaced by a stock program, I’ve begged for their transparency, and I’ve compared them to a well-funded, influential political lobby group.  You can say I am not a fan. Yet, I […]

(Guest post by Jordi Scrubbings of The Serious Tip.) First of all, I want to wish a speedy recovery to NoleCC. I can’t imagine how painful it feels to take a softball to the face. Ouch. Get well soon, dude. I want to drop a quick post before today’s game to congratulate FSU for taking […]

(Guest post by Jordi Scrubbings of The Serious Tip.) For those of us who remember those long ago days when the Seminoles ruled the gridiron, we remember the connection between Florida State and Cretin-Derham Hall, a private high school in St. Paul, Minnesota. Cretin-Derham was the high school of Chris Weinke, field general of the […]

ChantRant posed an interesting question this morning about How much access to the FSU Athletic Department should the media have?  It stemmed from the original article at the Columbus Dispatch regarding a vague federal law called FERPA protecting a student’s privacy. Thoughts that come to mind: What is the definition of media in this case? […]

From the Alumni Association email:   FLORIDA STATE RESPONDS TO NCAA SANCTIONS TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State University officials said today that they are pleased that the National Collegiate Athletic Association’s Committee on Infractions accepted the findings of its investigative committee and acknowledged that nearly all of the penalties self-imposed by the university were appropriate. […]

FSU Thoughts: The baseball team will get better as the year goes on. I’m thankful Mike Martin doesn’t have a weekly call in show, just because Bowden’s and Hamilton’s are so boring. Someone should fix the right field foul pole at Dick Howser Stadium, the L is supposed to line up with the top of […]

Hey everyone, I’ve been on vacation eating my slacker jacks, so here’s a bunch of info and some thoughts about FSU sports. Walter Dix is the fastest man alive. Okay, well he’s one of the fastest if not THE fastest, but in Beijing he might be the fastest and win the gold, considering he beat […]
