Podcast: On celebrity CFB players and the media


Ingram Smith, Bud Elliott, Mark Ennis and Lucas Jackson discuss the changing way the college football media covers celebrities.


Welcome back to our weekly college football gambling column. It's called COLLEGE FOOTBALL GAMBLING. Today, let's talk about the second of five power conferences: the Big 12.

Appreciating the indoor facility


"Miami is three-for-three in lightning delays this camp. So far, UM’s three practices have been delayed for 40, 90 and today, 40 minutes. Everyone will be happy when practices move to the morning full-time next week; it’s usually less stormy at that time. UM AD Blake James has said a practice bubble or indoor facility is a long-term goal."

Canes Watch. Remember when FSU missed almost every practice before the 2007 Clemson game? And how bad the team looked in that opening game? An indoor practice facility is a big deal in an age in which teams, by rule, must leave the practice fields when lightning is within some huge radius.

I personally think this looks great. You?

FSU mailing season tickets soon


What do you think of the season tickets?

FSU finalist for 5-star 2016 QB


Malik Henry is very high on Florida State, but UCLA will not be easy to beat.

George Campbell news for FSU fans?


With it looking like Tarpon Springs (Fla.) East Lake 5-star athlete George Campbell will be making a decision sooner rather than later, an interesting note happened today.

Ryan Bass, who works for Brighthouse Sports (the network that does the interview announcements for many of the Tampa-area kids), picked him to go to Florida State on 247 this morning. Given his access to Campbell, Bass' pick is something to pay attention to. Of course, he was also wrong on Ray Ray McCloud (picked UF over Clemson).

Info: Fan day, open practice, poster


The following information on Florida State's fan day, open practice and poster was released by the school Wednesday.

Vegas: Just how likely is another national title?

Florida State football preview podcast


Allen Kenny of Blatant Homerism had me on to discuss the Seminoles.

A different looking freshman class


This is the sort of class that, if it pans out, can keep FSU head and shoulders above the ACC for a while.

Florida State football coach salaries


I should have filed a public records request on this, but did not. Overall, the assistants are making $3.375M. This will go up in 2015, as FSU will have to pay Sal Sunseri more, because his buyout money from Tennessee will be running out (I think).

Jesus "BoBo" Wilson enters plea deal


As expected at the time of his arrest for scooter theft, sophomore receiver Jesus "BoBo" Wilson plead down to a lesser charge Thursday. Wilson plead no contest for petit theft and criminal mischief. Paid $1074 in restitution, 30 jail work camp days (other outlets reported "hours," but the penalty apparently is days, so Etters was correct in his reporting) and one year probation. He has been working out with the team and participating in all team activities, and was never expected to be dismissed or anything close to that, despite rumor mongering from some in the media. Sources indicate that Wilson will likely face some form of discipline or punishment from the team.

Jameis Winston volunteers at local community center. Again.


Winston actually does this quite a bit. But this won't get many clicks. Repeat volunteer.
