Florida legislators file resolutions honoring Winston, FSU

State Rep. Marti Coley (R-Marianna) has filed a resolution in the Florida House of Representatives (HR 9003) commending Florida State University quarterback Jameis Winston for his "outstanding...

WSU Coach Mike Leach drops post game F-bomb

1

Apparently Idaho Coach Paul Petrino took exception to the treatment his Vandals received in a 42-0 shutout at the hands of Leach's Cougars. For grins I will now pay special attention to the post game handshake between Petrino and Coach Jimbo Fisher when Idaho visits Doak on November 23.

Nick Saban underpaid? Maybe.

2

Success on the football field at Alabama is fueling growth in applications, admissions and dollars. While the age-old debate continues on "how much is too much" in terms of compensation for a football coach, Nick Saban's agent could make a case that his client is underpaid.

The Paterno family just doesn't get it

+

The family of the late Penn State football coach Joe Paterno has released their own report on the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Their report, complete with an accompanying website, is critical of the Freeh report that formed the basis for the NCAA sanctions against Penn State. Apparently no one in the family has ever heard the axiom "when you find yourself in a hole, stop digging."

Baton Rouge newspaper columnist says LSU should consider a jump from the SEC to the Big XII

9

Here's a switch, someone advocating a possible defection FROM the Southeastern Conference. It's not likely to happen, but it's noteworthy because it's the first time anyone has advocated considering a move from the SEC. Historically the league hasn't been too worried about defections, evidenced by the lack of a buyout for conference teams. The ACC has a $50 million buyout fee, the SEC buyout is $0.

The first poll for 2013

19

Talk about "way too early." The website nationalchampions.net released their view of next season's Top 25. Continued good news for Alabama fans as the website has them at Number 1. The news is also good for FSU as the number 15 ranking appears more reasonable than those of recent seasons. For what it's worth, click the link for entire Top 25 poll.

Phil Steele's strength of schedule rankings

2

Kansas played the toughest schedule in America in 2012 according to Phil Steele. The Florida State schedule, which Seminoles fans concede was not a strong one, came in at number 58 in the rankings. Steele gives special praise to the University of Florida for posting an 11-1 record against the fourth most difficult schedule in the nation.

Bjoern Werner named to Associated Press All-American team

4

Heisman trophy winner Johnny Manziel is the headliner for the A.P. All-American team announced today. On the defensive side of the football, Florida State defensive end Bjoern Werner has received All-American recognition. Werner is one of only two players from the ACC to make the elite squad. Sadly, placekicker Dustin Hopkins was not named to the team. Instead the honor went to Tulane kicker Cairo Santos.

Demand cools for UF tickets as season approaches

25

Before the 2010 season FSU attendance issues were the subject of much media attention. At the time UF looked impenetrable. Certainly the ship has not yet been fully righted in Tallahassee, but who would have predicted two years ago that UF would be experiencing slow ticket sales? It is amazing what 11 losses in two years can do to a team's fortunes. (Yeah, I'm heartbroken.)
