Ponder will be eligible for April's NFL Draft and will have his MBA degree in hand after the spring semester. But Ponder said on Thursday that he's pretty set on returning for his senior season. Ponder has access to the opinion of the NFL college advisory committee that provides underclassmen with a general evaluation of where they will go in the draft "I'll take an evaluation after the season and see what's up," he said. "But I think I pretty much have my mind set unless something crazy happens." That means coming back? "Yeah. I think so," he said.

Ponder & Datko win ACC player of the week accolades!

1

Ponder wins offensive back, Datko offensive line of the week. 3 Clemson kids - Spiller, Parker & McDaniel take away other awards. Both Ponder and the offensive line are well-deserving of the awards. Also, Rod Owens should get some sort of honorable mention.

Steve Ellis' take on tonight's game and recruiting.

Nice article on tonight's game and the possible impact on recruiting. I think the damage is done. Even if we win tonight, recruits aren't going to be lining up to sign with us in Feb. Fisher & Co. have their toughest job ahead of them yet in preventing what potentially could be a disastrous recruiting class.

There is hope!

There is still hope for FSU to win the ACC Atlantic Division. Ok, so it's a slim hope. Especially given our offensive defensive performance over the last couple weeks. However, during these dark...

Facebook Group - Rebl Against the Blackout

5

"GARNET AND GOLD! These are the colors that everyone should be wearing at the game this Saturday against Georgia Tech. Whiteout, Blackout, they are all gimics and NEVER work unless we are playing some terrible team like Duke. (and lost to USF in white). Our black uniform/BlackOut record is a miserable 1-2. Go against the gimics and trendy bullshit and stick to tradition. Tradition and Bobby Bowden has been what won us 2 National Championships, all the way sporting the traditional GARNET AND GOLD. So put away the black outfits and wear the true Seminole colors to the game." Truly, a case of the blind leading the blind.

Here is a preview of what will happen if FSU loses to GT this weekend.

Here is a preview of what will happen if FSU loses to GT this weekend.

True Freshman Jajuan Harley slated to start at rover against BC.

12

Looks like the embarrassment on the defensive side of the ball may have prompted Mickey Andrews to abandon his propensity for starting seniors over more talented players. Diehards will recall that Harley made all kinds of noise in pre-season camp and is one of the fastest and most physically impressive players on the team. Unfortunately, he had a mystery medical issue that caused the coaches to hold him back some. I wonder if Harley would have started earlier in the Miami game if he had been healthy.

ALL of FSU's defensive tackles back at practice!

2

This is great news. However, this isn't to imply they are healthy.

Greg Reid and Rodney Hudson named ACC players of the week!!!

3

Jacorry Harris picked up QB of the week. Congrats Greg & Rodney!!!

DeMonte McAllister sighting!

8

This sounds like he's expected to get some playing time due to the depth issues. I know some are of the opinion that he should be redshirted and is not ready to play. However, I trust the evaluations of Pete Carroll and Tommy Tuberville and say that this guy should get some playing time. I do think we need to make a decision about whether some of our guys will be playing DT or DE (McAllister & Dawkins) and STICK WITH IT!

BYU a touchdown favorite over FSU!

17

Not that this is that much of a surprise given the first two games. I just hope our boys show up ready to play. Also, UM is a 4 point favorite over GT. FSUncensored: To me, this is a surprise. I figured 9 or maybe 10. Vegas either doesn't buy BYU (probably), thinks FSU is much better than they played against Jax State, or both. This line reminds me of the suspiciously low line against BC in 2007 when FSU beat the #2 team in the country in Chestnut Hill.

MA's Prowler formation; FSU played seven true freshmen!

8

Maybe MA should abandon experimenting with the defensive formations. The new "Prowler" formation led to one of UM's TD drives. Doh! Seven true freshmen saw playing time (six in the 1st half) including Dustin Hopkins, Greg Reid, Jacobbi McDaniel, Willie Haulstead, Brandon Jenkins, Jajuan Harley and Chris Thompson.

Brad Nessler & Todd Blackledge part of Labor Day announcers. Thoughts?

I like Brad Nessler (I think) but I know I can't stand Blackledge - he's a hack in the booth. Miami Herald article also dicusses the competition at kicker. I suspect that's because UM fans continue to live in the past...

Seminole Boosters printing propaganda to boost ticket sales.

5

Jerry Kutz, Vice President of Marketing and Communications for Seminole Boosters, wrote a special to the Democrate titled "FSU's offense is explosive and imaginative." You better hope you're right Mr. Kutz because the defense will probably be implosive, unimaginative and lacking depth.

Says his leaders are UF, FSU & UGA. He plans to attend Seminole Showtime.

2009 ACC outlook from ThaRinger

+

Notables: LIke most on TN, ThaRinger has FSU only winning 7 or 8 games. I think we will overachieve, but 7 or 8 wins are very likely. Canes achieving 8 wins also seen as a success. (!) GT, WF, & BC have issues and won't likely match their '08 win totals. VT, Duke & Clemson expected to win more than games in '09 than '08. Clemson predicted to have ACC championship aspirations!!!
