How might the Penn State shockwaves affect college football in the future?

Prepared to be a minority of one, but .... (UPDATE: Strip and score) (UPDATE II -- the rule book)

(EDIT: Monday 10:45 a.m. OK, I finally got the rule book thanks to a link in the front page story on officiating. It has caused me to finally be able to take a position on the "strip and score." To...


Coach Fisher's flawed logic on QB situation

Lots of FSU candidates -- Charlie Ward, Ron Simmons and Peter Warrick heading the list. Not sure if Ron Sellers pro career would be classified as a bust or not.

Who should host the ACC football championship game?


Ahhhhh. The warmth of spring is upon us with the dog days of summer just around the corner. These sunny days remind me so much of the ACC Football Championship game in Charlotte. (Needle scratch...


I'm so glad TN can provide ESPN story ideas ....

Here are some excerpts from a recent ESPN inside story on FSU:   The Florida State Seminoles were sitting at something of a crossroads coming into the 1987 campaign. The Noles had posted a 7-4-1...


Urgent advice for Auburn fans planning to watch game on TV

I'm an author on the FSU SBNation site who always grew up hating the Tide, so I've decided to come over and wish y'all luck. But more importantly, I want you to be prepared for what you could be...


A downside of the UF job?

I'm offering this not as a belief, but as a theory -- which is a fancy way of saying, I could be wrong. Here's what I'm wondering ... well, first, I consider it a given that the University of...

I promise you, as a North Carolinian, none of you feel any worse about this game than I do. It will be a painful morning at church and week at work (expect 2-15-1 to be said by me about 100 times...


A few thoughts about the forest

In the middle of a football season, it's very, very easy to get caught up in the trees. How come Ponder's stats are down? Why can we run some games and not others? How will we stop Russell...



I can remember the last 34 meetings with Miami. I think this one ranks No. 3 for me, behind the 1993 win and the "Dexter Carter" win over what was one of Miami's best teams. Some thoughts on...

This will come nowhere to matching Frank's indefatigable treatise story on the 1965 FSU-Oklahoma game, but it is another humble foray into Seminole history tied to this week's opponent, Oklahoma. F...


Historical FSU videos on Youtube

I may be the last person to have come across these, but there are some fascinating historical videos popping up on Youtube that are FSU related. Here is a video of the 1964 FSU-UGA game in Athens. ...
