Auburn Considers Pretending It Won Another Four National Championships


What if Auburn actually has nine national championships in its storied history? All it takes to claim a title is to believe it.

Swofford talks about possible changes for ACC title game


If given his way Swofford says the ACC would consider having the two teams with the best record in the ACC play for the conference championship, not necessarily the division champions. Which means this season Florida State would have played Clemson instead of Duke, and last year Florida State and Clemson would have met again rather than the Seminoles facing a 6-6 Georgia Tech squad.

Interesting spin from Deadspin on a Winston story


story has the headline: Why I Believe Jameis Winston's Accuser however, the story that she posted on her site on dec. 5 (titled "My rape") doesn't mention Winston until the ninth paragraph. Deadspin picked up her story and rewrote the first sentence to include Winston.


Gator jokes, GIFs, pics and more (please add yours)

I was looking for a repository of pics to share with friends. Instead of saving them on the phone and texting them to three different groups, I figured I'd put them all in one place. Please add to...

FSU gets the hilarious Taiwanese animation treatment


Florida fans are getting ready for one of the biggest rivalries of the year as No. 3 FSU hosts No. 7 Miami in Tallahassee on Saturday at Doak Campbell Stadium. FSU quarterback Jameis Winston has described the game as a battle of brothers. "It's a brotherly game," Winston told press with a smile. "It's just like we're going to be in the backyard, playing against each other. We want to beat our brother and if they want to be big brother, we want to be the little brother, it's still a friendly competition. It's going to be a battle." The game is set to be broadcast over ABC and ESPN's College GameDay will also be on campus in Tallahassee. This game is the first time since 2004 that both schools have been ranked in the top 10. Miami has won four of the last six meeting in Tallahassee. Florida State redshirt freshman quarterback Jameis Winston has been phenomenal this year. The Heisman hopeful has tossed for 2,177 yards and 23 touchdowns with four interceptions. He's rushed for 126 yards and three touchdowns as well. He's second in the nation in passing efficiency at 207.0. The Hurricanes will look to sophomore running back Duke Johnson. Johnson has gained 823 yards on the ground on 122 tries with six touchdowns. Johnson's status was in question after a head injury sustained against North Carolina, but those were put to rest last week in their unimpressive win over Wake Forest. Who will win the game Saturday? The Noles or the Canes.

Duke building a staff of NFL coaches


Steelers' wide receivers coach Scottie Montgomery has left the staff to rejoin David Cutcliffe's staff at Duke. Coaches have now left Sean Payton, Nick Saban, Eric Mangini, and Mike Tomlin to join Cutcliffe's staff at Duke. Think about that.

2013 coaching staff vis-à-vis recruiting

I think it's a safe assumption that FSU is going to have some coaching turnover after the 2012 season, regardless of the final record. I think this staff/program has been built for a run at the...

Pre-Snap Read's Year in Review for Florida St.


Florida State’s where it is today, knocking on the door of a title run, for one reason: because the Alabama board of trustees vetoed Fisher move to Birmingham.

Arrington Jenkins, a redshirt freshman linebacker from Miami, was arrested Saturday on a charge of vehicle grand theft. Should remind everyone that a scooter or other motor vehicle also qualifies here under the statute. This could also be a simple case in which he normally had permission to use the vehicle, then got in an argument with the owner of the vehicle, who then reported it stolen while Jenkins was riding or in possession. That scenario is not all that uncommon, actually. As always, we'll await the facts. An arrest is just an arrest. It doesn't mean Jenkins did anything wrong. To make a judgment on this either way is dumb at this point. Jenkins allegedly told the TPD "Anyone who leaves a motorcycle out in the open should expect to have it stolen." Judgement no longer reserved.

The Stoops Brothers Are Wanted Men


Mark is entrenched at a premier program, not to mention a program, led by Jimbo Fisher, that would love to retain his services. Florida State has national title aspirations, and bringing Mark back as coordinator helps further that goal — continuity, especially with this young team, is good for business.

Dinich to FSU: You're on upset alert

Duke 35, Florida State 34: Duke will do exactly what Wake Forest did, and beat the Seminoles with their passing game and their discipline. Duke didn’t allow a turnover or a sack in its come-from-behind road win over FIU. Florida State has made a habit out of untimely penalties, and had five turnovers in the loss to Wake Forest. Duke has a chance to catch the Noles when they’re down, and David Cutcliffe will make sure they do.

Rashad Greene added to 2011 Biletnikoff Award watch list
