Maylock discusses FSU player's draft standing on eve of combine

Joyner - 1st round talent (note, didn't say he'd go there) Jernigan - if he's there when Chicago picks 14th, "I think you’d sprint to the podium" Benjamin - 17th to Ravens or 18th to Jets Brooks and Freeman - 3rd round talents Wilder - 4th or 5th round Talks of several other FSU draft prospects without specifying rounds.

Florida Transfer lands at 2014 opponent

Cody Riggs, following the same transfer path as Russell Wilson and Jacob Coker, will enroll at Notre Dame. Riggs just had to get one more stop at Doak Campbell after missing 2012's date due to injury. Riggs started at safety for the Gators this past season but is expected to return to corner for 2014.

Former FSU asst strength coach now Bears O-Line coach

Pat Meyer was an asst strength coach at FSU briefly, between being an asst at NC State then his alum of Colorado State. Think it was just 2007.

Trickett on a couple of his linemen

On Roderick Johnson: He said he’s looking forward to coming down here and having lots of fun with me. I didn’t want to break the news to him. On Chad Mavety: I waited until the papers got in and then I called him and told him he had to get a damn haircut.,0,

The Rejection of Myron Rolle

The NFL wanted him ... until he was named a Rhodes Scholar

Coaching movement not done

Apparently coaching turnover is not done - Pete Roussel is saying another 7-10 college assistants could move to the NFL, and there is an unusual number of open assistant positions at the college level. Apparently the cause of the latter is the hesitation by some coaches to fill positions before NSD with the fear that the assts leave for a better position between hire and NSD, messing up recruiting. Worth mentioning - he lists high profile guys still looking. Looked at it, and one could be on Fisher's list - Mike Ekeler. Ekeler and Fisher were on LSU's staff together.

Interesting graphic analysis of ACC schedule

Wanted to post the graphic itself, but something is malfunctioning for me. Highlights: More games against non-conference 2014 ESPN Way Too Early Top 25 and 2013 Top 25 teams than any other conference Tied with most non-conference games against 2013 bowl participants.

Pruitt's Alabama replacement steps down

Greg Brown, who took Pruitt's spot on the Bama coaching staff, is stepping down. Kirby Smart will shift back to coaching the secondary (been coaching LBs) and Kevin Steele returns to the Bama field staff as LB coach. Sounds if Brown is the scapegoat for Bama's secondary issues this year, not bringing along the Bama young corners quickly enough.

Red Lightning against Colin Cowherd in footrace

Looks like Red Lightning visited ESPN studios in Bristol, where Cowherd challenged him to a foot race.

Uncomfirmed report - Golden offered Penn State

Unconfirmed, but "sources" are saying Golden has been offered the Penn State job. Earlier today, Golden allegedly said of the Lions' job "it would be coming home".

A late ACC football coach firing/departure coming?

With the departure of Vad Lee, Georgia Tech's 2013 starting QB and biggest recent recruit, and loss to Ole Miss, could Johnson be on his way out? Lee's transfer may be indicative of issues GT deals with now rather than after 2014.

Pruitt enlists dad for Auburn planning

Fisher gives Pruitt three days off for Christmas, and Pruitt spends it reviewing Auburn film with his dad.


Could Winston break the Heisman repeat "curse"

Despite numerous juniors, three sophomores and now a second freshman, there has been only one repeat winner of the Heisman. Could Winston join Griffin as repeat winner? Recent winners of the award...

Add another Gator to the list leaving the ship - probably biggest name yet

Add Tyler Murphy, who graduated yesterday, to the list transferring. Started six games this season before spraining his shoulder. With Max Staver transferring as well, it leaves only two scholarship QBs returning next year. They'll add to that whoever they sign.

Award season

All the stirup on the Winston accusations distracted many FSU fans from paying attention to award finalists. Other than the Heisman, tonight's the night all the major individual awards are given. And FSU leads all teams in finalists Summarizing FSU's finalists, and predicted winners, according to the link Lou Groza for best placekicker - Aguayo one of three finalists, Aguayo predicted to win. Maxwell, player of the year - Winston a finalist Davey O'Brien, QBs - Winston predicted winner Jim Thorpe, best DB - Joyner a finalist Dave Rimmington, best center - Stork a finalist

Ready for "Blue-shirting"

Mostly an end-around applicable to the SEC, but if the ACC or NCAA adopts similar signing rules as the SEC ...

Coaches appear smarter than the media

Coaches turn at their All-ACC. FSU has majority of first team offense, four on first team defense, and Aguayo first team kicker

Women's soccer in national title game

Another FSU team will play for the national title, today, before the football team does. Think the telecast is in ESPNU at 3 ET

Family speaks

Reviewing the evidence like many of you, I thought maybe Winston has a defamation of character lawsuit against the alleged victim. Reading this, apparently so did a number of "high profile lawyers" who've approached the family. But in many ways, I think this whole incident showed the character of Jameis, in a mostly positive way. His focus, his confidence, the whole way he's handled it.


Coaching hiring/firing season has begun

Even though FSU is looking ahead to Duke this week, the hiring season is upon us. A year after losing six (or seven counting Napier), where does FSU stand in retaining coaches from a staff that...


Will the ACC miss a window to innovate

Latest data shows that in the 2nd quarter of this year, pay TV subscriptions dropped ~400K, continuing a trend. Right now, the analysis is that ESPN and HBO are pretty much propping up pay TV....


Setting the criteria to judge 2013 among all time FSU teams

Seen one mention by someone that this is the best FSU team they've ever seen. Probably a post-2000 fan, as certainly this is the best team since the 2000 team, at least. But what is the criteria to...

Carl Pelini resigns

Last time, several FSU assistants were rumored as candidates (none still with FSU). Not sure it is a place that would interest any defensive assistants, but would Brewster consider it?


Did the ACC end up doing FSU a huge favor with the schedule?

Going into the season, I loved the first half of the schedule - Monday night game with the next Saturday off to give the coaches time with the players following the first game (time to correct the...


Did FSU make a mistake in not extending Fisher's c

Last season FSU President Barron decided to not extend Fisher's contract one more year, a year that would have driven up the cost of a buyout after 2013. Will it cost FSU?

Mariota vs Winston for the Heisman

Two ESPN writers make their cases, and include a SportsNation poll. Vote early, vote often.
