in Sports/Top Headlines by

At this point, the names are not written in ink. Still, it’s easy to see why Jimbo Fisher chose to remain at Florida State. Once again, FSU is near the top of the rankings for high school recruits. According to the recruiting website 247sports.com, FSU is second in America (to Alabama) when it comes to this season’s recruits. The Seminoles have one five-star recruing and 17 four-stars.

in Sports/Top Headlines by

One more time, Dalvin Cook. Cook wrapped up the regular season of his junior year – expected to be his last – in a big way Saturday night.

In three games against the Gators, Cook had 480 yards. Cook had solid competition for this week’s award, most notably from Miami quarterback Brad Kaaya.…

Martin Dyckman: Hillary Clinton, Democrats must now live with futile victory, anachronism

in 2017 by

Late on the afternoon of Oct. 8, 1966, the Florida State University football team was trailing its archrival, the University of Florida, 19 to 22. With 26 seconds remaining, FSU quarterback Gary Pajcic threw a 45-yard pass to the visitors’ end zone. Lane Fenner, a wide receiver fresh off the bench, had outraced two Florida defenders and the nearest official. Newspaper photographs clearly showed Fenner scoring the game-winning touchdown, clutching the ball with one knee on the turf a yard…

in Sports/Top Headlines by

The replay board at Doak-Campbell Stadium summed it up perfectly. “Thank you, Dalvin.” Behind Dalvin Cook, again, the FSU Seminoles beat the Florida Gators, again. This time, it was 30-14, and once again, Cook led the way. In three games, Cook has rushed for 480 yards against the Gators who, presumably, are all in favor of Cook jumping to the NFL. “You’re blessed to coach certain guys in your career,” FSU coach Jimbo Fisher said. “What a dad gum great football player.”…

Despite Gators’ shortcomings, it’s still the FSU-Florida rivalry

Even though the Gators are missing seven defensive starters, it’s FSU-Florida. Even though the Gators are ranked only 102nd in the nation, it’s FSU-Florida. Even though FSU has won three straight, and five of the last six, it’s FSU-Florida. There are a lot of reasons to believe this won’t be a close game. Despite a disappointing season, FSU has Dalvin Cook and Deondre Francois. Demarcus Walker is second in the nation in sacks. Tavaris McFadden is first in interceptions. But…

Can Dalvin Cook find space and other questions about FSU-Florida

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Five questions to ponder about the FSU-Florida game. Can the FSU Seminoles run on the Gators? We’ll see. So far, Florida State has played three teams – Louisville, N.C. State and Boston College – who rank higher against the run than the Gators, who are  20th in the country. But those are just numbers. When healthy, this is the toughest defense the Seminoles have played. The thing is, Florida isn’t completely healthy. But teams seem to play harder in their rivalry…
