FSU’s Dalvin Cook still should emulate ex-Nole Warrick Dunn

in Sports/Top Headlines by

A little advice for Dalvin Cook. When it comes to Warrick Dunn, perhaps he should keep chasing. Cook surpassed Dunn’s school record at Florida State for rushing Saturday – shattered the record, he did – in a victory over Syracuse. It was even more impressive that it took him less than three seasons to break the marks that Dunn set in four. Cook now has 4,166 yards to Dunn’s 3,959 yards. (Cook has carried the ball 38 more times than…

Five things to wonder about in the FSU-Syracuse game

in Sports/Top Headlines by

Five things to wonder about the FSU-Syracuse game on Sunday: Does Syracuse stand a chance? It wouldn’t appear so. The Orangemen have struggled defensively all season, and with Deondre Francois and Dalvin Cook coming to town, things don’t get easier. Cook is the seventh-leading rusher in the nation. Francois is the 25th-ranked passer, and the top-rated freshman passer, in the country. Syracuse has stayed even with some teams on its way to a 4-6 record, but quarterback Eric Dungey (the…

in Sports/Top Headlines by

On the season, Flowers is one of two players in the nation with 2,000 yards passing and 1,000 rushing. He is 12th in the nation in rushing and 48th in passing. For his efforts, Flowers…

FSU takes big win over Boston College with five touchdown passes

in Sports/Top Headlines by

It was supposed to be this easy all along. By design, FSU was supposed to blow opponents away … the way they did Boston College Friday night in a 45-7 victory. They were supposed roll up 416 yards offensively … the way they did against the Eagles. Their defense was supposed to stifle the opposition … as they did when they held Boston College to 146 yards of offense. The Seminoles had their way with the Eagles Sunday night, holding Boston College…

Will FSU’s Dalvin Cook be among most talented not to win Heisman?

in Sports/Top Headlines by

He has more than 1,000 yards … again. He is averaging more than six yards a carry … again. He has more than 10 touchdowns … again. So why does Dalvin Cook seem to be an afterthought in the Heisman conversation? Oh, Cook, the talented running back of the FSU Seminoles, gets mentioned … eventually. But long after Louisville’s Lamar Jackson and Clemson’s Deshaun Watson. And perhaps that’s as it should be. Jackson and Watson are very good players for…
