    FSU vs. Miami 6-day optioned

    | No Comments | No TrackBacks
    The ACC just announced that FSU vs. Miami has been put on a six-day option.

    Here are the possibilities for the Nov. 12 game at Doak Campbell Stadium:

    Miami at Florida State, ABC, ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU, Noon, 3:30 or 8 p.m.

    FSU football pitches shut out? You know what that means

    | No Comments | No TrackBacks
    It's been a tradition at Florida State since 1993.

    Every time the Seminoles register a shut out on the football field, FSU Director of Baseball Operations Chip Baker delivers a baseball with a nail driven into it to the football coaches.

    After the 'Noles posted a 34-0 win over NC State this past weekend, here's a shot of the celebratory baseball marking the occasion -- with a little Halloween flavor:

    'Noles move up nationally in 13 statistical categories

    | No Comments | No TrackBacks

    Florida State fired on all cylinders in its 34-0 victory against NC State yesterday and the statistics certainly reflect the positives of the outcome.

    The Seminoles improved their national rankings in several categories at the conclusion of week nine of the 2011 college football season. Here is a breakdown of the statistical areas and the corresponding national rankings that changed for the better for the 'Noles:

    • Passing offense: from 14th (304.29) to 12th (306.38)
    • Total offense: from 38th (431.14) to 35th (432.75)
    • Rushing defense: from 6th (82.86) to 4th (77.00)
    • Pass efficiency defense: from 60th (128.40) to 37th (121.31)
    • Total defense: 12th (291.29) to 8th (275.63)
    • Scoring defense: 19th (19.29) to 12th (16.88)
    • Net punting: 9th (40.95) to 6th (40.96)
    • Punt returns: 53rd (8.55) to 50th (9.04)
    • Kickoff returns: 27th (24.05) to 25th (24.05)*
    • Turnover margin: 115th (-1.14) to 104th (-.75)
    • Pass defense: 39th (208.43) to 31st (198.63)
    • Passing efficiency: 14th (155.45) to 13th (156.85)
    • Sacks: 4th (3.57) to 3rd (3.63)

    *FSU didn't return any kicks against NC State but moved up two spots because of other teams.

    FSU vs. NC State headline contest

    | No Comments | No TrackBacks
    After Florida State wins, I let the fans decide on the headline for the official game recap. 

    After the Seminoles dismantled NC State 34-0, I received a ton of great ones. I ultimately went with @ShyMarcus headline of "'Noles make 'State'ment" but here's a look at some of the other really good ones:

    @BDohertyTSHQ1: "Seminoles Smack The Pack"

    @warobertson: "Noles smoke Tobacco Road Pack"

    @DjCrsroli: "FSU domesticates the Wolfpack 34-0!"

    @FSUReligionMan: "Wolfpack Speared! FSU on Fire!"

    @@mikecaz: "Noles 'State' case for bowl"

    @O_Dre_Simpson: "Wolfpack Sacked--Noles Shutout NC State 34-0"

    @TootsC4L: "Noles send the Wolf Pack-ing

    @V_Klunk: "For Halloween NC State was a punching bag"

    @Billygeezy: "Noles sack the Pack" or "A sheep in Wolf's clothing"

    ACC Week 9 Preview - FSU vs. NC State

    Jimbo Fisher talks Christian Ponder

    | No Comments | No TrackBacks

    During his weekly appearance on the ACC Coaches Conference Call this week, Florida State's Jimbo Fisher was asked about his former protege, Christian Ponder.

    Here is a transcript of the questions and Fisher's responses about the standout FSU quarterback who made his first career start for the Minnesota Vikings last weekend:

    Q. Christian Ponder created a stir with his first start in Minnesota, but can you talk about his mental makeup and did you notice a fearlessness?  


    Jimbo Fisher and Christian Ponder


    COACH FISHER: No doubt. The injuries he played with -- a couple years ago he played with two broken ribs. Matter of fact, NC State game, two years ago down here, broken them about second drive, played with no pain in the first half, we won a 45-42 game and won the game.  He played tremendous, played the whole year like that. Played with the elbow that was last year; the competitiveness, the toughness, the things it takes to win and gained the respect of your teammates. He's an ultimate competitor, extremely intelligent, prepares very well. He has all of the intangibles to be a very good player, and hopefully he'll continue to play well.

    Q. There seemed to be some questions about whether or not he deserved to be drafted as highly as he was. What did you tell teams, the NFL folks?  

    COACH FISHER: I thought he deserved to be that high, I really did. His arm strength is much better than people give credit for, great balance body control, can make decisions, process the information, lead, be tough. That's everything you want. The guy can do everything, he really can. And like I said before, and I don't mean it as a knock, one thing you have to remember with him at Florida State, the only drafted player he had ever played with on offense was Rodney Hudson there was never a skill guy around him that was drafted. That's not a knock. You put some first, second round guys around him as a quarterback and the numbers, and the pace he was going on before he got hurt in the eighth or ninth game of his junior year when he got hurt at Clemson, he was on pace for 4,000 yards and that's without a drafted guy around him. So I mean, we had a couple free agents make it, but the guy, he's going to be a very good player hopefully if he continues. He has all of the ability, there's no doubt.

    ROOKIE - Devonta Freeman, Florida State, RB, Fr., 5-8, 200, Miami, Fla.
    Freeman became the first true freshman running back at Florida State to string together consecutive 100-yard rushing performances when he gutted the Maryland defense for 100 yards on 11 carries (9.1 ypc), including a 41-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter, which matched the longest run from scrimmage by the Seminoles this season. Coming off a 109-yard performance at Duke, Freeman was instrumental in the Seminoles' second half dominance against the Terrapins, carrying seven times for 78 yards. FSU controlled the second half clock (17 minutes) by grinding out 198 yards on 29 carries.

    Christian Ponder to make first start

    | No Comments | No TrackBacks
    Reports have surfaced today that former Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder has been notified that he will make his first career start for the Minnesota VIkings this Sunday. 

    The Vikings have struggled this season under veteran quarterback Donovan McNabb and currently have a 1-5 record.

    Ponder replaced McNabb in the fourth quarter Sunday night in a loss to the Chicago Bears. The 12th pick in the 2011 NFL Draft threw for 99 yards and ran for eight.

    If the reports are true, Ponder has the tall task of taking on the undefeated and defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers this weekend. The game is at 4:15 and will air on FOX.

    #Road Warriors On The Move

    | No Comments | No TrackBacks
    We're back on the road and we started early this week, 5:30 a.m.  There's nothing like getting on the highway and being one of the only vehicles out there!  The great thing about leaving early is it's not even 9:30 and we're already in Georgia.  The Road Warriors expect to make it to South Carolina before lunch.  Not sure where we'll be, but if you know of any good South Carolina delicacies please let us know @Seminoles_com.  Don't forget the #Roadwarriors hash tag!  Hopefully we'll have some pics and stories for you along the way to Durham, N.C. Go Noles!

    Wide receiver injury updates

    | No Comments | No TrackBacks
    Tuesday night after practice, Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher gave some interesting updates on two wide receivers.

    Fisher said that junior Willie Haulstead is likely to redshirt this season. Haulstead has not played at all this year after sustaining a concussion at the final scrimmage of fall camp. Before Tuesday, Fisher had not made a specific comment on Haulstead.

    As for Haggins, it's the opposite story. After suffering a broken hand in the loss to Oklahoma, Haggins is set to return to action this Saturday at Duke. 

    Through three games this year, Haggins is tied for fourth on the team with 11 catches.

    The Road Warriors arrived at BB&T Field earlier this morning for today's FSU vs. Wake Forest matchup.

    Here's a look at the Seminoles' locker room:

    The Road Warriors have officially arrived at BB&T Field in Winston-Salem, and are ready to get going.  We'll be heading down to the field in about an hour, so make sure you stay tuned for a complete pregame report with @ScottKotick and @BrandonMellor.

    We're just four hours away from kickoff and we can't wait!  Go 'Noles!

    #RoadWarriors Update: 5:20 p.m.

    | No Comments | No TrackBacks
    The Road Warriors are nearing closer to our final destination in Greensboro, NC and the weather is starting to get great here.

    We'll have plenty more updates as the evening progresses as we head to a great BBQ restaurant for dinner and get ready for the big game tomorrow as the Noles take on Wake Forest.

    Everyone excited for the game?  We sure are!  Go 'Noles!

    #RoadWarriors Update: 10/7/11 4 p.m.

    | No Comments | No TrackBacks

    The Road Warriors are cruising along. We are getting closer to Charlotte and then our eventual destination of Greensboro where the official team hotel is located.

    As of 4 p.m., we have about 160 miles to go so the real question now is: where should we eat? More specifically, what BBQ place should we visit?

    The team hotel is located near the Greensboro Airport so anything in the general area would work. So, 'Noles fans, what do you think?

    #RoadWarriors Update: 10/7/11 1:50 p.m.

    The Road Warriors are getting close to South Carolina. We just stopped at Publix on the outskirts of Gwinnett County and picked up some delicious subs.

    We have seen quite a few Seminoles on the road so far and hope to see more as we press on.

    Stay tuned for more updates!

    #RoadWarriors Update: 10/7/11 10:05 a.m.

    | No Comments | No TrackBacks

    The FSU Road Warriors (Twitter hashtag #RoadWarriors) are on the open road once again as we head to Winston-Salem, NC for Florida State's game against Wake Forest.

    We rolled out of Tallahassee this morning at 7:15 a.m. following a quick breakfast at the Chick-fil-A on Thomasville Road. We are sticking to the main highways on this trip so that means we are going through southwest Georgia to I-75 and around Atlanta and then to I-85. 

    A trip up the Georgia-Florida Parkway a little earlier meant one thing: a stop at Stripling's for some of their famous beef jerky.

    417315286.jpg

    We are currently on I-75 headed north. An upcoming pit stop at the Nike Factory Store in Locust Grove is on the agenda. We will then stop for lunch somewhere northeast of Atlanta so if you have any suggestions, let me know.

    You can follow along here at the blog or on Twitter at @Seminoles_com or @BrandonMellor.

    With the Pentathlon and the Garnet and Gold meet already under our belts, the Florida State Swimming and Diving team's season has officially kicked off!  These two meets really encourage the team and allow us to really get pumped up for the upcoming season.  The pentathlon is first, which is where everyone on the team swims the 50 freestyle, 100 breastroke, 100 backstroke, 100 butterfly and 200 freestyle.  It is a really enjoyable, team meet that brings everyone together as there are some people who can only do the 50 freestyle for example, but they are really working so hard for the team in every other event.  It is great to see everyone working hard not only for themselves but for each other.  The Garnet and Gold meet is where the team is divided into two teams and we race the dual meet schedule.  It creates a really great atmosphere between the two teams and creates an even greater atmosphere at the end when we all come back together for the Florida State cheer!

    The weekend of the Oklahoma football game (9/24/11) was a great weekend to be a Seminole.  The swimmers and coaches tailgated at the pool with the recruits that we had in town.  It was a lot of fun where we jumped off the diving boards, lounged in the pool, played corn hole and ate some great food catered by PoBoys.  We all enjoyed each other's company after a great workout in the pool! We got a tan and relaxed before a football game that will never be forgotten! The energy that was created in Doak Campbell Stadium was incredible and it was great to stand with the swim team enjoying this memorable moment together.  After a fantastic weekend of workouts, tailgating at the pool and watching a nail biting football game, it is a great time to be a Seminole!

    The ladies travelled to Miami this past weekend to face ACC rival Miami and also Florida Gulf Coast's swim team.  It was great to have the girl's team together.  We posted some great times and I think we were pleasantly surprised with where we are following a hard week of training.  It was really exciting and this has pumped us all up for the rest of the reason.

    The whole team leaves for the All Florida Invite in Gainesville this Thursday.  It will be awesome to have the whole team together for the first away meet of the season.  Be sure to stop by Morcom the following weekend (10/14/11 and 10/1511) as the two meets we will be swimming cover the Senior Meet and our Gold Letter meet while we race LSU on Friday afternoon (3pm) and Alabama and South Carolina Saturday morning (11am).  Be sure to check out all of our results on Seminoles.com!
