    ACC's brand presence key in Pinstripe Bowl deal

    | No Comments | No TrackBacks

    Florida State may never play in the Pinstripe Bowl, but that doesn't mean Tuesday's announcement by the Atlantic Coast Conference has nothing directly to do with the 'Noles.

    The ACC's multi-year agreement with the New York Yankees and New Era to annually compete against the Big Ten in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl isn't just about creating a post-season agreement between two conferences in a unique venue; it's about brand exposure.

    By agreeing to play a bowl game inside Yankee Stadium from 2014 to 2019, the ACC ensures itself a presence in one of the world's largest markets and with one of sport's most well-known names in the Yankees. Starting in 2014, there will also be ACC signage down the third-base line and in rotation behind home plate for all Yankees home games. More signage, more brand awareness.

    The deterioration of the Big East and Syracuse and Pittsburgh's deflection to the ACC, coupled with Tuesday's news, means the league is in prime position to gain fans in the northeast that it never had before.

    So, how does this relate to FSU? Simple: more notoriety for the ACC means more exposure and revenue-generating opportunities for its programs in the future. FSU already has a recruiting presence in the northeast as it recruits New Jersey frequently but an increased league presence in New York could also lead to additional recruiting chances and opportunities with prospects the 'Noles might not have had in the past.

    Here's a panoramic shot of the interior of FSU's new indoor practice facility, which is currently undergoing turf installation. Check later this afternoon for video and more photos of the 'Noles' new practice facility.

    FSU's Corey Williams named head coach at Stetson

    | No Comments | No TrackBacks
    Former Florida State men's basketball assistant coach Corey Williams has been named the new head men's basketball coach at Stetson, the school officially announced during a 2:30 press conference today.

    Williams has been on Leonard Hamilton's FSU staff since the 2007-08 season. Since then, the 'Noles have compiled a 132-72 combined record during Williams' six-seasons stint in Tallahassee -- including one ACC Championship.

    Williams is the second assistant coach under Hamilton to earn a head coaching job in the last three seasons, joining Andy Enfield, who took the top job at FGCU in 2011. Enfield is now the head coach at USC after last season's remarkable NCAA Tournament run by the Eagles.

    It's "fun with maps" time here at and what better way to visualize this great country of ours than to map out the hometowns of every returning scholarship student-athlete on the 2013 FSU football roster? That's right; there is no better way.

    Here's a look at where the 2013 'Noles call home:
