No. 16 Florida State (8-3, 5-3 ACC) and the Florida Gators (6-5, 3-5 SEC) are set to face off in a Friday primetime matchup in Tallahassee, with each team looking to add a solid momentum mover in the regular season finale. FSU comes into the game with an outside chance at making the Orange Bowl (should Clemson make the College Football Playoff) and a blowout win over one rival already under its belt. Meanwhile, Florida has had a roller coaster of a year that kicked off with an upset win at home vs. Utah but only two wins vs. SEC East competition. The team’s most recent loss, a head-scratcher to the Vanderbilt Commodores, highlighted a good majority of the issues that have plagued the Gators all season long. On this week’s episode of the Line of Scrimmage (where each week we give you insight into Florida State’s opponents from those in the know) we spoke with Richard Johnson of Split Zone Duo, Sports Illustrated, and SEC Network. What has Billy Napier been focused on as he looks to establish himself in Gainesville? What does Anthony Richardson bring to the table for the Gators’ offense and what are his weak points? How will Friday play out? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
The Florida State Seminoles football team has shown vast improvement on the field, and it’s being noticed by recruits, including their latest commitment, four-star quarterback Brock Glenn, a flip from Ohio State. The 6’2, 195 pound Glenn attends Lausanne Collegiate School in Memphis, and has a four-star rating from the 247 Sports Composite List. The sites consider him the 378th best player in his class (22nd best QB and 12th best player in Tennessee). Norvell leaned hard on his Memphis connections when recruiting Glenn and his family, and the Seminole staff kept in contact with the gunslinger despite his verbal commitment to OSU. That persistence paid off in a big way today, as the ‘Noles finally have their QB for #Tribe23. Glenn, who officially visited Florida State in June, also checked out the Auburn Tigers and TCU Horned Frogs, before eventually choosing Ohio State. He holds 30+ offers from teams such as the Cincinnati Bearcats, Duke Blue Devils, Illinois Fighting Illini, Indiana Hoosiers, Kansas Jayhawks, Kentucky Wildcats, LSU Tigers, Michigan State Spartans, Minnesota Gophers, Mississippi State Bulldogs, Missouri Tigers, Oklahoma State Cowboys, Pittsburgh Panthers, Virginia Cavaliers, and Virginia Tech Hokies. The Three Stars got together for another instant reaction edition of the Florida State of Recruiting podcast to discuss the 2022 quarterback commitment. On this episode, we break down FSU’s newest addition to #Tribe23 and what he can bring to the Seminole QB room. But the fun does not stop there, as we give our thoughts on how the class could finish, while discussing future recruiting ramifications, as well, with a strong finish to the season. The Florida State of Recruiting (FSoR) Podcast features the Three Stars: Josh Pick, Tim Alumbaugh, and David Stout.

Florida State Seminoles football, a week out from a primetime rivalry matchup vs. the Florida Gators, took care of business against the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns to move to 8-3 (5-3 ACC) on the season. It was FSU’s fourth-straight victory of 25-plus points, a run that has solidified the team with two games left on the docket — next Friday and the Seminoles’ eventual postseason destination. Florida has had an up-and-down first season under new head coach Billy Napier. After upsetting Utah to start the season to earn a No. 12 ranking, the Gators dropped games to Kentucky and Tennessee to stumble out of the rankings and have struggled to find a consistent level of play from an offense led by preseason potential first-round pick Anthony Richardson. What has led to FSU's win streak? What can we expect from the Seminoles vs. Gators matchup? Max Escarpio and Jon Marchant break it down on this week's episode of the Seminole Wrap.

No. 19 Florida State (8-3, 5-3 ACC) took care of business against the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns on Saturday, dominating the Sun Belt opponent to the point that backups were able to enter the game early in the third quarter. They took a 49-17 victory behind phenomenal performances from the starting defense and rushing offense. It was FSU’s fourth straight blowout win, giving the Seminoles eight total on the year just two seasons removed from a 3-6 debut season for Mike Norvell. After the game, Norvell, Fabien Lovett, Treshaun Ward, DJ Lundy, and Robert Scott spoke on the team’s performance and thoughts ahead of next week’s rivalry matchup vs. the Florida Gators.

No. 19 Florida State Seminoles football (7-3, 5-3 ACC) is getting set to take on the Lousiana Ragin’ Cajuns (5-5, 3-4 Sun Belt) this Saturday inside Doak Campell Stadium, the penultimate game of the 2022 season. Louisiana, in its first year under Michael Desormeaux after the departure of Billy Napier last season, has fought to work its way back to consistency. They went 2-2 in both September and October, right now 1-1 in the month of November after beating Georgia Southern last weekend. On this week’s episode of the Line of Scrimmage (where each week we give you insight into Florida State’s opponents from those in the know) we spoke with Josh Jagneaux of Ragin’ Review hopped on the Line of Scrimmage podcast. What has led to Louisiana’s inconsistent 2022? What does Desormeaux bring to the table as coach? Who are the names to know on the Ragin’ Cajuns roster? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Florida State Seminoles football, after a third straight blowout vs. an ACC opponent, finished with its best record in conference play since 2016 on Saturday, advancing to 7-3 (5-3 ACC) on the season. No. 20 FSU has shaken off a midseason three-game losing streak to set itself up to finish nicely with just two games remaining on the schedule — the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns (5-5, 3-4 Sun Belt), who are coming off a 36-17 win over the Georgia Southern Eagles and the newly-bowl eligible Florida Gators (6-4, 3-4 SEC). What’s gone into the recent surge of dominance from the Seminoles? How could the rest of the year play out? What does this season’s success mean for Florida State moving forward?

Perhaps you've been distracted by FSU football being good again. Perhaps your tv subscription expired, or you haven't been able to drive to the Tuck, and your radio died, and you forgot how to use the internet, and your neighbor's dog steals the newspaper, and all your friends who love basketball left town. If so, you may be wondering exactly how good the 'Noles look this year. I mean, there's a core returning quartet of Matthew Cleveland, Caleb Mills, Cam'Ron Fletcher, and Jalen Warley. There are critical transfers in Jaylen Gainey and Darin Green. And the freshmen class looks to be the best in years with Baba Miller, De'Ante Green, Cameron Corhen, Tom House, Jeremiah Bembry and Chandler Jackson. Let's get excited, people! Well....we've got some news for you. Gainey blew his knee and will be out all year. So will De'Ante Green. So will Bembry. Chandler Jackson broke his thumb. Fletcher can't practice. And the jewel of the newcomers - Baba Miller - is suspended by the NCAA for a half a year because he attended his own team's training camp. Has anyone else noticed that FSU hoops has been cursed since Covid hit? Luckily the season opened against Stetson. Even with just 8 scholarship players, surely they'd roll Stetson. Right? The next game was tougher. A road game at UCF. How'd it go? Well, through two games there in one team in college basketball (looking at you Mississippi Valley State) that has been worse on the defensive glass than Florida State. And the rest of the defense has been intriguing at best. And the offense? Well, there's a ball and a basket and sometimes the two meet. So here we are, two games into the bright and shiny new season. Come along as Matt and Michael provide some insight. It's gonna be a long season folks, so get comfortable and go 'Noles. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
No. 23 Florida State, in its ACC finale, put on a near-perfect performance vs. the Syracuse Orange. After scoring 14 points in the first quarter, Florida State’s offense took a bit to get going before finding life again in the third, surging ahead to safely put the game out of striking distance for the Orange. The Seminoles put up 420 yards, once again showing that Mike Norvell has cultivated one of the most explosive offenses in the country. Though the offense had an overall impressive performance, it was the defense that once again showed out, holding a team without a touchdown for the second straight week. Syracuse averaged just 3.3 yards per play, totaling 160 on the night (with most coming in garbage time.) Impressive individual performances were to be found across the board, with running back Trey Benson logging his third straight 100+ yard game, receivers Malik McClain and Johnny Wilson showcasing physicality while scoring on screen passes and quarterback Jordan Travis completing the trifecta of offensive scoring by throwing for, rushing for and catching a touchdown. With the win, the Seminoles (7-3, 5-3 ACC) finish with their best record in conference play since 2016. Next up for Florida State is a home matchup vs. the Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns (5-5, 3-4 Sun Belt), who are coming off a 36-17 win over the Georgia Southern Eagles. FSU vs. Syracuse stats 38-3 Total yards FSU: 420 Syracuse: 61 Passing yards FSU: 190 Syracuse: 34 Rushing yards FSU: 230 Syracuse: 27 Yards per play FSU: 5.9 Syracuse: 3.3 Learn more about your ad choices.

No. 23 Florida State is set to take on the Syracuse Orange this weekend inside the JMA Wireless Dome. Florida State Seminoles football (6-3, 4-3 ACC) is fresh off a 45-3 blowout victory over rival Miami (4-5, 2-3 ACC) while Syracuse (6-3, 3-2 ACC), once a top-15 team, are on a three-game losing streak after stumbling vs. the Pittsburgh Panthers in a 19-9 loss. On this week’s episode of the Line of Scrimmage, where ahead of each game this football season, we’re giving you insight into Florida State’s opponents from those in the know, we spoke with Andy Pregler of Troy Nunes is an Absolute Magician (or Nunes Magician, or TNIAAM, whatever suits your fancy.)

Hello everyone, happy Wednesday and welcome to Noles News Now, the latest in Florida State Seminoles sports, brought to you by Tomahawk Nation. I’m your host Perry Kostidakis -- let’s jump right in. Florida State has earned its first College Football Playoff ranking since 2016, the year that FSU faced off and beat Michigan in the Orange Bowl. The Seminoles debuted at No. 23 in the second edition of this year’s rankings, an improvement of two spots from the squad’s standing in the AP Top 25. FSU isn’t ranked in the Coaches Poll, but, hey, you can’t win them all, and also -- it doesn’t matter. The ranking is a reflection of the fact that, despite 3 losses, FSU has performed as at least one of the top 25 teams in the country. I’m going to drop a couple of stat bombs on you --  FSU has put together one of the most explosive offenses in the country, a balanced rushing and passing attack led by a significantly-improved Jordan Travis, who has established himself as one of the best quarterbacks in the ACC and arguably, the country. Florida State is now No. 1 in the country in 20+ yard plays, having logged 69 on the season (62 vs. Power 5 competition.) According to FSU Sports Info, Florida State is one of four teams in the country (and the only team in the ACC) averaging at least 270 yards of passing offense and at least 210 yards of rushing offense per game this season.  On the defensive end, while there is still room for improvement in a variety of areas, the Seminoles have also taken a step forward — FSU has allowed the fourth-fewest 20+ yard plays this season (24) while holding opponents to just 19.8 points per game (No. 22 in the country). Also via FSU Sports Info, Florida State is first in the ACC and fifth in the country in pass defense, holding opponents to an average of 165.0 yards per game through the air. The Seminoles also are first in the ACC and rank nine nationally, holding opponents to an average of 6.1 yards per pass attempt FSU leads the nation with 15 touchdown drives of 80+ yards and with seven 90+-yard touchdown drives this season. The Seminoles also rank fourth in explosive play rate differential, trailing only Georgia, Ohio State and Tulane, with an offense explosive play rate of 16.8 percent that ranks sixth nationally and a defense explosive plays allowed rate of 9.2 percent that is 15th in the country So basically -- yeah, Florida State is a pretty good football team. The Seminoles face off against the Syracuse Orange this Saturday at 7 p.m. and are currently 6.5 point favorites. In other FSU news, the soccer team is getting set to take on FGCU in the squad’s NCAA Tournament opener. FSU, the defending national champs and winners of the ACC Tournament, are the overall no. 1 seed and look to be set up well to at the very least make a deep run. Our Prince Akeem Joeffer, the best of the best when it comes to Florida State women’s athletics, has you covered with a layout of the bracket and other thoughts on the program up on the site right now. Those are the main big things of the day -- you can read up on them and more on right now, as well as catch up on all of our past coverage from the week, from football breakdowns to basketball look through.

The Florida State Seminoles are halfway to sweeping their in-state rivalries this season as they gave the Miami Hurricanes everything they could handle and a whole lot more in Saturday’s 45-3 victory. The Noles looked clearly the better team as they ran out to a huge lead and never looked back. They clinched bowl eligibility for the first time since 2019 and did so with the largest margin of victory in the history of the FSU-UM series. This week, the Seminole Wrap crew — Brian Pellerin and Max Escarpio (as Jon Marchant finishes out his old guy vacation) — discuss what led to the blowout, how the team and program should feel about and what goal should be for the rest of the season. Spoiler Alert: Optimism is plentiful. If you prefer pessimism, the duo discusses the future of the Miami program and Max also shares some thoughts on the upcoming FSU hoops season.

Welcome in to Noles News Now, your audio home for all things happening in Florida State athletics on the Tomahawk Nation podcast network. What a welcome back to the FSU-Miami rivalry, Mario Cristobal. Better luck next time. Happy victory Monday to you our listener. Your Florida State Seminoles are now bowl-eligible after a thoroughly, dominant and I mean dominant 45-3 win over Miami this past weekend. Thanks so much for tuning in. I’m Brian Pellerin on this Monday, November 7th. Apologies for the late timing on this podcast this week, we’re trying something different by recording on my Monday lunch break after Mike Norvell’s usual Monday press conference. We start this afternoon in the obvious place and that is Saturday’s blowout in Miami Gardens. The Seminoles asserting their will early taking a huge lead into half and never looking back. The stars on the day — Trey Benson who posted 15 carries for 128 and 2 TDs and then the FSU defense holding Miami to just 3 points in the game that came on their first drive. Otherwise, it was a lot of 3-and-outs plus turnovers. The Canes simply never had a prayer in this one. The stadium started emptying out in the second quarter and looked more like a normal Miami home game throughout the second half. Benson and OL-man Dillan Gibbons earned ACC Player of the Week honors as well. The victory puts Florida State back in the top 25 of the AP poll. They still remain a bit of a ways out in the coaches' poll. The college football playoff rankings drop tomorrow night. This week’s opponent Syracuse, no longer in those polls after dropping a third straight game. That one was a battle of teams playing without their top offensive player. Cuse going without QB Garrett Shrader who appears to be moving close to a return after warming up this past weekend and Pitt is without their star running back. Either way, it was Pitt who came out victorious so Noles headed to Syracuse to face a team on a losing streak, desperate to right their ship. Oddsmakers like FSU as they opened as a 7-point favorite on the road. Outside of the field, two headlines in Tallahassee. First coming Saturday night when the broadcast showed Mike Norvell and Deuce Spann on the sideline where Spann was clearly frustrated as Norvell tried to get his head back in the game. Asked about it today, Norvell said “It’s about me helping to get him back to where he’s in control — when you get to that point, your mind can race to a million different places... He apologized and I just told him I loved him.” Norvell received some praise online for how he handled that moment. The other coming from a potential transfer off this team. This morning, Sam McCall posted online a note that he was entering the transfer portal, but later deleted the post, saying he made it off emotion. So it appears he will remain with the team for the time being. That is certainly something that could come up in this week’s Tribe ‘23 Recruiting and Portal Thread with our experts Josh Pick, Tim Scribble, and David Stout. They’ve got the details on everything you need for potential roster shakeups in both recruiting and the portal. How about the ACC champs? Did you hear about that? Your reigning national champion FSU soccer team has added another trophy to their resume as they picked up the ACC title in a really even 2-1 victory against North Carolina. Florida State has now won nine of the last 12 ACC titles. Incredible run for that program. The NCAA tourney selection show is this afternoon at 4 so it may be out already depending on when you’re listening to this. Good luck going forward, Noles. Let’s go back to back. Hoops season is here also as the FSU men’s team opens their year tonight at 7 pm against Stetson. The FSU women already rolled through its first opponent with a 113-50 win against Bethune Cookman this morning. That’ll do it for today’s Noles News Now. Until next time, I’m Brian Pellerin.

It’s one of the greatest rivalries in athletics. Florida State Seminoles football (5-3, 3-3 ACC) and the Miami Hurricanes (4-4, 2-2 ACC) are set to etch the next chapter in the storied series between the two schools this Saturday. Currently, FSU is a 7.5-point favorite over Miami (according to DraftKings), a reflection of the Seminoles’ uptick in performance this year and a disappointing debut season so far for Mario Cristobal. Last season, the Seminoles snapped a losing streak to the Hurricanes by way of a dramatic 31-28 victory in Tallahassee. This year the two face off inside Hard Rock Stadium for a primetime showdown, scheduled for a 7:30 kickoff and set to be broadcast on ABC. On this week’s episode of the Line of Scrimmage, where ahead of each game this football season, we’re giving you insight into Florida State’s opponents from those in the know, we spoke with Hurricanes’ beat writer Adam Lichtenstein of the Sun-Sentinel. Adam gives us insight into the tumultuous beginning of the Cristobal era, helps break down the Hurricanes on offense and defense, talks Miami’s quarterback situation and offers a prediction for Saturday’s game.

Fresh off the team’s second bye week of the 2022 season, the Florida State Seminoles were able to thoroughly dominate the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets to start their final stretch run. The Noles opened the first quarter rusty, turning the ball over on downs on their opening drive and then fumbling it away on their following possession, but Florida State was able to bounce back from there and nearly triple the Yellow Jackets in yards and double them in first downs on the way to another win. So what helped the Noles get back in the win column? And what do they still need to clean up as they head to Miami for an in-state rivalry game and in search of bowl eligibility? The Seminole Wrap crew — Brian Pellerin and Max Escarpio (without Jon Marchant who is on vacation) — break down the answer to those questions plus their predictions for the Seminoles and Hurricanes.

Welcome in to Noles News Now, your audio home for all things happening in Florida State athletics on the Tomahawk Nation podcast network. A victory and record breaking  Monday for the FSU football team as they enter rivalry week. Thanks so much for tuning in. I'm Brian Pellerin on this Monday October 31st. Happy Halloween.  That record breaking effort came from the football team in a blowout win over Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets were clearly no match for FSU as evidence by the 41-16 final score. The Noles were far from perfect in the game and still dominated the yardage, first downs and of course points. Jordan Travis broke his personal passing yardage mark with 394. That was a big piece of a larger FSU historical game as this game was the third time in FSU history that they had a QB throw for 375, a running back for over 100 -- Trey Benson's 111 -- and a wide receiver over 100 with Johnny Wilson going for 111 as well.  Another big note was Fabian Lovett made his first appearance since the second game of the season. A huge piece to have back heading into rivalry week against Miami.  The Canes coming off a 4-OT 14-12 win this weekend against Virginia that saw no touchdowns. They're far from playing their best football and oddsmakers will tell you that. FSU is an 8-point favorite on this one Sunday night. We'll see if that moves during the week.  A win this week would give FSU bowl eligibility but also a nice welcome to the conference to Mario Cristobal. A statement victory could also help in some recruiting battles with the Canes. Mike Norvell and the coaching staff had plenty of potential Tribe 23 guys on campus this past week. For more on that, you can check out our recruiting and portal thread with plenty of great insight all for free.  Elsewhere on campus, FSU basketball hit with some bad news this weekend as the NCAA announced star freshman Baba Miller violated guidelines when his family received travel to and from a training camp from his native Spain to the U-S. That ruling puts Miller out of action for half the season. Miller and his family say they immediately paid back the benefits once they learned it violated NCAA rules. Athletic Director Michael Alford was none too pleased with the ruling saying the decision seems disproportionate and inconsistent in today's modern environment. Miller will continue to practice with the team so he's ready to return after his 16-game suspension.  The FSU volleyball team dropped a 4-set match to Boston College on Sunday. They'll face Clemson next on Friday.  Women's basetball dominated West Georgia 115-46 in an exhibition game.  And the No. 5 soccer team closed out their regular season with a 4-1 win over Virginia Tech.  That'll do it for today's Noles News Now. Until Wednesday, I'm Brian Pellerin.

Florida State Seminoles football (4-3, 2-3 ACC) is rested up and off its second bye of the season, looking to snap a three-game losing streak this Saturday vs. the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets (3-4, 2-2 ACC). FSU will also be looking to snap a two-game losing streak to Georgia Tech on Saturday at noon, having lost to the Yellow Jackets off a field-goal return in 2015 and in the opening game of the Mike Norvell era in 2020. The Seminoles are currently 23-point favorites, according to DraftKings, as the Yellow Jackets look to bounce back after a 16-9 loss to the Virginia Cavaliers last Thursday. On this week’s episode of the Line of Scrimmage, where ahead of each game this football season, we’re giving you insight into Florida State’s opponents from those in the know, we spoke with Robert Binion of our SB Nation sister site, From the Rumble Seat. Robert, who was one of the first-ever guests on the Tomahawk Nation podcast network to preview that aforementioned 2020 game, jumped on to talk about Georgia Tech’s new life after firing head coach Geoff Collins, what the quarterback situation for the Yellow Jackets looks like, how the offense and defense have looked and a prediction for Saturday.

With their bye week in the rearview mirror, the Florida State Seminoles now face five games in five weeks to close 2022 strong and build toward 2023. The bye gave them a chance to rest and reset their mindset from a 3-game losing streak. Still ahead of them, a chance to clinch their first bowl game since 2019, the state championship games, a likely ranked contest against Syracuse and a non-conference matchup with Louisiana. The Seminole Wrap crew — Brian Pellerin, Max Escarpio and Jon Marchant — discuss their expectations in each of those 5 games, how they expect Florida State to finish the season and what they need to do to get there. Could the Noles run the table and take all 5 contests? Could there be unexpected stumbles down the stretch? How will these outcomes shape Mike Norvell’s tenure and Florida State’s path back to the top of college football? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
Welcome in to Noles News Now, your audio home for all things happening in Florida State athletics on the Tomahawk Nation podcast network. Yeah, it's Monday again. But at least its an FSU game week Monday. Thanks so much for tuning in. I'm Brian Pellerin on this Monday October 24th. I hope you used the Florida State football bye week and followed the team's lead in picking up some rest and preparing for the stretch run. Mike Norvell's team got that opporunity to heal up their bodies and minds, clear that 3 game losing streak and charge toward the final 5 games of the season. That stretch run starts with Georgia Tech in Doak this weekend. Kickoff for that is at noon on the ACC Network. Florida State opened as 20.5 point favorite so oddsmakers like them to snap that losing skid and roll through the Yellow Jackets. G-T is 3-4 on the seson with those wins coming against West Carolina, Duke and Pitt. The losses to Clemson, Ole Miss, UCF and Virginia. If FSU takes care of themselves, they should be able to handle business and move one win away from bowl eligibility. Of course, that's the lowest of expectations for this team down the stretch. Fans are hoping for much more and so is our Seminole Wrap crew. Jon Marchant, Max Escarpio and myself discussed on this week's episode available today. We looked at the team's still on the schedule, gave our confidence in FSU winning, which ones we expect to give them problems -- the answer there might surprise you -- and gave our predictions for the team's final record. Again, that's on Seminole Wrap this week. Episode dropping today. A bye week also gives the coaching staff a chance to get out on the recruiting trail a bit more as well so now is a great time to check back in with our recruiting and transfer portal thread looking at the Tribe for 2023 to see where the staff was out making moves. Elsewhere, Link Jarrett got his first win as the FSU baseball coach, sorta. The Noles beat Kennesaw State in its first exhibition game of fall ball. Whole lot of midnights between now and the actual start of the year... Opening Day is February 17th against James Madison. Speaking of exhibitions! the men's basketball team also wanted to get in on the fun... they'll hold their own on Thursday against Newberry College. Admission for that one is free. Gotta like that. The women's basketball team has their first exhibition on Sunday. The soccer team got a big bounceback win yesterday defeating Pittsburgh 1-0 with a second half goal and volleyball had an excellent weekend, posting two sweeps. Those straight set wins were over Virginia Tech and Wake Forest. That'll do it for today's Noles News Now. Until Wednesday, I'm Brian Pellerin. Thanks for listening. Learn more about your ad choices.

Florida State Seminoles football (4-3, 2-3 ACC) sits at a crossroads after losing three-straight games — an undefeated start has turned into a just-over .500 record, with FSU showcasing both frustrating self-inflicted mistakes and clear indicators of growth and progress. The Seminoles currently are in the midst of the team’s second bye week of the year, taking the opportunity to regroup and refocus ahead of the final five games of the year — vs. the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, on the road vs. the Miami Hurricanes, away against the Syracuse Orange and the two home games to finish the year vs. Louisiana-Layfette and the Florida Gators. In lieu of a writer from Florida State’s opponent for the week, on this week’s Line of Scrimmage, we figured that the best way to look back at the past few weeks was to bring on some names from Tomahawk past. Adam Brown (CoachAB) and Trey Rowland of Xs and Noles and Noles247 jumped on to discuss the Seminoles’ offense and defense, players of note and offer season predictions.

Happy Monday and welcome in to Noles News Now, your audio home for all things happening in Florida State athletics on the Tomahawk Nation podcast network. I'm your  host Brian Pellerin on this Monday October 17th. Thanks so much for joining me. I wish I was here with better news from an F-S-U sports weekend, but that's not meant  to be.  Another week turned out, brought another top 15 team to FSU's schedule and another mark in the loss column. This time it was Clemson, putting the blemish on FSU's  record. The Tigers used a huge 17 point rally late in the first half and early in the second to jump out to a big lead and never looked back. The Noles were able  to scrap their way to within 6 but never really threatened to win.  At the game's end Coach Norvell saluted the Clemson run game for the success they found with running back Will Shipley and on designed runs for DJ Uieungalelei, but  the Noles really kept Clemson in check outside of that window around halftime. So is this the beginning of the end of another unsuccessful season in Tallahass?  The Seminole Wrap crew isn't ready to write them off yet despite the 3 game losing streak. So what's gone wrong, what do they need to use the bye week for and how will  they perform the rest of the season? That's all covered on the latest episode available later today.  Next up for FSU is a home game with Georgia Tech in two weeks so they can use the bye to prepare, get some rest and heal up some injured players.  This weekend' game was also massive for the Noles recruiting efforts as football and basketball both had some primetime players on campus. For the latest on those  visits and the inside scoop our crew has on those guys, check out our latest recruiting thread. Our guys do a lot of great work and making sure you've got the latest  details on the recruits that could go a long way to getting FSU back where we want them to be so be sure to give that a read and get involved in the conversation.  Elsewhere on campus, FSU volleyball lost to No. 8 Pittsburgh in straight sets. The baseball team is a week away from their first showcase camp and women's tennis  concluded the ITA regionals with one player advancing to the singles consolation semifinals.  That'll do it for today's Noles News Now. Until Wednesday, I'm Brian Pellerin.
