This week Von Wafer takes home the honors. Wafer played for Florida State in 2004 and 2005. With a 4-2 series victory the former 'Nole helped propel the Rockets to the second round of the playoffs to face his old team the Los Angeles Lakers. In those six games Wafer has averaged 17.8 minutes, 9.7 ppg, and shot 45% from three coming off the bench. Wafer played the majority of the series with a sore back, which he doesn't expect to affect him against LA tonight at 10:30.

Just like that it's over. 61-59 Wisconsin sends FSU home from the dance unsatisfied and disappointed.

Bowden's statement on the NCAA sanctions:
“My reaction to the NCAA sanctions is that it was too stiff and I think that (FSU President) Dr. Wetherell is right in making that appeal. The thing about it to me, this thing ain’t about me. That is really all I hear from commentators is ‘Bobby Bowden this’ and ‘Bobby Bowden’. It is about all of our coaches and our teams, you know. I think everybody is putting everything on my wins, which is just part of it. The big thing, the whole crux of it to me men, does the punishment fit the crime? Does the punishment fit the crime? I think that’s the thing, that’s the thing we gotta find the answer to right there.”
As usual Bowden takes the classy route. Here is a copy of the letter TK sent to the NCAA.
TK may be keeping the post office in business all by himself this week. He had to write another letter apologizing to Samford University after referring to them as a Dip Shit school or uhhh.....I mean other institution. Mike Bianchi's bad mouthing of Bowden is what got TK all fired up and ready to throw down in the first place.
Back to the field... Wide Receiver Correy Surrency participated in his first full practice of the spring today. He is eligible to practice while his appeal is being heard. While he said that he wants to come back more than any other option, he did say that a few NFL teams have inquired with Jimbo Fisher about a possible workout if things don't work out.
Ochuko Jenije has been having a great spring so far. In three days of practice he has 3 picks, he is hoping to fill Tony Carter's shoes opposite of Patrick Robinson.
FSU baseball has had a rough start to this season, losing again in the 9th against Florida. But don't fret help is on the way next year. Things will not get much better as Clemson comes to town this weekend.
Well what do you think of the new layout? Suggestions always welcome!

While nothing is official just yet and I'm sure the NCAA committee will look for a reason, any reason to keep FSU out, it would appear that the moons have aligned and FSU is headed back to the tournament for the first time since 1998. FSU defeated Clemson 73-66 clinching just it's second winning ACC record in 16 seasons.

This weekend's series should allow FSU fans to gauge where this young team is at. While they are ranked 5th in the country there are still some questions about how many runs this offense will be able to put up. Also how long can FSU expect these young pitchers to dominate and not feel the pressure?

Well you might be tired of reading it, I know I'm tired of writing it but Toney Doulgas carried the 'Noles to another victory last night against Virginia Tech. Finally they broke threw with an end game situation.

Toney Douglas and Jack McClinton not only will be competing against each other tomorrow night on the court, but they're also both competing for ACC player of the year honors.

Here it is the long awaited release of 34th FSU football schedule in the Bowden Era:
Date Opponent Location
Sept. 7 Miami Tallahassee, FL
Sept. 12 Jacksonville State Tallahassee, FL
Sept. 19 BYU Provo, UT
Sept. 26 USF Tallahassee, FL
Oct. 3 Boston College Chestnut Hill, MA
Oct. 10 Georgia Tech Tallahassee, FL
Oct. 17 OPEN
Oct. 22 North Carolina (Thurs) Chapel Hill, NC
Oct. 31 NC State Tallahassee, FL
Nov. 7 Clemson Clemson, SC
Nov. 14 Wake Forest Winston-Salem, NC
Nov. 21 Maryland Tallahassee, FL
Nov. 28 Florida Gainesville, FL
FSU has won the last two games against Miami played on Labor Day, but lost two years ago when they played Clemson.
This schedule is extremely tough with the only real "off" game coming against Jacksonville State who is still dangerous with former LSU quarterback and 2007 SEC Championship MVP Ryan Perrilloux. The 'Noles trip to BYU will be no walk in the park. And you don't think USF would love to come up to Tallahassee and earn some respect from their in-state peers.
Thursdays nights game against North Carolina on the road will be an extremely tough test with Butch Davis recruiting more talent than ever at UNC. He brought in the eighth ranked class according to Rivals.
How sweet would it be if FSU was able to knock off the Gators in the Swamp, leaving Tebow with a home loss in his final game in Gainesville.

For the first time since 2003 the men's basketball team is in the top 25. They are ranked 25th in both polls. It's the latest in the season they have been ranked in the AP poll since 1993 and first time since 98 to be in the AP poll at all.

Yesterday's win against Georgia Tech was not pretty. It wasn't entertaining to watch. But they came away with a must win game. GT was fresh off an upset of Wake Forrest and they were determined to bust the 'Noles Bubble. They did everything they could to keep the ball out of Toney Douglas' hands. They frustrated him early and he was just 1 of 6 from behind the three point line. With his shots not falling like they usually do, Toney made sure to get to the free throw line at the end of the game and managed to get his usual 21 points. He also had a career high six steals furthering the talk that he should be in the mix for defensive player of the year. Derwin Kitchen added 13 points to help take the load off toney. 11 of those points were scored in the second half. The role of second scorer has rotated continuously throughout the season, but if FSU is truly going to compete for the ACC then Derwin is going to have to be able to help take the load off of Toney every night.
