(Cross-posting a roster analysis I did for NoleDigest on 2/9/2013; I figure it's worth getting a slightly wider audience.) Now that signing day has come and gone, I figured it'd be worth doing a short review of what FSU has returning. I'll try to update this...

As many of you may know, I moonlight as a sportswriter during the football season, providing analysis to NoleDigest.com, a subsidiary of FoxSports. Last week, our publisher had jury duty when my article would ordinarily be posted, so the following wasn't posted in its usual...

This was a really interesting QB draft, as pretty much every major prospect had significant question marks, with the various draftnik experts having significantly different rankings for the QBs. It is somewhat surprising to me that, given these question marks, that four guys went in...

Back at it in the week following my Greek Prelim—won't have a whole lot of time for blogging until after my prelims finish at the beginning of December. Went 18–6 last week, which takes my season total to 151–49 (75.5%). ACC: UNC 31, Virginia Tech 30 —...

Already got one from Thursday night (posted to Twitter), as an overrated Virginia Tech team escaped a sub-par Georgia Tech team. Had my worst week since I can remember last week, going 13–9 and missing every close game. That drops me back to 133–43 (75.5%). ACC Virginia...

Missed my FSU-NCSU pick when Florida State decided to kick the ball around all game, flush a couple touchdown drives, and fumble inside the five yard line with under a minute to play. Jimbo Fisher was obviously devastated but extremely gracious—actually actively thanking the media...

A very tough week of picks this week; a lot of games that could go either way on the slate. ACC: Miami 28, UNC 24 (I would ordinarily pick UNC here, but with the loss of Pianalto, my gut says Miami) VaTech 45, Duke 13 (VaTech has cruised...

Was pretty good again last week, with some near-misses (I didn't have the guts to pick South Carolina over Bama, only saying it was Bama's most likely loss) and some near-perfect hits (Stanford squeaking by USC), and one I was very happy to get wrong...

Pretty decent week last week (got the Notre Dame-BC game score exactly right, was within one point of the FSU-UVa game, and two points off in the Miami-Clemson game), finishing 19–5 (62–18 on the season). As for this week: ACC: NC State 34, BC 17 VaTech 42, CMU...

Missed last week (busy time), but here's this week's picks: ACC: Clemson 23, Miami 30 Florida State 34, Virginia 13 Notre Dame 31, Boston College 13 NC State 41, Virginia Tech 38 Maryland 42, Duke 24 Georgia Tech 35, Wake Forest 24 North Carolina 31, ECU 17 SEC: Alabama 30, Florida 20 Auburn 52, Louisiana-Monroe 13 Connecticut...
