(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...

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 —...
