Saturday's showdown between Florida State and Miami will kick off as scheduled at 3:30 EST.
The Seminoles and Hurricanes were in potential danger of having their kickoff moved back due to the approach of Tropical Storm Nate. On Nate's current projected trajectory, though, the game will be played as originally scheduled. This contest, itself, had initially been set for mid-September before Hurricane Irma forced a scheduling tweak. Oct 5 - 3:09 PM

Tomahawk Nation's Bud Elliott passes along that Saturday's game between Miami and Florida State is "likely" to kick at its scheduled time of 3:30 EST.

There was some concern that Tropical Storm Nate might force either a shift in Saturday's kickoff or potentially even a move to a new location. That does not appear like it will be needed at this juncture, but if there is any change in regards to the weather, we'll pass along word. Conditions are probably going to be sloppy regardless of what time the game kicks off.

With Tropical Storm Nate expected to make landfall in Florida this weekend, Miami and Florida State are monitoring the weather for their scheduled Saturday contest.

This game was initially scheduled to be played on September 16, but was scuttled due to Hurricane Irma and subsequently moved to October 7. Surprise, surprise, they still might have to deal with excessive wind and rain. At this juncture, there is no imminent shift in the works. Stay tuned.
Oct 4 - 6:04 PM

The match-up between Florida State and Miami scheduled for September 16 will likely be shifted to October 7.

No announcement has been made on this front as of yet, but Florida State's campus will be closed until Friday due to Hurricane Irma. The move would make sense on a logistical level -- the squads share an open date on October 7. Both teams have already canceled their games this weekend due to the hurricane, with Miami nixing their showdown with Arkansas State and Florida State doing likewise with their matchup against Louisiana-Monroe.
Sep 9 - 3:30 PM

Saturday's game between Florida State and Louisiana-Monroe has been canceled.

Florida State's announcement came following Florida Gov. Rick Scott order that all state colleges and universities close through Monday to support Hurricane Irma emergency relief efforts. Since the Seminoles and Warhawks don't have a common bye date, the game could not be rescheduled.

Florida State's game against Louisiana-Monroe has been changed to Noon EST on Saturday.

"The earlier start will give ULM the opportunity to travel safely after the game, and provide many of our fans a chance to come to the game and return home in time to make any necessary preparations," FSU President John Thrasher said.

FSU school president John Thrasher predicted that the Seminoles will obliterate Alabama in the season-opener.

"I shouldn’t talk too much trash, but I think we’re gonna beat Alabama pretty bad next week. I really do," Thrasher said. Alabama is currently listed as a seven-point favorite on Bovada. This match-up between the AP Preseason No. 1 and No. 3 is the highest ranked pairing for an opener in FBS history.

In the preseason media poll at ACC Media Days, Florida State was picked to win the conference.

Florida State received 121 first-place votes to Clemson's 37 to win the Atlantic Division, with Miami (103 first-place votes to Virginia Tech's 40) predicted as winner of the Coastal Division. In terms of votes to win the conference on the whole, FSU received 118, followed by Clemson's 35 and Louisville's seven. Despite receiving plenty of love for their division, Miami received just four votes for overall conference supremacy.

Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher called the ACC the best conference in the country.

"I think we've established ourselves as the premier conference in college football," Fisher said at the ACC media scrum late in the week. The conference's two biggest feathers in its cap come in Clemson's national title and Louisville QB Lamar Jackson's Heisman Trophy. Fisher will have a chance to back up his words by degrees against Alabama in the season-opener about a month-and-a-half from now.

Florida State and West Virginia will play in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Classic in 2020.

The Seminoles and Mountaineers are scheduled to square off in Atlanta on September 5, 2020. That game will be played in the currently-under-construction Mercedes-Benz Stadium. "Florida State is one of the top teams in the nation each year," said WVU HC Dana Holgorsen in a statement, "and it will be a challenge for us and a great way to open the season." In a small sample size, Florida State is 3-0 all-time versus West Virginia. The two teams last played in 2010.
Jan 5 - 6:08 PM

Florida State signed HC Jimbo Fisher to a contract extension through the 2024 season.

In a statement, Fisher said, "I am proud to be the football coach at Florida State University, and I am happy we were able to reach a long-term contract to have our staff in place for a long time." He had been linked to LSU in coaching rumors over the past two seasons, but those rumors never translated to an actual move. During his seven seasons as Florida State's head coach, Fisher owns an impressive 77-17 record.

LSU beat writer Ross Dellenger reports LSU has its "sights on" FSU's Jimbo Fisher to be the school's next head coach.

Dellenger includes a few details, like a small group of decision makers have narrowed a list to around four targets, and it ends with naming Ed Orgeron as head coach. We won;t spend too much time on this, as coaching speculation lasts for weeks and usually includes very little truth, but LSU is expected to act quickly.

Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher reaffirmed his love for the Seminoles in the face of rumors that he might leave for LSU.

On Tuesday, the New Orleans Times-Picayune's James Smith relayed that LSU AD Joe Alleva has been in touch with Fisher's representation since the Tigers' firing of Les Miles in September. Fisher predictably tried to squash the continued job speculation, saying, "I’m not going to talk about any jobs. I love being at Florida State. I love being here, and I’m just getting ready for Syracuse." It should be noted that Fisher did not outright dismiss Smith's report, nor did he deny interest in the job.

The New Orleans Times-Picayune's James Smith reports that Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher and LSU interim HC Ed Orgeron are both legitimate contenders to take over the Tigers' vacant head coaching position.

Per Smith, LSU AD Joe Alleva has kept in communication with Fisher's representatives since Les Miles' firing in September. Smith further relays that while Fisher's contract contains a $5 million buyout, the Tigers are not deterred by having to pony up those bucks. In addition to Fisher and Orgeron, Mike Gundy, Tom Herman and Larry Fedora are being considered for the open gig.

Florida State HC Jimbo Fisher believes that harsher penalties should be enforced for illegal hits on the quarterback.

"Late hits need to be really, really scrutinized and maybe even more severe punishments to stop people, like we throw guys out of games for head shots," Fisher said. In Saturday's loss to Clemson, Fisher took umbrage with a non-replay on a play in which Deondre Francois was leveled with a helmet-to-the-midsection hit in the fourth quarter. He later called the replay official's decision not to buzz down for a closer look "bad." In general, Fisher has been in rare form since the Seminoles fell to Clemson. The ACC fined him $20,000 for postgame comments in which he referred to the officiating as "garbage."
