Nigel Carr, FSU Linebacker Arrested

FSU Football Player Arrested-Impact on the Team

An FSU football player expected to be in the starting lineup this fall is arrested and accused of multiple felonies.

Nigel Carr is accused of a breaking into two cars and stealing a credit card and it turns out he was arrested on misdeameanor marijuana charges last week too.

Folks who live at Seminole Legends say police officers were at the complex all day Sunday outside the condo of Seminole linebacker Nigel Carr.

“I took the trash out at five, I think, and there were two police cars and then more police cars just kept coming throughout the night,” said resident Kaylen Dumars.

Property manager Corry Wilhoit says Carr moved in a few weeks ago and describes him as “very friendly.” He says officers were at the complex from about noon until well into the night.

Carr is accused of breaking into an SUV at Stadium Place (224 Hayden Road) about a block away. A woman there heard banging and a car alarm at about 11:10am and looked outside to see a man getting into a white car and leaving the scene.

The victim then started searching for her belongings in dumpsters along her street. She soon found her book bag and purse in the dumpster at Carr’s complex.

Surveillance video captured a man in a white car tossing items into the dumpster at 11:38 that same morning, police say.  Read more here

What is a Buckeye?

A Buckeye is a  small, shiny, dark brown nut with a light tan patch that comes from the official state tree of Ohio, the buckeye tree.

According to folklore, the Buckeye resembles the eye of a deer and carrying one brings good luck.

“Buckeyes” has been the official Ohio State nickname since 1950, but it had been in common use for many years before.

The first recorded use of the term Buckeye to refer to a resident of the area was in 1788, some 15 years before Ohio became a state. Col. Ebenezer Sproat, a 6’4″ man of large girth and swashbuckling mannerisms, led the legal delegation at the first court session of the Northwest Territory in Marietta. The Indians in attendance greeted him with shouts of “Hetuck, Hetuck” (the Indian word for buckeye), it is said because they were impressed by his stature and manner. He proudly carried the Buckeye nickname for the rest of his life and it gradually spread to his companions and to other local settlers. By the 1830s, writers were commonly referring to locals as “Buckeyes.”

Buckeye Leaves
A round white decal, about the size of a quarter, with a green depiction of a buckeye leaf is applied to Ohio State football helmets for big plays and consistency on the field.

This tradition started in 1967 when Woody Hayes and longtime trainer Ernie Biggs changed the look of the Ohio State uniforms.

Many of the sports at Ohio State incorporate Buckeye Leaves into their equipment and uniforms.

Bobby Bowden Seminoles Win Gator Bowl, Northwestern and Auburn Outback Bowl

Gator Bowl Final Score Seminoles 33, West Virginia 21

Bobby Bowden watched the clock run down to :00, then took his last walk to midfield as his Florida State players jumped up and down, thrusting their helmets into the air.

There was a pregame video of Bowden highlights. He got a new car, a gift from Toyota and the Gator Bowl. And then came a rare treat even for Bowden, the right to take the flaming FSU spear from Chief Osceola and slam the point into the turf at midfield, one of Florida State’s most revered pregame traditions.

“I’m very excited. Ann and I are very excited to be here in front of the Seminoles and also the Mountaineers,” Bowden said from the field to a sold-out crowd moments before kickoff. “I couldn’t help but get nostalgic when I heard the West Virginia band play their fight song. And then also, to hear the Seminoles play ours.”

Bowden was head coach at Howard College (now known as Samford University, currently in the FCS football division) in Birmingham, Alabama from 1954–1955  Samford from 1959-62, led West Virginia from 1970-75 and took over at Florida State the next season.

The coach went out a winner, carried off by the Seminoles.

Jermaine Thomas ran for two touchdowns , Florida State scored 20 straight points to take control and the Seminoles knocked off No. 18 West Virginia 33-21 at the Gator Bowl in the final game of Bowden’s storied 44-year career as a head coach.

As of the 2009 season, Bowden was one of four active coaches inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame as coaches along with Chris Ault, Joe Paterno and John Gagliardi.

“I will not forget it. I won’t forget the other ones we have here, too,” Bowden said, his hands wrapped around the silver Gator Bowl trophy. “Nothing like a win.”

Bowden finished with a 389-129-4 record, and most importantly to him, a 33rd consecutive winning season. Next week, Jimbo Fisher takes over at Florida State, which finished 7-6 for the third time in the last four years.

That run of mediocrity was the 80-year-old Bowden’s downfall – he wanted to stay at least one more season – but on this day, none of that mattered to the Florida State faithful, which serenaded him with “Bob-by! Bob-by!” chants throughout the day, saving their loudest cries for the very end.  Read fully story here

South Florida Upsets Florida State

Highlights USF Football

The undefeated South Florida Bulls entered Saturday’s competition against Florida State well aware that the Seminoles would be fired up on their home turf.

University of South Florida Football

While the Seminoles sought to prove their worth among the nation’s elite, their opponents were simply trying to justify their football program within their state. With senior quarterback Matt Grothe out with a knee injury, the Bulls looked to redshirt freshman B.J. Daniels for help. Daniels, who is coincidentally a Tallahassee native, was stellar in his debut performance. Rushing for 126 yards and throwing two touchdownpasses, Daniels led his squad to a 17-7 victory at No. 18 Florida State.  Read full story here

FSU’s Seminoles Quarterback Christian Ponder Progressing

The play wasn’t a game-changer or even particularly memorable. Florida State quarterback Christian Ponder, facing second and 15 from his own 36 late in the opening half of the Champs Sports Bowl against Wisconsin, faked a handoff and looked left for receiver Greg Carr, who was running a post pattern. But a cornerback was playing off, and a safety rolled over to help.

“That made the post dead,” Ponder said. He then glanced right for receiver Taiwan Easterling, who had lined up in the slot and was running a down-and-out toward the first-down marker. But Ponder realized the other corner was well-positioned to make a play. “That was dead, too,” he said. What to do now? Well, he searched for his third option, receiver Bert Reed, who was running an underneath route toward the right sideline.  Read full story here
