WR Joslin Shaw has finally been reinstated by the NCAA. Shaw is one of the 23 student-athletes embroiled in an academic misconduct scandal. Said Bowden,"I'm so glad they got it cleared up and we've got him back, just for his sake. Here's a kid who's worked diligently for us for five years and he finally gets a chance and something like this happens and his situation was a misunderstanding type thing."
Bobby Bowden said he knows what the answer is to the question regarding who should be the starting quarterback for the Noles. However, Bowden said he will defer to his offensive coordinator regarding the answer. “The one thing I do want is Jimbo Fisher to answer that,” Bowden said. “I think it is very obvious what the answer is but I just want people to know I’m really turning this thing over to him.”
Until Saturday, it had been nearly 36 years since FSU was involved in a scoreless first half. FSU and Virginia Tech were both scoreless in the first half of their Oct. 3, 1971 contest. FSU went on to win, 17-3.
