FSU coach Jimbo Fisher may yet shed some insight on his decision, but the fact he eschewed an annual salary of $5.5 million with the Seminoles to sign a reported 10-year, $75 million contract (and more difficult job) with Texas A&M has me wondering what it takes to make a man happy.
Loyalty always has proved fleeting in sports, but having won a national title at FSU and successfully filled the shoes of the legendary Bobby Bowden, Fisher appeared poised to craft another long run. Now he’s gone, and we’re left with yet another reminder that the game so many love isn’t really a game at all.
For now, it appears FSU deserved better. And I write that as a Gators fan. .?.?.

The Friends of the Riverwalk celebrated the addition of six historical monuments: physician and World War II hero Frank Adamo; Elizabeth Barnard, Tampa’s first female postmaster; Ossian Hart, 10th governor of the state; La Gaceta founder Victoriano Manteiga; civil rights leader Benjamin E. Mays and Plant City pioneer Stephen Sparkman.
Make a point to learn more about each next time you stroll along the Hillsborough River. Each monument comes with a QR code leading to a full bio.
Each step on the Riverwalk reminds us it’s a Tampa jewel. .?.?.
Arts Conservatory for Teens co-founder Alex Harris headlines a night of entertainment — including some of his students — at 7 p.m. on Friday at the Hideaway Cafe, 1756 Central Ave.
Harris, a show-stopping singer, is worth the price, but I’m sure his students, as singer Rihanna would say, will shine bright like a diamond.
That’s all I’m saying.
