Hot prospects: This class so far is considered average, perhaps because coach Jimbo Fisher has lost six assistants from last season's staff. The Seminoles have not lured any five-star recruits. Miami Washington five-star WR Matthew Thomas is said to be deciding between Alabama and FSU. The other five-star recruits listed by have either orally committed to another school or do not have FSU listed as a choice. The hope for Fisher is to get some top recruits to flip, as St. Petersburg TE Jeremy Kerr did after first committing to Miami.

    Lightning Strikes

    COLUMBUS, Ohio — Lightning wing J.T. Brown will no longer raise his first as a protest during the national anthem before games.

  4. Signs point to Jameis Winston dressing vs. Bills


    TAMPA — The Bucs didn't sign another quarterback Wednesday, which would suggest they are confident that Jameis Winston can be active as a backup to Ryan Fitzpatrick on Sunday at Buffalo if he doesn't start.

  5. FSU doesn't feel need for ongoing reminder of last year's beatdown at Louisville
