COLLEGE FOOTBALL: APR 06 Florida State Spring GameImage Enlarger

Serenity now.

This is how it began:

And recently, Rapoport recorded this elaboration— which I think was really just an excuse to refer to Sanders as a “prime” candidate for the Florida State job.

Yes, this is an entertaining digression. And it’s also not going to happen. Sure, Sanders was arguably the greatest Seminole to ever wear the garnet and gold. But running fast and running a program are two very different things. With zero college coaching experience — much less as a head coach — Sanders is far better suited for his current role as an on-air personality.

But of course, people had to run with this.

And Sanders isn’t exactly talking it down.

The rumor seems to have the support of FSU’s top-ranked commit for the 2020 class...

And drew a playful jab from a former Seminole player.

As an aside, I’d just like to re-emphasize that the Sanders-to-FSU thing originated with Rapoport and Mike Garafolo: his colleagues at NFL.com. If having your coworkers start a rumor about you is all it takes to make news, I do hope nobody at Tomahawk Nation goes public regarding my tawdry affair with Emma Stone.
