The Seminoles football team opened its doors at midnight on June 1 to recruits. They invited their recruits to the Moore Athletic Center for the first permitted face-to-face contact with recruits since March 2020.

FSU head coach Mike Norvell and his staffers greeted the recruits who showed up to their “Midnight Madness” event:

Much like a typical college basketball “Midnight Madness” event, this one included the coach riding around on a special car.

Norvell went 3-6 last season, which was his first as FSU’s head coach. He and FSU are hoping that this kind of energy on the recruiting trail will translate to a better record.

Florida law seeks to rein in large social media companies .
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a bill on Monday that seeks to punish social media platforms that remove “conservative ideas” from their sites, though it is not clear if it would pass constitutional muster because it might violate the First Amendment. The new law will enable the state to fine large social media companies $250,000 a day if they remove an account of a statewide political candidate, and $25,000 a day if they remove an account of someone running for a local office. It takes effect July 1.
