A blow for the Seminoles:
Florida State announced on Monday that linebacker Marcus Ball has asked for a release from his football scholarship and that request has been granted.
Ball had 24 tackles last year and was projected to start this fall once he served a three-game suspension for being part of the online cheating scandal that gutted the Seminoles late last year. No word on where he's going to transfer to.

With the questionable status of gun-charge bearing Preston Parker, Florida State now finds its vaunted linebacking corps whittled down significantly.
