12/21/2011 - Florida State senior running back Jermaine Thomas has been declared academically ineligible for the Champs Sports Bowl and will not play in his final college game. Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said Wednesday Thomas did not pass one of his classes during the fall semester. Fisher says Thomas was the only player on the roster who is academically ineligible for the Dec. 29 game against Notre Dame. Thomas was Florida State's second-leading rusher in 2011, gaining 279 yards and a touchdown. He averaged 4.6 yards per carry. Without Thomas, Florida State will likely lean more on freshman Devonta Freeman, who has 531 rushing yards and eight touchdowns. Either freshman James Wilder Jr. (150 rushing yards) or senior Ty Jones (71 rushing yards) should see increased playing time. - AP Sports

11/03/2011 - SCOUTING THE OFFENSE: The difference-maker in recent weeks has been improved health of quarterback E.J. Manuel. His ability to run the option, take off on sprint draws, or designed rollout plays has opened up the running game for the tailbacks. It has helped negate the Seminoles' weaknesses on their revamped offensive line where five of the top eight players on the August depth chart are no longer available. Without him, this offense is nowhere near as capable to spread the field and play pitch-and-catch, because the offensive line struggles so bad. But the Seminoles have shown one of the deepest, most explosive receiver corps of any team in the country and with tailback Jermaine Thomas and Lonnie Pryor running well now, it has made this offense very difficult to stop. - The Sports Xchange

Thomas was first charged on Feb. 4 with driving with a suspended license. Police stopped him on Thursday and charged him with the same thing.
