TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — I haven’t had the chance to do this in over a month so it comes with great relief that I present this week’s MVP vote from the Twitter world.
Every time the Florida State football team wins, I send out a tweet the following day asking for Seminoles fans’ opinion on whom should be labeled the MVP from the victory. EJ Manuel took the honor in the win over Louisiana-Monroe and then Rashad Green had the most votes after his performance against Charleston Southern.
Well, this week the MVP goes to another freshman: Devonta Freeman.

FSU’s speedy tailback became the first player this season to rush for at least 100 yards for the Seminoles. His 109 yards and one touchdown helped spark a run-game that had been non-existent for FSU all season.
In the 41-16 win over Duke, the ‘Noles racked up 242 yards rushing and Freeman really set the tone in that facet of the game.
Freeman barely edged out Manuel with the most MVP votes and Bjoern Werner was a very close third.
Here are a few of the responses I got yesterday from Florida State fans on Twitter:
@LiaPNYC: “EJ! He was en fuego.”
@fsunelson: “#3. Talent + Execution = success. Intangible was his leadership.”
@osceolaforever: “B. Werner and D. Freeman Co-MVP’s”
@thePRdude: “Bjoern. Not just the game, but the season.”
@noleman95: “Giving some much needed love to the o-line. Over 200 yards rushing AND pass protection #evenwiththefroshhart”
