Florida State football player Marvin Wilson and other players are refusing to work out because of a dispute with head coach Mike Norvell.

Norvell claimed he had one-on-one conversations with every player on his roster after days of unrest around America, according to Tashan Reed of The Athletic. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

However, Wilson says that’s not true at all. He claimed early Thursday morning a mass text was sent out, but one-on-one conversations didn’t happen.

“This is a lie and me and my teammates as a whole are outraged and we will not be working out until further notice,” he added.

Is Mike Norvell about to get canned before coaching a single game for the Seminoles? This situation sounds like it’s on the brink of absolute disaster.

If Wilson and the team refuse to work out or do other activities, then Norvell is cooked. The AD simply can’t keep him if the team won’t play.

I don’t know if he’s lying or not, but this seems like an incredibly easy thing to fact check. If Norvell is lying or grossly misrepresented the truth, then his players have every right in the world to be pissed.

This situation seems like it’s a powder keg and a match will send it up in flames.

Norvell better fix this sooner than later. If he doesn’t, he’s going to end up having a conversation with the AD and I can promise he won’t like the outcome.
