TALLAHASSEE Michael Snaer was a McDonalds All-American in high school with plenty of college choices.
He liked Marquette and Missouri. And as a native of Moreno Valley, Calif., of course UCLA was an attractive option. So was Kansas, and Snaer said he built a good relationship with Jayhawks coach Bill Self.
Those schools had plenty of hoops history. Florida State had just reached the NCAA Tournament in 2009 during Snaers senior year of high school and that was after a decade-long drought. But in the end, Snaers heart told him to go across the country to FSU.
That was probably the biggest thing that helped me make my decision, Snaer said. They didnt have that tradition. It was somewhere you could come in and make your mark. As a competitor, why would you not want to do that? Go somewhere where you can create your own history. I knew I had a chance if I came here to do something really special.
FSU has had plenty of special moments in basketball the past few seasons, including la...

Michael Snaer was the California prep player of the year and a McDonald's All American who passed up chances to join any of several of the nation's traditional powerhouses to make a difference at a school trying to climb into the elite.

The Florida State Seminoles will look to pick up where they left off after their ACC tournament win last week and it starts this Friday in March Madness opening round. Having shot up the college basketball betting line with victories over UNC and Duke, its safe to say FSU has arrived a contender on the NCAA Tournament scene.
Bracket Bragging is Here. Play the 2012 March Madness...
2:45 - Florida State -5.5 over St. BonaventureI do not get some of these lines! My thinking is similar to Thursday's Vanderbilt pick over Harvard in that like the Commodores the Seminals are coming off an impressive major conference tournament championship and are a HOT team. Florida State knocked off Duke and North...
The Bearcats second (third) round game agianst the Florida State Seminoles on Sunday night will be televised by TBS. It will take place 30 minutes after the South Florida v Ohio game, which starts at 7:15. It's ok to be tired for work, kiddos. It's the big dance.
Once again, Florida State played down to the level of some inferior competition. But the Seminoles turned it around in the second half against St. Bonaventure to advance in the NCAA Tournament.
Playing in the long shadows of Chris Singleton and Derwin Kitchen the last two seasons, Michael Snaer has blossomed as a junior and could very well lead Florida State deep into the NCAA Tournament.
