Beating FSU was as pleasing as running a hot knife threw Butters!
I would rather sit in my own shyt for four hours than be in Doak.
One of my favorite posts from the FSU game thread:
Now that SAS painted me that picture, I see lots of holes in that FSU winning talent theory. Taggart's such a poor "teacher" his talents have to lunge, grasp & hold. Big top can't cover this big flop.
I've been thinking the same thing over the past few games. He's not a pretty runner, but he's showing to be a "willing runner". He's gaining competence in the throws and runs. Also starting to look more like a "big boy" runner...not afraid of getting hit OR HITTING SOMEONE. He's not going to pass for 400 yds a game, nor is he consistently gonna run for 100/game. But if his skills/abilities and the gameplan can get us 250 yds passing and 40 yds rushing per game out of him it's a really good fit. He's starting to "feel" the R/O at the line of scrimmage at the snap.
As for FassU, I don't see how they're gonna improve under WT. He's shown the same tendencies everywhere he's gone and has the overall W/L record to prove it. He'll hold together a decent class this year (based mostly on telling his cruits that "it's a work in progress" and that they "have to weed out the guys who don't want to buy in"). But by Year 2 it'll be abundantly clear that his previous second year improvements were smoking mirrors. I don't care who he hires. It's a philosophy and system thing, and neither one of his will work for long at the P5 level.
He didnt have second year improvements at his previous jobs. He had a fourth year improvement only at South Fl, which was basically a very lucky QB recruitment and a powder puff schedule.
A little Mick video...not related to thread title...
Why not start a thread called Mick Hubert interview?
During the course of his 5-7 season, Taggart's demeanor has changed considerably... ...His alter ego, it would seem, has also changed from Urkel to Uncle Woody. Lost in the woods and the birds have eaten your trail of bread crumbs will do that to you.
Didn't want to. Mods can move if they want.
But... but... barrel races at practice! And dancing! And a rose-colored purse to wear at games!
Pretty cool video. I was at most of those and the LSU goal line stand is the only one I’m not sure if I was watching or listening. Or maybe I watching but had my eyes covered so was only listening.
I know the architect who designed the remodel addition. I believe he probably thought it was like putting lipstick on a pig.
On Rivals, some noles were railing against WT because of this. Apparently he stuck with Francois, rather than going to Blackmon, to set up next year as a final hoorah with a Sr QB. The agreement was that he wouldn’t bolt and force them to retool again n ‘19. Guess that’s moot.
Lulz.. Francois was the only decent thing about that offense.
He probably has three times the talent of Franks.
Undisciplined and lack of effort were two adjectives announcer Greg McElroy used repeatedly to describe the Florida State football team. It was telling when he said FSU needed to recruit some players who love playing the game of football. FSU was lacking in all departments. The devolution of football player names. Why certain memories remain with us is a mystery. Art Donovan was a defensive lineman for the Baltimore Colts way back in the 60s. Donovan was from the the Bronx and played for Boston College. He was old school. Tough as nails. Played in the days of the minimal face guard of just one bar across the face. Spitting out broken teeth. You get the picture. He was on one of the late night shows, Johnny Carson or some such fare, and was talking about how football players used to have really tough sounding names like Bronko Nagurski. He then mentioned that players of his day had rather sissified names like Gary Collins. Collins was a star wide receiver out of the University of Maryland who was an All-Pro with the Cleveland Browns. Every time I heard the name of Deondre Francois this anecdote kept popping into my head. Bronco Nagurski. Gary Collins, Deondre Francois. And another thing I've noticed is the plethora of hyphenated last names on the backs of current college football players jerseys. I used to think that hyphenated last names were reserved for radical feminists. I guess we are evolving as a society. I guess. The devolution of football players names. Heaven help us.
