    They have an infinite supply, culled from their 3rd tier, 3rd-rate application pool.

    Always remember the Nole-silencing nuclear option: “No one EVER got into UF but not F$U. No one. Ever.”

    Shuts them up and shuts them down every time.

        Just finished the recent On The Bench podcast with the 247 fsu writers. Here's the rundown,

        1. Ja'Khi Douglas' recruitment is basically still open. He is taking all his official visits. What was odd is that Newberg said most of the teams on his list, like Bama and LSU, aren't recruiting him at all. We are on his list for an official as well.

        2. Their stud DT prospect, Manny Rogers has only been playing high school football for a year. He is a complete project and a 6'6 one at that.

        3. The coaching staff is expecting a "mere fraction" of the elite talent at Saturday Night Live this year compared to last year. The fsu guys said they can get "very few" confirmations from players that they will be attending.

        4. Runningback recruiting continues to be a nightmare as it looks like they have struck out on the top 2 players on their board.

        5. If things don't go well at SNL, it will be time to begin going to plan b and plan c guys.

        Podcasts like this are sweet music to my ears.

                I'm planning to do some research on Boise in the next few weeks. FSU is a 4.5 point favorite. I might bet the mortgage on Boise!

                  I can totally see 2-10.

                  Taggart's offense was generally called "a high school offense". He fired himself in the middle of the season, promoted a guy who'd never called games, then fired that guy and hired another guy whose never called a game. (No, he didn't call the plays at FAU or Houston.)

                    As much as I enjoy their dysfunction, I can’t help but wonder how is this possible at a program at this level? No playbook? WTF.
                    I had really hoped their financial situation would force them to keep WiLLLLLLLie for 3-4 years. He may be gone by November.

                      Well, they don't have a head coach - why should they have a playbook?

                        No playbook is just something that can’t happen. What a train wreck.

                        They hire a guy for his offense, he’s so bad at offense he ditches his offense. Hires a new guy to install a new offense with some plays that might make them not a laughing stock and the guy doesn’t bring a playbook.

                        You can’t make this stuff up. Boise will win by double digits I’m sure of it

                          Manziel won a heisman without a playbook. So did Mariota and RG3. A lot of teams don't use one. None of them have won a title though. A guy who didn't use a playbook was just hired by the Arizona Cardinals.

                              Seems to me that their “offense” will be condition based. Like an “if this than that” kind of scenario based scheme. I mean they can’t seriously not have plays right? I hope I’m wrong and they are seriously THAT dysfunctional but even for clowns that would be a low, like, sub shark humper low...

                                They have plays. Kliff Kingsbury said he would go over the play on the whiteboard or whatever he used to draw up the play. The players would take their own notes to help them remember. They never received actual playbooks. They then ran and reran the play until the staff felt the players had it. Taggert said they did the same thing during the spring. According to Manziel and Mariota, the QB doesn't call plays or audible or even run the huddle. He just runs the play. Hence, the simplicity part.

                                  Well maybe so, but I don't see a Manziel, a Mariota, or a RGIII on that roster.

                                  I don't either. I'm just saying that offense can be effective. But, everyone I've ever seen run that style of offense was in some way soft and had a soft defense. Every..Single..One. Briles has only been truly calling plays for 2 years (FAU & Houston) and never against a real opponent. He did it in spots at Baylor but only in blowouts.

                                    Briles never called plays for a day. Kiffy walked around with a giant playsheet was mouthing the plays to signaller or kid running in the plays. Applewhite called his own too but he was more of a gameplan it ahead of time and just run the sequence I told you sort of guy, much like Butterteeth and Nussdrunk

                                          Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
