Not saying that he's having guys "take plays off". Just saying he's saving their legs for the big games. A win by more than 7 points does absolutely nothing towards winning another national championship. Beating Sparty and Michigan has everything to do with winning a big ten and national championship. I'm not saying he's for sure doing it but why else would we go from having cardale run for 100 yards effectively against Va tech (another must win) to barely running against lesser opponents?
Could be true. But it seems he always unleashed the passing game for the big ones. Number 1 vs 2 with Troy we were practically a modern spread offense. Same with the rose bowl and sugar bowl games in 09 and 10.
I just think he knows that this is truly a 2 game season. Regardless of whether or not we go undefeated, if we beat MSU and Michigan we are most likely playoff bound. If you lose that MSU game there's no way you can win a big ten or national championship
We are absolutely awful in the red zone and on third down. We can't consistently run the ball. Our problems are a lot bigger than just turnovers and penalties.
Offense we ran with JT last year >>>>>>>>>> This offense. This could be the most dangerous read option team of all time and were forcing a pro style system onto it . We have plenty of time to work it out but this is not the system this team was recruited for
She is AWFUL. Had to hear her a few times talking on the college football podcast and she's unbearable. Just sounds like a complete idiot and giggles the whole time.
No. They don't deserve top 5. Oregon isn't even ranked this week
Rick Pitino and Bobby Petrino..., Louisville is a cradle of filth
Notre dame and USC
it's all about the (any team that is playing cincinnati)
This is what I think happened too.
A few major differences IMO.... For one, FSUs defense in 2013 was the best in America or atleast in the top 5 . They lost their DC and dropped into the 40s the next year. Their offense went from outstanding and efficient to very turnover prone, and neither side of the ball made much improvement by the end of the year. Through 4 games, our defense has been a top 10 unit statistically, and while our offense is bad right now, it has made improvements every week. Plus the whole QB issue has split reps from the starters, whereas jameis was the undisputed starter on that team. We are on a path to be elite by the end of the year, FSU just stayed as mediocre as they started.
I think he would be outstanding on ESPN
Thank you! Worst show on espn along with his and hers. Absolute garbage
My heart wants to say beck was a terrible hire and the offense is garbage right now... We all expected the best offense in school history and what were seeing is far from that. But the reality is we have 2 coaches making a transition, and 2 qbs that have had limited reps and tons of pressure to be perfect. We have 8 more games until MSU to figure it all out, and the reality is we don't need to be perfect right now. We just need to improve. And I don't see that not happening with this team, they're too talented . Just have to be patient and accept that not every game will be perfect, even if it's hard to watch at times.
I agree completely. Lsu and ole miss both deserve it a lot more than we do right now
Who has a better win then that besides ole miss over alabama?
Really fun to watch this defense play. We've been so mistake prone the last few years. Grear to see an elite defense back in Columbus
Hate the play calling, hate the o line play. Should be running much more effectively then we are. We have plenty of time to improve though before msu
Last year I was pretty protective of our schedule because we needed it to be ok to get in.... This year to be honest.... It freaking sucks. As a fan it is just incredibly boring and takes fun out of the games. If we win, we were expected to and it better be a blowout or wale we "underperformed". If we lose, it's a huge upset and ruins the season. It's not our fault that the conference sucks but it's just awful to watch.
You're right. Totally forgot about that. Concussion or something like that wasn't it?
Nah I think you all are sleeping on him a little bit. Have to remember he was hurt last year guys. There's a reason why he played freshman year and jalin didn't . He's got a ton of talent. They will rotate a ton, and jalin will play a lot outside is my guess. It looked like even last night we had Braxton and Samuel on the field at once. Well have sets with 3-4 of em in
Braxton freakin miller
