Even Duke would probably bend FSU over, so much for national championship hopes! Better hope they can at least get a low end bowl game now.Too many mistakes and too many penalties etc. etc etc.. Perception and potential means you haven't done anything yet.It could be worse FSU could be Miami or Florida! Remember they were both ranked in the Top 10 or 12 last season. FSU still doesn't have the experience or skill of a National Contender yet. jmo

UF is breaking in an entirely new coaching staff and got killed by the 1 and 2 in the country and had to play with a true freshman QB in those games against 2 of the best defenses in the nation. Miami is recovering from scandals and is breaking in a new coach as well. FSU however started out #5 and all their fans were beating their chest and saying "FSU is back baby!" Not only that, they were expecting a title. Well, guess what? FSU has lost 3 straight. The vaunted defense has given up 35 points in the last 2 games. Oh and FSU lost to WAKE FOREST. Win your lousy ACC before you talk about being "back"Of the "big 3" in Florida, FSU has the most to be embarrassed about. Jimbo FIsher was supposed to be the savior at FSU. Yet I see the same undisciplined play that I saw in the waning years of Bowden's career.FSU is still the same old 4-5 loss team that we have seen the last 7 or so years.
Exactly my point. FSU has the most to be embarrassed about and the fewest excuses to cover it up. FSU has the most talent of the 3 teams in Florida right now (I think this changes once Muschamp and Weis get their recruits coming in)FSU has been consistently doing nothing with pretty good talent for around a decade now. Thats on coaching. Fisher has not improved the team much IMO. I thought this year's team would be great. Specifically the defense. Obviously I was wrong. This year's FSU team is already being called one of the great early season duds in college football history. They really, really did not deserve that #5 ranking based on what they did last year. They didn't even win the weak ACC last year. They beat the worst Florida team in a decade that could not coach its way out of a paper bag, and they beat a south carolina team in which Lattimore was knocked out early and Garcia was out to lunch. thats about the extent of their marquee wins last year. If a 4 loss season in the ACC is "back" to FSU fans, then you have some very low standards. Glad that FSU is getting a reality check this year, because their fans have been insufferable over the offseason.
I am forever grateful for what Meyer did here....before last year. last year however, Meyer was on his way out and the coaching was a mess. To add to it, Steve Addazio was running the offense into the ground game after game. Last year's team was one of the worst coached UF teams in a long time. They had no identity. I just find it funny that all the FSU fans are beating their chests over beating a team that could not get out of its own way. but hey, I guess since it was their first win over UF in 7 years, FSU fans were starved for a little success. Still doesn't change the fact that they had 4 losses in a weak conference. You must have been in the sensible minority of FSU fans at the start of this season. Because most of them were thinking championship this year. Heck there were even anaylysts who said EJ Manuel was a Heisman candidate.The USCe game, you can't always count on the other team's best player injuring himself, and unless you are saying FSU was trying to injure Lattimore, FSU got very lucky that he wasn't able to play most of that game. As for Garcia, he is a total headcase, and there is no telling which Garcia will show up game to game. You could get the one that beat Bama....or you could get the one who couldn't beat Kentucky. Garcia was more interested in the alcohol than football, and he has already been kicked off the team.As for UF, Going forward I am behind Muschamp 100 %. Its his first year, and of course there are going to be some bumps in the road. I am excited to see what his first recruiting class will do. Hopefully we will get a big running back. Right now all we have are scatbacks that have been nullified by the speed of Bama and LSU's defenses. I am not going to make any excuses for this year. I didn't expect UF to do much this year. Now we are starting freshmen at QB, so I honestly wouldn't be surprised if we didn't make a bowl game, especially because we don't have the luxury of playing a bunch of patsies in conference like FSU does. Also, a little early to say the new coaching staff won't do as well as the old one yes?Edit: Oh almost forgot, one of your top recruits for next year (legacy Mario Edwards) has already decommitted from FSU after the embarrassing loss to Wake Forest. In fact, Pender and Winston were all on OV's elsewhere this weekend and all had something along the same lines to say about FSU losing to wake forest. Looks like the Jimbo honeymoon may be coming to an end
After a 35-30 loss on the road to Wake Forest, the Seminoles dropped to 2-3 with three straight losses and their only wins coming against Louisiana-Monroe and Charleston Southern. Now the ‘Noles are paying the price in recruiting, as five of their most prized verbal commitments — DE Mario Edwards, QB Jameis Winston, DT Justin Shanks, RB Mario Pender and WR Marvin Bracy — are publicly wavering. Don’t forget DE/LB Dante Fowler, whose commitment can only be described as soft.From a recruiting blog. I wasn't making it up.Not decommitted yet, so I was misled by the ticker on ESPN that stated they were, but they are wavering and looking else ware. I think Edwards goes to OU, don't know about the others. As for FSU's last two wins....well lets just say they were against less than spectacular teams. Not overly impressed by beats downs of Duke and Maryland, and I don't think recruits are either. When you begin the season #5 with title aspirations and drop out of the top 25 after 3 straight losses, one to a team that should not be on the same field with you, recruits are going to start wavering.Now about the Gators. I expected Florida to suck this year. Add to it your senior QB going down and having to throw true freshmen in there, along with your fastest back being down would throw a wrench into any offensive coordinator's job. Plus Muschamp hasn't even gotten the chance to get his recruits in yet. The current players we have are not meant for Weis' system, they are leftovers from the Meyer era and are mostly meant to run a spread offense, which Weis is trying to change. This year I agree. Florida sucks badly. UF has a good chance of missing a bowl this year. Even Vandy scares me. Florida is a team in a major transition sage. Been a while since I have had to use this phrase as a Gator but "Wait till next year" Muschamp has the #3 recruiting class coming in.PS: I would love to see FSU play LSU or Bama. Even though FSU has such a weak conference schedule remaining, I think they have one more conference loss coming.
