FSU's season reminds me a lot of the year Tennessee won the NC in 98. They just got done with the Peyton-era, when they were consistently thought of as a NC contender, only to blow it in one form or another (always Florida), so when you lose him, you wouldn't think much of the next team, but Tee Martin steps in and everything clicks. FSU was considered a heavy favorite for NC contender last year with an easy schedule and a senior EJ Manuel, but they blow it one form or another and this year, not much was thought of them. In steps Jameis...

Yes and no.
Yes because he clearly has room to improve to become a reliable NFL QB.
No because his stock won't be higher than this year given he loses 4 OL and Hyde and every defense will key on him now.
|6 days 1 hour ago||I have no idea what he'll do||
I have no idea what he'll do but it wouldn't surprise me if he left early. His draft status will not be higher than it is now, considering they'll be breaking in 4 new OL, a new RB. And there is a decent chance he'll have a B1G championship in his belt and maybe a nat'l championship game appearance.

While I agree with your sentiment, you at least have to add the caveat that Florida has been wrecked by injuries, though were closer to full health at the time of the Miami game. Could say something similar about NW (Colter/Mark injuries).

Didn't happen with David Dawson. Didn't happen with Henry Poggi.
I know it's happened before (Pharoah Brown, etc), but it doesn't always happen.

I'm pretty sure that's Cato June in the photo....not that it matters much
EDIT: Aaaand the photo was updated....I've made a Michigan Difference on Mgoblog

I could have swore it was Kenechi Udeze, who had 3 sacks in that game, that said it. Having trouble tracking down the quote via google search.

I actually think it was the 2004 Rose Bowl against USC. The one where Navarre was sacked 9 times.

Man, as a student from 98-02 that had hockey season tix for 2 of those years and worked doing stats for the athletic dept in the hockey pressbox for another, I am incredibly saddened to hear that Yost is a shell of itself these days. Back then, I honestly thought hockey games were 1000 times better than football games (in part because I hated the noon football games that were the standard). I never would have thought that Yost would basically become Crisler, circa 98-02. This saddens me to no end.

I'm 99% positive that Devin could run 27 QB sneaks IN A ROW for over 27 yards.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||Right. I was responding to||
Right. I was responding to the OP who said he didn't see the unblocked LB so Fitz should have cut to the right middle hole, except there is that unblocked LB....not to mention that Lewan and Glasgow are pushing that DT towards that vacant hole in the picture.
|10 weeks 3 days ago||In the final picture, Lewan||
In the final picture, Lewan and Glasgow are still doubling the DT and eliminating him. The UConn player to the left on the edge of the picture (just left of Lewan in the pic) is unblocked.

I don't know....I think a whole lot of the reason he got fired was because he didn't have all the support amongst the alums, donors, former players, etc. It was a divided program and that's what needed to change the most.

While the interior has been a problem, I'm not willing to give a complete pass to the T's. I'll be honest, I expected a little bit better from both of them thus far....not that they are playing poorly. TE blocking has been a major issue as well.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||That's not the problem with||
That's not the problem with this year's line...the problem is having a lack of upper classmen on the OL. Glasgow and Kalis are Hoke recruited guys. Miller seems to be an issue of a lack of fit, but Lewan/Schofield would be guys Hoke would recruit and want.
|10 weeks 4 days ago||While I agree that having a||
While I agree that having a OL with 4th and 5th year guys gives you a better chance of having a good OL and a good running game, it's not a certainty....see last year's UM line
LT- Lewan (4th year)
LG - Barnum (5th year)
C - Mealer (5th year)
RG - Omameh (5th year)
RT - Schofield (4th year)

Here's the thing about OSU defense....Cal only averaged 3.6 yds/rush and 7.0 YPA passing....which paints a much better picture than "gave up over 500 yards". Cal ran 90 plays.

To be fair, this game could give the Akron players confidence going into the rest of their season. Their physical talent/ability isn't different, but their mental talent/ability probably is.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||I disagree. The RB's did not||
I disagree. The RB's did not put up stats like that under RR. I think you can put it on a good, veteran OL for how good the RB's did in 2011.
And coaches can do an awful lot in 6 months timeframe....just look at what Mattison did in the same 6 month timeframe. Molk won the Rimington and Lewan has turned into a future 1st round pick, that didn't happen without coaching. I'm waiting to judge Funk until these recruits get a couple years in the program. Watching Kalis' development this season will be telling too.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Are we already forgetting||
Are we already forgetting Fitz putting up 1000 yards and 5.6 yds/carry in 2011?
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Considering we trust Lewan||
Considering we trust Lewan and Schofield as good players and the list of walk-ons, Freshmen (RS or otherwise) that are good OLinemen is very very very short, I think it's unfair to put this on Funk. But like everyone else, the OL was the most disturbing part of this game. We thought that the interior would be better after last year, but to me, so far, it's worse. Devin and Fitz have had guys all over them almost instantly way too often this season. And I think this comes down to consistency, not ability....which is what Hoke has been saying in the pressers. We've seen dynamite plays from Kalis and to a lesser extent, Glasgow and Miller, but being consistent has not been there. Consistency is almost always the biggest issue for young guys. So at least it can get better....in leaps and bounds hopefully.
|11 weeks 6 days ago||Any way you want to slice||
Any way you want to slice this, this is a harbinger of what this team is at this point. I definitely had my hopes raised after last week's game and even pictured the possibility of the young interior O-Line and the D-Line gelling by end of season to maybe even be Nat'l title contenders....but this bursts any and all of that. And makes me worry about possibly winning the Legends division. This team will probably still win 9 games, but the ceiling has been lowered to me.
|12 weeks 1 day ago||If I remember correctly,||
If I remember correctly, current or former players (not working as coaches ala Singletary) are not allowed to initiate contact with recruits, unless they knew them before they were recruits. I seem to remember everyone being in a kerfuffle about James Onwaulu (current ND WR) tweeting at Jashon Cornell, but it passed w/o incident because they went to the same HS.....though if I remember correctly, wasn't Tajh Boyd tweeting at Artavis Scott this summer? Either way, it doesn't sound like CP was initiating contact here, so maybe it was just a better safe than sorry situation.

Besides the obvious answer of "it's going to be a really small class and UM already has 5 commits", they could be checking out his grades, etc. I doubt it's due to talent.

Also, see Antoine Winfield....the Buckeye I had the most respect for as a kid, dude was an awesome player.

From what little we've seen in these highlights, Funchess looks improved and that could be a real difference maker this season. If he can put it all together, he can be our #2 receiver this year.

Brian, is there any interest in doing a "Looking back at the Tea Leaves from Fall Camp" post after the season to either realize how accurate or ridiculous the bullet points from this article were based on a zoomed in 3-minute clip of a scrimmage? Would be interesting.
