Hard practices make you hard, but by about midway through the season they work against you. 

For a team that grinds all season long, from spring ball through fall camp and deep into the season, Bikini Bowl practices may have been the better strategy.* 

*Jabrill's hamstring approves this message.

And a chicken little response.


If we're winning it's because we took a "business like" approach to the game.

Don't switch just because we're losing. Last year the "business like" approach worked...we all liked that we were practices while they were at the beach.

Michigan is losing because Speight missed every throw in the first half, we're getting killed at the LOS, and Dymonte Thomas decided to forget his responsibility in zone coverage.

They also have Dalvin Cook and we do not. That's why we need Najee or a world class back. Also I don't think we Have a draftable o-lineman. None of them have ever impressed me. No mean streak, very unathletic and the only one that was got hurt. Again our o-line sucks and down goes smith. Touchdown!!. Again we have to throw, just like the lions. Wilson, Najee whoever. Please get some o-lineman who are not afraid to hurt the other team. We need hutchinson's, Long's and Jumbo Elliots. Showing my age, but we always used to run the fuckin ball.

Speight is playing so scared.

The OL is playing like 5 pussies.

Our DBs are in a daze.

...and that's the game.


Speight needs to man up and stop peeing down his leg.

The OL needs to man the fuck up and block someone.

DBs need to wake up and realize if we have ANY shot, they cannot score again. Not even a FG.

pretty much everything that could go wrong DID!..Frankly were lucky to be down by 14. FSU looks the like team that wants to be there...BUT we get the ball first and if we can get a score were back in it so all is not lost...

Anybody else scared for what this will do for our recruiting?

I dont see how najee, Solomon, tuefle, gay, fillaga, or becton will want to come here after seeing this

If this continues our chances at najee are ZERO

We've always know this season our o-line is not great.  We've struggled offensively against every decent defense this season.  And, we're playing the best pass rusher in the country.  And, he's dominating either true freshman or guys playing out of position.  I just think we didn't realize it'd be this bad.  And, we probably assumed we'd have Peppers to help slow down Cook, which would have helped.  But, FSU is just a better team.  They are clearly faster and more aggressive and better able to execute their game plan.  They are just better.  It's not about want to or preperation.  Our guys are doing their best and give them credit for keeping this game from being a blowout.
