Excellent feet and I do not give a damn about his NFL potential.  I am trying to win a national championship, not a super bowl.


Good get Michigan.

07/02/2010 - 2:17pm That's where you come in

I can only go by what the university depth chart and Phil Steele have.  If the starters are incorrect, then I endeavor to get them right.

This certainly has more value in a reflective capacity than a predictive one.  We can go back and see, as I discussed in the article, who ended up playing and how much.  From that we can look at the size of the front seven.  I know FSU fans are excited about getting Bobby out after a decade of nonsense.  Now there is an actual strength program in Tallahassee.  Just look at the results so far in a short amount of time  

The number that the elite defenses eclipse does vary from year to year.  2009 was a smaller year, overall.  2008 was enormous with the BC and Wake Forest monster defenses, along with USC, Florida, UNC, and Bama.

could you send me the data on this for the ACC? I'd love to write a post about this, crediting you, or perhaps you write one and I'll link to that. Great work.

03/02/2010 - 5:33pm As long we as can MedDq 3-4 kids per season

I'm fine with it

03/02/2010 - 3:46pm Counter Argument

You're penalizing kids for getting career-ending injuries?

03/02/2010 - 1:58pm Thank You

The Med DQ rule seems like something that the NCAA simply cannot regulate because it would mean going against the advice of a medical doctor. It's likely here to stay.

03/02/2010 - 1:15pm How do Med DQ's figure in?

I know some teams (us) are trying to really ramp up the use of the medical disqualification stuff.

02/23/2010 - 2:53pm Completely disagree

The NCAA doesn't show any mercy for self reporting. Never ever self report anything.

02/23/2010 - 2:38pm I hope y'all don't get a penalty

Every team out there serious about playing big boy football (OSU, UM, USC, Texas, OU, LSU, Bama, UF, FSU, and a few others), use their quality control guys.

Did y'all self report? Please tell me you didn't have some douche on your own staff turn you in.

02/18/2010 - 10:27pm Notes for the 2011 board

Jay Rome is considered the top player in Georgia, is a 5* lock, and is also a Clemson lock (his dad played football and basketball there and Jay loves the place). FSU and UGA aren't even bothering putting much effort on this kid, and he is only 35 minutes from Tallahassee.

Javares McRoy will probably go where his older bro committed (TTech)

Kelvin Benjamin is pretty much all UF/ Miami. WVU if he doesn't end up w/ grades.

Trey Pettis is an FSU commitment and his dad loves our OLine coach.

Jernigan is a 5* lock and is in contention for the #1 player overall.

Karlos Williams is an FSU lock. His dad is a booster and his brother plays for us.

I do not see FSU taking LaQuentin Smith, but we might.

The state of Florida might end up having 50 guys rated 4* or higher.

06/10/2009 - 1:55pm Spread n Shred

I didn't do a great job of pointing this out, but FSU is not moving towards the spread and shred. We want to run more 3WR1TE1RB/ 2WR2TE1RB type stuff (or use a fullback as an HBack).

We're trying to install what the Broncos did. Remember Minnesota under Glenn Mason with Maroney? I'm told that's what we want.

We ran a lot of spread stuff last year because we had 7 upperclassmen wideouts who were 4* or better. Teams had to respect the throw game (and DID, playing with two deep safeties all the time). We didn't throw it well, as our protection was pretty poor, and our QB made mistakes. But teams still played two safeties deep. This made it a lot easier on our OLine for run blocking.

This year we are light on wideouts (you may have heard??), and will be running more of what Minnesota does.

We want to use an 18" split (found that out last night from someone who has to line up in the system ;) ), which is a lot smaller than what Michigan wants to run. Still, the double team principles are very similar and the plays are very similar.

I am glad you asked this. In part 3 or 4, I am discussing splits. The spread n shred allows much greater gains, but also a lot greater penetration. Gibbs addresses this exact point.

Again guys, thanks for the linkage.
