Noles Hitting Rock Bottom ...or More to Fall?


Recommended Posts

Felt like I was in the twilight zone all week due to life's curve balls and then... yesterday...38-3 at halftime ...first time in the series a team has scored 50 points...biggest Noles beatdown since 1976,  10,000 fans in a "sold out" game....coaches and commentators calling the shots from their living room

Everything changes.  30 years from now Armwood and Miami Central could be winless doormats.  ColumbiaFan could be an IMG fan:blink:.  Am seeing things now I never thought I would see.  Life has other plans.

The Noles will be back, though it will take a couple of years. Wille Taggert was a disaster as a pick for the head coach position. He was mediocre at USF, and unproven in a short stint in Oregon. FSU deserved a better coach. Now, they have a coach that can lead then back to the top, but it will take a coupe of recruiting classes to get there. I'm not a big FSU fan, but I always admired their quality of play. They'll be back.

I am not going to complain. To some extent, FSU's fall is UCF's gain. UCF is in my backyard. FSU is not. Two of my immediate family members have degrees from UCF (undergraduate and post graduate), so while I am not a rabid fan, my sympathies lie with the Knights!

As a Canes fan there hasn't been a lot to be optimistic about for  the last 15 years - The Coastal in 2017; The nostalgic beat down of Notre Dame and Four straight against FSU. 

In two weeks, they need to use that opportunity to create doubt in Clemson's mind of their invincibility. I feel good about the type players and buy-in of this season. A proven QB and an OC that brought Miami into the modern world.

W or L, they need to keep progressing this system and not have those let downs against teams they should roll. 

Miami as a program had to earn their swagger back, not play on reputation, before this transformation could occur.  It will take some time for FSU to,  given the fall-off since Jimbo.  And let's face it, With UF,  UCF and Miami playing well, recruiting isn't going to get any easier.

Columbia, the NFL Draft is an excellent gauge of talent. The SEC dominates annually and SEC fans have the numbers on their side. Run the stats & come back, I will be waiting. However I warn you, you are about to be completely destroyed. You may never recover on the board. I plead with you to reconsider this intellectual ass-fking-whooping. As a neutral poster I don't want to do this to you, but expect fire and fury. My AWACS are collecting data as I type.

You were maybe -2 years old when I started following this and I'm 32. Time to let the big dog eat.

Yeah and how many of the players percentage wise could likely be traced back to the top 5 schools?

 

The bama, LSU, Auburn, UF, UGA teams can brag as they have proven themselves on the field but these fans of the other teams who hop on the bandwagon of the good teams when it comes bowl season is embarrassing

Until the failed James Blackman experience ends, it will get worse. Norvell needs to clean house. Start Rodemaker or Purdy. Who cares at this point? We know they can't win with him. We don't know about the others. Jordan Travis isn't really a qb unless you are going to run option or rpo only, but he is a nice weapon to have. Just not as a starting qb.

    • Yes, this is what is going to happen. Your good buddy Rick Darlington is heading back from the Peach State to act as Judge, Jury, and Executioner.  He will use his "loud voice" and "animated features" to make sure that these criminals have what is coming to them.  
    • I heard after all the bad calls you made you should be wearing these stripes instead    
    • Perspective, I think that is some really great style. I think that would look great in a court room! 
    • Sorry for being absent here. Been getting a lot of things situated here in the new year plus working on All-State teams so a lot going on. Also working on relaunching a podcast so been trying to lay down the groundwork on that. One of the things I am planning on doing this year from this point forward is focus more on the board and keep a better focus on things. As for Old School Lion, all I can say at this point is I revoked him being a moderator along with everyone else until I can get a better focus on that. I may add @peezy28 back as a moderator in the near future, but the only other person at this point is going to be @SportsNut25who I have paid to do some work for me from time to time and I have a complete trust with him with things on the backend of this website. Old School Lion was also one of the ones that made the inflaming comments and I messaged him about it. Instead of having a conversation about it and why he did it, he never read it and basically walked from the message board. I won't tolerate what he did from anyone. As @Perspectivehas said, I had to make a choice and really it comes down to it, I don't have a bucket full of money to survive and defend a lawsuit. It comes down to living life as comfortably as I can in my means or fighting big bucks. I have to chose my battles wisely. If you all want to contribute and support what I do (it is not cheap... server space is not cheap either), I will soon be setting up a Patreon where you can be a Patron of this site. The Patreon will also have ties into the Podcast and the plan I have, but is all I can say for now as the plan is not final just yet.  Also, one more thing... if you all have a suggestion for me for the message board or the website itself (topics, stories, ideas, etc), please let me know here or send me a message.  Josh
    • Thanks for the fashion tip, Jambun.   I just got back from my tailor.   What do you think?
