One more game to go till we get an offensive coordinator. I almost wish that FSU was going to play Kent State. The way the team is playing I’d be happy to escape with another win (any win) just to see EJ graduate and Jimbo get a OC.
Offense looked awful against a really poor GT defense. EJ is just a mess. He throws 2 good passes, then a bad one, then forces throws, just doesn’t seem to have a feel for what to do at the right time. He could have run 4 or 5 times for 15 yards but just stood there not knowing what to do. I really like the young man but he is limited as a QB.
I still think Jimbo is the bigger issue at FSU. They should be dominating teams and just seem to skate by. With the Gators resurgence, I’m not certain he will be able to get FSU over the hump. He’s becoming the next Spurrier…. great offensive mind who is winning mostly because of his defense.
If they play the OB game like they did last night, they’ll lose by 20.
I think Jimbo’s inexperience as a HC is coming through and he may be over his head in all the responsibilities he has undertaken. It’s also possible that he feels most comfortable with hiring guys around his age, the only old guy on staff is Rick Trickett.
I was so convinced we were going to lose after the first possession of the second half (3 and out). I just started thinking, hmm, 16-3 over NC State in the 4th quarter/ 20-13 over FU in the 4th quarter.
I was very happy with the play of the D. The Williams brothers, Timmy, and MEJ had big games. We out-rushed them and held them to 15 points, I couldn’t have asked for more out of a D that’s losing its coordinator.
EJ has one more game and he is gone. I never thought I would be excited for him to leave after some of the wins he had as a young player. He just doesn’t seem to get it. Rashad Green and Wild n Free had solid games. We need an O-coord.
Hopkins still sits tied for most FGs made in NCAA history, I’m really hoping he hits one in the OB and also wins the Groza. EJ fumbled in FG range AGAIN last night, he has cost Hopkins 3 attempts this season.
I’m glad we are playing Louisville instead of Kent St. or Rutgers in the OB. A few guys on their team will have a homecoming with the game in Miami, including Teddy Bridgewater- should be fun.
