A-C-C! A-C-C! A-C-C! A-C-C! A-C-C! A-C-C! A-C-C! A-C-C!

So last night was not particularly satisfying. The offense is still embarrassing. Manuel is a senior so it will be interesting to see what happens next year (as are seven other returning starters). I guess I'm guardedly optimistic about the future. The program is totally Jimbo's now, I think he's the coach for the future but shit. There are still those lingering issues that continue to plague FSU, the offense just moves the ball, they have two bad quarters in the season and miss out on, well we'll never know. (FWIW, 'Bama played a bad game, ND played several bad games...) I guess my point is that I'm not sure what the ceiling is for FSU. I'm not entirely sure it is much higher than last night. Maybe if they were in a better conference, that would help, IRDK.

Side note: for FLMM, SEC referee crew for Orange Bow. NIU Penalties: 5-40 FSU 8-96

ACC CHamp: FSU: 6-39 GT: 3-25

UF/FSU: 12-101 3-20

The season FSU/Opponents: 81-713 64-549

Jimbo: "these seniors laid a foundation" for a national championship.

Also, here's my biggest question following the Orange Bowl and I think it is one that everyone ought to consider because it is quite profound and troubling.

Who on earth, uses a Discover card and why? Pretty sure I don't know anyone who does. So its basically a credit card that lacks Visa/MC ubiquity and AmEx service, right?

I had one when I was in college. They will basically give anyone a card with a relatively high limit, so it's good for people without a lot of credit.

There isn't a single NIU starter that anyone would say is better than their FSU counterpart. Their linemen looked like they worked at Krispy Kreme. Their "star" quarterback looked slow, unathletic, and small. Their d-line was a bunch of fat guys who still managed to weigh an average of 55 lbs less than the guy lined up across from them.
BUT WOOHOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WE BEAT NIU BY 21 POINTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Off to find some Angostura

That was pretty pathetic. This Florida State team is made up of top 5-10 classes nationally and NIU hung with them for 3 quarters despite being athletically outclassed.

I wouldn't say Lynch looked slow though, he broke contain and burned FSU a bunch of times... problem is the dude couldn't hit water if he threw at the ocean. Missed an easy long bomb and that interception in FG range was egregious. They had some speedy WR's who could probably KR for some D1 teams... that's about it.

puzzled.gif Not sure we watched the same guy. I saw him repeatedly try to turn the corner and get stopped. He rushed 23 times for 44 yards, with half those yards coming on one run. And II'm not sure he was sacked, so he pretty much rushed 22 times for 22 yards.
I agree with the passing, he was overthrowing everything and looked shellshocked.

This is how I remembered it also. I think it was well into the 2nd half before either team recorded a sack.

Florida better tighten up before this game is out of reach for them to come back.  They have a great defense but were one of the worst passing teams in the country this.  They aren't necessarily built to come back from a big deficit.

Wow, Louisville putting the screws to Florida. NEVER expected that.

Man Florida's offense is horrible.

On the flip side, the blue jersey orange pants combo looks pretty sweet. I wish Florida would break out that color combo a little more often.

Yeah, this game is not turning out as I expected. I thought Florida would stomp Louisville, but the opposite is happening. confused.gif

Guess Florida thought they were playing another FCS team and could play down to them. Don't think Florida is going to score two TDs in the last minute or whatever to win this one.

Agreed, I like their orange jersey and white pant combo as well.  Turn out the lights, the party is over.

Florida's kick returner is fast.
