Surely they didn’t play well. I don’t think having Ponder would have made much of a difference but for the score. The VT did a great job. I still say the Florida State team did far better this year than the were ‘supposed’ to have done and I’m glad I got to watch at least two games this year. The Bucs are kind of having the same season (doing better than they are supposed to do and will come up short). The Bowl Game will be good and Jimbo will have next year to prepare for now!
So tonight, as unlikely as it would appear….. FSU is playing VT in the ACC Championship. If they pull it out tonight with snow forecast, it will send a strong message to the football world that FSU under Jimbo is back. Not just that, but years in advance of what many have though it would take. The leadership of any team is not something you can put a dollar amount on and it’s obvious that the design of the turnover for BB and Jimbo was done for all the right reasons. I think that very plan has a lot to do with how well they have done this year. Most teams would have derailed completely with the new complex Off/Def that they are working.
Good luck tonight Noles, I’ll be watching from Long Island. -B
