State Roundup: Taggart thinks FSU quit against Clemson

October 28, 2018 College Sports in Florida

Sunday, 1 a.m. Question: What’s that gooey substance on the bottom the cleats of the Clemson players? Easy. That’s what’s left of the Florida State Seminoles. Clemson embarrassed the FSU Seminoles Saturday afternoon, winning with ease in a 59-10 victory. Only a late touchdown by FSU kept it from being the worst margin in an […]

State roundup: FSU beats Wake Forest easily

October 21, 2018 College Sports in Florida

Sunday, 2 a.m. FSU was in trouble … again. By now, Seminole fans have come to know the look of their team against the ropes, and here they went again. It was still in the first quarter, and already, Wake Forest had taken a 10-point lead. The Deacons had driven to the FSU 30, where […]

Bulls should handle UConn … just barely

October 19, 2018 College Sports in Florida

Friday, 2 a.m. In college football, the road to success is built on a good defense. Isn’t it? Why, look at unbeaten Cincinnati, which is third in the nation in scoring defense. Or Clemson, which is sixth. Or Alabama, which is seventh. Frankly, seven of the eight unbeaten teams in the nation have scoring defenses […]

Looking back on last weekend in college football

October 18, 2018 College Sports in Florida

Thursday, 3 a.m. 5 Observations 1. When USF has the ball, I think of the possibilities. I think of the weapons. I think in a hurry, because the Bulls may soon be kicking the extra point. But when USF’s opponent has the ball, I wonder if this team can avoid losing three times this year. […]

October 7, 2018 College Sports in Florida

Sunday, 1 a.m. In the trial of Willie Taggart, it looked as if all things would be forgiven. After this, a new trial may begin. There for a while, Taggart’s Seminoles were in charge. They were playing well as they built a 20-point lead, and it seemed as if Taggart’s FSU team would win the […]

The Predictions: Could the Bucs lose to a bye week?

October 6, 2018 College Sports in Florida

Saturday, 3 a.m. This just in. The Bucs are a three-point underdog to “bye” this week. I’m not sure they can cover. Here’s the thing you fear about an open date. By its very description, the receivers are always open. Heck, think of this as the fifth open date that the cornerbacks have had all […]

Looking Back at college football’s weekend

October 4, 2018 College Sports in Florida

Thursday, 4 a.m. 5 Observations 1. Here’s a stunner. College football really doesn’t change from one season to the next. Take last year’s four playoff teams: Alabama, Georgia, Clemson and Oklahoma. They’re all undefeated and ranked in the top seven nationally. Next year, I’ll wager that they’re all firmly in the top 10, too. And the […]

Looking back on the college football weekend

September 27, 2018 College Sports in Florida

5 Observations 1. Bully for the Bulls, being 4-0 and all. But, frankly, it was easier to think bad of them than ever as they squeaked past East Carolina. No, ECU will not have a good year. South Florida has work to do in its week off. 2. At FSU, there is no fish that […]

Looking back on the weekend’s college games

September 12, 2018 College Sports in Florida

Wednesday, 2 a.m. 5 Observations 1. All of USF’s problems on defense Saturday weren’t because of Georgia Tech’s offense. There were plays that made it look like USF had never seen a simple pitch before. The Bulls are fast, and they can score. But will every game go to the final reel? 2. It’s hard […]

One swing, and Choi turns defeat into victory

September 11, 2018 Florida State University

Tuesday, 3 a.m. As home runs go, it only felt as if it was out of this world. After all, it started halfway around it. And as designated hitters go, well, Ji-Man is the man. One out from having their record streak snapped, Ji-Man Choi launched a two-run homer off of Cleveland’s Brad Hand to […]
