Looking back on the weekend in college football

November 29, 2018 College Sports in Florida

Thursday, 4 a.m. 5 Observations 1. They weren’t Chip Kelly bad. They weren’t Chad Morris bad. But you could certainly list FSU as among the nation’s most disappointing teams. Why? From 2014-2017, the Seminoles were 4th, 3rd, 3rd and sixth in the nation in recruiting. That ought to translate into something, shouldn’t it? 2. I […]

November 25, 2018 College Sports in Florida

Sunday, 4 a.m. It was bad enough that FSU was beaten. It was worse that they were clubbed with history books. — It had been five years since the Seminoles lost to Florida. — It had had bee 10 years since FSU gave up at least 40 points to Florida. — It had been 36 […]

Looking back on the weekend of college football

November 21, 2018 College Sports in Florida

Wednesday, 4 a.m. 5 Observations 1. I think UCF scores, and scores again, and scores some more. They will score so many points their extra point kicker will beg for mercy. 2. Aren’t perceptions amazing? A year ago, FSU lost six games and Florida lost seven, but for some reason, the expectations of FSU were […]

Looking back at college football’s weekend

November 15, 2018 College Sports in Florida

Thursday, 4 a.m. 5 Observations 1. Charlie Strong says that USF, a program in reverse, isn’t big enough nor deep enough. So now Willie Taggert has to feel bad about that, too? He’s in control of two slumping teams. 2. Most of the impact made by the Florida schools in their heyday was because of […]

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. […]

State roundup: Miami edges FSU; Florida beats LSU

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 […]
