Bowden: Defensive End Kevin McNeil must give better effort

Okay, so now that we've heard all the uproar over lame duck defensive ends coach Jody Allen's decision to start walk on Craig Yarborough over Kevin McNeil and Toshom Stevens, we find out that McNeil hasn't been hustling. That matters, but what is more important is starting the guy who gives FSU the best chance to win. While Yarborough might be in the right position more often, he isn't a viable option because he will be blown away by any decent college lineman. If McNiel plays at a higher level, he should start. Period. More on Jody Allen later, but McNeil has really been a waste so far. After showing a lot of promise, he had the car accident, then for whatever reason (maybe because he thought he wouldn't be eligible for two years), he elected to forgo an entire year of school instead of serving a 3-game suspension for his involvement in the academic scandal. He should be a Junior, but is a Senior. He slacked in summer conditioning and weight lifting, and almost failed out of school, but he can still be valuable to FSU if he just steps his game up and gives more effort.
