"It's likely that #Noles will start 4 true frosh on the OL vs. ND in the @ChampsSportsBwl: Matias (LG), Barron (C), Jackson (RG), Hart (RT)." --Brandon Mellor, Seminoles.com

Stork at C; Krug at LG; Faircloth at RG. Started the UF game, most likely will not against Notre Dame. That is a very, very low amount of combined starts.

5 Things, Bowl Edition: Notre Dame & Florida State

68
  1. Both defenses are efficient at limiting sustained drives: Notre Dame ranks 25th in 3rd down successes against (35.09%); FSU, 18th (33.88%).
  2. Neither offense is that explosive. ND is 56th nationally in 20+ yard big plays on offense (54). FSU is 45th (58).
  3. Both defenses are decent at stopping the big play. Notre Dame ranks #4 nationally in limiting 20+ yard big plays against (32). FSU is 6th (34).

  5. Accordingly, ND played down to a few of the lesser defenses and offenses it faced, but not glaringly so.

Anatomy of a Turnover

Last night I committed a cardinal sin for a sportswriter. I developed the game-story idea before the game had been played. I've become fascinated with Florida State's ability to turn the ball over,...

For the second straight season FSU will enter ACC play without a signature win. This was the Seminoles last chance to get one, but they fell short on both ends of the court dropping the game 82-64....

Florida State at Florida Preview and Game Thread

The Seminoles have accomplished one of their major goals in the out-of-conference season: they've avoided a bad loss. FSU's three losses are to teams ranked (in the Pomeroys) 8th, 16th and 37th,...
