The Renegade Report - Noles Survive Reality Check From OKState

+

In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc & Nolebra Kai recap FSU’s 37-31 victory over Oklahoma State.

Some will look at last night’s performance as evidence that the 2014 Seminoles lack the hunger and leadership that propelled the program to a National Title last season. Some will look at last night’s performance as evidence that FSU doesn't have a viable #2 receiver to line up opposite of Rashad Greene. Some will look at last night’s performance as evidence that FSU doesn't have anyone to fill the void left by Timmy Jerningan’s departure. Finally, some will look at last night’s performance as the reality check that this team needed fully cure their championship hangover.

Despite throwing for 370 yards and accounting for 2 touchdowns, it was a below average performance for Jameis Winston thanks to two costly interceptions. The offensive line struggled to create running lanes for the backs and the receivers not named Rashad Greene struggled to consistently get open.

Despite the sub-par performance in all 3 phases, we still think last night will prove to be a blessing in disguise.

Good News/Bad News in participation charts

Looking at the participation chart, FSU didn't rotate much - in fact, more Pokies went into the game than FSU (?!?!).

Looks like FSU's rotation of DL is really telling. Only Mitchell got in, it appears. Featherston is listed, but likely that was only on special teams -- did anyone see him in there otherwise? A couple of others who play at both DE and LB were in - Hoskins, Pugh, Eligwe, so maybe it is better than it seems - but not inside.

This is bad if this reflects FSU's depth, or good if it shows how things can improve ... with Citadel next, maybe Nnadi and Christmas can earn coaches' trust.
