Willie Taggart held his weekly press conference yesterday, and he made a couple notable statements:
- A, Taggart confirmed that edge rusher Joshua Kaindoh will be out for the rest of the season following an injury he suffered against Virginia.
- Two, the team — namely the defense — has improved but still hasn’t figured out how to win games.
- Defensive analyst Jim Leavitt will be more involved this week against Louisville.
- And D.J. Matthews is back at practice.
In the post-game Taggart also spoke about selfish penalties and how the punishment the coaching staff is giving out isn’t doing enough to deter the penalties. FSU has drawn numerous personal foul penalties so far this season.
Quarterback James Blackman struggled against a solid Virginia Cavalier defense last Saturday, and our own Dak Moyer has the graphics to prove it.
Defensive tackle Marvin Wilson will soon enter our Noles News Alumni section if he keeps playing like this:
PFF also named Wilson, along with fellow tackle Corey Durden and defensive back Levonta Taylor to their Week 3 ACC Team of the Week:
A little early scouting on Louisville and their quarterback situation:
Louisville QB Jawon Pass did not play (foot). Not great thrower so if he can't run that is an issue. LOU dominated game much more than score indicated w/ 50% more YPP v. WKU.— Bud Elliott (@BudElliott3) September 16, 2019
Scott Satterfield said that Jawon Pass is better today. Pass probably won’t practice Tuesday, but the team will evaluate from there.— Cameron Teague (@cj_teague) September 16, 2019

Brian Burns got his first NFL sack, and it was a case of ’Nole on ’Nole crime as it came at the expense of Bucs quarterback Jameis Winston. We also got NFL updates on other FSU alum like Dalvin Cook, Jalen Ramsey, Eddie Goldman, and many, many more.
Speaking of Ramsey, the superstar cornerback wants out of Jacksonville following a confrontation with head coach Doug Marrone.

The Jaguars have spoken with interested teams, but there is no current plan to trade Ramsey.
