The autopsy of the Boise State game continues for both the team and the fans, as the ’Noles look for answers in improving their defense:

But cleaning up some execution issues could help their offense as well:

Willie Taggart addressed some of those issues in his press conference yesterday. He notably described the defense as “passive” several times, especially on third downs, and stated he felt that being more aggressive and bringing pressure could have made a difference. With that said, the scheme itself wasn’t the issue. Taggart also spoke about the defense losing receivers in coverage. However, it wasn’t all bad. Taggart also praised young players like Renardo Green and Amari Gainer.

On the offensive side of the ball, Taggart announced that the injury to Brady Scott wasn’t serious. But he also addressed the offense’s second-half woes, putting most of the blame on a failure to execute rather than anything Boise State did.

There was also a bit of a fervor regarding a hydration issue.

Freshman Travis Jay is ineligible but it has nothing to do with injury.


FSU has offered four-star 2021 running back Lovasea Carroll. Carroll is originally from Georgia and has recently de-committed from South Carolina. He currently attends nearby IMG Academy.

Our High School Roundup has another excellent addition. FSU commits and targets Jeff Sims, Malachi Wideman, Morven Joseph, and Jayion McCluster are featured.
