Nolecast: What we learned from the first week of Florida State fall camp

New, 3 comments

No full pads yet, but plenty of observations.

Bud Elliott and Ingram Smith return with the 36th Nolecast episode of 2018. The Nolecast is the No. 1 Florida State Seminoles podcast.

Listen in the player below this article, or on Apple Podcasts (iTunes), Stitcher, or Google Play Music

Show notes are as follows, roughly in order

  • Players knowing the history and the Bowden documentary
  • Young kids practice
  • New Schemes are tough transitions, even simple ones
  • Truly aggressive
  • No separation at QB, receivers have been out
  • No mystery for Nolecast listeners in how the play calling is going to go.
  • Walt Bell is extremely organized
  • Simplicity of the dropback game, and the play action element on almost every throw except for quick game.
  • The OT situation, the scary depth, and what Bud is not worried about
  • No selective tempo!
  • Harlon Barnett laughing at the idea of them playing Nick Saban style Cover 3 pattern match a majority of the time
  • Barnett saying part of the defense being simple is to let the defense think and anticipate what the offense will do.
  • Stanford Samuels at free safety

There is no buy-or-sell this week, not listener questions. We will take them next week.
