Show notes are as follows, roughly in order

Here are the things we learned, and what we want to know going forward.

  • What Deondre Francois did well and did not do well.
  • Why the offensive line improved in this game.
  • How to judge running backs behind this offensive line.
  • Some receivers are starting to stand out.


  • How was FSU trying to attack the QB?
  • FSU made a bad offense look bad.
  • Which defensive linemen are standing out.
  • FSU is blitzing a lot, but it’s not get great at blitzing.
  • What to make of the secondary.
