Interim head coach Odell Haggins again took the podium yesterday. He talked about the penalties that continue to plague this team, recruiting, and why James Blackman got the start under center. Haggins also spoke about the support he’s received, and Kendal Briles’ decisions, including playing Jordan Travis. Travis’ patience paid off in a big way. Haggins also got emotional when discussing Marvin Wilson. For Odell, it’s all about family.
A pro/con rundown of the main candidates in FSU’s head-coaching search. While that’s serious, it’s still silly season in the national media, especially when it came to fluffing Deion Sanders’ candidacy for the job:
And then other media used it to say the search is a cluster, which is fake news reacting to fake news. https://t.co/Yta3WVFGFz— Bud Elliott (@BudElliott3) November 11, 2019
How much did FSU’s win against Boston College change their SP+ rankings? Bud Elliott also condenses the ’Noles’ game against the Eagles:
FSU 80% YPP edge. BC 14-20 on 3rd downs, but 0-2 on FGS. BC ran 93 plays to FSU's 57, but FSU had 4 TDs on explosive plays & BC did not have a play of 25+. Both head coaches managed game poorly (bad punt/fg decisions) but FSU's interim coach had 3 egregious ones in only 10 drives— Bud Elliott (@BudElliott3) November 11, 2019
Two Seminole players also garnered individual accolades:
Tamorrion Terry’s blocking effort on Saturday is also worth recognizing, especially considering where it was at earlier this season.
Collectively, it was enough to again capture Kirk Herbstreit’s attention:
As long as FSU takes care of business against Alabama State they will be going bowling again. Now that it’s a firmer possibility, it’s time to check out their bowl projections.
The top overall prospect of the 2021 basketball class has FSU in the top ten:
Inside the boxscore of FSU’s double-digit win over the Gators in Men’s basketball. Hopefully this team continues to improve:
FSU ran some really nice old school high-low action vs UF using Osborne and Gray. Will be interesting to see if they build on that as the season progresses— Basketball School (@MichaelRogner) November 11, 2019
The soccer team claimed a coveted No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament for the second straight year.
Dalvin Cook is the best running back in the NFL, and he continued his run of dominance this weekend. Meanwhile, Jameis Winston had a very Winston-like day, and so did Jalen Ramsey. Lamarcus Joyner is also having another good season, and Derwin James should be back in the lineup soon.
