And so much more...

After a quick instant-reaction podcast following the Virginia game, our Bud Elliott and Ingram Smith are back to more thoroughly dissect what did and didn’t work for the Seminoles in Charlottesville. The guys touch on a number of topics, some of which include:

  • Many of our readers complaining about how the offense goes too fast at times, and needs to slow down to give the defense a break— why this approach is flawed thinking and would cause more harm than good
  • FSU’s defense wasn’t asked to do too much against the Cavaliers, by any stretch— its approach is the problem
  • Because of that, it’s still reasonable to call for the entire defensive staff’s dismissal
  • How the announcers were wrong about penalties and clock management
  • Why it’s unrealistic to discuss getting rid of Willie Taggart right now, or in the immediate future, due not only to finances, but the larger big-business issues inherent in college football in this day and age
  • A look at the Florida State defense after the injury to Joshua Kaindoh
