Our Bud Elliott and Ingram Smith are back at it to get you prepped, like nobody else can, for this weekend’s Florida State football game. The Seminoles will host North Carolina State, a team that has been a consistent pest to the ’Noles for quite some time. But the duo discuss how the Wolfpack may look less prepared to handle FSU this time around, after trouncing Florida State 47-28 last year.

One big reason for that is the departure of NCSU quarterback Ryan Finley, who was not only accurate and efficient, but also quite creative. As a result, the ’Pack is very low in explosiveness, which is just where the Seminoles should be mounting their defensive challenge.

Of course, the ’Noles have their own questions at QB, after starter James Blackman was injured in the Seminoles’ win over Louisville last weekend. Expecting Alex Hornibrook to start at QB because of Blackman’s injury, the guys breakdown a largely favorable matchup for the FSU offense.

Bud and Ingram touch on these topics and many more, and you can listen by clicking below.
