Nolecast: Issues persist after FSU’s close win over Louisiana-Monroe

Discussing a very thin silver lining.

NCAA Football: UL Monroe at Florida State Glenn Beil-USA TODAY Sports

Florida State football won 45-44 in overtime vs. Louisiana Monroe on Saturday night. After last week’s loss to Boise State, fans hoped this game would be a relaxing win. Instead, it turned out to be a back-and-forth nail-biter in the second half.

FSU once again fell off a cliff after halftime, allowing scoring drives on five of ULM’s last six possessions, with a pick-six. In the end, the victory is bittersweet, as it shows a program that has not really improved like it needed to. Ingram Smith recaps the game and provides his thoughts on the team, players, and the coaching staff, bringing up some important questions:

  • Are the coaches holding players accountable?
  • What’s going on with FSU linebacker Dontavious Jackson?
  • Can Florida State salvage this season?
  • Should you lower your win total expectations?

And no, Ingram doesn’t hold back in this week’s instant reaction— Florida State fans may find this rather cathartic. Check it out:
