Inside Adam Fuller’s Mind: X’s and Noles takes a deep dive into what kind of playcaller defensive coordinator Fuller is. This is great stuff, and it’s worth your time.

Some more numbers on FSU and its slow march back:
FSU averaged 3.06 yards before contact per rush when running to the left side of the line last year, just a tick behind UNC for best in the ACC.

It’s almost like Dan tried to leave this offseason for a reason
Speaking of being sensitive:
