..are people actually asking why FSU supposedly so much more talent than UF? Was anyone on this site a gator fan back in 2010-2011, when Urban Meyer finished his 18 month identity crisis with a 2010 no-show capped off with the resignation that surprised no one? FSU is now reaping the benefit of Meyer's flameout followed by the transition to Muschamp. Other than Winston, almost all of its top performers in today's game FSU signed during Meyer's "I resign, no I'm back, no I resign again" fiasco in 2009-2011. Kelvin Benjamin was a UF fan in HS, but he signed with FSU due in part to Meyer's 2010 no-show and the uncertainty at UF. Who was FSU's leading rusher today? Wilder, he was actually a UF verbal commit who decommitted during the Meyer flameout. Rashad Greene, Nic O'Leary, more 2011 signees. Who were FSU's leading defenders? Christian Jones, LaMarucs Joyner, Timmy Jernigan, again all FSU signess in 2011 after Meyer's year long resignation. Joyner was a UF commit and Jernigan a heavy UF lean before UF's ridiculous 2 year transition to Muschamp. The players who were signed during that period are now 4th and 5th year players, and FSU is benefitting. We expect DeMarcus Robinson and Kelvin Taylor to man up in their first years, but look at Wilder and Benjamin. They did close to squat their first couple years, but now in their 4th years they perform. Same with Devonta Freeman, O 'Leary, Rashad Greene, surprise, surprise they get the job done as 4th years. Compare that to Muschamp's 5th and 4th year skill players (when they weren't injured) most of them are spread-type players (Driskel, Murphy, Burton, Patton, DeBose). As proud of those players as I am, I have to cut Muschamp some slack b/c his experienced players aren't ideal for his system, and the players who fit his system are still very young. FSU took major advantage when UF got hit with probation in the early 80's, their recruiting while UF was down drove FSU to its late 80's/early 90's dominance, now FSU is reaping the benefits of UF's mini-recruiting slump in 2010-2012. I guess I'm old enough to have seen these cycles wax and wane, the seeds of today's disappointing loss to FSU were sown 4 and 5 years ago.
