    SWAC recruiting has been fine. Check their rankings.

    Interesting that Tampa Sports Jock JP Peterson tweeted last night that Jeffbo has not been actively recruiting FOR THE PAST MONTH!

    He comes with a lot of glowing hype, despite reality.

    I don't by the divorce- uncomfortable theories. They were separated for years, seriously separated. I would be shocked if Jimbo wasn't having affairs. Might have been the initial reasons, who knows. Hard to have a special needs child for both parents, but especially the designated caretaker and Fisher would have been married to Winston and his various activities, and getting to the championship. He had the courts and publicity behind him in Tally, and his side totally ran and controlled the community and national perception. I seriously doubt he is humiliated or wounded He just wanted to look upstanding and coming out smelling like a rose for public perception.

    Either way, I'm OK with it He flounders, or he annoys Saban, and he leaves FSU. Sounds fine to me.

    Three of the four also have something else in common, being terrible QB's (Jameis isn't terrible, but definitely vastly overrated) in the NFL that could never win a big game in college (Jameis is also the exception there).

    Don't forget that with that comes vastly upgraded competition in his own division.

    Even listing Ray Woody in the same sentence with those other guys is laughable!! I pray if WT gets the FSU job he brings Woody with him. I have very close ties to some HS coaches in his stomping grounds who have had direct experience with him, believe me, that's where I get this perspective from. They don't think a hell of a lot more of WT as a HC either.

    He already plays Clemson every year, with The U, Florida and Notre Dame rotating on and off the schedule.

    ACC isn't the cupcake conference it used to be.

    Is he trying to get fired? There's no way FSU could possibly stroke that check. Fisher is becoming one of my favorite dudes.....if I didn't loathe the prick already.

    As with any divorce there is more to it than just one incident.

    It's not a matter of being uncomfortable as much as it is a fresh new start. Out of sight, out of mind type deal. Let's put it this way his ex wife isn't making things easier for him in Tallahassee.

    Alabama, Auburn, LSU (who they haven't beaten in forever), AND ironically they start a H&H with Clemson next year. Their schedule will be an enormous upgrade, especially considering how bad UF and Miami (until this season) have been in his tenure at FSU.

    He's probably leaving FSU because he is as sick as we are of hearing that incessant "war chant" during the entire game.
