    Noles are saying they have this game easy and see a 3-4 TD victory. Depends which team shows up for us and if Miller’s targeting is overturned by the SEC. Would love to pick them off in year 1 of the regime.

    Question, how many times has the league office overturned a targeting call? I can't think of any.

    Gotta run effectively. Stats show when we run against decent teams we get shut down. Gotta eat clock and keep Travis on sidelines.

    Need Pearsall

    Billy has to utilize AR’s legs. QB power, QB draw, Keep on zone read, speed options ( don’t get why we don’t do this 5-6 times a game).

    Toney’s unit has to be great.

    Special teams have to be great.

    Manage clock and don’t chase points.
    Wish Whit wasn’t transferring. Best hands on team. If he is playing I guarantee you we don’t drop six passes yesterday.

    I’d say more importantly which coaching staff shows up gameplan wise. Hope they understand the importance. His pressers concern me.

    Ordinarily I’d say no chance. But look at the Gamecocks.

    I think the biggest difference is that they're in year 3 of their coaching transition and beginning to find their footing. Their roster is not that much better than ours though.

    A good week of practice and more of what we saw against South Carolina could be enough to beat them.

    I think its important to come into Joke and punch them in the mouth early. Set a tone and I think they could fold.

    This team is so inconsistent. We could see a victory by 2-3 scores and crush them on defense. We could also lose by a score. One thing for certain is that this team only ever got blown out by Georgia, and FSU is not Georgia. So my best guess is anywhere between a single score loss to a 30 point win.

    Hell, I'd settle for just being close to competent for a game.

    Sure they're not that good, but neither is UF. We have the talent to beat them, same goes for them, but they're currently playing better and have momentum as well as progress being made. We don't.

    If this was the a blind pickem I'd say it's 50/50 but all the intangibles are currently on their side so we'll see.

    There’s no telling what happens. From one week to the next it’s totally different teams. How much did Tennessee think they would win by yesterday against South Carolina?

    The one thing I’ll say is that FSU plays in a very weak conference, and we play on the SEC. I’m not sure FSU is substantially better than who we play every week. And, we have been in every game we’ve played in. I don’t see this game as a blowout and I definitely think we have “a chance”

    We will beat FSU! They are not good. We are very close to being great, so many close losses!

    look at the talent and coaching staff on that ‘97 team. It’s like comparing a Ferrari to a Firebird.

    1) it’s a new thing where a team can appeal a targeting call to the conference After the game so probably not any instances.

    2) why are you so hell bent on saying it was targeting? I’ve seen you say it at least three times now. We get it. You think he should/will be suspended.

    Before that game, no one gave us a chance. It was one of the biggest upsets in its day. Just pointing out that an underdog wins in this series sometimes.
