    What is going on here? If that is by design what is the purpose of facing backwards? Is this genius play call by Willie supposed to fake out the other team? I don't get it.

    It was weird for sure. He's supposed to line up that way and then when the QB signals motion he ran over to the opposite side and lined up as a tight end

    Apparently it was a trick play...but if I was in the same situation FSU and wt was in the last thing I would worry about is gimmicks and tricks. You cant even do the simple things correctly let alone the complex. Here’s to hoping he wins enough for them to stick with him a few years.

  8. I cannot believe I wasted 30 seconds of my life listening to that surrender song, but at least I know what it sounds like now.

    Trick play or not, if people already question your team's coaching acumen and execution, it certainly doesn't make for a good look.

    We cannot appreciate the genius of Willie!! It looked like they tried to lose to the untrained eye!

    I'm thinking he was lining up to intercept the bubble screen pass and take it to the house

  17. If it will help the Clown School keep WiLLLLLie, maybe I will sing their surrender song with the same amount of zeal!

    Just out of curiosity, If they have a losing season, I wonder how many players will enter the transfer portal.

    If we have true free agency we will see dozens transferring after a crappy season or after a coach leaves, etc, etc. It has to stop.
