    So here's a question for you.....in the last 2 signing classes how many Florida kids signed with FSU that you thought we should have signed/wanted?
    IMO Demorie Tate may be the only one....out of 2 entire classes. That's a massive gap.
    In my book there were probably 3 guys in the class before that (Dent, Lucas, Fuller)....but still weak.
    So do you still feel we didn't dominate Fl recruiting among the Florida schools? Canes are always going to land a share of So Fl kids, that's just a given. But we got our fair share from down there too.

    I would have taken the UGA transfer Jones at UF if that counts as another player that would be nice to have from the FSU roster

    The meme I saw said:

    It's Norvell, that's with two "L"'s and zero "W"'s

    Here is to toasting Norvelll after FsU gets taken to the Forest for a Rude A-Wake-ning. Unless, of course, the entire team comes down with a Covid - Lyme Disease combination illness. "Look at them--they're too lethargic from the Lyme Disease to have enough energy to cough or have any symptoms at all! We can't possibly play this game! I don't think we can recover until maybe the Massachusetts game. Is it too late to change the schedule?"

    Might’ve been a spare.

    “Per PFF, Lucas was on the field for 49 of 79 snaps against Jacksonville State, but had the lowest grade of the offensive linemen.”

    Isn't it the truth. In 2013 when the Domers were playing the gumps for the title the media was all lathered up. A buddy of mine, Irish cop and nice guy, was asking what I thought. I said "you don't want to know" but he persevered. I said you guys are going to get run out of the stadium - you have nowhere near the talent.

    He actually learned, but the media just primes the same damn pump every year on ND despite them beating mighty FSU and squeaking by Toledo. They will beat a service academy and whether they get to the playoff will be decided by whether they win/lose versus some Big 10/Pac 12 team. The main hope is if UF makes it to the playoffs, their opponent is ND.

    Pretty much what ya see in Guy's post on the previous page:

    Another issue is that when a team loses to a team like Jacksonville State, it REALLY affects a team's psychological mindset and confidence. Things begin to spiral downward on the field AND in the locker room after a loss.
    Let's see how FSU does in the upcoming games against Wake Forest, etc. Should they start to get behind in THAT game, then their mindset really starts to say,
    "Hey, we lost to JSU...looks like we are going to blow it against the Mighty Demon Deacons."
    REMEMBER...the Noles did not lose that game on that final play...they lost that game because of how poorly they played the entire game.
    FSU should have NEVER been in that situation where a Hail Mary pass in the last six seconds defeats them!
    And that wasn't Clemson they were playing, it was JSU...who got stomped the week earlier by UAB.
    That fact reveals a ton of what's wrong with that team.

    FSU is primed for a kill shot at Wake. Lose Saturday and they are 0-3 and I really do think the wheels come off. The first loss was encouraging since it was so much better than expectation. The second was a complete shock. They could still mentally rebound if they convince themselves JSU was a fluke, a let down, a regrettable but correctable mistake in their rebuild. But a third loss in a row to a mid pack ACC team may be enough to convince them they really are as bad as we hope they are. And that's when the locker room comes apart at the seams, players quit believing, and things can snowball out of control. Go Deacs.

    Yea, usually their schedule is tough…if it were the early 1900s. This year even with USC and Stanford being down, they actually play some decent teams in Wisconsin, Cincinnati and VaTech back to back to back.
