    And you barely beat a under-maned bad team.

    Well, we know that Akers is going to be a damn good one.

    I would be very surprised if Kelley is kept after this season is over. Almost cost us another game.

    The loss to Miami I feel set us up for the other losses, the kids gave up at that point.

    Fourth quarter defense, particularly in the last 5 minutes has destroyed our season. Three of our five losses are directly attributable to last minute defensive collapses. The offense is just severely limited because of injuries, imo, although Jimbo hasn't been great with the play calls at all this year.

    Sorry buddy...you guys have had some bad luck also...but im not supposed to say anything here...the Canes think im just a Bama homer that says
    Bama has no flaws,never loses and will be in the playoffs every year....Wait!!! that's kind of true....and I'm a knucklehead..I haven't been called a knucklehead
    since the third grade..Im amazed its pissing me off this much...What do you think Buddy?
    Am I one of those ******* Bama fans? I try not to be but you never know...I might be to close to the fire to really see.
    Be honest buddy..I value your opinion.

    Truthfully, I've seen a whole lot worse. You love your team but you generally assess Alabama and other college teams pretty objectively. I'll take you over a Tennessee fan any day. There are some absolutely obnoxious Alabama fans but I don't see you as one of them.

    You must not be familiar with the rivalry. It's always close. Just one of those games

    That would have been the other way around as well. A loss like that against a rival kinda sets the tone for the season.

    Every year they tease the "Jimbo has interest from an SEC school" and there are times where I think I would be ok with it. Then I think about UF and their struggle to find a competent coach and I tend to want him to stay. I do hope that he decides to replace the DC and finally give up play calling. There are also times where it feels like he doesn't relate to the player the way he should. Hard to explain, but it is something I noticed last year watch the Showtime special. Going to be an interesting off-season for the Nole, especially looking at the potential to the way they recruit and who is coaching.

    Jimbo watch, day 2....

    I know that Texas A&M could possibly be a better job. More money, better facilities, but I hope that Jimbo knows that if he goes they are going to expect them to be able to compete with Bama in a couple of years. They want him to bring championships to TA&M. How will the fans react when he drops that yearly game to a mediocre opponent? How about when he starts using another program to get a better deal in a couple of years? Honestly, I hate the fact that he does this each year...whether it is to force the hand of the admin for something for this program or a pay raise and longer contract.

    Whatever he decides, I hope he has enough class to do it today instead of stringing it out.

    May be in the minority here, but if Jimbo leaves, I hope they pick the phone up and call Jeremy Pruitt and bring him back to Tallahassee to run the show this time.

    It is amazing how much worse the defense was after he left. If Jimbo says he needs to part ways with Kelly. HE cost us 2 games early this year alone.

    I would eye Taggart as well.

    As much as I love Pruitt, he isn't coming back to Tallahassee. Friends with deep ties at FSU said he was knocking boots with sorority chicks and that's why they let him walk. I don't know that for a fact but that's what I've heard. You all know I hate Kelly as our DC, he's personally cost us 3 games this year (NCST, Louisville, and Miami) and several more over the years. If Jimbo stays, he has got to get a better DC as Kelly isn't qualified to hold Andrews, Stoops, or Pruitt's jockstrap!

    I'd definitely be o.k. with that but he still needs a defensive coordinator. Please don't let him retain Kelly!

    Hell, I'd get him a line of sorority girls if he'd come back! I can't knock his choice of vice, FSU has some truly beautiful women.

    Curious. Why would Fisher want to leave or should leave? A Bowl game every year. 3 ACC Championships and 1 NC in 7 years. Never a losing season and until this year always a winning season. Until this year every year finished in the top 25, 4 times in the top 10. This is his first off year as a Noles HC. Heck look at all the off years the Canes had in that same span. Those off years became a regular occurrence. lol

    I don't think he wants to leave as much as other schools are throwing ridiculous cash at him. For being a powerhouse, apparently FSU doesn't have elite practice facilities and I think that factors in as well. These other schools have massive booster endowments going back generations whereas FSU only goes back to the fifties. From what I understand, he uses the offers as leverage for extensions, getting his assistant raises, and getting the facilities improved.

    Apparently, FSU is starting to do background on Willie Taggart.

    In response, Willie Taggart was offered a raise and new contract.

    If Fisher leaves, let's Bring Willie back to the state of Florida.

    Although not confirmed...Jimbo is expected to take the Texas A&M job. A flight out of Tallahassee on a private jet owned by a TAM regent in scheduled for departure at noon.

    Look for FSU to make a big push to get Willie Taggart to FSU by the end of the weekend. Reports are that Jimbo has done almost no recruiting so landing a top recruiter like Taggart could go a long way to salvage this class which has been hit by a number of de-commits.

    It almost feels like jimbo packed it in this year. I'm not too sad to see him go as long as he takes Kelly with him.

    It does...his heart wasn't in it once Francois went down and there are rumors that his relationship with the QB has soured as well.

    Maybe with Taggart we get Levitt as DC...one can hope.

    If we get Taggart, I definitely hope we get Levitt as well. A strong D.C. would go a long way with this team.

    Jeremy Pruitt and Lane Kiffin would require a line-up.

    I doubt either is on the radar...because of the...rumors.

    Taggart is top Target followed by Justin Fuente and Scott Frost. FSU may be the one place that could keep Frost from wanting to go to Nebraska.

    A couple of solid rumors have Willie Taggart in Tallahassee but the school will wait to announce anything until tonight as to not overshadow Haggins today. Haggins is easily the most respected coach on the staff, is loved by the players and Seminole Nation.

    If this pans out I hope he brings His 3 coordinators. Woodie is not the greatest specials teams coach, but he is an excellent recruiter. Levitt and Cristobal should go a long way to fixing the defense and offensive lines.

    I thought Willie Taggart was the perfect fit for Oregon, but I also think it would be a hell of hire for FSU.

    If they get Willie I think he's a very good hire. I think he brought a much needed culture change to Oregon in one year, but he is a Florida boy
