    I would expect at least Levitt and Woodie. Woodie is the one person that has been with Taggart since the WKU days and is seen as a top recruiter. Levitt is an excellent D-coordinator. Not sure what will happen with Cristobal, would love to have him as he is not only an OC, but also an o-line coach.

    As did I...Leavitt took a colorado defense that was ranked in the 100s to 12th in the country in 2 years. At ORegon he took a 119th ranked defense to 58th. I doubt either of those schools have near the raw talent that the Noles have. Even losing some top guys in James, Sweat, and McFadden...there are always guy waiting to take over.

    Thank you. Very excited...Jimbo is a great coach, but the team felt stale after he won the national title. I almost feel like this is a change the program needed.

    When I was in the 9th grade Willie was a senior...we worked in the office as aides together. This was in the old days where you had to collect teacher's attendance for the front office to scan into the system. When he went on his recruiting trip to WKU he brought me back a signed Harbaugh football card (I still have the card and I cannot remember if I gave him the card or just brought it back for me). From what I have been told is that papa Harbaugh loved Taggart and saw him as another son.

    You may see some future scheduling between the programs...could be fun on an every other year basis.

    We need that right now...I hope he can salvage this class. A big issue is there are reports that Jimbo didn't recruit the last month he was with the program putting us behind. Him leaving hit us hard as well. If Taggart can manage to get this turned around for a top 15 class (I think we are 40 something right now) I would see it as a huge win at least for this year. I expect to be back in the top consistently next year and going forward.

    It is going to be fun and somewhat stressful watching him and Richt battle it out for in-state players. Looking forward to the ACC title coming back to the state of Florida.

    The Noles are bringing in Ray Woodie. I know Ray pretty well, I coached for him for a time. A really great guy that when you meet him you can easily tell why he is such a good recruiter.

    I just don't think Jimbo had I his heart in it this year. FSU just seemed way better prepared the past two games. Granted, the team's they played weren't great but they dominated as they should have but hadn't all year long.

    Yes, I mean we have played poor teams this year and have done nothing against them...Jimbo just seemed like he has wanted out after winning the national title and was just waiting for the right program (amount of money) to come along.

    I think you are 100% right. We haven't played sharp football since the NC game. We really weren't even sharp there. Good riddance, it's Taggart Time!

    FSU's staff has gone through a very nice overhaul...adding a top D coordinator as well as addressing overall team strength (new Strength and conditioning) and adding an o-line coach. All areas of concern last season that we hope to improve this season.

    Good Lord, that is such the truth! Kelly seems like a really nice guy but he is a terrible defensive coordinator.

    With Primetime out of the picture, who are they going to get to coach defensive backs?

    The DC is coaching the DBs as well, although I won't be surprised if he gets an assistant to help with that.

    A little info on the DC....he had 6 sophomores and a true freshman starting on his defense last year and had the 7th ranked defense.

    Yes, The team and fanbased are energized for the first time since the National Title run.

    Also, he has managed to help with a dismal recruiting start under Jimbo taking us from 47th to 26th. I count that as a small victory and hope that by Feb 7th we are back in the top 20 looking to be back in the top 10 next year.

    We are now 15th and 16th in class rankings...I expects some movement as signing day approaches, but a hell of a job salvaging this class that was left for dead when Jimbo "if I get lucky, maybe I will be runner-up in the east" Fisher decided that his energy would be better spent not prepping for games or recruiting...

    10th in Rivals...11th in 24/7. Nice finish and job well done in a transition year...attacked WR and DB hard after losing a good number of those players.

    Willing Taggart is still recruiting hard and landing guys...

    1st was 4 star QB - Sam Howell who reminds many of Baker Mayfield (in play style and not just looks)



    Next, we get a commit from 4 star OG Dontae Lucas...that right a 4 Star offensive lineman...thank god Willie values having a good line.



    Finally, we land 4 star OLB Jaleel McRea

    I am so frigging excited that Willie is our coach and Fisher is gone. Despite winning, I just never liked Fisher. I love Willie and his attitude and accountability. The kids seem to love him too and the cohesiveness of the team is better than I've seen it in years. I can't wait to see this team play the wood on the field. Go Noles!

    Coach Willy has done a good job righting the ship for you guys. Dontae Lucas will play guard in the NFL and was somebody we were after.

    If UF can get their crap together, it will be a heck of a lot of fun to watch dominant Florida football again.
