    I'm starting to think they may not turn the corner this year.

    FSU does not need your pity. They need your help.

    Tide2001 started this same thread about Notre Dame back in 2007. We were getting beat 38-0 by USC.

    Oh the ebbs and flows of sports.

    Yeah someone like Frost at Nebraska I can see improving a lot next year but with Taggart and FSU I see about the same, maybe slight improvement.

    i swear every time they show their coach on the sideline...He always looks confused, i think he's a fraud....FSU is too big time for him.

    Don’t feel sorry for us. We did this to ourselves. Allowed Jimbo to keep his friends on staff for 3 years. Gave Jimbo a contract with an asinine buyout.

    Anyway, we will be winning 10+ games in 2 years so it’s all good. Just gonna take some time to rebuild the culture.

    A CFB staple has died.
    The SEC killas
    The dynasty, the run of SEC Champs, the gator killers, ACC and the 7 dwarves, the 50 year winning and 50 year bowl streaks have passed!
    I’m mid 30s guy and it was the best!
    The run has ended...
    Congrats Notre Dame you bested us by 1 stinking year.
    Go Noles!

    Bowl streak ain’t done yet. We can win both our final two games if we get out of our own way.

    It really does. We needed this cleanse. Trim the fat and get rid of the toxicity that had been allowed to fester. Wish this had happened two years ago.

    Are you hearing some rumors we getting a new coaching staff and Oline next week?

    Where is this magical Burger King you eat at?

    I thought the OL looked a lot better this week. Frey has been doing work. Plenty of clean pockets and some actual holes to run through.

    I like Frey but still lost by 30 points to a back up QB and failed to cover the 3rd largest underdog line in modern program history for the 3rd time (all this year)

    Oh, I agree. They’ve actually improved some, but they are still not at the level we need them to be.

    I just keep going back to why my dad said CWT needs to be fired. Losing in your first year is fine, but you cannot trot out there and get yourself completely embarrassed week in and week out. I know we won’t/can’t can him, but I’m definitely starting to agree with his logic.

    Eh. We’ve played a hell of a schedule the last few weeks. What difference does 42-13 or 34-20 make?

    Quite a bit, IMO. And I’m not just talking about tonight. Getting destroyed by NCST, record setting loss to Clemson, Syracuse beating us like a rented mule. It all starts to add up for me.

    Hell, I was there 06-10 and even those teams didn’t look this incompetent and look at how trash that talent/coaching staff was. Do you think we look better or worse than 06? I think we look much much worse in all facets of the game including coaching.

    I’d say we look about the same as 06-07.

    Agree to disagree, then. We didn’t get smashed this badly that year, and we basically fired half our coaching staff after that year. I will be expecting the same from Willie this year.

    Also, objectively, this team has A LOT more talent than that 06 team did.

    We didn’t play near as good teams in 2006, aside from UF. The acc was much worse.

    As for talent, it’s extremely overrated this year. And that 2006 team had plenty.

    Gano, Timmons, Geno Hayes, Buster Davis, Tony Carter, Letroy Guion, Andre Fluellen, Patrick Robinson, Dakota Watson—all nfl players from the D/ST.

    Lorenzo Booker, Antone Smith, Mario Henderson, Dcody Fagg, Preston Parker.

    Willie is going to have to trim some of his own fat this offseason also though on the roster and coaching staff.

    I have watched my team play in 6 winner-take- all national title games (3 in person). I have lived through many big bowl games and top 10 finishes. If I die tomorrow I will pass having seen my favorite college football team have more success than 95% of the fan bases in this country.

    Don't cry for me Argentina.

    They can still beat Florida and get to a bowl. I wouldn't count them out of that game yet.

    They could start Ruth Bader Ginsburg and our defense would make her look like Tom Brady.

    I’ve been saying this all year. Why did we have barely any attrition this off season?

    When new coaches take over you usually see up to 20 kids leaving the program. We lost what 1-2 (not counting kids who got kicked out of school)?

    CWT just doesn’t seem to have/demand the discipline you need to run a successful top tier program. As always, hope I’m wrong!
