Thinking about Florida State Teaser

This game will be very similar to the West Virginia game, as both teams have significant flaws and unknowns that I think will be strengths. I think VT's defensive line will give the Seminoles some problems, especially in pass protection. Florida State's running backs are really good and they are going to go fast. Tempo tempo tempo even in the spring game. Their offense also has the quarterback running some options. If whoever is responsible for QB on read option can stay with Blackmon, that is a huge advantage.

I have much less of a feel for the FSU defense. They have a defensive tackle (Christmas) who can play. Cornerback looks like it could be a big problem for them.

More coming closer to game time, but now that my dad's recovery is finally gathering some steam, the eyes are moving to the tape.

Is it football season yet?

Love me some Carl

Do you mean that they're thin/inexperienced at cornerback? I thought Levonta Taylor was considered one of the best corners in the conference

I'm pretty sure that's not a real person. As in he definitely doesn't exist.

Sometimes I like to leave off the /s just to mess with people.

He is good. Depth is the issue. Their third corner is, how can I say this nicely, the drizzling shits.

Could not help but LOL at this.

Ditto.

Sooooo, Kumah and Savoy on the outside, then have Hazelton or Denmark out there to burn "the drizzling shits"

Looks like Roc Charmichael, plays like scout team at Pitt.

At least the WVU game was played in a somewhat familiar venue. When is the last time we played at Doak Walker? I believe the home field advantage (heat, loudness) will be hard to overcome. We need this win badly.

VT's offense should be better. Defense will probably be worse. FSU's defense will be better. If VT can contain the run, I don't think FSU's passing game is anywhere near as good.

Blackmon's passing game certainly does not strike fear into my heart. I expect quite a few opportunities to make a play in the ball when he does pass.

2008. High five to anyone that can name the quarterback that had to finish that game for us.

I ran into and hung out with Mr. Holt this past weekend in Orlando. He's a great guy and he's a HR guy at a hospital now. Very fun hanging with him for a few hours!

I can't remember a year when I knew less about what to expect from our team. I feel like our team speed is good but who's going to step up? In FuMan and Bud, we trust! The staff will coach 'em up, I hope.

My Hokie fandom began in 2001, so I can only consider roster replacements since then. I remember loosing an incredible amount of production at WR, RB, and LB in 2008. Does anybody else consider the overhaul this season to what VT had to replace a decade ago? 2008's squad went on to post a 10-4 record and win both the Conference title and Orange Bowl. That being said, I think the ACC was considerably weaker 10 years ago but that's beside my point.

Maybe 1995.

Glad to hear your dad is getting better.

Thank you. Since about April 14, Case de French has basically looked like a Bronco Mendenhall offensive gameplan.

Is Blackman definitely going to be the starter?

Yes, I believe both Blackmon and Francois are both blackmen.

LMFAO Jesus

They might need to put this play in the playbook to slow them down

What is even happening here? Obviously not trying to take a dive to get some sort of call. Some sort of leg cramp?

You can see #90 trying to run off so I'd be willing to bet they had too many men on the field. Fell down to try and distract/ avoid a flag

Not sure what to think there. Winston has been in trouble before but has a another person saying there were three people in the car and Darby and Winston were in the back seat. The third person has been identified as Banks who is currently in jail for a similar situation.

What the initial news people miss is that there were 2 trips that night.
The first had 3 people going to the club, this the driver reports as true. The second trip allegedly had Winston drunk as the lone passenger.
