You are the one who has no idea what he is talking about. IF he had signed with UF instead of ClownTown U he most definitely would have two BCS Championship rings, one from 2006 and one from 2008...no ifs, ans or buts.
My point is he would have flopped, regardless. Emmanuel Moody has been a bust. He is just a bust with a championship.

He should have listened to his Momma. She didn't want him to go to Tallahassee in the first place.

An NFL-caliber back can manage SOME level of productivity, regardless of the O-line or coaching.

Antone...the Pahokee McDonald's is calling your name!

This is pretty funny!

After many years of being door mats, now every gaytor fan is suddenly a football expert. Oh yes, the only gaytor that anyone ever remembers is.......... Emmitt Smith! Emmitt is such a great guy you'd really actually think he wasn't a gaytor.

Antone, remember the first time you didn't listen to your Momma? Look what happened and where you ended up.

Antone needs to reexamine his own mindset and stop blaming everyone else for his lack of production. FSU fans have been plenty irritated by his failures the past couple years. Why is it that Smith averaged 4.47yds/play last year, whereas his replacement Jermaine Thomas (as a freshman) averaged 6.99yds/play? What about this last season? Did Rodney Hudson not perform well enough for Antone? Give me a break!

YOu do have to admit that Lorenzo Booker and Leon Washington from FSU never did anything in Tallahasse, but they both have been in the pro's for a couple of years....

Hey, if you want a Nat Champ ring to define your past and the rest of your life, go to Florida, but if you want playing time and experience to prepare for the pros, and make a couple of $mill a year, come to FSU......

He should be thankful he had an opportunity to get out of Pahokee and get a free education. Plenty of others would beg for that chance. I'm curious how close he is to obtaining his degree???
And why would you want to know that you are just rude....i am pretty sure he is thankful the boy is just speaking real talk the o-line sucked they were young...they will get better and are getting better....but it wasnt in the right time for antone's career at fsu...

The Oline stank for Booker and Washington as well, and both of them are in the pro's and didn't make disparaging comments towards FSU. He should have protected his own(FSU) and moved forward. He still got more playing time and experience than he would have had at UF, so he should be thankful for that, and we all wish it would have worked out differently and better for all us FSU fans

All u haters must not know who Antone Smith is ive seen him play hes a great RB in high school he ran all over the best teams in florida, but it didnt stop there he went to cali. and ran all over the best cali. had to offer in the califlorida bowl so dont tell me hes no good or only has this but not that. The real if is, if he had a good coaching staff cali. and florida put out some of the best talent in the nation if he can handle them he can handle the football for fsu. p.s. fsu's new RB loni prior is ok but no where nere Antone Smith and he gets the ball way more.
