Running off at the typewriter. . . . Stop it. Stop it. Stop it. All you Florida State fans sending e-mails because I panned your offense in Week 1 of the Jimbo Fisher era just stop it.

Wonderful to bask in the sunshine of respect as THE University of Florida, instead of shareing with the U of South Alabama ( F S shU) nd the University of North Cuba ( UM)...you can talk about your cycles but for now I'm lovin it!!

You remind me of a cornered rat. Enjoy your last week of gator homer yuk yuk about the Seminoles. Watch what happens to UAB and be glad it is not your reptiles (for now).

From your article it was hard to tell if even knew that Jeffy the idiot boy does not work at FSU anymore.

You and the other homer Mike Thomas are the reasons I dropped my Sentinel subscrition. Why pay money ruthless antagonists who manipulate the truth.

Some things to clear up. There is an old saying that if you shovel enough manure against the wall some of it is bound to stick. We come close here at times of disproving this. For those here wishing to increase your football knowledge please pay attention as we cannot continue to keep repeating ourselves. We think our offensive line will retain knowledge much faster than the majority of posters with less than ten posts. Some of you might wish to consider posting on the Twilight zone.com .

Bobby is not too old.
Bobby will not be fired soon.
Bobby has just entered the Hall of Fame and eclipsed Pop Warner & Bear Bryant
FSU is not talent depleted or suffering recruiting failures.
FSU is not finished as a football power.
Jimbo Fisher is not overrated.
Drew Weatherford's scholarship is not going to be pulled at this point.
X Lee is not held back by a conspiracy to keep him down.
We feel FSU will get better each game and not morph into Slippery Rock
We do not share the views of ESPN nor CBS sports.
Don't bother with polls as we do not adhere to them.
Florida State cheerleaders are not ugly.

All of your concerns about coaching and quarterback changes cannot be addressed here. You must contact the University and ask for P.K. Wetherell or the Athletic Dept and ask to speak to this man. All of your concerns will immediately be addressed in an efficient manner.


As far as concerns about the offensive line and talent level coach Trickett has indicated that he has more talent at FSU than he had at WVU. Coach Trickett has never failed before. Do feel that he is lying, suddenly become incompetent or trying to buy time? We ask you to bear with us and give the new coaches more than one game.

Rick Trickett:
“As bad as we played, now you're sitting there at three minutes, the ball on the 30-yard line with a chance to win the ball game. We showed them on film today that there are six plays that if somebody does the right assignment ... we've got five or six touchdowns that we let slide right out the door.”

To the novice it may appear that Drew Weatherford holds the ball too long. This is due to an oline in progress and receivers being covered. No he will not be instructed to throw it up like a hot potato when no receivers are open to simply assuage the feelings of football fans. All efforts are being made by handlers to instruct Drew to throw the ball away in these situations when a possibility exists without drawing the intentional grounding penalty.

This should address the concerns of even the most diehard trolling drama queens who represent various other football programs, would have up to this point. Thank you for your indulgence.

I see you cut you email off also homer

It was an angry sea that night.........never attempt to reason with recalcitrant enemies, simply treat them as objects of scorn and ridicule.

Mike, you're absolutely right: Jeff Bowden DID manage to lower expectations! Mind you, he had 6 long years to accomplish that task during which FSU's offensive production looked more like the chart of a crashing stock market. Jimbo Fisher cannot undo this in one game or two (as evidenced by the UAB game, in progress as I write this.) This is a multi-year process to try to get back to the elite ranks of college football. All that we true FSU fans can do is continue showing our support for the Noles and hope we still have some recruiting clout to keep good talent from going to UF or leaving the state altogether.

The University of South Florida beat Auburn last weekend. Florida Gators were not able to do it last year. What gives?

Mike, I think that they're still just upset about the "Jeffbo" comment.

That was last year buddy... A Memory. If USF beat Auburn last year then talk to me.

Heck, if we can't beat Auburn this year, then talk to me... Last year is the past. As in FSU used to be "good" in the 90's.
