Maybe it just me. FSU still had a chance to win the game. Jimbo, why did you play Ponder all game without making a change. I think Ponder is starting to believe the hype. He's a developing QB, but he's still learning and has a ways to go. Having said that, perhaps you need to play Richardson some more to change up what defenses are doing against FSU. Richardson seems to play pretty well when he gets an opportunity. He runs just as well as ponder (if not better) and he can pass the ball too (remember that beautiful pass to Preston Parker! I just think when Ponder gets in a funk, you should sit him down a few series and see what Richardson can do. I wouldn't have hurt and it gives the starting QB a chance to see what happening on the field. I'm not saying Ponder was the only reason FSU lost, but he was clearly off his game and I think Richardson is a capable enough back-up to put him in the game and try to see if he could jump start the offense. I hope you give him an opportunity, when and if Ponder falters, next time.
