this is very simple...FSU has played a tough conference opponent the first game of the year for the past 4 years..looking at UF's schedule...their first 2 games the last 4 seasons have been at home against lesser teams. I don't have a problem with that...Ive had a bigger problem with FSU playing such a big game so early! it didn't help our team even if we won...the offense was terrible in every game and the defense got banged up, so nothing really good came from playing Clemson or Miami. UF goes out and whoops up on UCF, and Southern Miss and gains confidence and if they play Tenn. at home, they have all the fans ready to go and the stadium is hyped up...if its on the road, they already have confidence from beating a decent team and they are ready to play. Its about time FSU did something smart!! its not like we are going to be 10-1 looking for our SOS to get into the nat'l championship game...we will be lucky if we are in the conference championship!!

Being a former fsu graduate i was always proud of what bobby bowden brought to fsu , however it now seems his concern is his race with paterno for wins. The discipline within the football program is probably a joke across the country and his down home good ole boy stuff has worn out.The problem for the administration is - how do you get rid of a legend when his time has come and now gone? There has to be a split within the big money fsu football supporters. Are they wondering what will be the next surprise in the football program ?

It's not that FSU is playing two creampuffs the first two games of the season. We recognize that UF does this every year. It's that FSU/Bobby Bowden deliberately adjusted their schedule to put the two creampuffs at the top to minimize the damage. Two TOTALLY DIFFERENT things. If Meyer did this I would be outraged. I may or may not use internet message boards to voice my displeasure where FSU fans could just grab hold but if I did use internet message boards it certainly wouldn't be to DEFEND Meyer.

Who was orignally scheduled in the first games? Nothing was said of FSU playing another monday night game. Its not like we called 2 better teams and said, sorry, you are too good play us in the first 2 games, we need a weaker team so we can actually win. There was no contract with Miami or Clemson to play a season opener. Or anyone for that matter, yes 2 1-AA teams in a row is a little ridiculous at least a FBS team is better competetion for the players to see. not the greatest move, but in these dire times for bobby, he'll do anything to get a win....ready for the next guy to see if he can do any better.

So then you're telling us this would have been FSU's schedule regardless?

no one knows what the schedule would have been...only those inside the wagons..both clemson and miami games were a home and home and both ran their course. it could have been troy, uab, any FBS team, but in light of all the crap, they made a win even more of a guarantee. we knew when miami and clemson were the openers b/c espn and everyone makes a big deal promoting it. but this year nothing was on the table, and once we got hit with the suspensions, we didn't want to play the game, even though it didn't help us anyway. so nobody really knew what the schedule was going to be except the big shots.

"As former FSU Graduate", then what are you now? Shouldn't that be: "As an FSU Graduate?" You guys kill me - no wonder UF grads eat our lunch on these forums - half of the "former FSU Grads" as they claim, are probably sitting in the TCC library skipping english lit, a class that it appears you really should be in - it's embarassing...freaking embarassing!
