Le bon temps roule! That is the bar on Magazine I ended up at for post game drinks. Very appropriate.I was screaming so loud I cannot believe the neighbors didn’t call 911. My poor dog went and hid under the bed.
Had to take two Tylenol PM’s and still couldn’t fall asleep until almost 3AM.
This will play with recruits because one team was excited to be playing and looked like they were having fun out there and the other looked like they were on the verge of a mutiny.And a game like this will play well with potential recruits also. This was a big stepping stone for Norvell and the team. Suddenly, optimism blossoms over FSU football again.
Yeah. The non-FG at the end of the at the end of the half hurt my heart.The team looked great, but norvell still can’t finish a game. Any NFL coach would have called 2 keepers and kicked a FG on 3rd down to ice the win. And not taking the FG at the end of the first half was criminal.
The play call stuff is subjective Monday morning quarterbacking.He’s not wrong about the play call but didn’t need to say it 6-7 times. Sharpe was a great player but damn the guy can run his mouth.
Fitzgerald was the kicker last year and we came into this game with 39 straight red zone conversions.They were both chip shots - if our kicker can’t hit a FG from the 4 yard line the coaching staff has failed their jobs.
Or, Norvell appears to be making a huge difference in the team culture and is doing some great things, and like any coach he’ll occasionally make some questionable calls but on balance we’re glad to have him!There's two ways to look at this game:
1) Norvell made some stupid calls that almost cost us the game.
2) FSU found a way to win despite the stupid calls that almost cost us the game.
