Seminole Fans Continue Jimbo Fisher Lovefest
Posted by William Kristoph
Maybe Seminole fans should start dishing out cheesy pickup lines to Jimbo Fisher? Something along the lines of “You must call me Streetcar because of my desire for you,” would be just classy enough to impress him, and maybe make him crack a smile. Don’t like that one? Maybe “I play the field, and I think I scored a touchdown with you,” will win good old Jimbo over? No? When all else fails, just order “A Patty Melt, but hold the Patty and hold the Melt.” That one works at least 0.0002% of the time. Anyway, since it’s apparently obvious to every other Seminole blog, website, newspaper and fan that Jimbo Fisher is a “done deal” (nothing is done until there is an announcement), let’s go over some facts about Jimbo.
Awesome Fact #1 - Jimbo has a great Arena Football League player picture from 1988.
Boring Statistical Fact #2 – His offense was better than FSU’s last season:
Turnovers lost — FSU ranked 89th (26), LSU ranked 29th (19)
Passes intercepted — FSU ranked 73rd (15), LSU ranked 17th (8)
Time of possession — FSU ranked 86th (28:59), LSU ranked 51st (30:01)
Third down efficiency — FSU 94th (33.7%), LSU 8th (49.6)
fourth down efficiency — FSU 73rd (40%), LSU 3rd (75%)
Rushing offense — FSU 103rd (95.83 per game), LSU 37th (159)
Total offense — FSU 73rd, LSU 18th
Is the 18th best offense in the nation worth over $400,000? (Plus nearly $750,000 in buyouts?)
Fact Rumor #3 – He has trouble getting along with his head coaches, which might not be a bad thing when the head coach thinks eBay is the root of all fan evil.
Scary Fact #4 – His offensive coordinator at Samford was none other than, Jeff Bowden.
Serious Fact #5 – If nothing else he’s a fantastic QB coach that gets production out of his players; See Rohan Davey, Matt Mauck, Jamarcus Russell.
Is Jimbo really a good fit for a Florida State program with so many problems? Can he actually satisfy fans that are over on Warchant’s Message Board proclaiming a 12-1 Season next year? Check out Mobius’s take on all of FSU’s options, since his speculation is more fun to read than the rest.
I’m starving for comments (but not much else lately, thanks to the holiday eating schedule), leave me some.
