Twenty second ranked Florida State was expected to win big and that’s exactly what the Seminoles did in demolishing Alabama A&M 81-34. The Bulldogs (3-5 on the season) never had a chance against the taller, faster, and more athletic ‘Noles. The only moral victory A&M could take away from the game was that they actually […]

This past year was a tough one, both for the Noles and for me personally. This is the first “Bowl Season” I can remember in a long time that I haven’t paid a lot of attention to the games. I’ve checked the scores, checked my Yahoo! pool with the boys from Block-C.com, but overall I […]

It’s the end of one craptacular year, 2009. I cannot form coherent long thoughts at this point, so you guys are going to get what I call Mind Barf. Enjoy Volume 1. Twitter – I reluctantly started a Twitter account for ScalpEm.com this year. I must say that it’s paid off much more than I […]

Merry Christmas everyone! May the holidays be beautiful, fun and happy for you! From the Griswolds ScalpEm.com to you!

When was this one over? At the 18:56 mark of the first half when Solomon Alabi made the first basket of the game for FSU. It was downhill for the Skyhawks after that. Really downhill. Even Leonard Hamilton knew this one was going to be a blowout before the game started. He never had a […]

Florida State was seemingly in control of the game leading Georgia tech 52-45 with 3:58 left in the game.  But the ‘Noles would only score one more basket while Tech chipped away tying the game at 54 with half a minute left. On a play designed for Derwin Kitchen to attack the basket, Tech switched […]

It’s been a recurring theme. Despite nearly blowing a double digit lead, missing four free throws in the final 2:03, and committing 19 turnovers, four in the first ninety seconds of the game, somehow the Florida State Seminoles found a way to win the game again, this time 76-72 over the Auburn Tigers. FSU held […]

Looking ahead to 2010, what is realistic for FSU Football? 8 wins? 10 wins? ACC Championship Game? ACC Champions? Is Jimbo Fisher staring down unrealistic and overly excited fans as he heads into his first season as a head coach? Looking at the schedule: Home – Boston College, BYU, Clemson, Florida, North Carolina, Samford, Wake […]

They might as well have just run a replay of last year’s game against Georgia State when the Seminoles lost a 19 point lead only to see Derwin Kitchen convert two free throws in the waning seconds to put the game out of reach and securing a 62-57 win. Fast forward to Tuesday night’s game. […]

Let me preface this article with the fact that I am a huge Jimbo Fisher fan. I enjoy watching the man’s press conferences and I think he connects with a lot of fans in a very different way than Bobby Bowden did. Fisher is the thinking football fan’s coach. He explains a ton of football […]
