This week’s Fan Confidence Poll remains steady with another score of 91. Raw data at first indicated a slight bump in score, but after the ScalpEm.com Super Computer crunched the numbers overnight, 91 is where Jimbotron remains. After 1/3 of the season, the Noles are 3-1. There shouldn’t be much complaining. The defense looks good. […]

I’ve been talking and tweeting about the ticket situation since Samford. The ire of reporters, bloggers and fans is spreading. The Orlando Sentinel’s Andrew Carter blogged: So what’s the excuse now? I figured there’d be a lot of empty seats for the BYU game. It came after that drubbing at Oklahoma, after all, and that […]

Last Saturday, I witnessed the worst FSU crowd since I’ve been going to games (1997). It turns out that it was the worst attended game since before Doak Campbell Stadium was expanded during the 90s. I felt some empathy for the players, cheerleaders and Marching Chiefs. I’m sure most of them grew up watching Doak […]

1. No offense Dustin, but I was kind of hoping that you would miss that last PAT. Just something about 30-0 (THIS TIME) would have had a very pleasant ring to it. But I’ll take 31-0. 2. Coming into the game head coach Jim Grobe said that after giving up 116 points in the past […]

Whoa whoa whoa, back up. Is that the Wake Forest mascot and Mr. Peanut stunt double the Demon Deacon on a Planter’s Cheez Balls container? Or is that actually Mr. Peanut? It’s hard to tell. For FSU fans, here’s a quick primer before I get to my prediction for the game. Ways to tell Mr. […]

Something that I constantly have on my mind regarding FSU football is the play of special teams. Over the years, FSU had plenty of great kickers although not always clutch ones. Big legs that were generally accurate. Each time when I think I’ve seen the best (Janikowski) another rolls along that does one or two […]

Evidently a victory rights most of the wrongs of the world. The Fan Confidence Meter rises above the OU beat down thanks to a solid victory over the BYU Cougars. What we see here is how up and down the Florida State fan base acts. It’s all about wins for Seminoles. Wins fix big losses […]

Regarding the actual game, I couldn’t help but feel out of sorts after FSU’s solid victory over the BYU Cougars. Sure, there were some great plays and definite highlights. But the theme of the day for me, sitting in the stands without any analysis, was inconsistency. It didn’t seem like everything totally clicked. The second […]
