1. It is very apparent that a trend under the Jimbo Fisher era is developing. Apparently every game played with Jimbo as head coach is going to be a blowout one way or the other. 2. Guessing Part I. Just a guess, but compared to last week I’m guessing tackling the guy with the ball […]

1. 22 of 27 passing combined for the QB’s. 7 of 8 scores in the red zone. No TD’s allowed by the defense for the first time in 15 games. A goal line stand by the defense, and the third string defense at that. Only four penalties none of which included the ever popular holding […]

I’ll keep this brief and to the point. Of Florida State’s nine losses this season, Friday night’s 58-52 loss to North Carolina State is in my opinion the worse loss of the season. Why do I say that? The mistakes made tonight mirror exactly the very same mistakes this team made in the first week […]

After starting several times to write up something about this game the only thing I could finally come up with is that had to be the most embarrassing last 1:24 any Florida State team has ever played.  I have not seen every game obviously. But I’ve seen a good number of them over the years […]

If there was ever a time to beat a Tar Heel team in Chapel Hill that was nowhere near its championship year last season this was the time. Florida State did not waste that opportunity never trailing in the game giving Leonard Hamilton his first win at North Carolina as the Seminole head coach by […]

Leonard Hamilton could afford to be jovial after the game. In jest Hamilton called it a game of 50 referring to the 50% from the floor, 50% from the arc and particularly noting the 50% from the free throw line the ‘Noles shot for the game. Meanwhile Hamilton’s defense throttled the Virginia Cavaliers 69-50 for […]

Defense was the name of the game in the second half for the Seminoles. In what was possibly the best defensive effort in any half this season, Florida State slapped a suffocating defense on Boston College holding the Eagles to a season low 17 points on six baskets over the final twenty minutes in beating […]

There would be no miracle comeback this time for Florida State. Clemson jumped out to a 9-0 lead and despite pulling to within 9-8, the Seminoles could never get over the hump and take the lead at anytime in the game. A flurry of points near the end of the first half culminating in a […]

Leonard Hamilton had a short talk with his two point guards last Wednesday. What he told them was sometimes you need to step out of your comfort zone and be aggressive. Unselfish is not always a good thing and the usually unselfish guards responded. Two days after Derwin Kitchen obliterated his previous career mark, Luke […]

Just when it looked like Florida State would tie Maryland Michael Snaer was called for charging into Dino Gregory with 14.5 seconds left taking away Snaer’s floater in the lane. The foul proved very costly that negated a tremendous hustle play by Chris Singleton to block Adrian Bowie’s breakaway lay up a minute earlier. Time […]
