Children, let’s talk about a college football related pet peeve of mine: I hate talking about rivals on an FSU related website. I hate talking about the Florida Gators or the Miami Hurricanes unless the Noles are playing them. Why? Because I don’t feel like wasting my energy thinking about either of them. My fanaticism […]

How awesome was last night? It was more AWESOME than a Thunderstruck / Ghostbusters mashup: It was more AWESOME than an electrified STATUE OF LIBERTY: see more Epic Win FTW It was BETTER THAN MOONWALKING: Seriously, the Noles were in control of that game last night. CONTROL. I’d say it felt like the 90s again, […]

As usual, I’m brief with my predictions. This one is slightly longer than my usual, because I’ve watched a good amount of Canes football this season. Saturday is going to be interesting. Here are the main thoughts bubbling around in my head as we approach Saturday night’s big game. Miami Hurricanes I’m not a fan […]

The Pre-Miami Fan Confidence Poll shows that the Noles that are voting believe in Jimbo Fisher and the Noles. Granted, beating down BYU, Wake Forest and Virginia was somewhat expected, but compared to recent history those were games that the Noles would uncharacteristically struggle with. While the Seminoles had problems at times, they course corrected […]

Hi everyone. Once again I thank all of you for your well wishes over the last few days. I’m healing, and I’m due for surgery on Tuesday I think. But, I’m feeling pretty good considering everything. Since I don’t know how long I’ll be laid up post surgery, I wanted to post some thoughts about […]

Anton Azucar, a Miami Hurricanes blogger, has an interesting post up today. He claims that the Miami Hurricanes should break free of the ACC and negotiate their own television contract. At first I laughed. “Stupid, arrogant Cane,” I thought. Then I just sort of smirked, “Typical Miami fan statement.” Then I wrinkled my brow, “Yep, […]

An all new ScalpEm.com Photo Album is up for your viewing pleasure. Check out plenty of pictures from pregame (that were decent, thanks to some light) through the game (where the pictures get really grainy, my apologies). On the bright side, there are plenty of cheerleader photos to brighten your post lost-to-Miami blues!

I have a couple of quick thoughts about the opening games last night before I get to my thoughts about Monday night at Doak Campbell Stadium: N.C. State looked slow and apathetic against South Carolina. Why is it so hard to find a consistent kicker? They do one thing at practice everyday. Why aren’t most […]

Miami fans make me laugh. No, I don’t laugh with them, I laugh AT THEM. Although, I have to admit I love the beginning of a football season, where everyone is undefeated and has pie-in-the sky dreams. Do I think Miami can beat FSU? Sure, it can happen. Do I think it will go down […]

James Esco and Dustin Hopkins are locked in a battle for the place kicking job which will likely last until Labor Day. Hopkins, the stronger leg of the two, is a shoe-in for the kickoff duties, but Esco continues to push Hopkins for the extra point and field goal duties with his consistency in practices […]
