In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc & Nolebra Kai discuss the Noles’ 24-7 loss to Alabama.
Eleven points in 13 seconds due to unacceptable special teams play put a hard fought, winnable game out of reach. To literally add injury to insult, Deondre Francois suffered a season ending knee injury. Now FSU must turn to true freshman James Blackman to lead the offense going forward.

A season’s worth of special team blunders were committed in this game including a blocked field goal, blocked punt, fumbled kickoff return and several short punts. This continues a pattern of special teams regression that started in 2014. Should Jay Graham be relieved of his special team coordinator duties?
