2017 Fall Camp Week 3 Review

In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc. & Nolebra Kai recap the 3rd week of FSU’s 2017 fall camp.

Backup center Baveon Johnson will miss the 2017 season with a torn meniscus. With his injury, Alec Eberle’s health and improved play become even more important if FSU is to compete for a National Title this season.

Keith Gavin continues to receive high praise from Jimbo Fisher. Despite not recording a single catch as a freshman, we wouldn’t be surprised if he is FSU’s leading receiver this season.

Deondre Francois was kicked out of practice by Jimbo Fisher this week. He now joins Jameis Winston, Rashad Greene, Lamarcus Joyner and many other great players that have been kicked out of practice for one reason or another.

2017 Fall Camp Preview

In this episode of The Renegade Report, Herc. & Nolebra Kai preview the start of FSU’s 2017 fall camp.

The Seminoles enter the 2017 season with high expectations. Most project FSU to be a top 5 team in the initial rankings and a September 2nd date with Alabama is the talk of college football.

If the Noles are to live up to the hype this season, there are some key questions that need to be answered in fall camp.

The most important question that needs to be answered is who will be the starting offensive line and how much have they improved. Deondre Francois took a beating last season and without a quality backup, his health is the key to this team reaching their full potential.

Defensively, the 2017 Seminoles are loaded with talent, depth and experience at every level. The question is what role with everyone play and are they ready to deal with no huddle – hurry up offenses?

FSU was routinely on the losing end of the special teams, hidden yardage stats in 2016. Improvement in that area should be another focus of fall camp.

What FSU Must Do To Upset Clemson

In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc & Nolebra Kai preview Saturday’s showdown against Clemson.

It was supposed to be the ACC game of the year and a potential top 5 showdown under the lights at Doak Campbell stadium. Instead, FSU enters the game with 2 losses and a defense that has struggled with every mobile quarterback they’ve faced this season. The secondary has given up way too many big plays whether they’re in man or zone. How will they stop Deshaun Watson and his talented set of receivers?

Jimbo Fisher’s offense has started slow in every D1 game they’ve played this season. Can the offensive line create enough holes for Dalvin cook to run through? Will the offensive line give Deondre Francois enough time work the intermediate and deep passing game? Can the receivers win enough 1-on-1 battles to force the Clemson defense to play honest?

2015 Offensive Line & Defensive Tackle Preview

In this episode of the Renegade Report Herc & Nolebra Kai preview the offensive line and defensive tackle positions for the 2015 season.

Despite losing 4 starters to the NFL, Jimbo Fisher is confident in the 2015 offensive line. Left tackle Roderick Johnson anchors a line that is inexperienced but athletic. Run blocking is the strength of the unit right now but their ability to develop chemistry in pass protection will dictate the overall success of the offense.

The defensive tackle position doesn’t feature a superstar like in year’s past. Despite that, there is plenty of talent and depth at the position. Nile Lawrence-Stample and Derrick Nnadi are the starters going into fall camp. Derrick Mitchell, Keith Bryant, Demarcus Christmas and Arthur Williams will compete for playing time. This six-man rotation that averages 6’2 304lbs should be a problem for the interior of opposing offensive lines.

We also discuss recruiting, Jimbo’s appearance on the ESPN “Carwash” and FSU’s ranking in the Coach’s Poll.

The Summer Of Discontent

In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc and Nolebra Kai recap the Noles tumultuous summer.

After a relatively quiet spring, the FSU Football program once again found themselves in the national headlines after De’Andre Johnson and Dalvin Cook were each charged with misdemeanor battery after altercations with females.  Johnson was immediately suspended and ultimately dismissed from the program after video was released of him punching a female.  There is no video of the Cook incident and the facts of the case have many questioning Willie Meggs’ true motive for charging Dalvin Cook.

Rumors of Jimbo and Candi Fisher’s separation were swirling for weeks before they ultimately released a joint statement on June 19th.

Despite the negative headlines the past few weeks, not all the news surrounding the FSU Football program this summer was negative.

Everett Golson transferring to FSU eased some of the concerns for the season following Sean Maguire’s lackluster spring game.

FSU vs. Alabama in Atlanta for the 2017 Kickoff Classic was confirmed and both fanbases are very excited.
