In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc. & Nolebra Kai recap Friday’s 45-7 victory over Boston College.

The Noles hosted a rare weekday home game in which both the offense and fan base showed up early. Dalvin Cook had a quiet 100 yard rushing game and Auden Tate had his first 100 yard receiving game. Senior night was capped by Sean Maguire coming in to throw 2 TD passes.

The defense dominated a limited Eagles’ offense. The key to their success was holding BC to 96 yards on 35 rushing attempts.

We also pose the question: Is Steve Addazio a suitable replacement for Rick Trickett?

Putting The Clemson Loss In Perspective

In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc & Nolebra Kai recap the Noles 37-34 loss to Clemson.

110116_renegadereport

Dalvin Cook scored 4 touchdowns, Deondre Francois’ toughness was once again on display and Nyqwan Murray had a coming out party but when it mattered most the offensive line cracked under pressure and prevented the offense from scoring a game tying field goal or a game winning touchdown.

Statistically, the defense gave up basically the same number of yards on the same number of plays as the 2015 defense did against Clemson.  However, the 2016 defense gave up 14 more points; including the game winning touchdown with 2 minutes left after the offense scored the go ahead touchdown.

How will this heartbreaking loss affect the team going forward? How healthy will the team be physically?  The bigger question may be, how well will the team bounce back emotionally?

Noles Make It 7 Straight Against Miami

In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc & Nolebra Kai recap the Noles dramatic 20-19 victory over the Hurricanes.

Deondre Francois’ toughness was on full display once again as he battled back from injury and big hits to lead FSU to their 7th straight win over Miami. Kermit Whitfield and Bobo Wilson each had 7 catches. 7 different players caught passes from Francois on the day. Dalvin Cook continued his dominance of Miami with 209 total yards and a touchdown.

Earlier in the week, the defensive players pledged to play harder and stop loafing. That effort combined with a simplified scheme led to a much better performance. Charles Kelly’s unit held Miami to 276 total yards. Mark Walton and Joe Yearby combined for 78 yards on 24 carries.

FSU returns home to play Wake Forest before a much needed bye week leading into the Clemson game.

FSU Overcomes Slow Start & Turnovers To Beat NCState

In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc & Nolebra Kai recaps the Noles’ 34-17 victory over the NCState Wolfpack.

111415_RenegadeReport

3 first half turnovers by Everett Golson led to a 10 point deficit and caused Jimbo Fisher to bench Golson and turn to Sean Maguire.  After 231 yards, 2 TDs and 27 unanswered points, we believe Sean Maguire will be the starting quarterback the rest of the season.  Dalvin Cook broke Warrick Dunn’s single season rushing record and totaled 155 yards from scrimmage on the day.

Defensively, we wonder aloud is it finally time to accept the fact that Charles Kelly is a good defensive coordinator.

We also discuss the importance of finishing the season 11-2 and how that can be beneficial for the 2016 season.

Noles Defense Dominates Boston College

In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc. & Nolebra Kai recap the Noles 14-0 victory over Boston College.

092015_RenegadeReport

FSU’s defense controlled the game from start to finish. Charles Kelly’s unit held the Eagles to 195 total yards and never allowed them to get into scoring range. Jalen Ramsey’s 36 yard scoop and score put an exclamation point on a dominant performance.

After the first drive of the game, FSU’s offense was offensive. There was no rhythm, there was no consistency and there were no more points scored. Dalvin Cook was held to 54 yards rushing on 15 carries.

The most shocking stat of the game was Cason Beatty averaging 52.3 yards on 7 punts.

With ¼ of the season completed and no game this week, we discuss what we know and what we think we know about the 2015 Seminoles’ football team.

After 8 hours of testimony it only took 24 minutes for the jury to come back with a unanimous not guilty verdict.  With the not guilty verdict, FSU immediately lifted his suspension and Cook is expected to practice with the team on Tuesday.

We also follow Jimbo Fisher down the yellow brick road and attempt to answer the following questions:

  • Who will start at Center, Right Guard and Right Tackle?
  • Just how bad have the receivers been playing?
  • When will Jimbo announce the starting QB?

2015 Wide Receiver & Defensive Back Preview

In this episode of The Renegade Report, Herc & Nolebra Kai preview the wide receiver and defensive back positions for the 2015 season.

072615_RenegadeReport

The wide receiver position features plenty of size and speed but it also features plenty of inexperience. Travis Rudolph and Jesus “BoBo” Wilson enter fall camp as the starters but expect Ermon Lane and Ja’Vonn “Pigg” Harrison to see plenty of snaps.

What kind of impact can we expect from newcomers: George Campbell, Auden Tate and Da’Vante Phillips?

Will Travis Rudolph emerge as the leader of the receiver corps now that Rashad Greene is off to the NFL?

There is no question that Jalen Ramsey is the leader of the defensive backfield. How will his move back to cornerback affect the rest of the secondary

How long will the other veterans of the secondary be able to fend off their younger, more talented teammates?

We also discuss ACC Media Day, preseason depth chart, injury updates and the latest developments in the Dalvin Cook case.

Now that spring practice has concluded, we take a position-by-position look at the team and discuss our confidence level for each segment going into the season.

While injuries limited participation for several key players this spring, most of those players will be full participants in summer workouts and fall camp.

Despite his poor performance in the spring game, Jimbo Fisher says he’s still confident in Sean Maguire. We discuss whether or not we believe him.
