5 Disappointing Days Of FSU Football

In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc. & Nolebra Kai recap the Noles 36-26 victory over Samford and give our late thoughts on FSU’s Labor Day loss to Virginia Tech.

Defensive Coordinator Harlon Barnett said the most improvement happens between game 1 and game 2. If that’s the case, FSU fans better brace for a long, frustrating and disappointing season. Monday night the offense scored 3 points in 4 red zone opportunities. Saturday night, the defense allowed Samford to throw for 475 yards.

Needless to say, it was a disappointing 5 days of Noles’ Football but at the same time, it’s way too early to make any declarations about Willie Taggart’s coaching ability or his future success at FSU.

The Chase Ends; The Journey Is Set To Begin

In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc & Nolebra Kai discuss “The Chase” and the ongoing efforts to change the culture surrounding the program.

Whether you wanted Jimbo Fisher to stay or you’re happy that he left, the one thing that is not debatable is the culture within the program was broken. The first signs of this can be traced back to the 2014 season and the issues continued to mount until the day he finally resigned.

For Willie Taggart, in order to change the on-field results this season, he must first change the sense of entitlement and lack of accountability that ruined what was a championship culture  just 4 short years ago.

That change officially began with Willie Taggart’s offseason conditioning program called “The Chase”.  It was the first chance for the players to get on the field and work with their new coaches.  Now that it’s concluded, the one major takeaway from The Chase is that they players once again realize that it’s ok to work hard AND have fun.

Now that spring practice is around the corner, concerns have risen about Willie Taggart and his staff’s inexperience when it comes to coaching in big games.  Another concern that’s been voiced is the fact that Taggart’s teams have been heavily penalized.

Too Many Black Coaches?

In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc & Nolebra Kai discuss the new coaching hires and the composition of the staff.

Going into the offseason, FSU fans felt like the 2 most important hires Willie Taggart had to make were the Defensive Coordinator and Offensive Line Coach. With the hiring of Harlon Barnett and Greg Frey, Taggart has made 2 solid hires despite a lack of name recognition.

As expected, the ethnic makeup of this staff is an issue with some FSU fans. We discuss the impact this could have on recruiting and booster support.
