Life without Dalvin Cook begins.  We expect a committee approach to replacing his productivity.  Although he’s true freshman, we expect Cam Akers to be Jacques Patrick’s primary backup to start the season.

Fans will delight in the fact that it is literally impossible for the offense to feature a “midget package” at wide receiver.  Jokes aside, the development of this unit will be the key to Deondre Francois’ development.

The offensive line will feature more size but does bigger equal better?

We also discuss Dameyune Craig’s return to FSU as an offensive analyst.

We open the podcast by discussing the question everyone is asking: who should start Saturday, Everett Golson or Sean Maguire? What are the chances Jimbo uses a 2 QB system? Does the quarterback decision change our prediction for the game?

Defensively, Jalen Ramsey and Marquez White have begun labeling themselves the best cornerback tandem in the country. They will be tested early and often by Clemson’s wide receivers. What are realistic expectations for the defense against the Tigers’ high powered offense?

Noles “Solid” In Win Vs. Texas State

In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc & Nolebra Kai recap the Noles 59-16 victory over the Texas State Bobcats.

Everett Golson made his FSU debut Saturday night and completed 19 of 25 passes for 302 yards,  4 touchdowns with 0 interceptions.  The passing attack was set up by a dominant running attack that was established early in the game.  FSU ran the ball on 23 of the first 32 offensive plays and tallied 266 total rushing yards.  Dalvin Cook led the way with 156 rushing yards on just 19 carries.  He also scored 2 touchdowns.

The defense was more physical and really hustled to the ball.  Despite only having 1 sack, the Noles were still able to get pressure on the QB and force him to get rid of the ball sooner than he wanted to.  The defensive line in pressure packages was: Josh Sweat, Giorgio Newberry, Demarcus Walker and Jacob Pugh.

Overall it was a bad night for the special teams.  Kermit Whitfield and Jalen Ramsey had good kickoff returns but those were offset by: 2 fumbled punt returns, a fake punt conversion allowed, 2 bad punts and 2 kickoffs that sailed out of bounds.

2015 Fall Camp – Week 2 Recap

In this episode of the Renegade Report Herc & Nolebra Kai recap an eventful week on and off the field for the Seminoles.

081615_RenegadeReport

On the field, FSU held their first scrimmage of fall camp.  As expected, Jimbo said there was good and bad on both sides of the ball.  Chris Casher and Lorenzo Featherson will both be sidelined after minor knee surgeries.  Featherson is expected back in 1-2 weeks.  Casher also has a sprained MCL so his recovery will take 3-4 weeks.

During the week, Jimbo hinted that we may see more 2 TE sets this season.  Just how much should we expect to see?

Is it time to reevaluate our expectations for DE Josh Sweat this season?

Off the field, a trial date for Dalvin Cook has been set.  Matthew Thomas has been ruled ineligible for the 2015 season and FSU released their plan to address / prevent off the field issues.
