In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc & Nolebra Kai recap the Noles’ 52-13 victory over Chattanooga.

112415_RenegadeReport

After an expected slow start, FSU used their superior talent and depth to dispatch of the Mocs.

Now everyone’s attention turns to the Florida Gators.  How will the offensive line hold up against the Gators’ front 4?  Can the receivers get open against a very good Florida secondary?  How will Sean Maguire handle the pressure of the Swamp’s hostile environment?

Defensively, the key to the Noles’ success is stopping the run, setting the edge and keeping Treon Harris in the pocket.  Despite their offensive struggles at various points throughout the season, there is still plenty of talent on the Gators’ offense.

We also briefly discuss the Jimbo Fisher to LSU rumors.

Missed Opportunities Cost The Noles A Chance To Upset Clemson

In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc & Nolebra Kai discuss the Noles’ 23-13 loss to Clemson.

Last week we opened the podcast by asking who should start at quarterback. This week we open the podcast by asking did Jimbo’s decision cost FSU a game they could have won. Sean Maguire went 16-29, 164 yards 0 TDs and 1 Int. Despite numerous attempts, the vertical passing attack was virtually non-existent.

Once again, the defense played well enough to win a game that was ultimately lost but once again the defense failed to get a stop at the most crucial time of the game.

With no chance at an ACC title and no chance at a National title, we wonder aloud is it time to turn the page to 2016 and start getting more playing time for the younger players.

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 Defense Dominates Boston College

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

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.

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.

080215_RenegadeReport

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.

2015 Spring Practice Recap

In this episode of The Renegade Report, Herc. & Nolebra Kai recap FSU’s 2015 spring practice.

041915_RenegadeReport

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.

2015 Spring Practice – Week 1 Recap

In this episode of The Renegade Report, Herc & Nolebra Kai recap the first week of spring practice.

032215_RenegadeReport

3 practices are in the books and while some off season questions have been answered, several questions still remain. Seminoles’ fans expected a quarterback battle this spring but it appears that Sean Maguire is fully entrenched as the starter.

It also appears that 4/5 of the starting offensive line has been established. The question is: who will be the starting center?

Defensively, we’ve seen a glimpse of the 2 deep but we’re no closer to answering the biggest defensive question: will the pass rush will improve? We do feel comfortable saying the 2015 defense will be hungrier and nastier than last season.

Jimbo Fisher has been pleased with the attitude and chemistry of this team. We question how much of those feelings are genuine and how much is him trying to instill confidence into a young / inexperienced team.

29-1: Looking Back, Looking Forward

In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc. & Nolebra Kai recap FSU’s 59-20 loss to Oregon in the College Football Playoffs.

010415_RenegadeReport

Missed opportunities early followed by a plethora of turnovers in the 3rd quarter ultimately led to the Noles 29 game winning streak coming to an abrupt end. What did we learn? What changes need to be made?

We also look back at the 29 game winning streak starting with the state of the program following a home loss to Florida and an uninspiring Orange Bowl victory over Northern Illinois to where it stands now: poised to be in the National Title hunt for the foreseeable future.

Finally, we talk about the future of the program with the arrival of several early-enrollee recruits who make up “Tribe15”; FSU’s talented 2015 recruiting class.
