2016 Season Recap

In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc. & Nolebra Kai recap the Noles’ 2016 season.

FSU finished the 2016 season by winning their last 5 games and 7 of the last 8.  Despite that finish, Herc. still feels like the season was a disappointment.  Jimbo Fisher and the coaching staff didn’t push the right buttons early in the season to get maximum effort from the players.  The offensive line continued to struggle.  The biggest disappointment was all the injuries (notably Derwin James) that prevented us from seeing just how good this team could be.

Despite the disappointments, there were several positives takeaways from the season.  FSU swept Florida and Miami for the 4th straight season.  They also proved to be the more physical team in their Orange Bowl victory over Michigan.

We also discuss whether or not there will be some coaching changes in the off season.

Fast Start Fuels FSU Blowout Over Boston College

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.

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?

2016 Fall Camp – Week 1 Recap

In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc. & Nolebra Kai recap the first week of fall camp.

With Sean Maguire sidelined 4-6 weeks, Deondre Francois is slated to be the starting QB on September 5th against Ole Miss. With no quality backups, will Jimbo adjust his gameplan to protect Francois more?

Nyqwan Murray was dominant in the open practice on Sunday but we both feel he won’t make a major contribution at wide receiver until 2017.

The combinations of Wilson Bell/Brock Ruble & Cole Minshew/Rick Leonard are battling to be the starting tandem on the right side of the offensive line. Each tandem has alternated days with the starting offense.

The incoming freshman class is impressive physically. Not including the kickers, we expect at least 2 of them to make an impact this season.
