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.

Last week it seemed likely, this week it seemed inevitable and today it became official; Jimbo Fisher is no longer FSU’s football coach.  He will sign a 10 year, 75 million dollar contract to become Texas A&M’s new coach.  Despite the way things ended, Jimbo Fisher should be applauded modernizing the program and bringing FSU their 3rd National Title.

The top target to replace Jimbo is Willie Taggart.  How do we feel about Taggart becoming FSU’s new coach?  What coaches are rumored to be joining him at FSU?
