It was supposed to be the ACC game of the year and a potential top 5 showdown under the lights at Doak Campbell stadium. Instead, FSU enters the game with 2 losses and a defense that has struggled with every mobile quarterback they’ve faced this season. The secondary has given up way too many big plays whether they’re in man or zone. How will they stop Deshaun Watson and his talented set of receivers?

Jimbo Fisher’s offense has started slow in every D1 game they’ve played this season. Can the offensive line create enough holes for Dalvin cook to run through? Will the offensive line give Deondre Francois enough time work the intermediate and deep passing game? Can the receivers win enough 1-on-1 battles to force the Clemson defense to play honest?

Noles Make It 7 Straight Against Miami

In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc & Nolebra Kai recap the Noles dramatic 20-19 victory over the Hurricanes.

Deondre Francois’ toughness was on full display once again as he battled back from injury and big hits to lead FSU to their 7th straight win over Miami. Kermit Whitfield and Bobo Wilson each had 7 catches. 7 different players caught passes from Francois on the day. Dalvin Cook continued his dominance of Miami with 209 total yards and a touchdown.

Earlier in the week, the defensive players pledged to play harder and stop loafing. That effort combined with a simplified scheme led to a much better performance. Charles Kelly’s unit held Miami to 276 total yards. Mark Walton and Joe Yearby combined for 78 yards on 24 carries.

FSU returns home to play Wake Forest before a much needed bye week leading into the Clemson game.

The calendar turned to October and FSU is already out of contention for both a National and ACC title. Charles Kelly should not be the defensive coordinator in 2017 but we wonder aloud what other changes need to be made.

It’s hard to criticize Jimbo Fisher’s game plan when the offense scores 35 points and nearly 600 yards despite 3 missed field goals. However, we question Jimbo’s decision not to go for it on fourth down more often; especially with the defense playing so poorly.

Next up is Miami. Will FSU make it seven straight over the Hurricanes or is this the year Miami fans will finally have bragging rights again?

Noles Break Camp, Turn Attention To Ole Miss

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

FSU broke fall camp and began their game week prep for Ole Miss. Jimbo Fisher “officially” named Deondre Francois the starting quarterback although we’ve all known it for quite some time.

It appears that most of the position battles we envisioned going into fall camp have been decided by injuries and missed practice time. That’s not to say the outcomes would’ve been any different, but the intrigue was removed with the missed practice time.

Strength & Conditioning coach, Vic Viloria was arrested for DUI over the weekend. What’s the appropriate punishment… Suspension? Termination?

The questions surrounding this team haven’t changed since the conclusion of spring practice. When fall camp begins on Tuesday, some of those question will begin to get answered.

How bad does Deondre Francois have to play for Sean Maguire to be the starting quarterback against Ole Miss on September 5th. How deep will the WR rotation be? With 9 offensive linemen having starting experience, could we see an in-game offensive line rotation?

Defensively, just how deep is the DL? How many game ready linebackers do we have going into fall camp? How will the secondary rotation and snap distribution settle out?

SpringPracticePreview

Many fans, us included, think FSU will be National Title contenders in 2016. At the same time, those same fans acknowledge that in order for that to happen, several questions not only have to be answered but answered favorably if the Noles are going to have any shot at making the playoffs.

Talent, expectations and uncertainty make this the most exciting spring practice in recent memory. We break down each position group by discussing: what we know, what we don’t know, and what we think.

FSU Remains Undefeated After Victory Over Louisville

In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc & Nolebra Kai recap the Noles’ 41-21 win over Louisville.

After a slow first half, Everett Golson led the FSU offense to 35 2nd half points. He finished the day 26 – 38 for 372 yards, 3 TDs and 0 INTs. Dalvin Cook had 223 yards from scrimmage with 2 TDs. Kermit Whitfield had his best day as a receiver finishing with 9 receptions, 172 yards and a TD.

Defensively, Charles Kelly’s unit was able to tally 5 sacks and held dual threat QB Lamar Jackson to only 32 yards rushing. It wasn’t all good for the defense however. For the 2nd straight week they allowed too many 3rd down conversions and for the 2nd straight week Tyler Hunter was abused by opposing receivers after Trey Marshall was forced to leave the game early. We wonder aloud if it’s time to move Jalen Ramsey back to the Star position.

We also preview Saturday’s game against Georgia Tech.
