FSU vs UF Preview & Prediction

In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc. & Nolebra Kai preview Saturday’s game against the Florida Gators.

112316_renegadereport

With a win Saturday night, FSU seniors would finish their career a perfect 8-0 against Florida and Miami.  To accomplish that, the Seminoles defense must shut down the Gators’ rushing attack and force Austin Appleby to beat them through the air.  Marquez White and Tarvarus McFadden will have to contain a dangerous receiver in Antonio Calloway.

Offensively, FSU’s receivers must beat man coverage and win their one-on-one battles against a talented Gators’ secondary.  Will Jimbo Fisher utilize Deondre Francois’ mobility in the running and passing game to help neutralize the Gators’ attacking defensive line.  With no game next week, expect Dalvin Cook to get as many carries as necessary to win the game.

We also discuss the Jimbo Fisher to LSU rumors and what should be Jimbo’s negotiating play this time around.

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?

What FSU Must Do To Upset Clemson

In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc & Nolebra Kai preview Saturday’s showdown against Clemson.

102416_renegadereport

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?

Outplayed, Outcoached, Outclassed

In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc & Nolebra Kai recap the Noles’ 63-20 loss to Louisville.

Simply put, FSU was outplayed, outcoached and outclassed yesterday. After the embarrassing loss, we take a closer look at the state of the program and discuss some inconvenient truths.

FSU is 6-4 in their last 10 games. Despite being told otherwise, Dalvin Cook is not healthy. Derwin James being out and Josh Sweat being limited doesn’t excuse giving up 63 points….the most in school history.

Physically, the talent is still there to have a successful season. The question is how will this team respond mentally and emotionally after being beat by 43 points.

The quest for a 4th National Title begins Monday night. How will Deondre Francois handle the moment? Will the reshuffled offensive line be able to open up running lanes for Dalvin Cook? Is the defense equipped to stop Chad Kelly and his receiver unit? Will Charles Kelly have his unit prepared for the Rebels up tempo attack?

Will FSU go 12-0 in the regular season? We make our predictions.

Noles Break Camp, Turn Attention To Ole Miss

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

082816_RenegadeReport

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?

2016 Fall Camp – Week 1 Recap

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

081416_RenegadeReport

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.

2016 Fall Camp Preview

In this episode of the Renegade Report, Herc & Nolebra Kai discuss the start of fall camp for the 2016 Seminoles.

080716_RenegadeReport

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?
