The E.J. Manuel is upon us, who now sports a 6-2 record with New Years Day(ish) bowl wins. The OL has 2 big losses in Hudson and McMahon, but FSU returns a sick quartet of CBs and an experienced DL.

I think they'll easily be the ACC favorites and probably a preseason Top 10 team.

Thoughts?

Not preseason top 10, but next year is absolutely ACC champions or bust. They now have the talent and the coaching. It's time to get back to owning this conference.

The fact that they retain their entire Defensive Line and Defensive Backfield make them my preseason favorites to win the ACC. EJ Manuel and that run game have a lot of potential. I doubt they'll be among the nation's elite but they may very well be the best team in Florida and best in the ACC.

It looks like a good recruiting class coming in and the team has a nice bowl win over an SEC team to finish the season after not closing out a couple games this year.

A pretty good opening season for Jimbo, but a statement win over Oklahoma next season would be a nice sign that the program is fast-tracked on its way back to where it once was.

Oklahoma is probably the one game FSU won't be favored in during the preseason going into 2011. A win in that game early on, especially after how this season went, and FSU COULD go 12-0. Reasonably I would expect 10-2 to 11-1.

Jadeveon Clowney is visiting FSU officially this weekend after the Under Armour AA game.

I've been surprisingly confident in the last month and a half or so. James Wilder was an after thought for coming to FSU, but he spent a whole weekend here instead of being at Friday Night Lights, and the coaches sold him. I trust this coaching staff. I think Jimbo and co. can work their magic again.

There was a little update on Warchant on Clowney. He said that he was "very impressed" with how FSU's D performed against South Carolina. He also mentioned that he has watched most of FSU's games this year. I think we have a better chance at getting Clowney than most think. The biggest thing will be selling his mother.

It also helps that Karlos Williams and Wilder(pretty sure he's visiting) will be here this weekend

EDIT:Now Clowney has rescheduled his visit for Jan. 28th because of an award presentation this weekend. We get the last visit.

Wow the improvement in just one year is staggering, especially the development of Brandon Jenkins. In two games where he went up against elite NFL prospects (BC and BYU) he dominated. He could very well hold every major defensive record for a FSU DL by the time he ends (Sacks and TFLs).

Rumors swirling that Aaron Lynch is re-opening his recruitment AGAIN.
http://www.irishsportsdaily.com/recruiting/notre-dame-football-recruiting/3938-aaron-lynch-to-reopen-recruitment
Per Bud Elliott at TomahawkNation....

What we know right now:
- The talented defensive end's mother told Irish Sports Daily that he is re-opening his recruitment will take a visit to Notre Dame this weekend. Lynch was committed to Notre Dame before flipping to Florida State.
- Lynch's mother has been quite vocal about her preference for Aaron to attend Notre Dame. I don't believe any report about him de-committing until Aaron, and not his mother, says it.
- Lynch has pulled his Facebook page down.
- Lynch is still set to enroll at Florida State on Monday. It is believed that he cannot early-enroll at Notre Dame (different academic standards) like he could at Florida State.
- I think Lynch turns 18 on February 8th, and am not sure what effect that has on him signing a LOI.
- As of Noon Friday, FSU should still be considered the leader for Lynch's services.

01-07-2011, 12:29 PM
Just bored at work, and since Lynch was at one time an Iowa target, just felt like keeping up on his drama (or more, his mother's).

But I think at the very least a LOI is treated like any other contract and if a kid is under 18 his parent/guardian must sign with/for him. So if Lynch wants to sign on signing day, his mom or dad would need to sign. Not sure that matters if he's already going to class at FSU by that time, he might as well just wait to turn 18 a little while later and sign himself.

MassNole
01-07-2011, 12:34 PM
He turns 18 within a week of a NSD, so in case his mother is of the quality of Whitney Lewis' mother it doesn't seem many, if any, FSU insiders are too worried.

iowatreat54
01-07-2011, 12:46 PM
Yea, his mom sounds like she wants to be Sean Henderson-light.

But yea, if he's going to be already in school and turns 18 that week, it really doesn't matter.

BigJohn98
01-07-2011, 01:00 PM
Moms need to stay the **** out of recruiting. She's not the one going to college the next four years or playing college football.

Anyway, Lynch hasn't decommited, but he's feeling unsure about how bad the coaches want him. He's supposed to call the coached later. This per Warchant.

Per Josh Newberg of FSU 24/7

2:15pm
I'm told by an excellent source that Aaron Lynch has been told a few un-true rumors.
It started 3 or 4 days ago with the word that Jimbo would be leaving to take the LSU job.
Lynch and his mom have been told that his High School coach has been paid in order to get Lynch to FSU. That is 100% false.
Another fact that I can confirm is that Lynch was a borderline qualifier. He is NCAA qualified, but he even had to go in front of the review board at FSU. Not sure how Notre Dame could get him in if he's borderline at Florida State.




Basically Notre Dame can't recruit like a real team so they need to slander FSU to try and get a kid to waste his future.

BigJohn98
01-07-2011, 04:18 PM
Regardless of what the situation is, if he wants to go somewhere else, let him go. If the coaches didn't want him, they wouldn't have recruited him. These kids are such drama queens.

Oh yeah FSU is a real honest program. Do you realize the only reason Lynch de-committed from ND in the first place was because FSU was telling him he would flunk out and the academics were to hard for him at ND.

MassNole
01-07-2011, 06:01 PM
He barely got into FSU, even as a football player. I think questioning his ability to make it academically at Notre Dame is legitimate, but as for that falsity, the play of FSU's DL and the programs overall success compared to that of Notre Dame was the reason he switched, same with Jordan Prestwood. Can't blame kids for not wanting to lose at home to Tulsa.

DE B.J. Dubose took an OV to FSU this weekend. (http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/sfl-bj-dubose-visiting-fsu-010711,0,6930935.story)

I haven't heard anything about him, but this was obviously set up well before the Aaron Lynch fiasco and good reports about Clowney at the UA game. The article mentions he is being looked at by Miami as a TE, so maybe he is a backup plan to O'Leary at TE?

(I've conceded Fulse to Auburn even if O'Leary somehow falls through)

Im saying that there were more schools in his recruiting than just FSU and UF so I think just assuming that some negative recruiting happened by 1 of those schools just cuz its convenient for you is pretty lame.

Also, it is far from a fact that Lynch was ever told this line, thusfar it looks like purely made up piece of BS anyway.

And no I dont believe in Santa Claus, the easter bunny is a different thing though.

As I see it the only one who has been claiming this is a butthurt FSU mod who wasnt close to lynch throughout the process anyway.

I still think Lynch will end up a Nole although im obviously hoping he doesnt but thinking that A the rumor is undeniably truthfull and how it subsequently would be sure to come from the ND staff is just flat out ********.

FSU and Clowney is becoming quite the discussion now.

Bushido said on twitter in recent tweets:

"Interesting...I don't blame Lynch for being scared if what I just heard turns out to be true."

"There was a lot of male bonding(no ****) in St. Pete. Things were said, & passed on to kids in San Antonio who play the same position."

That could only be Clowney, because I doubt that Chickillo would scare off Lynch. No offense to Chick, of course.

From my understanding he is enrolled at TCCC right now and would be a walkon, we won't know til the summer because someone could offer him a scholarship out of the blue and he goes there. Or it could be he doesn't get the grades he needs at TCCC to transfer to FSU and delays the process another year.

3. Timmy Jernigan--If he puts on the weight over the summer, I expect him to be a big part of the DT rotation

I think I'm going to hop on the 'Noles bandwagon. They have so many of my favorite recruits from the past couple classes. I'm usually more of a Miami guy, but damn, these Jimbo classes are sick.

Some of my favorites from the past two classes include Williams, Jeff Luc, LaMarcus Joyner, Timmy Jernigan, James Wilder, Jordan Prestwood (LOL ND) and Christian Jones. I feel like the Seminoles have done a great job of addressing both lines.

Nice looking class. Lost the linebacker, but not a huge surprise with bringing in four in last year's class.

Clowney would put this over the top and really bring the hate. Probably a lot to hope for considering how well things have already gone.

The lines and the secondary really loaded up and it would be nice if the quarterback is better than his rating like Jimbo says.

Now, if Manuel gets things going early and an upset of the Sooners happens we could be in business.

Looks good....

However I'd say Jeff Luc beats out Vince Williams at LB and Amp McCloud beats out Dawkins at DT. Not that it will matter in the rotation we'll use. Just like at RB, whereas Thompson will be the #1 option the likes of Jermaine Thomas, Ty Jones, Devonta Freeman, and James Wilder will see a good amount of carries.

You picked a good time, I attended FSU from 08-10 so I only had one year that didn't make me want to tear my hair out. But I did get to see the final games of Bobby and Mickey, and the beating of UF.

But FSU is such a blast, nothing is more fun than football season in Tallahassee.

Our special teams are going to be insane next year, Hopkins is a freak and should only continue to get better. Powell is one of the best punters in the nation, he's a draftable guy to me. Not to mention Reid on PR's where he seemed to get his mojo back. All those young studs we've brought in should be a terror as well.

i finally caught some of the game online yesterday. I didn't think it through that some of the freshman wouldn't be outta hs yet, but i did see Waisome and Freeman. I agree the offense looked pretty bad. However seems like all the spring games i've seen have had bad offense. Hopefully this isn't a sign of things to come. Manuel seem to force too many balls which turned into interceptions. I realize the offensive line was a total joke in this game, but i hope EJ makes better decisions during the season. He has incredible talent, just needs to settle in and take what opens up for him.

Brandon Jenkins was a freaking stud. Seemingly unblockable in the 1st quarter. I think he had like two sacks, a tackle for a loss, and three or four more hurries. Absolutely ridiculous.

Terrance Parks also had a really good showing I thought. Made some really nice plays on the ball and read routes well.

LOL, guess I was right he'd be a higher pick than Tim Tebow at the end of the day. Like they said on TomahawkNation, he is a perfect fit for the West Coast Offense in the NFL. Out of the first round QBs in 2011 he is without a doubt in the best position for success with a group of solid WRs and the best RB in the NFL behind him.

EDIT:
I just went over to OS and read the NFL Draft thread, LMFAO at them. This board is much better, but honestly you should tell the other OS Noles to check The-Mainboard out. It is pretty much just like OS, without the stupid rules designed to keep it PG friendly.

I agree, I think Ponder is in a perfect position right now. As long as he can stay heathly in his career he should have a good career may never be Peyton Manning but he will be a good starter.

It looks like a good recruiting class coming in and the team has a nice bowl win over an SEC team to finish the season after not closing out a couple games this year.

A pretty good opening season for Jimbo, but a statement win over Oklahoma next season would be a nice sign that the program is fast-tracked on its way back to where it once was.

How much action will Kelvin Benjamin see this year?

MassNole
05-30-2011, 07:09 AM
It will depend on his ability to learn the playbook and run routes. Freshmen WRs generally take a season to get acclimated to Fisher's offense and generally don't see a lot of run. Take Kenny Shaw last season, he is probably the best route runner on the team, but only saw limited action behind Reed, Easterling, Smith, and Haulstead. All of whom could be back, although Easterling probably goes to MLB. However on FSU's board, Fisher had Benjamin as the top WR in the country and made him a top priority to sign, so I think he'll see some time.

That said how scary would it be line up to 6'6 monsters on the outside and then put a talent like Christian Green in the slot?

He will have a greater impact at safety rather than corner because he'll be on the field at safety more than he would at corner this year. He wouldn't have seen a lot of time at corner this year due to our three deep at corner being so good.

S is his natural position, the initial concern was that he was too small to play S in college, but this Spring he showed that fear was misguided. He may be small, but he hits like fellow Smurf Greg Reid and has much better tackling technique. I won't be surprised if by Week 5 the starting S's aren't Joyner and Karlos Williams.

Kelvin Benjamin checked into FSU at 6'6" 230 lbs. Now he's up to 248 lbs and ran a 4.5. He's been dominating 7-on-7. None of our corners can cover him.

Can't wait to see these midgets try and cover him.

Is Lamarcus Joyner FS or SS?????

2011 OUTLOOK
Made the move to his natural position of safety during spring practice and emerged as the starter at strong safety heading into the fall giving FSU more versatility. Displays tremendous range because of his great speed which allows him to cover a lot of ground in the secondary.

Not the best offensive game, but I am happy with what I saw for the most part from E.J. & the wide receivers, Haggins, Shaw had nice days. Bert Reed had a few nice grabs. Rodney Smith stepped up. Running Game didn't look good till Freeman got in but Jimbo didn't show his cards and kept it simple enough to pull out the win.

to far behind prolly, he was in on the snap of Trickett's TD. Not coming in early has hurt him for one. As the season goes on I see him getting a few carries.

As a Gator fan, go Sooners!

I've been impressed with direction the Seminoles are headed over the past couple years...but this is the second straight year I've picked Stoops to win a title.

Landry Jones will be the 'Nole Killer

I too hope FSU wins, but even if they don't, it doesn't end their BCS chances or guarantee a National Championship trip for Oklahoma. Oklahoma still has to play Texas A&M and then go to Oklahoma State. I think the Sooners are better than either team but by no means are those two games cake walks.

As for the Seminoles, even if they lose (unless they are completely demolished in this game) still look like the class of the ACC. A loss probbaly takes them out of the running for the title but I think a BCS bid is very much still in play either way.

I have never seen an atmosphere like what I saw last night in Doak. I was there front row in the student section, and it was ******* electric. When Rashad Greene caught the TD pass, it was a mob scene. I'd never seen anything like it before. I was so disappointed we couldn't come away with the victory.

A few of my thoughts from the game:

-Our defense is the real deal. Unless there is a game this year where they don't even show up at all, we won't be getting blown out by anyone. It's amazing what has happened over the course of two years. If that was the 09 FSU defense last night, Oklahoma probably wins by 70.

-EJ still has a long way to go. His decision making is still iffy, but that will come with more time. Charlie Ward wasn't a stud in his first year starting either. We are screwed if he gets seriously hurt this year.

-Our offensive line will be our achilles heel all year long. The interior is just about pathetic. If we want to be able to keep pressure off of EJ, we need to run the damn ball.

-I was proud of how this team competed. It definitely shows we can compete with the elite teams again. Disappointed, but proud.

FSU's defense was impressive. That DE Werner was a one man wrecking crew. I was more impressed with Datko, I don't know why people think Zebrie Sanders is better.

Who in the world thinks Zebrie is better?

Datko is the only lineman we have that is worth a flip. The rest of our starters are average at best.

I wish Rodney Hudson could have been cloned.

The complete lack of any time of run blocking really confuses me. I mean they return alot of experience, lost some important guys but it shouldn't be this big of a drop off. We really need to work out the kinks there as we can't afford to just not be able to run the ball.

Defense is freaking legit, D-Line is insanely deep and everyone was making an impact. Werner dominates and Jenkins is still getting an insane jump on the ball. The new guys have been awesome too with Christian Jones and Joyner being some of the best players. Really pleased with the leap Bradham has taken too, he is a big time player.

Penalties always seemed to come on third downs when the defense would get a stop.

The running game just gets worse, and worse, and worse, and worse, and worse...

I think getting so pumped up for the OU game came back to bite FSU in the arse. FSU looked awesome in the game, but weren't able to come away with the win. I think had you won, you would be undefeated right now. Best to take everything a game at a time, yeah?

The refs calling a fair game vs. Clemson would have helped.

--------------------------------------

Rumors swirling Andrew Datko might try to get a medical RS for this season and be back in 2012, also rumors saying he won't do this because he can't stand Rick Trickett. Also looks like FSU will make a run for Juco LT Kyle Long, the one time baseball player at FSU who flunked out in a semester. Virginia falls of the schedule for 2012, his only year of eligibility, so there is chance he comes in as a stop gap to give Josue Matias another year to develop.

I'd guess if Datko comes back, no Kyle Long.

I wouldn't say he sucked because he never really got on the field. His football IQ was much lower than expected so he had to move to Will from Mike where he was originally behind Nigel Bradham.
