Either you can be a chess master or you can't.
There is nothing I can teach you if you don't have the mental ability.
2- Why would he not consider the guy with the most experience? Either way, there's going to be a good battle this Spring for the #1 spot. Clint has the inside track with the experience, but Coker and Winston should give him a run. To say you're "outta here" if Jimbo "considers" Clint is ridiculous.
Sure did. Also used sales and education...
Why don't you ACTUALLY try a rebuttal? You may think football isn't complicated, but it just so happens that I don't think medicine is all that complicated. Both professions are high performance, stressful, and constantly under the microscope.
I am sorry you're having problems seeing the comparison. I really don't think I can be more clear.
No it isn't and Clint doesn't have much experience
Every game that he has come in that wasn't garbage time, FSU lost
Clint is easily the most pathetic looking QB prospect i have seen at FSU in my time being a fan of FSU
Every time he comes into a game i want to curl up and start crying
Did you just equate chess to coaching a defense?
No you didn't
People talk about coaching DB's under Saban and Smart like it's a bad thing. He's a coach of one of the most disciplined, best units in college ball, on one of the best defenses in college ball. I would say he's learned to call plays from one of the best. Let him loose, and let's get at it.
I agree to an extent. However, some people think having a coach in charge of the same unit as the HC is a common way to stash a coach who excels at recruiting. Kinda like Craig at FSU.
I think the guys is a tremendous coach, but we should be prepared for growing pains.
Now your just hating! Clint was thin, very thin. But he's 6'3, and standing next to Fisher he looks every bit of 6'3. He has a very good arm and knows what to do with the ball. If your judging him as being "horrible" because he's thin and doesn't run a 4.5 then that's just wrong. Weinke would also be horrible since he ran a 5.5 forty..
Pretty much did.
A lot more relevant than medicine.
What does winning the game have to do with experience? He's played some pretty tough opponents. It's not like all his time has been mopping up.
Look, I'm not saying Trickett is the answer. Truth is that I don't know. But you have no idea how he will develop in the Spring, so trust the coach to put in the best player.
I don't care how fast he is lol, i just think the kid sucks. This is based on what i have seen of him.
He played a terrible Clemson defense and lost, failed on the last drive
He came into OU game and did nothing really but get bailed out by Greene on a dangerous pass into double coverage. FSU lost
He looked just awful in a first half against Wake, so bad that FSU couldn't recover after his benching
Played in a good amount of games this season, didn't throw any great passes or TD's
The kid just isn't good, starting him next year would be the dumbest decision Jimbo could possibly make and would prove once and for all that he doesn't have a clue
Clint Trickett is not D1 material
Since you wanted a rebuttal to this failed mess.
Sales: Learn your product and it's advantages over the competitors and communicate to clients. Can be done very very quickly. One year is plenty.
Education: There are people without the 5 year degrees that can teach way more effectively than some who have studied for years. Those who have studied "teaching methods" are oftentimes less effective and robotic. Every one must learn the same way or they don't learn. That's why tutoring is so effective.
Medicine: The human body is infinitely more complex than a football field, the myriad of diseases and ailments far outnumber possible offensive plays, a doctor is pressed for time and doesn't have a week to spend studying the case of one patient, whereas a DC has a staff that will help him break down, analyze and study film all week to identify tendencies and develop a game plan. Once game plan is in place you might face a wrinkle or two that you can call time out and adjust to, as opposed to a doctor whose patient might be bleeding to death. No time outs there, think now, with a life on the line.
The fact that I had to point out some of differences in medicine vs FOOTBALL, gives me some insight to the mentality that went behind your post.
That was simply ridiculous.
I think you suck as a poster.
I'm not hating, I'm just using your history as an analysis.
You manage to get banned everywhere, why are they still letting you post?
He was a freshman playing behind an OL that was decimated with injuries and you will judge him only on that?
"Played in a good amount of games this season, didn't throw any great passes or TD's".....I'm sure he called his own plays.
I'm glad you're not coaching this team.
Oh i do, and im confident in won't be Clint
Been saying this for years, i played QB my whole life and know what im looking for, Clint doesn't have a single attribute that i covet from a starting QB
Kids future is in coaching, not playing
I think this was a solid hire.... if we stay at a 4-3 scheme
GO NOLES! / SCALP EM!
WillyDees, love that name. I read your post using Medicine, Education, and Sales as a reference to experience and hiring. While it has some truth the main thing is that these Doctors were training to become a doctor and same with teachers. They went to schools had training to become the professional that they are today and were hired based upon there training. Some turn out to be amazing Docs and Teachers based upon the type of person they are and knowledge obviously isnt the end all be all with this as there is a personality type for success. Sales on the other hand you either have it or you dont but most major sales jobs want at least 3-5 years experience in a related field. I will add related experience that doesnt mean that an Ortho Rep is the only rep who will be successful at this job. A young copier rep can come in and destroy a complacent experienced Med Rep especially if he/she has that it factor.
I say all of that to say this, Coach Pruitt was trained at the most prestigious school of any in College Football in essence. He has learned the system that works and helped coach some of the best players in the last 3 years College Football has seen. Wouldnt you agree that this is a good opportunity to get a coach in position to change the culture on that side of the ball? Experience is very overrated IMO as it pertains to a certain title for coaching if you are on staff at FSU as the LB coach you better know every position around you and what its job is. I willl add that his training grounds started at a young age as his dad is a coach and everything he has done has brought him to this point. I trust Jimbo with this hire and think its great.

Cool post but shows why you are a hot head just like me and sometimes don't think things through
Ever think that i get second chances cause not everybody feels the same as you do ? Its not like im hiding with NoVa in my name. Face brah, Im a die hard FSU fan and im not going anywherez... Prepare thy anus cause im coming in long and hard with no regard for ass hairs
Not one bit.
To say experience wouldn't make someone better at their job is just dumb. DUMB.
Pruitt may end up being a great DC, but to say he either has it or he doesn't means you're swinging from Jimbo's short hairs and he could have hired me and you'd be OK with it.
If nothing else experience gives you a track record of some sort. Pruitt's track record is at the HS level and as a position coach. I'm sure Jimbo knows what he's doing, but you guys sound ridiculous tossing experience out the window like that.
Clint has a D1 brain and D1 hair....nothing else about the kid is FSU quality. I'm praying black td jesus is the answer because I"m not betting on bama bangs ever starting here either. And I aways foret McGuire is still around. lol.
I wasn't even upset.
I was merely mirroring you post for fun.
You get second chances because most posters, myself included, don't care what the hell you say. I don't mind you being here, you can dish it out, but like others you don't whine when someone replies in same fashion. I'm good with that.
As far as Trickett goes, you may be right about where his future lies, but I don't think you have more information than the coaches who watch him everyday.
Mop up duty and last year's cluster OL do not provide enough evidence that he is or isn't the guy. He'll have his shot just like the rest of them.
I'd knock your teeth out because your anus is dirty.
No one said it wouldn't make him better at their job if they have the mental capacity to do that job.
What people are saying is that if he has what it takes, he will learn quickly, very quickly.
There are a lot of experienced retreads out there who wouldn't be better candidates than Pruitt.
