Do we look like a top 10 team?
Yes. We probably averaged 6 yards a carry tonight and for the most part played smart and clean. EJ floated a few tonight and stork started slow but overall we look the part right now.
I have 2 tickets on the 40 yard line @ Maryland if anyone is interested. Will be fun watching FSU and Clemson this year. My terps suck ass
Agreed. I think we looked pretty solid, def a couple of mistakes but overall very good
FSU -->----->> The Unconquered Uprising
Hard to say, our D is elite as we already know. Offense looks better than last year. I need to see us vs an FBS team.
Yes, Our starting offensive line just imposed their will. Running backs played excellent. Receivers showed that we have probably the best group in the nation. As for defense... Just wow. If EJ can settle down and show how good we all think he can be I see no reason for us not to finish top 5.
looked like the 90s, not perfect but it was the first game against a pretty well coached but outmanned team and we scored at will. Defense, solid. Offense could do whatever they wanted but chose to run more.
FSU did what was expected. They kept EJ off his back and ran the ball. Defense played well but didn;t really show a whole lot. Ran a lot better against the crap teams we played last year
Not sold on EJ
For our first game I definitely think we looked a top 10 team GO NOLES!!!
I missed some of the game b/c ISP was here fixing some issues with the internet, but from what I saw we are a legit team this year. Just need to fix some issues, to many 3 and outs, especially vs this lack of a opponent.
EJ cut down on floating passes. OL mainly, the Center (Barron) was getting beat way to many times by their DTs. If he's getting beat by their DTs, imagine vs quality D1 DTs?
Defense needs to calm down, play with a level head. 2 personal foul penalties are 2 to many.
Running game looks better, a lot better.
looked alot better than a few other top 10 teams that played this week. its murry state but if you look at the fundamental aspect were getting there
FSU Ambassador to the masses
We had 285 yards rushing on 42 carries.
We couldn't do that last season against ANYONE, cupcake or not.
Nobody is making excuses for the OL (remember the 3-3-5?). Major improvement. FSU looks really good.
FSU Football. Making cool the new swag since 2013.
We looked really, really good IMO. Def looked like a top 10 team IMO. I know it was a FCS school, but we did everything a top 10 school should do against an out-matched opponent. Compare that to, say, uf vs. Bowling Green
I just have to reiterate how thrilled I am with the O-Line. They just did what they wanted tonight. A lot stronger and smarter group. The tackles really showed that they can actually play football and the guards showed why most call them both future NFL'ers. Center was shaky but I have a feeling that will get fixed.
Not reading into the first two games at all. FSU did what they should do against such an opponent.

Slow start, ended up like it should have. Still in wait and see mode, I mean after all it was Murray ST.
I refuse to answer till after Wake
They didn't come out as aggressive as I would have liked but overall, great game. They did what a top 10 team is supposed to do against an FCS. Looks like it'll be a fun season.
People need to temper expectations until we see them play a real team. Yes I know we couldn't run like this last year against FCS teams. But seriously, let us see how they handle some competition.
USC, Bama, FSU should be the top 3. UGA, LSU, Michigan, Arkansas, USCjr all looked meh imo. Idk about Oregon did not see anything on them.
GO NOLES! / SCALP EM!
oregon doesnt play till 1030
EJ's pocket presence was much better. That TD to shaw in the corner showed it. Knew when to tuck and run. Knew when to throw it away. But we'll see what he does when we play a higher caliber team.
Honestly, no. I think we did what we were expected to do which is to defeat a lesser opponent. Im not going to take that win and say we are ready for a BCS championship as bad as i would like too. Not drunk in koolaid yet. It took us too long to pull away from this team. We made a lot of mistakes which is normal for the beginning of the season and I feel that Jimbo will get those things corrected. However although the OL did a good job tonight im not sold yet. Our RBs look good. I cant say we are on the level of an Alabama or USC. I actually see Clemson giving us problems. Dont shoot just my personal opinion. Too many times have i seen us kill a lesser opponent at the beginning of the season and everyone says we are back to lose to a sorry WF or NCST.
So what were the final numbers on TFL and sacks? 20 TFL and 10 sacks? Germantor was a monster! Karlos Williams made a hell of pass break up! JWJ, Smiley,Pryor went beast mode and all of our WRs look sick!
