He is married to a cousin of mine that I don't see very often.
I saw him this past weekend at a funeral before and after.
He doesn't do message boards.
I will simply say that he is an avid fan and often sits in boxes with
various bigwigs including Eric Barron.
He doesn't like the boxes b/c he likes to watch the game and he says
many in the boxes are there to visit and make connections.
He's on a first name basis with Jimbo, Eric Barron and Randy Spetman to
name a few.
Here are a few nuggets I picked up from him.
1. Quite a few big donors with Jimbo's ear are not happy with the offense.
2. There will be a full time OC/playcaller within 2 years. Could be sooner.
3. He doesn't think it will be Coley, but I could tell that was more his opinion.
He spoke it with less conviction.
4. He believes EJ had 95% of what you look for in a QB, but that last 5%
as far and decision making at game speed wasn't quite there. IOW, our next QB under
Jimbo could be great.
5. Truly believes Eric Barron is the real deal. Likes him a lot.
6. Likes Randy Spetman as a man but believes he is in over his head. Believes a change
will happen w/i a couple of years.
I understand that none of this is earth shattering revelations.
The reason I posted these tidbits is b/c this came from what I consider to be an unimpeachable source.
Not that people on here don't know stuff, but as a fellow poster, I'm never quite sure what they know and when.
FSU Football. Making cool the new swag since 2013.
Thanks for the info. I know that its not much but these are the kind of posts I like to read.
Thanks for sharing hopefully No. 2 is this coming week but more of a Co-OC with collaboration in play calling. I really don't doubt Jimbo's play calling, he has bad moments but really what coach doesn't. I honest feel execution is a big chunk of the problem, all that will change with maturity.
Thanks for the info.

I'm not a fan of booster influence, but if it took them to wake him up, so be it.
Thanks for sharing the information
Pic of cousin?

If they are not happy with the offense, then they are dense. It may not be Oregon, but it's closer to that than UF by miles.
I've heard that not only are boosters unhappy with the way Jimbo's run the offense, but that prominant former players are as well. Take it for what it's worth.
So, someone doesn't agree with my assessment of Jimbo: that he's a good HC, a good CEO, that he's turned the program around and set a positive tone. But as an OC he is mediocre.
Fine. But why downvote me? Come on.
Your assessment is right on.
Y'all sweat the down vote crap on here like a bunch of school yard kids. Speak your mind, it's a message board and wear the down votes like a badge of honor.
You're right. I usually don't mind, but this one seemed strange. It's like downvoting someone for saying the earth is round.
DV for you,Cousin Levy!
Personally I agree 100% with your assessment.
Hopefully Fisher understands that his beloved IPF and other new bells and whistles come w/ a price. The lack of an IPF didn't keep FSU from the national championship gm. and until FSU is in the title game again the boosters are going to have a lot of power.
But it's not.
Correct. UF is in no hurry to build there IPF, form what a fiend has said. FSU is building a IPF, dorms, and spending 50 million on stadium improvements this year (college town will help too). People expect consistent success with that kind of spending.
I upvoted every post of your's, because some people just dont like hearing the truth. One thing I will add to this was his playcalling hancuffed with EJ at QB, and would we have been undefeated with Ponder as QB
