Had a chance to listen to and meet some of the new FSU Defensive Coaches.
Pruitt is VERY personable and I see why he's a great recruiter. He's very knowledgeable. He's definitely a Nick Saban disciple.
Kelly.....technician. Again very personable. Really believes in fundamentals.
Sunseri.....is like Tony Soprano. You see why he relates well to kids and has been a coach in the League.
Expect FSU to run a lot of the same defensive schemes that Alabama does especially in coverage. The LB's will be asked to be in coverage and they will know how to cover. Expect FSU to bring A LOT of PRESSURE! Jimbo and Pruitt both spoke about that. They will defend the middle of the field first.
-University School in South Florida are not fans of Jimbo. One coach said (F*** Jimbo) when asked if they were going to stay and listen to him. They all left after James Franklin spoke.
-University School and Miami Central will not be eating dinner together as a staff. There is no love lost there.
-James Franklin is a good guy and heck of a coach. He is responsible for many big time QB's. Really transformed Vandy. Their best season since 1915.
Lol, thanks! Very informative. Probably has to do with us jettisoning Marquedius Bain.
Great stuff here.
Can't wait to see the new defense. We have the athletes now create some havoc. A few timely turnovers and we'd have been undefeated last year. Big plays defensively and we can be more conservative on offense until Jimbo gets comfy with the QB situation.
On University School, I'm assuming its because we cut ties with Bain and wouldn't accept Cunningham commitment.

Thanks for the tidbits on the new coaches. I can't wait to see how our LBs perform next year. Only thing I have a major problem with is I keep hearing South FL coaches not liking Jimbo. Why? Look at all the guys that came from South FL on our team. They all are doing well, either graduating and/or getting drafted. Jimbo does right by them. If it were my son, I would not hesitate to let him play all the way at FSU BECAUSE I know Jimbo would take care of him.
Deserve got nothing to do with it...
South Florida coaches don't like coaches who won't entertain their clownish habits and take their scrubs.
Sorry, FSU isn't going to take scrubs to gain the favor of random coaches. The marginal kids they take will be used to do that, but simply not going to take a random kid if there's no desirable teammate.
Bain is a project who regressed as a senior. LSU took a bit of a flyer based on potential.
FSU Ambassador to the masses
This is the first instance of a school not liking Fisher.
I have no problem with it either. There are some schools with very immature head coaches and we don't need to deal with that.
Just want to add the HC was not one of the ones talking. He seems like a nice guy.

Wasn't he the one that because of grades went with Marshall??
Did we ever pull johnson scholarship?
No, from my understanding, there were conversations with Ice Harris, our coaches, Johnson and his family regarding the fact that he was not going to qualify at the end. He went to Marshall for that reason. Marshall can accept partial-qualifiers.
If that's true Jimbo has to come across as a guy, you can trust and that will look out for a kid.
Agree seems like we were straight shooters an Ice has to like that
With HS coaches you have to always be interested in the long play especially certain miami schools.
