I agree but EJ's strength is running the ball and he is far too fragile to run a lot
Jimbo knows that and knows that his backup Clint isn't somebody you can really win with week in and week out at this level despite what this fan base thinks of his " knowledge of the playbook "
The facts are Clint has played meaningful snaps in 3 games, and FSU lost all 3 as he got benched at halftime in the 3rd game
Jimbo did the best he could with a handicapped QB
This offense is gonna explode next year imo, so many people in this fan base aren't ready for how good Coker is
I don't know if they would be all that much better. Miami and the passing game were superb this. The defense is horrendous.
Please explain what is complex about the 2012 FSU passing offense.
It's called coaching... As he stated he took what the defense gave him, and it showed. UF is not good at all and we should have beat them by 20 at less. JMHO
Yes. Because we're terrible. Better give up on FSU now and don't come back.
So Jimbo is not a good QB coach?
Say wut ?
I saw the opposite. Bridgewater was hitting very tight holes with very precise passes, not easy check downs.
tlhg, I understand the schemes and their conduciveness to certain statistical outputs, etc. My point still stands. EJ is PATHETIC pre-snap and panicks under pressure. Bridgewater is much better at those two things.
Hey guys. Cane fan here. Chris brought up a pretty good question. It would have been great to get Teddy here, but that means we would still have Shannon. The truth of it all is that RS could not develop talent nor could he hire a coaching staff that could do it either. I think Teddy would probably ended up a mediocre QB just like Jacory. I also think the "fair weather fans" we have down here would have turned on Teddy also.
In response to Nee's comment, I don't think Miami will ever switch to a spread offense like TB ran in high school. Just not part of the philosophy down here. And as you mentioned, fsukum, Miami's offense wasn't really the problem this year.
I am not soft. louisville is in NIU's class. Last night changes nothing about that fact.
The fact i think we would have beat Louisville has nothing to do with the fact we screwed up numerous times in the red zone in the orange bowl.
Lousiville really sucks on defense. most importantly, Louisville did not beat itself like we did against uf.
Loiusville barely beat a terrible FIU team and lost to a poor uconn team.
They were far better coached last night than we were in the uf game. That includes defensive coaching. I would love to find out why Stoops did not put los in the box as soon as the extra ol's went in for uf.
Maybe now some of you see the golden opportunity that was blown by FSU this year in playing for a mnc.
lastly, last night showed uf is not nearly as deep as we are on defense. for example, they do not have 4 guys that can cover in man.
Uf was a house of cards. If you do not beat yourself they are not good enough to beat you.

NIU has a sugar bowl championship, an orange bowl championship, and a fiesta bowl championship?
Learn something new every day...
Teddy was throwing some absolute darts last year.
And the same opportunities that were available in the game last night, were available in our game. They schemed WR's open just like we did. Their WR's beat UF's DB's just like ours did.
Teddy did a great job of hitting the open man and not repeatedly giving the ball to the other team. We did not.
Simple as that really.
They were able to run late in the game because the UF defense was tired, being that they had been on the field a lot and have had depth issues. They weren't repeated bailed out by the other team w/ quick drives. They were also hit by some of the quick trap plays that we ran in that game w/ some success.

After seeing him play the past 2 years, i want to know how and why both analysts and teams around the country(mostly UM) thought he couldn't play QB. The dude throws an amazing ball and has some serious skillz.
army has numerous nc's. i think we would have beaten them as well. What happened in the past (fiesta bowl 20 years ago_) has nothing to do with 2012 Louisville.
You point literally, has no merit whatsoever. Lousiville is better than NIU because they won the fiesta bowl 20 years ago and the orange bowl 6 years ago?
That is quite a logic professor you have got there.
Thank goodness we didn't play Duke: they had the "rock wall" defense in 1939. Oh wait, we did play them and we pounded them despite the fact they had a great defense 63 years ago.
If you want to take a shot a me fine, but i am going to make you earn it. and you, my friend, did not earn it.
This is how you figure out which one is better:
Which team would have been favored by Vegas and by how many points?
My conclusion is Louisville by 2-3 points. a team that bearly beats FIu and loses to uconn will not be heavily favored against the MAc champs. They would have been favored becuase they are a bigger name and therfore money would have flowed their way pushing the line by a point or 2.

Agree with this post. Teddy is simply a different breed as it pertains to any comparison with EJ. Great feel in the pocket, compact footwork that allows him to slide and deliver from different release points. UL line gave up a fair amount of pressure and Teddy was able to deliver the ball accurately under duress. Great ball placement on those sideline throws as well

What makes you think we don't know we should have been playing for a NC? That's lame assumption.
Bridgewater is a stud QB, but that team is a result of Charlie Strong. Their D stuffed UF with half of the size/talent of ours.
Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or it may last a year. But eventually, it will subside. If i quit, however it will last forever.
as to you because of your stupid posts in several threads.
As to others, i have no idea what they think.
You're ignorant to no avail. Just because we could have been playing for a NC doesn't mean we have to be miserable aholes like you. We can enjoy hwat this team has accomplished, despite consideerable injuries, and some questionable coaching decisions.
Bottom line is you're the worst type of fan if you can't enjoy the team unless theyre perfect.
Nobody is taking shots at anyone. Take a breath.
You can type whatever you like - the assertion that UofL is in NIU's class is laughable... even absurd. Honestly, I shouldn't have to make an argument against it.
If you don't want to go back 20 years then thats fine.
Fact of the matter is we have been in a BCS conference since 2004. We have multiple conference titles in that time, as well as two BCS bowl victories. We have beaten numerous top 10 teams. We have had numerous 10 win seasons. Coincidentally, we have also beaten Miami, Florida, and FSU the last time we played them. Yes, we may have done it in the weakest BCS conference (which is up for debate) but our accomplishments are significant. To say we are in NIU's class shows that either you have an ax to grind against louisville, or perhaps you simply may not know very much about us. I'm going with the latter. Its not your fault. Alot of fans of the tradition rich programs don't really take notice of the new guy until many years after his arrival.
Great run fits, LB's ready to take on blocks sell out in the run game + an early deficit played right into UL's hands. Their DLalso did a good job of not letting the UF OL conquer the LOS every snap
Enjoyment is out of the question here. We have to suffer or else we're not being diligent fans.
He wasn't a Randy Shannon whiff. He was an Al Golden whiff.
