you guys are idiots. stop being so doubtful of our leader. jimbo fisher is here to stay. he is our new version of bobby bowden. he is the guy who is going to lead us back to greatness. it is unfair to think that we were going to go to the national championship before we had even won an acc championship game. you must walk before you can run. if he hires an OC then next year we are golden. please stop being ridiculous to a guy who is the future of FSU. being a florida state fan is about loving what florida state stands for, not who our coach is. he is here to stay. get used to it. otherwise start liking another team and quit complaining
Looking forward to post #10
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.
IF HE HIRES AN OC FOR NEXT YEAR WE ARE GOLDEN. That is like saying, "If the government stops spending 40% more money than it is taking in, then we are golden. Not a chance either is going to happen.
As to being here to stay, according to his agent he is up for every job on America. He really isn't up for any but he wants us to think he is wanted by all others.
I like the passion. i really do. But you have got to earn it.
I upvoted you, but you'll get slammed because many of our fans are self loathing defeatists (also because you called people idiots).
Maybe jimbo is the guy for us. maybe not. There isn't jack we can do about it either way. Why not enjoy the ride as best we can?

I stopped at "idiots".
This may not be the best way to endear yourself to your new friends on the site.

I stopped when I saw the post count.
OP just trying to get the lowest star rating possible. Here, I will help you out...
So...on the off chance we do get Jimbo to come to UT(I'm not saying we can, we are, or even that I want us to), do you guys mind telling me why you hate him so much? I'm genuinely curious.
play calling, and I personally hate his name.
No one hates him personally. He's a great representative of Florida State.
Most of our issues have to do with his questionable play calling and overall offensive strategy. He'll call 10 great plays and then 3 or 4 will just make you scratch your head.
Would you characterize him as a great recruiter, or do you think the talent level at FSU is mostly due to it being FSU?
Also, has this defense been good his whole tenure, or did Stoops "fix" it?
He's supposedly a very good recruiter, but who knows whether that's him or just FSU's reputation/the state of Florida players.
Mickey Andrews's defense was failing. Stoops has fixed it for the most part.
Jimbo may be a good coach, he is not elite. Urban took OSU from 6-7 to 12-0. How long did it take Saban? With the talent he has we should not look the way we do. 11-2 is great, but it is the most underwhelming 11-2 team I've seen. We play not to lose every game, no killer instinct in this offense. I'm happy for the players and to be ACC champs, but lets face it, the ACC sucks. If we moved to the SEC we'd be a middling 8-4, 7-5.
I hope we take steps forward this offseason, and hope we beat whoever in the OB.
Earn it like win the ACC championship for the first time in 7 years????
No, you are a jerk. Quit the name calling. You are the miserable person that can't appreciate an ACC championship.
Agree with this.
2% of the fan base is pretty miserable. Most everyone else is pretty happy. Talk to normal fans, not so much people on here.
Because they know nothing and have never been athletes. Their expectations are so high no one can possibly reach them. I would like Jimbo to be more aggressive myself, but bottom line we are ACC champs for the first time in 7 years. I mean they won the game, and people are complaining. They think that recruiting good players means a national championship. They forget how average we were for the last 4 years under Bowden and think that it is normal for teams to be top 5 all the time. In short, they know nothing about college football or athletics or have lost their ability to see the obvious. Me, I am very proud of the kids and look forward to a bowl victory. Oh, and of course look forward to next year's team.
This isn't North Korea and Jimbo isn't Kim Jong-Il (or Un is the new "Great Leader" I suppose).
So I'm going to call him out when I think he's off. I'll put it this way. I do think we had the personnel to do a lot more than we did this year. That being said, I am very proud of where he has taken our program, especially in comparison to past years.
Explain to me fsufool, what exactly does an ACC chamionship mean? It may have meant something back in the day but what does it mean this year. We beat a 6-6 team, by 6 pts . . . I'm going to stop there. What does a championship in the worst damn conference in the country REALLY mean?
"I never knew I had a foot until I noticed it was on your neck"
FYI, we're still average.
perfectly stated. If we were any good at all we score 1 fking point in the second half against a piss poor defense. What else do you need to see? With the talent on this team there is no excuse. Done with Jimbo.
The ACC is not the worst conference in the country. And a conference championship is exactly that. It's what you work for. Please explain your expectations. How you got them and why you feel the right to call out our team after winning the ACC? This really makes me wonder about the people on this blog when I know there are maybe 4 or 5 that actually have an athletic history that includes anything close to what these kids have accomplished. I am proud of these kids and their accomplishment and refuse to call them out because I know how hard it is to accomplish what they have accomplished. Funny, someone posted that they were embarrassed about the team. How can anyone that is not directly involved be embarrassed? What kinda of psychological issues does a person have that is embarrassed about a college football team that they are not playing on or coaching? How does a fan have such high expectations that a conference victory isn't good enough? Time to find a new hobby IMO.
