What if that FSU player called you?

So, about a week ago I received a call from an FSU football player. I hadn't renewed my booster membership yet (I''m lazy), so the call was to remind me (successfully) to do so. I enjoyed the call...

2013 NFL Draft Breakdown by College

I couldn't easily find an overall breakdown by college (i.e. which college teams were the first to reach 2, 3, 4, etc. players drafted), so I made one. Here is the sheet So, which team had the...

24.1: Value, in equivalent points, of the five turnovers Florida State committed in their 35-30 loss to Wake Forest. The Seminoles lost their third consecutive game, thanks mostly to their own mistakes and their inability to generate any momentum through the air when they fell behind. FSU quarterbacks E.J. Manuel and Clint Trickett combined to complete 25 of 46 passes for 315 yards, but they threw four interceptions and got sacked twice in the process. (Major credit goes to Wake cornerback Merrill Noel. The redshirt freshman made 7.5 tackles, picked off a pass, and broke up three other passes.) Wake did manage 391 yards of offense, but they would not have scored the requisite points without FSU's own random bouts with ineptitude.

Fisher's explanation for initially sitting EJ against Wake. A lot of people have criticized this decision; but, while it still might have been wrong, Jimbo's explanation makes sense. No use in losing EJ for up to 6 weeks (rest of season besides UF) if he gets hit. Also, no telling how it would have affected his throwing motion (and Jimbo suggests one of EJ's INTs was a result of the injury). Per chopping block - see other post game videos

Oregon may be in serious trouble

3

In response to recent questions concerning Oregon's $25,000 payment to Will Lyles in February 2010 for 2011 recruiting info, Oregon released materials it supposedly received from Lyles. Why is this a big deal? Because the materials contain almost exclusively players that graduated in 2009. To further substantiate the shadiness, Lyles has been accused of being a street agent in the past, the purchase of materials came not long after Oregon signed 2 recruits whom Lyles supposedly advised, there appear to have been a large number of phone calls between Lyles and Oregon (more than one would expect from a purchase of recruiting information), and there are questions regarding Lyles' service's compliance with NCAA regulation 13.14.3 (e.g. his website, which appears to have stolen this website, allegedly did not offer prices until after people started digging in March). Also, the materials released by Oregon have titles that read "Player Profiles 2011" (except page 25, which has a 2009 title), so somebody consciously tried to sell 2009 recruits as 2011 recruits.

Strength of Schedule in the BCS

The best way to structure an out-of-conference opponent slate is commonly debated. Recently, with the release of the ACC schedules, I have noticed an abundance of comments discussing the BCS...

Goodman playing with first team in San Diego

7

With Malcom Floyd, Legedu Naanee, and Buster Davis all missing practice Thursday with injuries, Goodman was getting reps with the first team. Floyd and Naanee will likely sit out Sunday's game against NE, so it looks like we will see Patrick Crayton and an injured Buster Davis as the #1 and #2 receivers, with Goodman the #3. He has yet to have an NFL reception, so keep a look out on Sunday for his first ever. Also worth noting that Antonio Gates is injured (and has yet to practice this week). Gates might still play, but one would expect even more passes to the WRs if he is hurting.
