"Offensive" Output

My frustration with our offense almost makes me sick. I have to remind myself that this is just a sport, and nobody is stealing anything or dying from it. A look at the KenPom on our team...

FSU's Lawrence Dawsey named ACC Recruiter of the Year

15

Consider that we have on staff James Coley, who was involved with almost every top recruit who ended up choosing the Seminoles in 2010; Eddie Gran, who could sell a ketchup popsicle to a woman in white gloves; and Jimbo in his own right - and you realize FSU has the staff to continue its elite recruiting run. This staff, as is, has the goods to make a run at the #1 class every year.

NC State Loses 92-78; Baffling End-Of-Game Strategy

1

Why 8 possessions is better than 3: NCSU mails it in. If you don't follow scACChoops, do yourself a favor - chuck your 56.6K modem, join the 21st century, and start reading. Clearly advanced life-forms over there.

Chris Rix giving back

27

I found this really interesting. Chris definitely had his knucklehead moments on and off the field as an undergrad, but if the worse thing people can say about you is that you parked in a handicap spot - you're not doing too bad in my book. On a personal note, I think it is a huge sacrifice to go from broadcasting (which I think he was pretty decent at) to parachurch leader - especially financially (I'm pretty sure he fundraises his own salary, a common but difficult position) So I applaud him for taking a step in faith.

5 Things: 2010 Defensive Edition

58
  1. Brandon Jenkins' 13.5 sacks ties him for 3rd in all-time Seminole single season sacks with Everette Brown ('08) and Reinard Wilson ('96).
  2. Jenkins' 21.5 TFLs ties him for 3rd in all-time Seminole single season TFLs with Everette Brown ('08), just behind Darnell Dockett's 22 ('01) and first place Brodrick Bunkley's 25 ('05).
  3. Jenkins' 24.5 career TFLs (3 TFL in '09) puts him at 8th all-time between Corey Simon and Marvin Jones.
  4. FSU's 62 PBUs (Pass break ups) almost doubles their '09 total (32) and is 13 more than their previous 5-year high of 49 ('08).
  5. Greg Reid (14) and Xavier Rhodes (12) recorded the #1 and #2 most PBUs by a Seminole defender since the statistic has been made available ('06). Patrick Robinson (11) held the previous highest total ('09).

Summer Reading List: The Modern 3-4 Defense

9

Everything you wanted to know about the 3-4 defense. There's been a lot of talk nationally and on our board about the feasibility of going to a 3-4 defense. So here's an opportunity to do your homework and educate yourself on this scheme. When you're done reading the above link, check out the rest of Steve Nichols' (Mile High Report) series: A) Background read on DL gaps 2) 3-4 in modern day D) The Importance of being Nose Tackle iv) 3-4 positioning and blocking responsibilities *) Part 2 of iv's article ♂) 3-4 red-zone nuances

Gibbs/Trickett relationship... But Gibbs is even more than that. "In this league, there are offensive line coaches who just teach scheme and then there are offensive line coaches who just teach technique," Valero said. "The right ones are the ones who teach both. And Alex is one of those." One who has perfected his own blocking scheme. One who is not afraid to share what he knows with others. Like Rick Trickett, who incorporated Gibbs’ philosophy and fundamentals when he got to West Virginia in 2001. "Some people say they copied a little from here, a little from there," Trickett, now assistant head coach/offensive line coach at Florida State, once told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "I just did every damn thing he did there (in Denver)."

He has been around the block

This shouldn't have any effects upon UNC @ FSU later in the season. But he'll most likely be suspended for the 1st game against LSU. Bad for the ACC.

Unga tried to see if he could generate some political capital with the BYU administration by withdrawing from school a month or so ago, but he's been ruled out for the Fall 2010 season with a possible return starting Winter 2011.
