    Why would you spread such treacherous libel against the team in your "fan of" section?

    lorida State’s disappointing 2018 season came to an end on Saturday with a 41-14 loss to Florida. The five win Seminoles missed a bowl game for the first time in 36 years and now the offseason begins. The Willie Taggart Era didn’t get off to the start anyone around the program expected.


    Does this mean changes are coming?


    I still expect changes to occur among the coaching staff, but nothing will likely happen in the short-term. A source tells me that Willie Taggart plans to take this week to meet with each player on the roster one-by-one. Although the team has improved the overall culture, there are still some holdouts that haven’t bought in yet. Taggart plans to give them the opportunity to either buy-in now or move on.


    After meeting with his players, Taggart is expected to sit down with his coaching staff one-by-one as well. There has been no decision on what changes will be made yet, Taggart plans to take some time and evaluate all aspects of his staff before doing so. We’re hearing these meetings with his coaches likely won’t happen this week and probably won’t happen before the early Signing Period on Dec. 19. FSU is putting a priority on recruiting right now and the entire staff is already out on the recruiting trail.Fixing the glaring weaknesses on this team are essential after one of the worst seasons in the modern era of FSU football. Which is why I expect coaching changes will take a back seat to recruiting in the short-term.


    2017 was the first year the NCAA introduced the early signing period in December. We saw the new signing period have an impact on the coaching carousel. One of the trends that emerged was that head coaches generally waited until the December dead period began to make changes to their staffs. It makes sense for FSU to wait as well because a coaching shakeup could impact recruiting.

    Making a change now means you’ll likely be down a coach on the recruiting trail until after the early signing period. Recruiting is vitally important to FSU this year and a coaching change could have a negative impact in the days leading up to signing day. It’s unlikely FSU would want to make a quick hire because most coaching change around the country won’t occur until the dead period and there will be a bigger pool of available coaches to choose from. All of this leads me to believe we won't see any changes to FSU's staff until after early signing day and possibly after February's signing period as well.

    I’m sure the coach’s team who has no discipline will take him seriously.

    I haven't followed recruiting closely in a while, but looking at this year's class, am I wrong to say we are doing good but not great? I expected to see us in on a lot of the uncommitted top 100 recruits, but I'm not really finding that. Adding insult to injury is losing Thibodeaux, who was a lock at one point, to Oregon. And we don't seem to have a ton of OL interest.

    Am I complaining about known issues here? I assume I am. I thought recruiting was Willie's strong point.

    Lamar didnt play

    thompson a few snaps but redshirt eligible. did nothing of note

    Treshaun Harrison- looked VERY explosive and then we stopped using him for 6 weeks. May have been an injury. His lack of usage midseason was either maturity or injury. I think he has a big time future though

    bolden- exceeded my expectations and looked really good early in the year. Got hurt game 2 or 3 and was out for the year so redshirted. I wasnt that high on him when he committed to us before flipping to oregon and didnt care much when we got him again but I was wrong. Think he has a bright future

    Mckitty has good playmaking ability. Last 4-6 weeks he just stopped tracking the ball. Saw someone hint he might be feeling effects of a concussion. Looked pretty bad last 1/3 or so of the year but he flashed early. Still feels like a guy capable of more than we have seen from him.

    We've taken a step back in everything, just have to accept it. Willie is a decent recruiter but he's no Jimbo.

    Lamar is fat. Wasn’t expected to contribute. I wish we would switch him to OL where he’s allowed to be kind of fat and we need help desperately. Haven’t heard anything on him.

    Thompson and his parents have said a few things on social media. Who knows. Obviously our season ended poorly and things are being said on social media that would have likely been said previously in a more private setting.

    That’s correct. The coach FSU hired — who had a career losing record — continued that trend with a 5-7 campaign in his first year at the helm in Tallahassee. HTH.

    McKitty can block. Unfortunately, he likes to stand there and flex and pose after he makes his block.
