Week 6 Aftermath

Noooo-ooooohhh-oh-oh-ohhhhh… Noooo-oh-ohhhh… No-oh-ohhh….

The GT/FSU was a crusher… FSU seems to come up with new ways to snatch defeat from the mouth of victory…. WHOEVER made the decision to punt on the 4th & 3 in the 3rd quarter… Well, it was a poor decision. I’m not a coach, but when your defense has not stopped the opposing offense all night, punting the ball is a really stupid decision. Tech was 8 for 10 on 3rd down and the 2 that they missed they just went for it on 4th down and made both of those… And the WAY that GT was scoring… Geez, DON”T PUNT THE BALL!

I know a lot of other mistakes, decisions and double fumbles will be pointed to as the keys to losing, but IMHO, it was the decision to punt. GT was not stopping FSU either. To think that FSU sored 44 and lost the game is pretty mindboggling.

The Bobby Bowden critics… No, not critics. The snarling-lack of respect-winning matters more than character and loyalty-losers sadly will be coming out of the woodwork now. Saint Bobby has earned the right to leave when he wants to. I do hope that he’ll be back for one more. Next year’s team barring injury, should be the one that finally gets FSU back to their winning ways: Ponder will be a senior, and will have most of their offense intact and the defense.. well, they’ll be a year older, not, to mention the changeover for their opponents will benefit FSU.. No more Tebow if nothing else (does that tip my hand on my feelings about this year’s UF game?).

On to the scores. I don’t even know how I did. Evil FSU Hatin’ Heather Dinich may have caught me in the picks. Earlier in the college season, I noted that her disdain for FSU would give me an advantage in the picks, but it may be my inability to pick against FSU will be my downfall.

My Totals coming in:82-22 in Top 25 Picks. 26-11 in ‘Other Notable Games’. Against Evil FSU Hatin’ ACC Blogger Heather Dinich (in ACC picks) I am 31-14 to her 30-15 record. AND I’m 0-5 vs ‘the gut’.
