It would take Jesus Christ at least two seasons at FSU to have a winning team.

"I talked to God because I knew he'd understand. He said stick by me I'll be your guiding hand. But don't ask me what I think of FSU because I might not give you the answer that you want me want me to." Apparently, Jesus doesn't want the job, he has his hands full with those of us at Canespace?

you can't spell "title" without "tit", and this title of yours, soup, is like cleavage: it immediately grabs one's attention! ("one" meaning, the majority of canespace readers)

and i give you credit for making the rest of the blog body live up to the initial eye candy!

Canes redshirt freshman defensive end Greg Rousseau was named the Walter Camp National Defensive Player of the Week on Sunday after amassing four sacks and five tackles for loss in the win over FSU. Rousseau had eight total tackles and helped lead a UM defense that had a season-high 16 tackles for loss and nine sacks. Including the sacks, the Canes held FSU to 31 rushing yards.

Oh silly blobber, you forgot, concern trolls have a very narrow range of concerns they can troll about, lest they spread their concern trolling too wide and give up the game plan about why they're 'here' in the first place. Like at the end of the blob a few blobs ago where the mask slipped because GD got blown out, for example.

Fake Lames needs to take notes as just because you're in a better position still than an irrelevant program spiraling down the toilet pipe, it doesn't mean shit unless you keep winning.

FSU player refuses to dress out against Miami and goes on strike against Taggert

FSU WR Warren Thompson's mother blasts Willie Taggart in note

The aftermath of Florida State's weekend decision to fire Willie Taggart following Saturday's loss at Miami is wide-reaching, including one detailed diatribe from Cherokee Grace-Thompson, the mother of Seminoles wide receiver Warren Thompson.

Taggart flipped Thompson to Florida State from Oregon in January 2018 after initially scouting the talented pass-catcher from Seffner, Florida, during his time at USF. Thompson's mother expressed distrust with Taggart — notably with a redshirt season — in a lengthy Facebook note posted on Monday, a day after his firing.

*Warning* This post contains material that may not be suitable for younger audiences.


"Dear, Coach Taggart....How you Treated my son was completely & utterly INSANE He was your Number 1 Recruit & made headlines with you," Grace-Thompson posted on the social media platform. "Topped charts with Warrenj signature & mine in the 2018 recruitment-stats And then, you all got to FSU 1st qtr The NIGHTMARE BEGAN and it didn’t stop!! Warrenj Red Shirted himself not Taggart right after the Miami game 2018. Taggart & I had it out about that (All season) 2nd season the NIGHTMARE begins again-now it’s increasingly unbearable by 10-26 Coach Dugans called and said Warrenj refused to dress out."

Grace-Thompson says Florida State's staff told her that her soon "quit football," so like any mother would do, she made the trip to campus.


"I drop everything- immediately go to my son’s aide. And once I got to Tallahassee. My son said this: Im refusing to dress under him anymore, & I’m on Strike...He said I will not go back to Football until he is FIRED Momma," Grace-Thompson wrote. "I’m saying to myself- Warrenj is really tripping right now & flipped out So I said ok. I’m not here to pressure you just wanting to support your decision-Son I had 4 meetings last week At FSU & one was with Coach T & Warrenj refused to attend all 4 meetings & still refused to dress for this pass- Miami game that ended with a loss & Coach Taggart firing.

"I said to Coach T last night in a text: YOU TREATED MY SON LIKE S*** and he said...I still Love Warren."


Grace-Thompson didn't accept Taggart's response to her text message.

"No I Love Warrenj & the Other Boys you consistently lied to," she wrote. "You said no more favoritism- nothing but the Best Players- you made every excuse not to do this and now look- Coach Taggart you let everybody Down!!!! I met with him 6 days b4 his firing. In his Big Beautiful office & he was still LYING Kool & Smiling GOOD BYE TAGGART.

I think FSU will end up with one of the Stoops boys (Bob or Mark). Lane Kiffin will be in the running as well.

I want this to happen so badly, so it won't. However just for fun, he's got Butch's FIU at home this week in Boca, a winnable road game against San Antonio and a tough home game against Southern Miss to end the year. Marshal owns the head to head tiebreaker as they're both tied with a 4-1 conference record right now.

He's going to find a way to fail back upwards again eventually and him doing so while STILL not winning even his division would be the funniest coaching search outcome since Fake Lames bungled two of them in a row at Miami.

We had a lot of momentum going into the GT game as well. If the Canes come out and take care of business and run the table, then I will give CMD and this staff some credit for keeping the team together and moving them toward success after a 3-4 start.

IMHO, CMD and this staff are still learning on the job, but they did get the Canes to play their best two back-to-back road games since 2017, so right now, I rank CMD above Taggart and in the Al Golden territory as far as my coaching scale is concerned.

The Canes did lose at home to VT and GT and had an underwhelming performance against Central Michigan, but has since won two solid back-to-back road games against Pitt and an underwhelming FSU team.

A win against Louisville at home (following two road victories where the Canes were underdogs), and a win where the Canes are favored, would go a long way and I would then move his ranking slightly ahead of Golden. Running the table puts him comfortably ahead of Golden and closer into the CMR territory.

IMO, after next season (after CMD's recruiting haul and his final record in year two), we will have a better assessment of what kind of coach CMD will be. After 15 years of disappointment, I will be in a "wait and see" mode before I pronounce CMD as the guy to lift this program.
