Well I was wrong…FSU wasn’t concerned enough with State to modify their offense at all. The bright points were few….but there were a few nice surprises.
– Jamelle Eugene: 14 carries for 101 yards against the nation’s 10th best rushing defense (which is only good enough for third place in the conference).
– The State defense did a good job overall and held FSU to 124 yards rushing. That either says something nice about State’sdefense….or something horribly bad about FSU rushing ability.
– The officials made some absolutely horrible calls….but it wouldn’t have changed the outcome of the game.
– State had 129 yards of offense in the first quarter; but only 139 yards for the remainder of the game. Once FSU made some adjustments, State simply didn’t have anything left to try.
– And more turnovers…
