Saturday, September 10, 2005The Citadel-FSU
The Game: Florida State’s post-Miami, pre-Boston College cupcake is rare. As a matter of fact this is the first time since 1995 that FSU has played a 1-AA team (the last being Central Florida in their second to last year as a 1-AA). This was originally supposed to be the start of an FSU-Texas A&M series but both teams backed up due to scheduling conflicts.
The Players: I’m looking at three freshmen today for FSU. Quarterback Xavier Lee, running back Antone Smith and receiver Fred Rouse. Three freshman all of whom were the top-rated recruits at their position. FSU has several players with nagging injuries who will sit out the game.
The Numbers: 25 and 500. FSU’s goal is to get both quarterbacks at least 25 passes and for the offense to gain over 500 yards.
The Line: Silly rabbit, lines weren’t made for 1-AA games.
The Forecast: Pain.
The Pick: FSU 59, The Citadel 0.
