Florida State 2014 CPU Game Summaries AT Oregon (0-0) at #6 Florida State (0-0) Seminoles Notch First Win, Infuriate Coach August 30th, 2014 TALLAHASSEE -- You would think that a coach in his first full season would take a win against a respectable team from a major conference for his first game, and be happy about it. Meet Coach Merih; "Honestly, that's not how I wanted to come out this season offensively. I'm mad at myself for giving Bostic that many (23) attempts in his first game. He did some good things, don't get me wrong. But his accuracy...well it was sorely lacking. We need to work with him on good footwork and have a better release point." The aforemention David Bostic went 9 of 23 for 161 yards, a touchdown, and 3 interceptions. "When our defense was playing as lights out as it was, forcing turnovers, scoring off of run backs, and holding them to - what was it - negative 2 yards rushing. I mean, it doesn't get much better than that." Oregon did well to avoid the monsoon of momentum that had the 'Noles up 17 to nothing early into the second quarter. They were keyed by a career passing day from Howell (342 yards). "Now, the kid got his yards, but when you look at how they threw it 42 times, I'd grade that out as a win every single time. The 4 interceptions we caused helped us out immensely. I've got to get that kid Will Brown the ball more often." Brown, a senior, had 155 yards on 29 carries, and scored three touchdowns (1 receiving). The Seminole rushing attack did have a statement Coach Merih game, rushing for 210 yards. "We'll take it as a lesson learned. We have a bye week before we take on Boston College. We need this extra week to further repair our quarterback situation." When asked if his eyes are beginning to peal towards the game in week 4 against defending National Champion Georgia Tech, Coach Merih had this to say: "I know people in Tallahassee are anxious for that game, but my job is to focus on the task at hand. I'm anxious to go and get some work in, so if you boy's will excuse me." Whether Coach Merih knows it or not (chances are he does) people are looking to the Georgia Tech game as an early defining moment in his career. One thing is for certain, in that game he won't be able to survive with a performance like the one he got out of his quarterback today.
