FSU laughs off rival Clemson, but will be without star wideout for 10 weeks.
The FSU Seminoles left Death Valley with a chip on their shoulder as they've turned a rivalry game into what appeared to be a BCS caliber team vs an FCS team. The 66-14 rout of Clemson marks the highest margin of victory in Coach Macc's tenure and is extremely impressive especially coming on the road. However, the team will play the majority of the regular season without star wide-out sophmore Marcus Johnson.
MJ88 as he's commonly referred to by teammates and media personelle was on his way to another stellar performance, stretching out just 4 catches for 120 yards and taking 2 to the house adding to his already Heisman-like season totals. (39 catches, 638 yards 9TDs through just 6 games) He has quite literally taken over this offense by storm since the beginning of the year, notching a personal best game against argueably the best team in the country Ohio State to the tune of 14 catches 259 yards and 3TDs.
Last season, behind the upperclass stud Chip Mitchell (current JR) Mitchell barely saw his numbers decrease despite sharing targets and catches with Marcus, Chip still totaled 75 catches 1557 yards and 20TDs. This year, Mitchell has seen his role decrease yet still managed to churn in the same average yards per catch (19.2). Johnson however came into spring camp this year with a full year of college experience behind him and really turned it on. Mitchell quite literally stepped back during press conferences and said that this is Marcus' team now without planting a single seed of doubt or biterness throughout the entire process.
Marcus went down in the 3rd quarter with what looked to be a knee injury off the bat. The coaching staff has come to expect thbeir mammoth 6'5 212 pound target to pop up from all sorts of impact tackles but this one he remained on the ground holding his knee.
"We knew it right away. It was a football play, not necessarily a big hit but the defender rolled over his knee hyper extending it and it's been called a Torn Hamstring. We're going to shut him down the rest of the regular season and hope he can make a full recovery for our bowl game" Coach Macc said.
Mitchell, a team captain will now be looked upon to handle a majority of the targets in the offense and JR Maurice Payne whose flashed signs of brilliance will have his role increased, as well as senior Luke King. The entire receiving corps will need to step up and fill the void left by one of the most feared pass-catchers in the country and thankfuly a dormant rushing attack has really come alive in the past few weeks.
This week the team had 225 yards rushing with 6 of their touchdowns coming on the ground, a season best for the Seminoles. Last week, the teams starting tailback churned in a 112 yard preformance against a stingy Heel run defense that kept him bottled until he exploded for a 95 yard run out of nowhere. This unit will certainly need to step up to help the team win games down the stretch and that's an expectation the young running back stable has been patiently waiting for.
"The pressure's on now, we have no choice we're going to need to be the focal point of this offense moving forward and thankfully we've got three capable guys who can get it done and an offensive line that's been paving the way for us. We all have different skill sets that can be effective against defenses and we are going to show that in these coming weeks," tailback Chris Fields said.
Fields has taken about 65% of the teams hand offs this year sharing the remainder with true freshmen Deon Moss and Reshad Moore. Moore serves as the teams return specialist and likely has allready wrapped up the end of the year Return Man fo the Year award with 4 touchdowns coming allready on those units. Moss is the better complete back with an outstanding acceleration and shiftiness through the line. Fields is a very straight line-speed, down hill running type of guy who likes to run through the tackles and breaks off big runs when he gets into open space. Moss creates the lanes with his shiftyness and one-cut style of running. The two create frustration for the opposition trying to defend both and can be tough to bring down. The talent is in the backfield and on the O-Line to have a dominant run game, it appears the gameplanning needs to be addressed in order to make this work. The passing offense has been FSU's bread and butter this whole time so it will be an interesting storyline moving forward keeping an eye on this unit.
While they appear to be down, they are not out. Chips will fall where they may - the team has just one-conference loss and would need to win out and see Notre Dame receive two conference losses to play in the ACC Championship, but a top 10 rakning heading into bowl season is a terrific possibility and the team could receive and at Large bid to play in a BCS game. All eyes are focused on Coach Ransom (CJTHA1 ) and the state rivalry game in week 14, where there could be a lot on the line with the presently undefeated Gators.
Sounds good. Does 8:30pm est today sounds good to you
Michigan D Smothers IllinoisWolverines improve to .500
Senior HB Loren Pearson scored twice and the Michigan defense played well all day forcing 4 turnovers and almost pitching a shutout. The Wolverines took an early 7-0 lead in the 1st off of Pearson's first score from 5 yards out, but both defenses played well the rest of the half to keep it scoreless until Michigan junior MLB Robert Miller returned an INT 39 yards to make it 13-0 heading into the locker room. Michigan added two more touchdowns in the 2nd Half, but really didn't need anymore points as the defense held the Illini to 0/10 on 3rd Down and just kept coming up with big plays. Illinois did finally get on the board early in the 4th on a 21-yard TD from Frederick to WR Kyle Winston. Next, Michigan hopes to keep the winning streak going on the road at Rutgers. IllinoisQB Marvin Frederick - 15/24, 120 YDS, TD, 4 INTHB Brad Walker - 11 RUSH, 41 YDS, 4 REC, 17 YDSWR Kyle Winston - 4 REC, 45 YDS, TDMLB Lawrence Bradford - 6 TKLS, INT MichiganQB Nick Butler - 13/20, 203 YDS, TD, INTHB Loren Pearson - 25 RUSH, 81 YDS, 2 TD, 2 REC, 19 YDSWR Richard Robinson - 4 REC, 78 YDS, TDCB Mike Tidwell - TKL, 2 INT
Yeah I lost to Michigan State, I lost my FR WR to an injury in the 1st half then lost my qb to an injury in the middle of the 3rd qtr. Both just out for the game, this game was one of those that the cpu just goes nuts. My ovr 98 CB (99 MCV, 99 ZCV, 99 press) was getting beat in all coverages by States ovr 82 WR. Needless to say im a little irritated at this game atm.
I've had a few games like that when the CPU seems to go in beast mode. My Maryland game was kind of like that, but thankfully my starting QB was back and I basically just had to outscore them.
SOONERS RELY ON SPECIAL TEAMS
In a sloppy game that was tarnished by rain, the Sooners had to rely on their defense and special teams to put points on the board before beating the Bulldogs, 49-28. The beginning of the game did not go as anyone planned, as the Sooners watched SR QB Brent Price throw three first quarter interceptions, the first which resulted in the Bulldogs getting the ball in their red zone. Mississippi State did a great job of game planning against the Sooners, as it took a while for Price and the offensive coordinator to figure out what plays to call against the mix and match coverage design. After going down 7-0 early, KR Randy Bain took momentum in to his own hands and took the ball back 96 yards to tie the game at 7-7. The defense stood tall in the first, atoning for Price's mishaps, and when the second quarter rolled around, the Sooner offense finally figured it out. The Sooners ultimately won the game in the second quarter, outscoring the Bulldogs 21-7 on two touchdown passes and an intercepted option pitch which fourth string CB Marvin Waters took back for six. The Sooners exerted their physical dominance for the rest of the game, running between the tackles with Sylvester Armstrong, while also going over the top for a bomb td to Bobby Burley on his only catch of the day. The Sooners ran clock for most of the fourth quarter, and except for a garbage time touchdown with 1:32 left in the game, the day belonged to the Sooners.
Next week, the Sooners face their first legitimate test as Bama (jandy) comes to Norman. Should be a great one.
Chin up brother, absolute BS that happened.... sometimes it doesnt matter the ratings or play calling they get their yards.... and rightfully so because even the best corners in college get beat SOMETIMES but when it feels like it's every play it's annoying I'm well aware of those games. The game doesn't have enough intelligence to encorporate a defender slipping, losing his footing or misplaying a ball because even the best corners have plays like this but if it's every play it's downright annoying. If they don't fix the #1 issue in this game for 14 I will be very upset and it's the momentum factor... it's farrrr too potent and makes it unplayable at times. I of course didn't see how this all went down and don't know your pain in this game persay, but I'd hate to see anyone lose interest esp when you're expecting a few 5star recruits next year.... chin up Chess!!!!
