#1. If he can stay eligible, DVo. If not, Ponder.

#2. No. I'll believe we can run the ball when I see it. Also, if he can rush over or at least 1,000 yds, were gonna win more than 8 games.

#3. Gregg Carr.

#4. Nicholson

#5. Going out on a limb here.... MYRON ROLLE. He's gonna just bust it out (homer in me). Rationale me says Robinson.

#6. Clemson. They're due for a beat down... and its at Doak. I believe when we play V-tech we'll be ranked, and they won't be...so, they can't really upset us.

#7. Maryland. AS reasons stated previously.

#8. NC State. My high school could beat NCstate. Horrible.

#9. Yes. Preston is just far too talented not to spring one. He will. Mark it down, write it on the wall, get it tattoo'd in your brain... its happening.

#10. I foresee 9 regular wins.

#11. Orange Bowl 3dGrin

but, honestly, i foresee the Gator bowl.

#12. No. Bobby will not retire this year.

Which quarterback will start the most games this season?
D'Vo

Will FSU have a 1,000 yard rusher?
yep Antone Smith

Which wide receiver will score the most touchdowns?
Corey Surrency 9 TDs

Which defensive player will lead FSU in tackles?
Nigel Bradham i hope but most likely Derek Nicholson

Which defender will rack up the most interceptions?
i say Carter because teams will be staying away from P-Rob
The Seminole defense finished with 29 sacks in 2007. Will the sack number be higher, lower or the same in 2008?
yep with the freakish DE rotaion we have how could it not plus it doesnt hurt that we have two of the strongest players in the nation manning the interior after game 3

Will FSU finish in the top or bottom half of the ACC in rushing?
top i say behind GT, Clem, Wake, Miami...so 5th

Which opponent on the schedule is FSU most likely to upset?
if miami is favored then them but i think wake will be(due to starters being out) so i'll give them the nod

Which opponent on the schedule will most likely upset FSU?
i will say we dont lose any we are favored in but most likley to upset us is probably GT with the good defence and crazy new offence

Name three underclassmen that will most likely declare for the NFL following the season. Myron Rolle(coaches already treating him like a senior) P-rob (4.2 speed and proven playmaker) Everette Brown (freak)

Which conference road game are you most confident about FSU chances (Miami, NC State, Ga. Tech or Maryland)? NCST did you watch the game last thursday? Their Offence looked HORRIBLE

FSU hasn't had a punt return for a touchdown since Willie Reid had three in 2005. Will that change this season? i would like to think so but doubt it.

How many regular season wins will FSU finish with in 2008?
12 ;) no I'll say 10(lose to UF and ?)

What bowl game, if any, will FSU end up in?
Orange Bowl!!

Will this be Bobby Bowden's last season?
possibly if we win all the marbles but very doubtful so ill say 09 or 10 is his last rodeo

1. Christian Ponder.

2. Yes. FSU hasn't had a thousand yard rusher since 1996. Due in large part to having two cupcake games to start off the year, I think this is the year Antone finally snaps that streak.

3. Greg Carr. Carr currently has twenty-five career touchdowns as a seminole. His height and tremendous leaping ability make him dangerous in the redzone. Preston Parker will be right up there, but Carr edges out Parker due to the fact he is suspended for the first two games.

4. Derek Nicholson. Nicholson led FSU in tackles last season(99). There is no reason to believe that will change this year. Infact, Nicholson will break the 100 tackle mark and finish in the top ten in tackles in the ACC.

5. Patrick Robinson. Last year PRob finished as the most decorated member of the FSU secondary despite beginnging the season on the bench. He led the team in interceptions with six. Like Nicholson, there is no reason to believe PRob won't lead this category again this year.

6. Higher. With the addition of Markus White and the return of Kevin McNeil, two highly touted pass rushers, the Seminoles will finish with 30+ sacks this season.

7. Top half, but barely. I think we finish fifth in the ACC in rushing.

8. Virginia Tech. ( If this will even be considered an upset ) Virginia Tech looked pretty bad this past week against ECU. The losses of Duane Brown, Brandon Flowers, Eddie Royal, Chris Ellis, Xavier Adibi, Carlton Powell, Josh Morgan, and Justin Harper to the NFL really hurt this team. I think they will get it together once Macho Harris gets back, but to me this is still our most likely upset.

9. Georgia Tech. They looked impressive this past weekend putting up 41 on Jacksonville State. Their defense, lead by stud DE Michael Johnson is extremely underrated. Coach Wommack will have his unit ready to go. Also, their new option offense could potentially pose problems.
What scares me about this game is that it is sandwiched between VaTech and Clemson, plus it is on the road.

10. Everette Brown, Patrick Robinson, and Myron Rolle.

11. Maryland. 14-7 over Delaware in week one. Maryland has way too many question marks on both sides of the ball.

12. Unfortunately, No.

13. Nine.

14. Gator Bowl. Occupied last year by than 20th ranked ACC team Virginia. I think we will finish in similar position.

15. No. Bobby wants to finish with the most career wins, to do this, I think he will have to coach another year or two. Also, next year Samford is on the schedule. Coach Bowden started his career at that school and I think they are scheduled next year for a reason. I think he wants to play the school he started his career with before he retires.

Posted on 9/3 2:54 AM | IP: Logged

1 - Ponder

2 - Yes, Antone

3 - Surrency most TDs

4 - Nicholson tackles

5 - Jamie Robinson Ints

6 - Between 35-40 sacks

7 - middle in rushing

8 - Assuming they are favored: VT, then Miami, then Clemson

9 - Maryland (although I feel a lot better about this game after the crap fest Maryland played this past weekend)

10 - Rolle (although he may not get drafted very high, Brown and Surrency)

11 - NC State (the problem with Thursday night games in the past has been the lack of time to prep, but we have the week off before this game, so why does it matter it is on a Thursday)

12 - Hopefully Preston takes one back in a big game

13 - 10 (I can't believe the lack of faith from all of you guys except Derek. Certainly 10 is very optimistic and going out on a limb, but you guys can't even say 9? We can't win 9 games playing essentially 8 home games, two cupcakes, possibly only two ranked opponents all year and in one of the worst BCS conferences? We could be favored in every game except Wake and UF, you guys need to have some faith.)

14 - If we win the Atlantic we play in the BCS (nobody from the Coastal is winning the ACC). If not, then the Peach. Finish the season in the bottom half of the top 10 and pre-season top 10 in 2009.

15 - 2009 will be Bobby's last year.

Posted on 9/3 5:30 AM | IP: Logged

1. Probably Drew, I'll believe the "best player will play" mantra when I see it.

2. Yes, Antone will have to be a workhorse due to depth/injuries

3. Parker, tears it up when he returns

4. Nicholson, especially in the first 2-3 games. Teams should be focused on the middle of our defense.

5. Rolle

6. I expect higher with Brown and White.

7. Bottom. We'll still be throwing a lot though better balance this year than in the recent past.

8. VT

9. Maryland

10. Brown, Parker and Rolle

11. NC State

12. After seeing all the returns on the first week, I would say yes

13. 9

Boy, what a bunch of optimists. Have we been watching the same team the past few years?

Unsettled at QB, little proven depth at RB, unproven OL, no depth on the interior Dline, injured kicker etc. Looks like another 7-win season to me.

I hope some of you are right and my gut is dead wrong.

D'Vontrey Richardson.

Yes, Smith.

Corey Surrency.

Derek Nicholson.

Robinson and Robinson tie with 5 each.

Higher - we will have 35 sacks with much better pressure from the ends this year.

Top half. The line is doing a good job with run blocking, Antone looks healthy, and Ty is a nice suprise with Pressley going down.

Wake Forest. That game is too important for us and the team will not lose that game again.

Florida, if we are favored.

Myron Rolle is definitely gone, Corey Surrency and Preston Parker will leave early unless they have a bad year.

NC State, Ga Tech. Maryland and Miami will be tough at home.

No, no returns this year.

10 wins. 1 upset and a loss to UF.

Orange Bowl - We will beat Va Tech in the ACC Championship and set up for a run at the NC next year.

No, we will make a run at the NC next year and that will be his last year.

Posted on 9/3 7:55 AM | IP: Logged

#1. Hopefully Drew Weatherford. It's time for him to pull it together this year.

#2. No, but Antone will get close.

#3. Preston Parker despite the suspension
#4. Watson
#5. Patrick Robinson - the kid is magnetically attracted to the ball.
#6. Maybe 2 or 3 lower due to suspensions
#7. We'll still be in the bottom half, but closer to the middle (sounds like a Yogism)
#8. Miami - if you can call it an upset
#9. Ga Tech. And maybe Maryland.
#10. Brown, Rolle, P-Rob
#11. Only one that really scares me is Ga Tech. They have that crazy offense now.
#12. Yes, we'll also take back a blocked one.
#13. 8 - we'll pull an upset and lose one we shouldn't.
#14. Peach bowl. Would love to go up against Tennessee and B. Warren
#15. If we win 8 or less, then yes. If we win 9 or more, then no.



Posted on 9/3 8:02 AM | IP: Logged

D'Vo or Ponder

Three AS, Ty Jones, and D'VO should all rush for 1,000. Jimbo runs a lot and these men can run.

Tie Carr and Surrency with 10 each with Easterling close at 8(he is tough in traffic, surehanded and hard to bring down). Haven't heard enough about Fortson and don't know Reliford who could surprise.

Nigel Bradham-He is just the best

Pat Robinson-He has a knack but Moody is a big mean machine that could get into the picture(big, fast, and nasty).

Over-I expect White, Brown, and Bradham to go over 30 between themselves. If they bring in Moody at FS and play him 5 yards behind the line like Buddy Ryan did when he was with Chicago that could change things.

FSU will be No 1 in ACC and top 10 in nation in rushing. Jimbo likes to run at least 50% of time.

Most likely upset VT. I don't think BB has lost to them but once lifetime.

Most likely to upset us is Miami. Even when they don't have squat, like this year, they get lucky sometimes. We need to really lay one on them.

Rolle, Surrency, White

NC State-I don't think they score. They may not get a first down.

I look for several with Carter and AJ Alexander back there. Fast and fearless.

I think we win 12 if D'VO or Ponder at QB. I'm only concerned with WF due to suspensions. I think we become a scoring machine and a defensive nightmare for our opponents.

If anyone else is QB bets off.

Orange Bowl

No I think he stays at least one more year and perhaps more. He deserves to go out all time wins champion and Joe Pa and his rinky dink schedule has tied him at the moment. I think we are rolling again though.

I'm hoping for a MNC this year or in the next two. Then I suspect he will hang them up.

Which quarterback will start the most games this season?

Ponder, but they will all get time, and I dont see one outshining any of the others. EJ cant learn the system quick enough.

Will FSU have a 1,000 yard rusher?

No, antone has proven one thing, hes inconsistant. He also has always picked up nagging injuries and is almost solely reliant on running past or around people.

Which wide receiver will score the most touchdowns?

Greg Carr, just becuase he will get the most opportunity, as he is not suspended and is rarely injured

Which defensive player will lead FSU in tackles?

Derek N

Which defender will rack up the most interceptions?

Tony Carter. I think the same thing that happened last year will reverse, in that people will throw to challenge tony.

The Seminole defense finished with 29 sacks in 2007. Will the sack number be higher, lower or the same in 2008?

Higher. Brown really only put up big sack numbers in a handful of games. Now that there is a legit threat on the other side he should get one on one opportunities. Additionally, White has a knack for the sack.

Will FSU finish in the top or bottom half of the ACC in rushing?

Dead middle, which is more of a dig at the ACC rushers as a whole, than the strength of FSU's running game

Which opponent on the schedule is FSU most likely to upset?

Well I would think we will be favored against everyone but VT, Clemson, and UF. We wont beat UF. So the logical choice seems Clemson, who is obviously having issues when Bowden is calling Saban for advise.

Which opponent on the schedule will most likely upset FSU?

Everyone says Maryland, but I say BC.

Name three underclassmen that will most likely declare for the NFL following the season.

Rolle is gone, everyone knows it. Preston Parker thinks hes a better pro prospect than he really is, and with all the problems of this summer, I bet he will want a fresh start. Everette Brown has an NFL ready body, and will only have to put up minimal sack numbers to get a good look at the first day of the draft, as he will smoke the combine.

Which conference road game are you most confident about FSU chances (Miami, NC State, Ga. Tech or Maryland)?

NC State, cuase they stink

FSU hasn't had a punt return for a touchdown since Willie Reid had three in 2005. Will that change this season?

It should. We have a ton of talent at the PR position. Any of these guys could do it: Parker, MRG, AJ Alexander, Brandon Paul, JT

How many regular season wins will FSU finish with in 2008?

Ive been saying between 7 and 9. It all depends on the wake game. We win that one and I say 9, we lose and I say 7. But pressed for an answer i'll split the difference and say 8.

What bowl game, if any, will FSU end up in?

I'll say the reptile bowl

Will this be Bobby Bowden's last season?

Nope, hes not retiring untill god retires him (if you know what i mean)

DVo

Yes, Antone with 1200, a lot coming in the first couple of games

Greg Carr

Derek Nicholson

Jamie Robinson, have a good feeling about him

Yes, although I am worried about the interior line not producing enough havoc to let the outside guys get loose

Top half, very confident about this

Clemson, I think they beat Va Tech too

Maryland, although I don't think they will

PRob, Parker, Surrency

NC State, they look awful

Yes, early game

10 (WCU, Chatt, Colorado, NC State, Miami, Ga Tech, Maryland, Va Tech, Clemson, BC)

Which quarterback will start the most games this season?

D'Vo. Athleticism adds missing component to our offensive attack.

Will FSU have a 1,000 yard rusher?

No. Close, but no cigar.

Which wide receiver will score the most touchdowns?

Surrency. The man-child becomes a man.

Which defensive player will lead FSU in tackles?

Derek Nicholson. Will have a break out year in 2008.

Which defender will rack up the most interceptions?

Tony Carter. Patrick Robinson is starting out in a 3 game hold, and teams won't test him as much as in 2007.

The Seminole defense finished with 29 sacks in 2007. Will the sack number be higher, lower or the same in 2008?

Higher. The upgrade at DE will help us realize a gain to the mid to high 30's.

Will FSU finish in the top or bottom half of the ACC in rushing?

Right in the middle. Clemson, Ga Tech, Miami, Wake Forest, and Va Tech exceed our total.

Which opponent on the schedule is FSU most likely to upset?

Va Tech. Replacing a lot.

Georgia Tech. We may get clipped with the option attack.

1. I want to say Drew for the experience factor, but I'm going to go with D'Vo.

2. Yes. I think this is Antone's break out year.

3. Carr

4. Nicholson

5. Carter

6. The number will be higher with a more experienced and athletic Brown and a tenacious rusher in White.

7.It'll be close. Middle-top half.

8. Clemson

9. Wake

10. Rolle, Parker, Brown

11. Honestly, all of them, but if I have to pick one I'll go with NCST.

12.Yes. There's too much speed not to have at least 1 punt return for a TD.

13. 8 or 9

14. The optimist/'Nole fan in me says they go to a BCS bowl game, but the realist in me says Gator.

15. No. I think '09 is the last horrah.

15 Burning Questions:

Which quarterback will start the most games this season?
I'll say Ponder starts first and holds on to it.

Will FSU have a 1,000 yard rusher?
No

Which wide receiver will score the most touchdowns?
Carr, if he really has improved his route running I can't see how he won't have double digit touchdowns.

Which defensive player will lead FSU in tackles?
D. Nicholson seems like the safe pick with all the guys missing around him.

Which defender will rack up the most interceptions?
I'll go with T. Carter to have 6 interceptions this season. The current crop of ACC Qbs is awful so our secondary will have a lot of chances to get their hands on the ball.

The Seminole defense finished with 29 sacks in 2007. Will the sack number be higher, lower or the same in 2008?

I expect a lot more sacks this season, maybe even approaching 40. We haven't had two legit pass rushers on each side in years so that should be a strength.

Will FSU finish in the top or bottom half of the ACC in rushing?

I think we'll finish in the top half in rushing and pound teams in the second half this year.

Which opponent on the schedule is FSU most likely to upset?

wake forest, I know we're short handed for this game and Wake has out coached us the last two years but all it takes is our top players showing up and we can win this game. We have absolutely shown minimal discipline against them the last two years and I think that will change.

Which opponent on the schedule will most likely upset FSU?

NCState, perhaps the worst team in the ACC. I don't care who they have, Thursday night games in Raleigh scare me to death. Total trap game.

Name three underclassmen that will most likely declare for the NFL following the season.

Watson, Rolle, Brown

Which conference road game are you most confident about FSU chances (Miami, NC State, Ga. Tech or Maryland)?

Maryland, it may be tough to get up a week before Florida, but on paper Maryland has the worst offense in the conference so we should have the most room for error in College Park. I also expect Maryland to be 3-7 by that point with little interest from their fan base already out of the bowl picture.

FSU hasn't had a punt return for a touchdown since Willie Reid had three in 2005. Will that change this season?

Yes, Carter or Parker is very capable of bringing one back on punts.

How many regular season wins will FSU finish with in 2008?

9, I would have said 8 until I watched most of the ACC this weekend, and the conference is a little worse than I thought top to bottom. No one but Florida will be a big favorite against us.

What bowl game, if any, will FSU end up in?

Whatever bowl games puts us as 3rd ACC team, i forget what that is

Will this be Bobby Bowden's last season?

no, only if we win the national title or lose 5 games or more.

Posted on 9/3 9:39 AM | IP: Logged

Start? Drew Weatherford. Will he play the most snaps? Probably not.

No 1,000 yard rusher.

I'm going with Surrency for most TDs.

Dekoda Watson will lead the team in tackles.

Patrick Robinson, even with missing games, will lead in INTs again.

Sack number will be slightly higher, helped by the first two games.

I'd say right in the middle of the pack, maybe shading towards the top half.

Considering most of the teams on the schedule are looking crappy, upsets right now are hard to predict. I'll go with Va. Tech.

Tie between Maryland/Ga. Tech

Patrick Robinson, Preston Parker, Everette Brown

Sorry, forgot the win--NC State

Yes, probably during the first two games.

8 wins

Independence Bowl

No
