Down near the bottom - reference to BYU holding FSU to 28 as why the BYU defense is credible (remember Hawaii tagged them for 70 pts)
Final score was 29-3 over BYU, you dont think we are going to score alot of points every time. The only reasons, and I'll give you 2 as to why we only put 29 points is
1. FSU's first game of the season is BYU?? How are you going to get up for them? We won the NC the previous year, went undefeated, and you just dont know who is going to step up after alot of the key players left.
2. G.Tech was the second game of the season, a much bigger game for the Noles then BYU?? Watch FSU before and after a Miami game or before the Florida game,since thats the last one of the season.
Now, G.Tech Swagger let me ask you this, say you had these 3 following games in this order.. Wake Forest/FSU/Duke, do you see the emotional rollercoaster, who is GTech going to pumped for out of those 3 games?? Well same thing with BYU, first game of the season followed by G.Tech, what team are the Noles thinking about??

Football teams only REALLY "get up" for three or
perhaps four games a year. That is just human
nature. The natural "physc" of it all.

A problem that Florida State faces year in and year out. "Everybody gets up for us!"

Reason's 3 & 4...BYU had a year to prepare for
us. It is not like BYU is Duke. Annually, they
are a good team. Also, we were one of the teams
on the BYU schedule, that "they got up for!"

Swagger when I wrote the thread about the Florida
State schedule...which was actually about the
special treatment that we receive from the league
in regards to scheduling. I made note of the
mental ups and downs that a team will go thru
during the season and that not only do you need
top athletes and luck, but the teams that you
play need to be laid out in a way to not get
out "upped" by an opponent.

GT, was highly rated last year...Confidence level
was very high at the beginning of the year.

Would the outcome of the Florida State-Georgia
Tech game been different, if the game had been
played when it was supposed to have been played?
The team also lost a bunch of leaders on both sides of the ball. Of course, Jano was gone. Corey Simon and Jerry Johnson graduated, along with some guy named Warrick.
Warrick?????? Who's that????? <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" /> <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="biggrin.gif" />

The season was one big blowup in the final minutes of big games. It seems there were alot of bad coaching calls, and alot of bad plays. By the time the FSU game rolled around, the season seemed already over for the team. The only reason they got up for Stanford in the Seattle Bowl was because they all loved Coach Mac. O'Leary ultra-strict style and tendency to play favorites (refer to Gregory scoring two touchdowns in two games near the end of the season, but not getting the ball once in his final regular season and home game vs. UGA in Atlanta).
