Day After Observations: Ole Miss vs. Florida State


Frankly, FSU was fortunate that it didn't roll out in the end zone, which would have given Ole Miss the ball.

Podcasts! The Solid Verbal runs through everything Week 1 (is this a good time to remind you one co-host is a Notre Dame fan?), while the Shutdown Fullcast mostly just makes fun of the SEC.

The most alarming injury for the Rebels is Tony Conner right now.

Three years after Winston kicked off his Heisman Trophy campaign, Deondre Francois displayed the same unquenchable desire that fuels Winston's championship hopes with the Buccaneers. There were a series of errors by the 'Nole offense-not atypical for a young QB facing intense pressure.

He led the Seminoles on four touchdown drives and positioned freshman kicker Ricky Aguayo to convert a school-record six field goals.

His only big mistake was a third quarter interception that set up a Kizer touchdown run in the Notre Dame rally. Kelly also said Tuesday that he has not yet made a decision on his quarterbacks moving forward.

Take, for example, a user in Mumbai who now pays ₹150 a month for making just voice calls with no data usage at all. Reliance Jio is available to everyone starting today, and still, there is a lot of information you should know.

Hermine leaves 2 dead as storm crashes us holiday weekend
Because of concerns about rough seas, risky surf and strong storm surge, no swimming was allowed on NY beaches Sunday and Monday. Moreover, the areas near the coast will be flooded by waters caused by the hurricane's storm surge.

"The thing with tempo is you have to get positive yards on first and second down, and we weren't getting that in the second half", Ole Miss co-offensive coordinator Dan Werner said.

Nick Chubb, RB, Georgia: Chubb made his return from an ACL tear that ended his season in 2015 and made up for lost time quickly, rushing the ball 32 times for 222 yards and two touchdowns in the Bulldogs' win over North Carolina. The second half, we didn't win any of those. Instead of looking at the 1988 Miami game for comparison, the second half provided a better comparison with the 1994 Seminoles and their other in-state rival.

"He cranked it up in the second half". Francois started off shaky like anyone else making their first start, but showed plenty of poise in the second half and won over people when it came to what was once a debate about who should start. Kermit Whitfield's 3-yard run was the go-ahead TD in the third quarter. Unless there is a brain fart down the road, the Clemson/FSU game will likely determine on of the 4 teams in the College Football playoff. After falling behind by 22 points, getting dominated on both lines of scrimmage and making insane mistakes like Dalvin Cook fumbling away the easiest touchdown he could ever score, it would have been easy for the Seminoles to say it wasn't their day. The penalties were out of hand. We say they looked like a pretty good offensive team who wasn't quite so good on defense. In less than 15 minutes the 'Noles had scored 30 points without a murmur from the Rebels. But he bounced back and managed the game and made plays.

Two came on key third downs that forced the Rebels to punt while FSU nursed a one-score lead. Ole Miss countered another Florida State score with a touchdown as Judd rumbled 11 yards to make it a 22-point game.

Preseason All-America defensive back Derwin James led the Seminoles with eight tackles, while defensive back Trey Marshall and linebacker Matthew Thomas had seven each. I don't even know how to describe it right now. He started to settle down and went more to the check down receiver, which freed up more single coverage in the second half that the Seminoles took advantage of with more passes downfield.
