FSU RB Chris Thompson leaves with a knee injury

Chris Thompson AP

Florida State got out of South Beach with a 33-20 win over rival Miami. It wasn’t all a celebration, though.

Seminoles running back Chris Thompson left the game with a knee injury and did not return. Thompson was tackled in the second quarter and had to be assisted off the field.

The extent of the injury is unclear at this time. The senior had 47 yards on seven carries before leaving the game. James Wilder Jr. has come in to relieve Thompson and has since scored on a 17-yard run.

Thompson, as you’ll recall, missed a large portion of last season with a broken back.

    The top 3 teams that almost always disappoint THEIR fans:


    Not dogging them just saying–tons of talent, loaded at the skill positions but always seem to play UNDER their capabilities……………….

    I like a good debate……

    I could care less about thumbs up/down

    Please, just tell me what is wrong about the above statement!

    My guess is the thumbs down come from the 3 schools I spoke of—facts are facts!!!!!

    I see your point. If you compare yearly recruiting rankings with production, those 3 teams seem to lag behind the rest. FSU has shown growth in overcoming adversity. In years past we would lose games like Clemson and UM. I would be happy with a 1 or 2 loss year. We just need to get the hell out of the garbage ACC

    “Please, just tell me what is wrong about the above statement!

    You’re correct. You’re getting thumbs down because a.) some thin-skinned fans of those schools may knee-jerk and think you’re ragging on them, b.) its CFT and there are those who come on solely to thumbs down comments, even if its something somber or completely correct, and c.) perhaps some misguided FIU students came here, saw FSU and got whiny because their adopted “I could never even get a job here as a janitor” school, UM, got spanked last night.

    I see growth for FSU, solely because of how they responded vs. Clemson, how they were able to buckle down during early adversity on the road, in Miami, and after getting BS calls from the ref crew. I see tons of depth, which was really the difference last night. When you have a three-headed monster at RB, possibly four if you count Lonnie Pryor, you can run at will. Not having Wilder and Freeman, the latter of whom is coming back slowly after the early season death of his brother, really hurt vs. NCST.

    That’s really the last hurdle for Jimbo and Co – how to handily beat the teams you are supposed to beat, and not just the I-AA opponents. Jimbo’s too cautious with the playcalling and the silver lining, if any, from that loss a few weeks back is that he now knows he needs to be a bit more daring with the offense. Maybe he’s used to having so few weapons but with the playmakers they have now, plus the ones just learning the offense, it’s going to be a nice problem to have for quite a while.

    Avoiding any ESPN games, especially on Thursday nights, and Ron Cherry will help too. I swear, someone from FSU must have nailed his mother, or the mothers of some of the higher ups at ABC/ESPN, because they just HATE FSU. Musburger sounded like he was in pain last night whenever they did well.

    You gotta be focusing your vision mighty hard & sharp to see any silver lining in that NCSt disaster. I mean, that most likely cost FSU a shot in the NC game, since I believe they are favorites in Tallahassee against the Gators, who still face a difficult task this Saturday in Jax.
