Florida State facing largest deficit of the season

Maybe the adversity issue was worth discussing leading up to the BCS Championship Game after all.

Down 14-3 it looked as though Florida State escaped digging a deeper hole. Auburn settled for a field goal attempt midway through the second quarter, but the kick sailed wide right. On the ensuing possession Jameis Winston attempted running up the middle but was stripped of the football. Auburn jumped on the loose ball to set up in great field position. This time, the Tigers took advantage.

There is still a lot of football to be played, but the concerns about Florida State handling adversity are starting to show just how much of a concern it should have been. Auburn is out-gaining Florida State 225-91 as of this posting.

Auburn is leading the number one team in the country, 21-3. It is the largest deficit of the season for Florida State has faced all season.

    I hope Winston turns his game around, if not those people calling him the next coming might have to change that.

    I mean the next coming can’t choke in the big game.

    They are gonna rank every team in the SeC in the top 20 next year to insure a one, two or three loss team still takes up two spots in CFB playoff.

    I really miss the pace of the Orange Bowl.

    Either somebody being helped off or a penalty flag thrown after every play.

    That fake punt saved the game from being a blow out – which it still may end up being. For much of that first half, Florida State simply looked overmatched in every facet and Winston looked overhwelmed. As a Buckeye fan, I’ve seen this happen before.

    Auburn is looking very good at the half versus Florida State. Maybe the SEC is the best conference in college football. I’m an Aggie fan but I’m rootin’ for Auburn.

    ACC is NOT the SEC.

    hey at least if Auburn wins, every fan of an SEC team can feel like a winner tonight…

    This game is over. May go down to the wire, but Auburn will win. To shut SEC fan up, FSU has to blow them out & that ship has sailed. Kentucky & Arkansas fans will be dancing in the streets tonight…or something.

    ==========================

    and if FSU wins, every fan of a non-SEC team can feel like a winner tonight…

    @theraiderskin

    Sad….but true.

    Oklahoma 45, Alabama 31
    Utah 31, Alabama 17
    Louisville 33, Florida 23
    , etc.

    SEC invincibility is a myth. So many fans of also-rans in that conference try to take credit for the work 2 or 3 teams have done for the last 7 years.

    @deadeye:

    Wrong….Michigan & oSU will still hate each other. OU & TX will still hate each other. SC & UCLA will still hate each other. FSU & Miami will still hate each other. Red Sox & Yankees fans will still hate each other. Dodgers & Giants fans will still hate each other. In other words, true sports fans appreciate true rivals and don’t root for a conference based on an inferiority complex.

    Nice try irishdodger. But everyone is openly cheering for FSU, and that’s to be expected. Having the SEC win 8 in a row will make mst of the country want to throw up, so for tonight at least all non-SEC folks are united in their vitriol for the SEC.

    For the record, I predict FSU will come back and win. They are too explosive to stay down.

  15. irishdodger says: Jan 6, 2014 10:59 PM

    @deadeye, wrong again. Regardless of who wins life goes on tomorrow as normal….except for SEC fan whose entire identity is dependent on what a team from the same conference as their favorite team does. I’ve never been an FSU fan….they have ALWAYS done less with more talent & they’re doing it agin tonight. I love Gus Malzahn….I’m an Arkansan & no state has produced greater college football coaches than the Natural State!
