If you hadn’t heard yet, Willie Taggert is gone

A bomb dropped in Tallahassee today… coach, or should I say former coach Willie Taggert has been relieved of his duties at Florida State. If you didn’t already know that, you probably haven’t been on Facebook, or the internet in general, this afternoon.

As a graduate of Florida State, a lot of my Facebook feed revolves around the breaking news. I’d talked to some of my family just a few weeks ago and we agreed if he finished the season with 6 wins and 6 losses, he may be given another year. But if it were 5 wins and 7 losses, no sir, gone! Well, we were kinda right… but he’ll never get a chance to get to 7 losses. At least not at FSU.

I don’t know of any names floating around that fans would happy with. Many fans are fed up, and they’re not alone. Even ESPN host Kirk Herbstreit had a real hangry outburst about FSU and the crazy part is he’s probably right about everything.

It’ll be interesting what happens next as far as head coaching goes. A return of Bobby Bowden? Perhaps, Mark Richt? I may even become a fan again if either of those two great men were hired for the job. But it’s FSU, so they’ll somehow mess things up further for the football program, I’m sure.

For now, gone are the days of great football at Florida State.

Florida State’s “turnover” backpack

Seminole football may be in the spotlight but for an embarrassing reason. Whenever the defense gets a turnover, one of the players involved “gets to” wear this Dora the Explorer inspired backpack. Tell me, Noles, do Chanel accessories conflict with your Nike deals?

I Fought the Law and the Law Won

It’s taken me weeks (ok, years) to accept the fact that I stink at fantasy football. Like, really stink! The problem usually starts on draft night. This year I had the 3rd overall pick which is a prime position for picking up a stud player, even in a keeper league. I went with Matt Ryan which, if you care, was a pretty good choice. Then in round 2 everything began to unravel. I picked Shonne Green which, if you care, was a pretty bad choice. The underlying problem is that I coach The Billy Oceans with my heart and not my head! It’s propelled me to a 1-7 record that my head knows is right, and my heart is aching for it. The silver lining this football season is that the Noles are ranked in the top 5 with a chance at a National Title! If only I was part of the group that helps come up with the BCS rankings because this time, my head and my heart agree… FSU is the best team in the country.

Oh, so the reason for the title of this post… law: every time I let my heart influence fantasy football picks, I end up with a terrible record. I tried to prove that wrong this season and, well, the law won.

It’s a rebuilding year I guess,
