Very impressed with the play of Nolan Turner this year. He has been all over the field. I know he had one missed tackle but glad he’s putting the naysayers to bed. Shows to trust our coaches and their knack for talent evaluation and development.

Nolan is never mentioned by the coaches that I know of, but he is solid and consistent and rarely screws up. Does his job without the flexing and posturing. One of my favorite players.

Legacy turned into a weapon, that's not seen very often and if it does, I'm glad that it's with a guy that came in under the circumstances as Nolan Turner did. His dad would have been so proud, and I'm absolutely positive that Dabo is beside himself with the way thing have turned out with Nolan progress, bc of his hard work and determination to make his scholarship counted for. Personally I couldn't be happier for the kid, and more happy that he proved me wrong with his capability and determination to earn his scholly. Nolan Turner has more than proved that nothing was just gave to him bc he has earned everything he has gotten, especially with his scholarship offer!!!

The missed tackle was more of a stiff-arm by the offensive player. Nolan got handled and I literally called him out to my friends saying that’s always going to be a mismatch for us. Then, like Nolan heard me or something, Nolan turned it up. He definitely proved something to me out there.


Maybe it was the strength of the A&M O line, or maybe it

was missing 4 of the best DL ever to play the game, but it was clear our front still needs to grow up some. We might not see our DL living in the opposing backfield this year, but good Lawrd with the closing/blitz speed of Simmons and Muse we'll be fine. Those guys can be anywhere on the field in a split second. Kudos to VB for devising a scheme that just flummoxed Mond completely.

It's tough to fault the return team. A&m had 2 kickoffs, after the field goal and at the start of the half, the one at the end of the game was a moot point.

Although we forced 6 punts, their punter is a phenom. If he's not booting it 60 yards or more with plenty of hang time, he is killing it inside the 20. Last year he had the best year of any punter EVER. I was thrilled there were no muffs.


Thought the offensive playcalling was atrocious to be honest

I'll never understand why we have arguably the best QB to ever play college football, a field full of 6'4+ 5 star receivers yet we throw the ball sideline to sideline? Where are the slants? Where are the posts? I just think Tony Elliott has to do a better job of putting these guys in a position to succeed. Don't pull back the reigns on your thoroughbred ( Lawrence ). Scheme up some plays and let that man do his thing!

I agree that our WR's are not being put in the best position to utilize their superior talents. 50/50 jump balls cant be the go-to option, especially against the tall DB's that A&M had. Need way more slants, posts, double-move flys.

I think what he is saying that if best is the standard, let em play to score all the time. Use the Spurrier killer instinct to bury the other team, no matter who you have in the game.

They graded out Awful, terrible and mismanaged because Dumbo Fisher is overrated. Sure, he won a national title, but then look at the shape he left that FSU program in. They may never recover.

The Aggys will be saying for the rest of my life that they would have won if they had just had a little more time. They never lose a game, you know, they just run out of time.
You think the Cooters are bad? Try living around a bunch of Aggys. They are the worst. Course, I wear orange to infuriate them all the time.

Clemson has never beaten an SEC team, the SEC just keeps given the games away.
