Lawn Maintenance Tuesday brought to you by All American Tree Pro
We’re “loosey goosey” here at the Jeff Cameron Show all week this week. We’re all recovering from one of the most exciting games Doak has seen in a long time.
Today’s headline for Florida State University comes courtesy of ESPN “Irked Fisher halts interview over rep query.” The interview came during a Touchdown Club meeting in Alabama, an event that is supposed to be a night full of jovial banter between football fans and coaches. Coach Fisher was not expecting to walk into an interrogation about Jameis Winston.
Jeff and Tom go on about the difference between this year’s Noles defense and last year’s defense. The biggest difference Jeff points out is the IQ. The defense from last year had a stellar IQ. It shows considering that most of our starters from last year are starters in the NFL. So should fans be concerned with Kelly’s defensive schemes or just realize that this year’s talent is just nowhere close to last year. That’s to be seen. As for now it just seems like our young guns on defense need to grow and flourish in a new defensive system.
What’s on Tap for this week? Miller’s Ale House is going to bring you Game 1 of the World Series. Bumgarner vs. Shields; Giants vs. Royals; both teams are on fire, who will take the early lead?
Be sure to tune into Seminole Headlines where Ira Schoffel, Corey Clark, and Jeff Cameron discuss the latest happenings with the Florida State Seminoles.
Redemption Thursday brought to you by Willard Hurley
Sound the Sirens for a Cat-5 maintain! We have a late kick-off on Saturday night, so let’s have fun, but maybe not too much. When you’re staring down into that first bottle or can of that beer at 8’oclock in the morning just remember, Jeff needs you… the team needs you to be able to muster up the strength and be full-throated when it comes time for the Noles to begin the game.
Jeff predicts the game could come down to the wire, but FSU will come out with a victory. Going along with predictions by Jeff, here are his Redemption Thursday Picks:
LOUISVILLE -16.5 vs nc state
ARKANSAS +3.5 vs uga
washington +20.5 vs OREGON
ALABAMA -13 vs texas a&m
tennessee +17.5 vs OLE MISS
FSU -11.5 vs notre dame
CHICAGO -3 vs miami
SD -4 vs kc
atlanta +7 vs BALTIMORE
seattle -7 vs ST. LOUIS
Kirk Herbstreit joins the show to express his views on how Jameis is being treated and how Jameis should be treated. Be sure to catch that interview in the audio vault.
We wrap up the opening hour with Jeff analyzing Kirk Herbstreit’s interview. Like Herbstreit said, Jeff also agrees if there really are these huge numbers of autographed items from Jameis Winston on the market, why isn’t there proof? Herbstreit also stood up for coaches saying coaches have such a deep connection with their players that when a coach asks their player if they have lied, the coach is going to believe the answer and have the player’s back.
The “magic number” that Florida State has to score on Saturday night in order to win is 31, according to Tom. Jeff sees that “magic number” a little closer to the mid-30s. As we hype of the offense in this game with Jameis vs. Everett, it’s going to come down to defense. It’s no surprise that our defense has played consistently inconsistent all year. It’s hard to live up to such a talented, deep, and ferocious defense as last year. Last year, the defense’s mentality was to go out there and destroy you. They took offense that opposing teams were challenging them, attempting to gain yards. This year’s defense is still figuring out their identity. We saw glimpses of a dominant defense in the second half of the Oklahoma State game, a little in the NC State game, and hopefully we will see the same defense for 4-quarters against Notre Dame.
