Throughout the storied history of Florida State football, one of the all-time fan favorites for many Noles is without question, Warrick Dunn. Dunn holds the record for single season rushing yards (1,242) and in a career (3,959). He is the only Seminole to ever rush for 1,000 yards in three consecutive seasons. No Seminole has ever rushed for more 100 yard games (21) or scored more touchdowns in their career (49). He is without question, one of the greatest Noles of all-time. In addition to his greatness on the field, he is known universally as one of the sport's true nice guys and represents Florida State University with great pride and honor in everything that he does. We were fortunate enough to have Warrick Dunn take time out of his very busy schedule and answer a few questions for us to share his thoughts on the current state of FSU and what he has been up to.  no comments

The Seminoles continued their winning streak on Thursday night, extending it to four straight victories against the Boston College Eagles. Yet another stellar defensive performance allowed the Seminoles to skate away rather easily, this time despite the fact that the offense struggled to find its normal rhythm throughout the night. The Florida State defense now sits at #2 in the country in yards per play and #4 in the country in yards per game, putting them right in the thick of things behind the two NFL Minor League defenses that faced off in the game of the century Saturday night. While FSU isn't quite there yet, it is obvious that the Seminole defense is making serious strides and has settled in nicely this season.

Thursday night, the Florida State Seminoles (5-3) will take on the Boston College Eagles (2-6) in Chestnut Hill. The Seminoles come in riding a three game winning streak in which they have outscored their opponents 116-32 and outgained them each by at least 2.5 yards per play. The hope is that the focus can continue, despite playing on just five days rest against a team that often gives Florida State trouble. As the Seminoles continue to work their way into a comfort level that allows them to play at the level most people predicted they would in the preseason, the dreaded Thursday night contest is just the type of curveball that those same people will want to see FSU handle with relative ease. In their favor, the Seminoles have the fact that the Eagles are also playing on just five days rest after winning their first game against an FBS opponent on Saturday. Let's hear what our resident fans have to say about this short week turnaround and how the Noles will fare.

Tomorrow at 8pm,  FSU will take on the Boston College Eagles in primetime for a Thursday Night Atlantic Coast Conference game.

 

While it has been a rough season for Boston College, there are still very talented players that will be taking the field tomorrow night.  Luke Kuechly may be the best on field period.

 

To help preview the game the voice of the BC Eagles - Jon Meterparel agreed to answer five questions.

Boston College head coach Frank Spaziani


Opening Statement:

“We looked at the tape.  We still won and we’re getting ready for our next one.”


How does a short week challenge you in terms of getting the team prepared and healthy?

 

“It magnifies the problems.  Guys are injured or might miss a couple of days and there’s no catching up.  If they have to miss [practice], they can usually miss early and be ready to go.  You have to be ready to go Tuesday here.  It’s very challenging.”

Welcome to "Tale of the Tape", Boston College edition, as we give you some aspects and numbers to  pay attention to on Thursday.


Props to Kuechly:

Luke-KuechlyBoston College has had a tough season to say the least.  To call Junior linebacker Luke Kuechly a bright spot would not accurately describe the player that Luke has been.

Coming into the match up versus Florida State – Luke Kuechly has registered double-digit tackles in thirty consecutive games. Amazing.  Kuechly – who is a semifinalist for the Butkus and Lombardi Awards – has recorded 471 tackles, including 206 solo tackles, in 34 career games.  Those numbers are good for 13.9 tackles per game in his career and 7.8 solo tackles.  You will not find another active college football player in the country who can say they have done what Kuechly has.

A lot has been made of recent comments made by one of America's greatest sports legends of all-time, The Golden Bear himself, Jack Nicklaus. Nicklaus is the grandfather of Florida State freshman TE Nick O'Leary. Last week, Nicklaus made comments that can be found on this ESPN760.com podcast (6:35 mark) in regards to Nick O'Leary's utilization, or lack thereof within the Florida State offense. The comments were then compounded when an impromptu visit to the ESPNU broadcast booth during Saturday's game led to another question on the subject, which The Golden Bear again responded to with unfortunately negative sentiments towards the FSU offense. Nicklaus griped that Nick O'Leary isn't targeted often enough and implied that he is getting an unfair shot at contributing. In his defense, this is his grandson and it is nearly impossible for many direct relatives to be completely objective in a situation such as this. The issue that seems shocking to me is that there are actually FSU fans that agree with Nicklaus' sentiments. It is important to view this situation with the proper perspective and without automatically claiming that my perspective is synonymous with the proper one, I will provide it as an alternative and you can decide for yourself.
