FSU football entered the Georgia Tech game as a double-digit betting favorite. The Noles have lost their first four consecutive games since 2017.
The FSU football team started the game against Georgia Tech with a promise. The special teams covered the kickoff by swarming like the FSU teams of yesteryear.
The defense intercepted in a timely manner, and the offense went straight into the field and scored a touchdown to take a 7-0 lead.
However, it seemed to go downhill after that aside from special teams blocking two field goals and an extra point.
James Blackman was inconsistent, wide receivers had multiple crashes and the FSU defense left a freshman to deal with them for the most part.
The Noles were leading 10-0 at halftime and could have been 20-0 if they hadn’t dropped a safe touchdown pass and missed a basket.
It was disappointing, the team seemed to lack determination and resorted to allowing the teams to dominate them in the second half.
FSU football fans have also expressed their displeasure over all of this on social media:
21 games lol it’s gamers

People killed me when I said it was a 5-6 win list based on zero upgrade to QB & OL, minimal upgrade to LB, and no DE pressure. Coaches are vastly improved, the list is not yet.

I wrote down how it was the most important game on the calendar and you’ll see why I wrote this in the weeks to come. This type of loss gives players the same feeling as in recent years.
This makes all the so-called buy-ins they had questionable, and it will be more difficult to sell rookies in the future by looking at what they looked like in the game.
There were several injuries in the game on the offensive line. Joshua Kaindoh was injured early in the game and did not return.
There were a few bright spots in the first half of the game, but the second half was so similar to the last two years it’s scary.
Will Mike Norvell be able to make the necessary adjustments in the week off with Miami on deck? He better make them quick, or fans could be in favor of a COVID-19 bailout.

It is ridiculous in the defense to allow a freshman to have that type of success against them. FSU defensive coordinator Adam Fuller also has an explanation.
