"Maybe the Seminoles need to take a look at their strength and conditioning program, or strength coaching staff. They continue to get players sustaining serious injuries, and it's not like this has been a one-year anamoly."
"If the damage is greater within ACC play during the second half, and Florida wins the regular-season finale between the archrivals, change must come in some shape or form for FSU football. Five losses for a second consecutive season and for the third time in five seasons, plus a sixth straight season of not being in the national championship hunt can't be ignored. Or accepted. "

"The program is learning humility one week at a time. Saturday, it meant facing Duke unranked; this week, humility means hosting a ranked ACC opponent while still unranked."
"Florida State's 51-24 win at Duke came with a price as linebacker Geno Hayes (knee sprain) and defensive tackle Letroy Guion (shoulder) were the latest casualties for a unit that has already lost at least four prominent players for the season.

"Help wanted: Linebackers. Need quick learners for urgent openings on a unit recognized annually among the nation's best. . . . OK, NCAA bylaws must contain a rule somewhere barring coaches from openly seeking résumés in midseason. But no one could fault Bobby Bowden if the thought fleetingly crossed his mind."
