Ok, here's a shocker. Antone Smith is now admitting that last year he was not making the right cuts or reading his blockers and defenders. Ok, it is not a shocker. This is the same Smith that was annointed as the 1,000 yard guy by Bobby Bowden at the start if the 2007 season. That obviously didn't happen. Seems that headed into the 2008 season, Jimbo Fisher and Bobby Bowden are pleased with his new attitude. Time will tell.
Drew Weatherford is impressed with the receivers that he will be throwing to in 2008. FSU has five receivers that are 6-5 five or taller. The addition of junior college transfer Corey Surrency along with Greg Carr, Richard Goodman, Avis Commack and Jarmon Fortson gives Weatherford some nice targets. The question mark will be if he can find them.
FSU 's offense was not the only sluggish part of the football team last year. Mickey Andrews who has always been known for having a tough and stingy defense did not have his best year last year. Case in point. FSU allowed the most touchdowns (38) and passing yards (245.5 per game) in all of Andrews' 24 seasons. In addition, the defense allowed 22.9 points a game, the second-highest total of Andrews' tenure. Enough said.
