It is the holiday season, and as we all plan to get together with our friends and loved ones to celebrate and feast, it’s time to look back and remember what makes us happy. Even though FSUs season has been a disappointment to most, there are still positives we need to take away from this team, and be thankful that we’re not worse off than we are right now.
So without further ado, I am thankful for:
Defensive Coordinator Mark Stoops: When Stoops signed on to become the Defensive Coordinator, he took on a whole lot of talent, but not a lot of efficency. In a mere two years, he now boasts a top ten defense statistically, reminding fans of the FSU defense of years past.
QB Clint Trickett: Even though he went 0-2 as a starter, Trickett performed admirably in his relief appearance when starter EJ Manuel went down, and kept FSU competitive in every game they played. With a little more seasoning, I am confident when Manuel graduates, Trickett will be ready to take the reins.
DEs Brandon Jenkins and Bjoern Werner: The bookends have made life miserable for opposing teams. They have a combined 13 sacks, which is more than 8 Division-1 Football Programs. Beyond that, these two are in the backfield on almost every play, and both have more than enough potential to be playing on Sundays in the future.
