    With my wife out of town this week, I was able to rewatch both the CSU and WVU games. I also watched the FSU-Wake game.

    Watching the o-line, Solder seemed to do very well in his pass blocking. I can't recall the ends ever getting around him. Then I watched the FSU d-end and had to check to make sure my DVR was not on fast-forward. Good gawd is Everette Brown (#99) fast. There were a couple of times that I was certain he was off-sides, but the refs never called it.

    The CSU and WVU d-ends looked very slow in comparison, relying on a bull rush that Solder was able to handle. But how will he do against a DE that runs like a RB? I'd like to think that, with Solder's time as a TE, he has enough lateral speed to cut Brown off, but I gotta be honest, #99 scares the **** out me.

    Anyone care to offer some reassurance? Maybe they'll use the FB/H-Back/TE to double team him?

    We're doomed. We're going up against the '85 bears, a team who has gone 15-12 the last two years.:wow:

    Interestingly enough, the Buffs have more in common with the '85 Bears (Cabral) than the Semenholes.

    For the record, I fully expect a win in a low scoring game. The Buffs O has been touch and go (but showed improvement last week) while the FSU D is very good (not '85 bears good). Our D has also been very good, averaging less than 2 td's given up per game, going up against an FSU O that has completely jumped the tracks.

    My post was focused on Brown who was very impressive against the Demon Deacons.

    All we have to do is have one guy hold him while another guy blocks his knee from the side. Then anyone around can step on his neck.

    I heard Everette Brown has a hang nail on his big toe. Should slow him up a bit.

    My worry is that if FSU wins, it will be by defense scoring from tipped balls or INTs. hell, throw fumbles in too. I don't think their offense will beat CU's D; but if we don't get the higher amount of turnovers it might be real tight for CU.

    I wonder if instead of standard pass blocking where you back up and try to keep the defender in front of you if it would be best to move at him and hit him to cut off the angle so he can't get around a easily. It seem if you step up or back he'll burn the slower O lineman.

    The problem with that is that offensive linemen can't cross the line of scrimmage on pass plays where the ball is thrown over the line of scrimmage. That's how you get illegal man downfield penalties. So in pass protection, the O-line needs to take a step back to avoid this problem.

    They can step forward, pop, and recoil back.

    Couple of hard counts to draw him offside should help slow him down.

    This guy scares me but, frankly, I'm more worried about tipped passes at the LOS from Cody. Wake Forrest's QB had 3-4 passes batted down and he's 6'1". Cody is 5'11" with his cleates on and a fauxhawk and has a well known history of getting passes tipped/blocked. This is one of the few real problems I have with Cody - his chronic problem with passes tipped/blocked by pass rushers. With the way the FSU Dline plays I think we should expect at least 3-5 passes to get a touch at the LOS which I hope will drop to the ground and not get intercepted (ala CSU). :sad1:

    I'm going to give the FSU Defense it's full due respect....but I will say most of this respect is coming from one game against one FBS opponent. This defense could be so confused by the various sets CU throws at them that they get lost and BLOWN away. Going to be some new players on the field that haven't seen live action in months. Are they going to fold..not likely...but who knows. Let's Get It On...
