Dude sounds like a complete and utter doofus with this one imho. I like the guy, but this was pretty stupid. No national title game? Don't count strength of schedule? Eye test only? Let the college coaches "fairly" vote for who is the best team? Lulz. Good one Jimbo.
think the overall message is dead on
one of the computers has a 9-1 FSU behind 5-5 teams and every computer have Clemson ranked above FSU
thats just not acceptable
Getting rid of the BCS is clear and is being thrown out very soon. Basically saying to rely it all on the "eye test", like FSU and other teams beating up on nobody all year is the way to get into the national title game while other teams play top teams to the wire. All of his alternatives are awful.
hes advocating the way things were done before the BCS. you choose the MNC winner after all the bowl games. the eye test also says we arent going to play for the MNC. obviously it calls for some common sense.
FSU Ambassador to the masses
Don't lose to North Carolina State and FSU is No. 1 in the country right now.
I see what he's saying about the computers, but you don't deserve to play for it if you drop a game like that. The Noles have as much talent as anybody, too.

I agree but the message was more to do with the computers. Since obviously the computer uses formula and not the " eye test "... either way I am glad a playoff is just around the corner
Why you mad?
completely agree. that was a backbreaker. i dont care if wed have played WVU early on and killed them this loss would have kicked our ass in
Me too. There's never been a scenario where one more game wouldn't have solved the debate.
Would have loved to have seen Michigan vs. Nebraska in 1997 for example or Auburn vs. USC in 2004. Heck Georgia Tech vs. Colorado in 1990!
What Jimbo is saying is that the computers and the BCS suck. He also called out some of the media members who vote, and probably never played a down of football in their lives but have impacts on where these teams are ranked. Just looked at the huge difference in our ranking in the BCS, AP and Coaches. The coaches poll is the only one that has FSU ranked above the two loss SEC teams while the others droped FSU in favor of the two loss SEC teams.
He was not saying we should play for the national championship. Just upset with how the computers rank teams. He is right, it is flawed. You are right in that no team that looses to N.C. State should play for ship.
Jimbo's presser was pure gold otherwise
He ripped Gene Williams really nice and also called the BCS system " retarded " lolz, I was laughing pretty effin hard during these two moments
Jimbo went up 3 notches in my book
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
Oh was that Gene who he was arguing with
Ok so he says coaches should vote and should have the overall deciding factor because it would be the most unbiased, and then votes FSU number 4 in the land. Not buying it guys. Sorry. I get what he's saying, and I understand it, but at the same time they would all be worse than what we have now. You honestly can't believe if coaches knew they had the overall deciding factor, they wouldn't vote for themselves, or if they were out of it, vote for a conference foe.
I get how he's mad for sure. LSU and Scar being in the top 10 along with A&M is an embarrassment to the game. You choke and lose 2 games, you're done. Get out of the top 10. But his points would make it way too easy for teams like FSU to squeak through the season playing absolutely nobody. We take into strength of schedule way too much? Lulz Jimbo. Get real. Of course we do.
They weren't really arguing he just told him the truth and then made a crack at Gene's expense
The whole place busted into laughter
shut up, nobody cares that you hate Jimbo
We get it man.... how dare he express his feelings in a press conference and not please all of Gator nation while doing so
I heard a bit of it on the Doakinsider podcast, and sound like the guy he was talking to got really mad.
Probably wasn't it, Gene was laughing at himself from what I could tell
Not sure what you are talking about
For real..... we have been robbed of some more football... sheesh
Again why you mad?
Go to the official site, and listen to Doakinsider podcast and fastforward to around the 18:30 mark.
it's my thread big guy. Don't have to be here if you don't want. Never said I hated Jimbo either. I think I might have even clearly stated I liked him in my first post if I'm not mistaken.
Aint got nothing else to talk about right now so why not the head coach with the goofiest fuggin name in the game talking about why he thinks the polls are unfair when he's voting his team #4
Is that all you can contribute? Why even post? All I'm trying to do is start a discussion
one more week..... one more week
Who gives a shit about what Jimbo thinks of his own team or the stupid BCS
All I can think about is Wilder making Elam his bitch.... you should focus on what matters like I do
I haven't given a single thought to the BCS this season, its been nice outside of watching my squad need 4th quarters to put away 6 loss teams
Jimbo is bringing the lulz. Someone try and explain this:
Fisher thinks the coaches' poll is the most accurate way to evaluate teams, suggesting his fellow coaches provide the most knowledge about how teams have actually performed and, he believes, would vote without bias.
Fisher revealed that his own ballot in the coaches' poll, which he said he spends about two hours per week completing, includes Florida State at No. 4 behind only undefeated Kansas State, Oregon and Notre Dame.
Asked if he believed the Seminoles were the best of the one-loss teams, including SEC leaders Alabama and Georgia, Fisher said, "I think we're as good as any of them."
Well all that is true, FSU can play with anybody
Man to man there isn't many teams more talented than FSU
People seem to forget they have lost 3 senior all conference types and one of them an all american
Still winning, FSU isn't great but nobody else is really either
If Texas A&M can beat Bama in their house, then FSU could beat Bama as well
