The State of Football in the State of Florida

Florida is a fucking mess, and this time it’s not because of the citizens. Florida football is in a god awful state. I feel weird commenting on high school kids, so I wont be mentioning that for legal purposes. From college football up to the pros, it is horrendous. We will start with the north.

Jacksonville:

I was planning this blog all day and was thinking of how Jalen Ramsey was going to ask for a release. I was almost right. Jalen wants out. Bad. He fought with Doug Marrone this weekend on a hard loss to the Texans. the Monday after, he demands to be traded. I thought they were turning around with Gardener leading their offense in the absence of Nick Foles. I mean the dude has a sweet mustache and does weird workouts in a jockstrap. If that isn’t QB 1 material. I don’t know what is.

FSU:

A little further south and I don’t know where to start. Blackman looks like trash. Willie Taggert is likely to finish this year without a job. I could spend this whole blog talking about them, but, short and simple, FSU has a ton of familiar issues with no way to solve them. They need better coaching and better defensive discipline.

University of Florida Gators:

Gator nation. Get over Filipe Frank, he was not that good. He looked better this year, but he is just not that good. His injury is not the end of the world.

UCF:

UCF looks really good. Not undefeated good, but good. They are the fastest team in the NCAA. That makes them hard to keep up with which makes them an interesting matchup every week. Not ‘National Champions’ good, but very good.

USF:

They have been on a roller coaster year. They came in with the Iron-Sharpens-Iron approach. They had a hard loss opening week to Wisconsin and won’t face a challenge until they play BYU and then again at the end of the year with UCF. I don’t know if this approach is going to work for the Bulls.

Buccaneers:

Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Jameis sucks. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Crab legs. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank. Tank.

The U:

I had full faith in the return of the U after the Florida, Week 0 opener. They destroyed Cookman, Wow. They lost by one to an underrated UNC. They haven’t been consistent at all. They need to be better to get better recruits to return to their old form.

The Dolphins:

Honestly, give Rosen the time under center. Let him get the experience he deserves. The Dolphins need to sell a bunch of players high and get a new start, but keep Rosen, he is the future.

I could write a whole paragraph summarizing this, but I want to keep it short and simple. Florida, from North to South, is a shit show. There are clearly teams that break the mold, but the rest are utter garbage. We need a return to Glory in the Sunshine State, but that won’t happen for another five years minimum between drafting and scouting. I guess we will have to just sit back and watch what happens.
