Florida State Comes Up Short Against Georgia Tech.

Daniel BrommerCorrespondent INovember 2, 2008

What a way to lose a game. Florida State had a great comeback, sealed and won. But wait, a fumble into the end-zone to LOSE the game. Are you kidding me?

The Seminoles fought their way back to a great victory. Although Georgia Tech's option attack was very effective against the number three ranked defense of Florida State, the Noles clawed their way back.

Jermaine Thomas, a true freshman running back who served as the spark for the Noles, carried the team to a potential victory, only to have their hopes shattered by a Marcus Sims fumble into the end-zone that would be recovered by Georgia Tech to seal the victory.

Now here's my question for you Jimbo Fisher. Why in the world would you hand the ball off to Sims, when Thomas was carrying the load with no fumbles. He had proven throughout the day with his nine carries for 130 yards. Why not hand the ball off to him, pack up and go home with a win. Why?

Never in my life, as a Florida State, fan have I ever been that confused with the call.

Granted no game is decided by one play, after all Christian Ponder picked a great day to make freshman mistakes. Antone Smith didn't show up for action, and our usual play makers looked sluggish and confused.

Mickey Andrews looked like he was going against the option for the first time. His defense looked confused and tired, probably because they were on the field for the majority of the time.

Bottom line, Florida State did not show up. What a heart breaker though. I still think Florida State will win the ACC Championship, but they still have a ways to go. And after seeing Florida dismantle Georgia, I'm not looking forward to the FSU—Florida game.
