If I could gouge my eyes for the poor, I probably would have had a more enjoyable Saturday than watching the Florida-FSU football game.
While making my eyes bleed would have been painful, it would not make the 'Noles faithful cringe on four hours of lost time. Who knew we were watching these headache of subhuman offenses compete for football's version of The Biggest Loser? At least stabbing my eyes out for the poor would have benefited somebody.
And the 'Noles defense couldn't even shut out the Gators.
Amidst a season of missed opportunities, Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher could hang his hat on a 4-0 record against Miami and UF. But "the path to the national championship does not go through the state of Florida" mantra doesn't ring as true as it used to.
The final game of the year notched a win for Florida State, but not much else. I would not say confidence is the program is crumbling, but year three is really when the 'Noles will take off.
Let's finish up year two, though, and find some morsels of hope and signs that point to a run-for-No.1 next year. The winning streak could've started Saturday in the Swamp.
