FSU football has entered Georgia Tech’s game as a double-digit betting favorite. The Noles have lost their four consecutive opening goals since 2017.
The FSU football team started the match against Georgia Tech with a promise. The special teams covered the kick-off swarming like the FSU teams of yesteryear.
The defense pulled out a timely interception and the attack went straight onto the pitch and scored a touchdown to take a 7-0 early lead.
However, after that it seemed to go downhill, apart from the special teams blocking two baskets and an extra point.
James Blackman was inconsistent, the wide receivers had more falls, and the FSU defense let a freshman get his way with them for the most part.
The Noles were 1
It was disappointing, the team seemed to lack determination and resorted to allowing the teams to dominate it in the second half.
FSU football fans also expressed their disappointment on social media:

People killed me when I said this was a 5-6 win roster based on zero upgrades to QB and OL, minimal upgrade to LB, and no DE pressure. The coaches have been significantly updated, the roster has not yet arrived.

I wrote how this was the most important game in the program and you will see why I wrote it in the coming weeks. This type of loss gives players the same feeling as the last two years.
It makes all the so-called buy-ins they had questionable and it will be more difficult to sell recruits in the future by looking at how they looked in the game.
There were multiple injuries in the game on the offensive line. Joshua Kaindoh got injured early in the game and didn’t come back.
There were some bright spots in the first half of the game, but the second half was so similar to the last two years that it’s scary.
Will Mike Norvell be able to make the necessary changes during hello week with Miami on deck? It better make them quick, otherwise fans may be cheering on a COVID-19 rescue of some kind.
It’s ridiculous for the defense to allow a freshman to have that kind of success against them. FSU defensive coordinator Adam Fuller also has some explanations to make.
