Stick a Fork in 'Em

I cannot describe the demise of f$u any better than than this tidbit written by Corey Clark of the Tallahassee Democrat on nolesports.com after last weekend's drubbing:

"But here’s what I really want to discuss.
Here’s a stat that might ruin your
morning. Or afternoon. Or week. So take a deep breath before reading the next
line.
25-23.
That’s the record of the Florida State football program
against Division 1-A competition since Oct. 15 of 2005 (which was the night the
No. 4 Seminoles lost on the road to an unranked Virginia team).
Read that
again. Let it sink it in, if you have a strong stomach. 25-23.
Now, think
about this. If you throw out wins against bottom-tier 1-A programs Duke, Troy,
UAB, Rice and Western Michigan, that record becomes 19-23.
That’s nineteen
wins. And twenty three losses. For the same program that dominated an entire
decade and played in national championship games like it was its birthright. Now
it’s the very definition of a .500 program. It has been for the better part of
four years now."

Great researching! It's always a bonus when we can realize something this astounding has happened to that once proud program and rub their face in it.
Though, I still remember the days (almost anytime prior to Pell and Spurrier arriving) when these stats were closer to our reality........your post put a smile on my face.

One of Saurian Sagacity's primary purposes is to spread joy at the expense of others, hopefully f$u, scUM, UT, UGA, etc.

Happy to brighten your day.
