Thank you, Tim Brewster, for speaking truth


It’s nice and refreshing to get some insight and access into the FSU coaching staff.


Tim Brewster, fortunately for us, is giving us tremendous insight into what’s happening in Tallahassee.  For one, he’s making people feel better about the hire of Jeremy Pruitt (aka JP).  Jeremy, a Nick Saban disciple, is arguably being given the keys to the defense with less experience than people would like.  However, it sounds like he’s worth the risk.  The players are bringing new energy to their game and now the offensive coaches are publicly talking about how well Pruitt is doing.  Granted, the defensive foundation, laid by Mark Stoops, was as solid as it gets, it sounds like Pruitt is improving on Stoops’ work.

Meanwhile, on March 24, he sent out a curious tweet about people staying “locked in the past” and I wish we knew what he meant.  I’m not sure if that has anything to do with the disappointment of last year, but I assume it does by the hash tag “win now.”  Win now, as in, it doesn’t matter that you didn’t win last year — win now.  That’s all you can control.  It does seem that mentally, this team needs to break the heartache of last year, but I would think the new coaching leadership should be able to shake that old feeling.  I’m sure Coach Brew will do his part.

    It sounds like these new coaches are hungry and that should translate to the players. In Jan/Feb, I didn’t have very high hope for this season, but now I cant friggin wait to see these guys play!!

      The only thing I don’t like is the feeling that this band won’t be together for very long. As I commented earlier, Trickett’s 2 year extension, plus Brewster and Graham’s 2 year contracts, mean that we are going to re-build the offense in year 5 of Jimbo’s tenure. That’s not a bad thing, because it means Jimbo will no longer be the OC, but I just hope we can hit the ground running and get 2 good years out of these guys. I think 2013 and 2014 should be special–2015 may be a big rebuilding year.
