FSU football didn’t play as well defensively against Georgia Tech as we expected. Here are three takeaways from Adam Fuller’s press conference.
An FSU football defense allowed a true freshman led offense to come into Doak Campbell Stadium and beat them for the second consecutive season.
I know everyone wants to blame the offense for only scoring 13 points, but the defense needs to shoulder just as much, if not more blame.
Offensively, we need it would be a struggle at times with no spring practice, a brand new running back unit and a patchwork offensive line.
The defense is supposed to be the strength of the team, multiple starters returning at every level and they are running a defense similar to what they’ve run the past few years.
Howver, the defense allowed Georgia Tech to average 6.08 yards per play when removing the two kneel plays at the end of the game.
FSU’s defense only had one sack, and two QB hurries, six tackles for a loss, and Georgia Tech converted 8 of 16 third downs.
That’s not going to get it done against any opponent when the FSU offense is struggling. FSU could have easily had 30 points scored against them Saturday night. It’s something that isn’t lost on FSU defensive coordinator Adam Fuller as he spoke with the media after Wednesday’s practice.
Here are my three takeaways from the press conference regarding the defense moving forward.
