I know one thing that is factual and not make believe. We were leading FSU on the road by 14 points in 2012 and had it not been for a bad pass by Sammy it would have been a 21 point lead with just over 10 minutes left in the 3rd quarter. Yes, they have out recruited us, slightly over the last 3 or 4 years but enough to cause us to get beat like we did last year? I think not. That was a fluke and let's see how well they do against our defense this year. We will have a defense that will compare to the '81 defense and teams could barely make a first down against us that year. You have to be at least 30 years old to have a slight memory of that year but, trust me, I was well over 30 and was at the Georgia game. Ask Hershel who hit him the hardest he ever got hit in college football and see if you recognize the name. Jeff Davis. Our defense this season may be better than that one. I said may be!!!!
