Willieís Best Start: Report Card

Post

Considering this year is odd due to Covid and all aspects of sports is different I think Willie has really kept us relevant. †I know Kiffin left a good thing here but to embrace the older players with some nťw incoming players is tricky. So far Taggart has been succeeding, putting together a staff that is no nonsense. † †I miss Glen Spencer but Leavittís defense †is a top 5 defense.
If we had more offense I think we beat Marshall and preserve our winning streak but we learn as we go and get better.†

We went from one of the best offense teams in the country to one of the best defensive teams, that is difficult to do at any level. †As you can see with FSU that place was a dumpster fire and it was not all on Taggart, Norvell is struggling And I think FSU is stuck in the past. †This is Taggartís best start at any job. Heís winning, it doesnít matter if itís ugly but closing out games something Partridge couldnít do that left fans like myself angry.†

The remaining games after the Umass game is on the road and the only winning team is Georgia Southern. I think with Posey QB1 and Tronti ready for reps we can run the table. †But unfortunately Marshall will win out and go to the title game and we will be left out which is a shame. †Letís see how that goes.

With a start like this and our new facilities I think Taggart can take our program to nťw heights, like Kiffin said winning is the new thing here and the standard. †Taggart is continuing this trend, †so far what is your grade for coach Taggart? †What bowl game do you think we can possibly get invited to?


My grade: A- we are winning considering setbacks, losing our star QB and change of system along with coaches.

Iíll give Taggart a B+. Coaching-wise, heís been awesome all season in letting Leavitt do his thing on defense. Right now, Iím leaning toward cutting him a break on the offensive play calling the first two weeks because a share of that also falls on Tronti.†

Taggart has like an 89.40 in my book. How does he get up to an 89.50 and therefore an A-? Iíd like to see him tweet more. FAU has a lot of good things going on athletically and academically. Itís always nice having a coach who tweets about games, and then maybe tweets about a big donation or retweets the schoolís tweet about a big rise in admissions.†

I totally get that tweeting isnít for every coach. Just something Iíd like to see him do more of. We were spoiled with Laneís Twitter.†

Taggart gets and A+ he has recruited very well, continued the standard of winning, and put together an amazing staff. We had a huge roster turnover and look at well we are performing, yes the Marshall loss sucks but other than that the program has taken another set forward of overcoming adversity and challenges. Leavitt has put together probably one of the greatest FAU defensive units IN HIS FIRST YEAR OF COACHING HERE.

Taggart is winning here while everyone else said we wouldn't and would mess up the program.



A+

Whatís funny is how many FSU fans and observers were being Debbie Downers. I didnít know much about Taggart except I liked how he hired Briles.

Taggart hired an amazing defensive staff with Leavitt and Patrick. Once he made those hires it was obvious he was very smart. The job isnít done. We still have the goal of the top 25 and maybe deep into it. I am a little worried about the lack of passing.

A+†

I give him a B+ and if we win 3 out of our next 4, I will give him an A-. I will say this on the tweeting. He was very active on social media at other stops. He took alot of criticism when his teams werenít winning. I thought he was just pumping up the programs he was taking over. I think in season he is trying to he as focused as possible. I donít blame him for being off twitter have you seen the FSU fans taking shots at FAU and taggart now. What a miserable fanbase. Smh

Iíll give him a solid B. Heís won the games heís supposed to and the one loss was a tight one at a ranked opponent. I personally think the way to salvage the season is run the table and get into a solid bowl game. Posey brings another dimension to the Offense but I wonder how heíd play against a quality Defense. I find the offensive play calling to be suspect at times but thatís just my opinion. The Defense is probably the best in the conference. Weíll see how it all ends but all eyes should be on that GA Southern road game. That is the remaining test especially since they played two ranked teams tight like we did.

It's weird, I am pleasantly surprised in some ways yet highly concerned in others.  

I think these next 3 games will be very telling.  I'm hoping it doesn't go the way my gut is telling me it will.  

Teambeer is the most knowledgeable FAU sports fan I know, way smarter than me.

I wish the GaSo game was televised.  Feels like sun belt conference has surpassed CUSA. ESPN has even dubbed them Sunbelt Funbelt

I thought it was ESPN+? But I think, for the time being, I agree with your Sun Belt sentiments.
