Jimbo stays at FSU. Whew.

No. He's not going to take the head coaching job at West Virginia. And, yes, we still will probably lose our bowl game with Kentucky.

So let's play the "what if" game. What if Jimbo Fisher (offensive coordinator and head coach-in-waiting) had gone to WV?

Apparently, it was a very close call. Jimbo's from West Virginia. And so obviously, it had to be a tough call for him. If he'd have left, the FSU football program would have taken another HUGE hit. Not only would we have lost Jimbo, we'd have probably lost a good portion of next year's recruiting class (which looks great, by the way), and who knows if friend and offensive line coach RIck Trickett would have gone with him. And who knows? Maybe out of desperation we hire Terry Bowden as our new offensive coordinator. Dogs and cats living together! Total hysteria!

Two years. I think it'll take two years for Jimbo to get us back in the hunt for a national title. I like him. I believe in him. The recruits who are showing up this fall believe in him. If we can ride out the storm of the academic fraud that's currently going on, I think the best times are ahead of us.  But the next season or two will be all about SLOW progress. That's what I think.
